Grand Canyon, Did Noah’s Flood create it?

The fantastic thing about the claims science makes about the formation of the Grand Canyon, is that a river that currently flows through it took 5 million years (5,000,0000 years) to cut out all that you see. But there is a visual problem with this claim. You see that means that the top of the canyon has been exposed to weather wear for 5 million years. So the horizontal wear you see at the bottom, should not exist at the top. But as you notice in the picture above, the horizontal wear is almost as deep at the top as it is at the bottom of the canyon. How did that happen? 5 million years of vertical weathering should have already worn the horizontal wear away. It should not be visible, but it is. In fact as you study the picture, would you not think that this wear looks more around 4,400 years (since flood) instead of 5 million?

Also, wear from a river over 5 million years would have left evidence. Where is all the sediment that has to wash out while the river slowly carved the canyon? You see the flood was in the process of receding back into the earth’s crust. The raging waters would have carried the sediments with it into the earth’s crust leaving no evidence. And that is exactly what we see. But to get all that water to carve the Grand Canyon and take away the sediments, you would have to have an opening in the earth’s crust (a fault line). Is there one around the Grand Canyon giving the flood waters a place to run off?

Yes there is a “major fault line”. It would have to be a “major fault line” to take on all the water from the flood and carve out the Grand Canyon. Where you see the red arrow, it’s pointing at a major fault line that runs right through the Grand Canyon. And to top it off, we now have enough water for the flood which you can read here: Water for Noah’s Flood (link).

Also it seems that because of the overwhelming evidence of a watery death of dinosaurs, science is just now peeking into this possibility: New Scientist (link).

Say hello to the newest resident of the Ararat Ridge Zoo: Gomer the dromedary camel! 🐪

Gomer has transferred to the Ark Encounter from the Creation Museum, where he’s resided since 2008. He is retired from rides, so he will live here with our three llamas and two alpacas to create an exhibit displaying the amazing variation within the camelid biblical kind. Be sure to stop by and see Gomer during your next visit!

Good news! 🎉 The Ararat Ridge Zoo’s petting area is now open from 10:00 - 5:00 every day! 

Our 25 goats like Abednego here can’t wait for guest interaction again. We have sinks and hand sanitizing stations as well as a bathroom facility in the zoo for guests to wash their hands before and after interacting with the goats.

Be sure to swing by the petting area during your visit to the Ark Encounter!

Origins and Independence

How old is the USA? This is not meant as a trick question. While we could make a case for several different dates of the United States’ founding, Americans celebrate the Fourth of July as the nation’s birthday.

Given the date of 4 July 1776 as the declaration of the nation’s independence, it’s easy to calculate the age of the United States of America.

Imagine that we didn’t know the date and instead had to rely on natural processes such as population growth or technological level to estimate the country’s age. How reliable would these natural calendars be? They would only be as reliable as the assumptions put into their model’s framework. 

While a natural process might be useful in some situations (given correct assumptions), the only way to know the precise age is by a reliable witness. We base age on the testimony of a reliable witness, whether it’s a birth certificate for a person or the Declaration of Independence for the United States of America.

How old is planet earth? Some believe that natural processes can provide an estimate for the age of the earth. The only way to know with certainty is by the testimony of a reliable witness. The plain words of God in the Bible show that the earth is less than 10,000 years old. There is much scientific evidence to collaborate this age also.

We can celebrate the fact that we have reliable witnesses to the founding of nations and to the founding of the planet itself.

Current CRS-sponsored Research Projects, Part 7

Dr Gene Chaffin, vice-president of the Creation Research Society listed several of the current research projects that have been awarded grants from the Creation Research Society. He states, “Each grant is awarded based on review and vote by the members of the research committee. We are grateful to the donors who have made these grants possible.” 

Numerical Model Development of Earth’s Mantle Dynamics during the Genesis Flood: Multiphase Mantle Compositions and the Effects on Solid Mantle’s Dynamics 

Computer simulations of Catastrophic Plate Tectonics (CPT) will be performed using improved numerical modeling approaches to study the realistic rock deformational behavior under conditions of the Genesis Flood. The model will include the multiple mineral phases of the Earth’s mantle, and thereby will take into account the effects of those phases on overall rock’s mechanical properties. The microscopic features (e.g., grain size, recrystallization, and phase transformation) and the associated macroscopic thermal and mechanical properties of the rocks will be treated in more detail than ever before, in an attempt to model runaway plate movements. 

This study will provide crucial new understanding on how the microstructures and mechanical properties of multiple mineral phases cooperatively acted together to produce the extreme weakening that allowed the global Flood cataclysm to unfold as it did.

Catastrophism in the Type Area of the Lance Formation (Maastrichtian, Cretaceous) 

In Wyoming there is an Edmontosaurus dinosaur bone bed in the Upper Maastrichtian Lance Formation. The exact stratigraphic position of the bone bed in the Lance is of interest, seeing as it is very close to the famed Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary (the uppermost stratigraphic record of the dinosaurs, and a possible Flood/post-Flood boundary). However, since the stratigraphy of the roughly 2500-foot-thick Lance has never been worked out, the stratigraphic position of the bone bed in the Lance is unknown. Both the bone bed and associated strata appear to be underwater debris flows covering at least hundreds, and perhaps thousands, of square miles, and having traveled at least scores, and probably hundreds of miles. This, combined with evidence of massive earthquake activity, suggests the Lance Formation was formed in the Flood or soon thereafter. 

The research will look for evidence of these types of catastrophism in the region.
