Anyone who has ever gazed down into the immensity of the Grand Canyon has surely asked himself, "HOW in the world did this ever happen!"
If the standard "millions and millions of years" explanation leaves you with questions, read this book.
If you want a thorough, intellectually satisfying survey of the Grand Canyon, and the theories of it's origin, this book is for you. If you liked Whitcomb and Morris's "The Genesis Flood", you will like this book.
A man who believes the Bible, knows geology, and has carefully studied the Grand Canyon presents his findings in a very readable, interesting, and well illustrated book aimed at the general reader.

This is one of the best books to start with to understand rapid transfomration of the entire planet by water. It presents a balanced view, as in : Here is why we all thought it took millions of years for these formations ( layers of distinctly identifiable soils and minerals ) to slowly accumulate by meandering reivers, and even meandering seas...and HERE is strong, compelling evidence that these layers were laid down very rapidly...as in one year, all 3,000 feet of the Canyon!

This also explains why at Snow Mass Colorado, where a rich find of Mammoth and Mastadon bones were recently discovered...alogn with still barely decayed vegetation!...how could that be 70,000 years old ? This will solve that puzzle quite handily.

Now I never fail to get sneering commentary from Uniformitarians, whose belief system includes 200 million years for life to form accidentally...whose belief is so strong, that evolution has 'evolved' into a sacared religion to them. Do NOt comment on this and other books like it until you have thoroughly examined the evidence for yourself, & read the other books on the subject. This IS science...with repeateable experiments and findings the world over. I do not want to hear you angrily insult this scientific research, nor your vehement defense of your "religion of evolution". Evolution has been and is now on "Liquified" soil. The more you struggle to defend it, the deeper you go.

Lots of eye opening information. To bad you after dig yourself to find it. Schools, the media and people just don't want you to hear about other possibilities. I so enjoy the argument. It's like a tennis match watching it go back and forth. I think it's 30 love for creation. Uniformitarianism has more unanswered points and that's not in the game sense. The other areas of the argument favor creation even more than the studies of the rocks, but that's another book.
The meat of this entire matter rests in the ultimate claim of each sides argument. One says I am my own and the other says you are not. One is an extreme faith issue, the other is a paradox.

The same believers who think that the universe could not be created suddenly by a Big Bang (it must be created by an unseen magical supreme being), somehow believe that an ancient tale of a Great Flood somehow magically created the Grand Canyon, not 6,000 years ago, but hundreds of millions. It is surprising that their explanation doesn't include the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, aliens and UFOS too. See Richard Dawkins "Top 5 creationist claims about Grand Canyon: The Great Unconformity was caused by Noah's Flood (three parts)

I really enjoyed Steven Austin's analytical approach to the study of the Grand Canyon as a result of natural catastrophe. Like other good scientist such as Kurt Wise, Austin applies a critical method to creation research and is more interested in exploring the details of his viewpoint rather than simply discrediting others. A good read.

This book has very enlightening perspective on the creatioist view of the Grand Canyon. I highly recommend reading this if you are geology nut.
