The Earth Sciences


Geology is the scientific study of the Earth’s land forms and the processes by which it is shaped and changed. There is an emphasis on the processes of deposition and erosion which has formed the surface that we know today. It also studies the chemical composition of inorganic elements and minerals formed by heat, crystallization, and pressure. The rates of erosion, deposition, and decay found on the Earth are consistent with a planet only thousands of years old. The rapid formation and deformation of sedimentary layers give evidence to a worldwide flood.


Hydrology is the section of science that studies the physical characteristics, mechanics, and dynamics of water and it’s effects upon the Earth. Special attention is given to the hydrologic cycle close to the surface of the Earth. Available water is one of the strongest factors in a habitable environment for life. The actions of water has produced the Earth’s current surface features more than any other physical process and gives strong evidence for a worldwide flood.


Meteorology is the branch of science focusing on the Earth’s atmosphere and weather. It focuses on structure and dynamics, long term atmospheric patterns and influences, and the day to day activity in the lower stratosphere. The field of meteorology gives support to a special creation and a worldwide flood through the drastic changes that have occurred in the atmosphere including reduced oxygen and pressure as well as the existence of the polar ice caps.

Is the Threat of Global Warming Scientifically Valid?

On Jan. 16, 2014, NASA and NOAA declared that 2014 is the Warmest Year on Record and proceed to blame CO2 emissions as the source of global warming. Global warming is a hot topic among secular society and it drives many government and private programs. But was 2014 really the warmest? Is CO2 really to blame? Does a creationist perspective change our view on what is happening?
