The Rocks Don't Lie: A Geologist Investigates Noah's Flood

How the secret of the Bible's maximum tale formed geology: a MacArthur Fellow provides a stunning point of view on Noah's Flood.

In Tibet, geologist David R. Montgomery heard a neighborhood tale a couple of nice flood that bore a impressive similarity to Noah's Flood. Intrigued, Montgomery started investigating the world's flood tales and, drawing from ancient works by way of theologians, average philosophers, and scientists, chanced on the counter-intuitive function Noah's Flood performed within the improvement of either geology and creationism. Steno, the grandfather of geology, even invoked the Flood in laying geology's founding rules in response to his observations of northern Italian landscapes.

Centuries later, the founders of contemporary creationism established their irrational view of a world flood on a perceptive critique of geology. With an explorer's eye and a fresh method of either religion and technology, Montgomery takes readers on a trip throughout landscapes and cultures.

In the method we find the illusive nature of fact, no matter if considered throughout the lens of technology or faith, and the way it replaced via historical past and maintains altering, even today.

This would have made the ice sheet thickest in its windward part. Its maximum thickness, of course, would have been that thickness at which equilibrium was reached among the three factors of rate of accumulation, rate of flow, and rate of wastage.

In the Eliot Glacier on Mt. 7 feet. 9 In parts of the terminal zone the ice becomes so thin that the zone of flow described in Chapter 2 down is to the pinched out, leaving the zone of fracture extending right ground. Here the ice is stagnant (dead) and devoid of further flow. Where drastic thinning occurs over a wide terminal belt of ice that overlies irregular ground, the high ground gradually appears above the surface of the thinning ice, just as islands appear in a lake whose 8 9 level is falling.
