Origins of a Tropical Island II: The Long Road from Lava to Colonization

The new volcano (black material) is taking over the old island (green and yellow portion of the island).

Imagine a tropic island paradise with beautiful beaches and thousands of plants and birds. Chances are you are imagining an island that formed as the result of volcanic activity. Examples would include the Caribbean islands, the Polynesian islands, and the Hawaiian Islands. But imagine what those islands looked like when they first formed. Rather than […]

mars-globe-water-past

News of evidence that Mars was once host to a volume of water equivalent of the Arctic ocean on Earth has been hitting the newswires.  This might sound like new news but this is really just a more comprehensive analysis of work that has been ongoing for several years.  Preliminary analysis had already suggested that […]

Origins of a Tropical Island: Instant Paradise or a Long Chaotic Process?

New-japan-island-volcano-merging-nishino-shima

In November of 2013, over 600 miles south of Tokyo, a volcanic eruption formed a new island. That new island continued to grow for over a year, eventually joining itself to the neighboring island of Nishino-shima, a volcanic island formed long ago. Today, volcanic activity continues to cause this new ocean-island to expand bringing it […]

Today the Dead Sea has shrunk to modern historical lows of 1400 feet below sea level. The Sea of Galilee is itself 700 feet below sea level.   Residents of the Middle East today are concerned with how much more the Dead Sea will shrink. But what about an important geological question: has there ever been […]

Smoking Gun Evidence of an Ancient Earth: GPS Data Confirms Radiometric Dating

My last post, on the tectonic origins of the Dead Sea and Jordan Valley, brought me face-to-face once again with one of the most striking pieces of evidence for an ancient earth that I am aware of. Take a look at this graph. This graph shows the smoking gun. Smoking gun evidence of what? That […]

Rewinding the Clock: An Asteroid Family History

Artist conception of the breakup of an asteroid into separate family members.

You might think of the asteroid belt between Jupiter and Mars as a assortment of space junk floating randomly in space. There are millions of asteroids of which more than 100,000 have been measured and mapped by astronomers. But analysis of those asteroids has shown that there are groups of asteroids that are related to one another and are referred to family members

Dr. Jason Lisle of the Institute of Creation Research (ICR) presented a seminar entitled “Astronomy Reveals Creation” at this year’s PCA (Presbyterian Church in America) General Assembly which took place  two weeks ago.  Some billed this as the young-earth follow-up to a seminar given at last year’s PCA GA by Dr. Greg Davidson who presented […]

The YDB Event: The Most Recent Global Catastrophe in Human History?

The chebli9ska meteorite atmospheric explosion as caught on dashcam of truck..

Remember the meteor that exploded over Russia earlier this year? A 50 foot diameter object exploded 14 miles above the surface of the earth and created a shock wave that injured 1500 people and damaged more than 7000 buildings. Despite the drama, the lasting effects on the earth were minimal and only small pieces of the meteorite made it to the surface of the earth.

The Worlds Largest Rock Tumbler and the Age of the Earth

Atacama-wind-erosion-rock

Last year I wrote about the strange rubbing boulders of the Atacama desert.  In that post I relayed the story of these strange large boulders that are found scattered in a high valley in the Atacama desert.  That desert is one of the driest places on earth with the area that these particular boulders lie […]
