This book has been the popular source of lies repeated by thousands of young earth creationists about the Grand Canyon. In the photos below we can see how gross, and obvious they are. On the first example are supposed geology students from the Institute for Creation Research. The principle author of "monument" claims, "All these layers had to be soft and pliable at the same time in order for these layers to be folded without fracturing. The folded Tapeats Sandstone can be seen in Carbon Canyon (top)." This is repeated elsewhere, "The whole sequence of sedimentary layers through which Grand Canyon cuts has been bent and folded without fracturing. This includes the Tapeats Sandstone, located at the bottom of the sequence. (A 90° fold in the eastern Grand Canyon is pictured here.)"

The second photo is marked to show the extensive stress fracturing that should be obvious to anyone claiming to be a geologist.

A new book just published by a group of professional geologists who are also evangelical Christians exposes this lie, and many others;

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.

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.

Fantastic book, full of strong research and backed up with both scientific discovery and scripture. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in seeing how Noah's flood left its evidence clearly here on earth -- the Grand Canyon is most impressive in that regard.

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.

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.

Very comprehensive but at the same time readable. Loaned my underlined copy out and not returned. Ordered a second copy. No regrets!
