Nice chapter if you ever want to visit the Grand Canyon area.
The discussion on Meteor Crater is a real laugh. I can’t verify the report that it was thought to be volcanic, and that uniformitarianists were against the drilling attempts to find the meteor. But this has nothing to do with uniformitarianism or catastrophism. Yes, the event itself was catastrophic, but all throughout the uniformitarian history of the earth, there have been many catastrophic events. See my article on this.
At Zion National Park, one can see an excellent example of an ancient, wind-blown desert, the Navajo Sandstone. The authors question its desert origin, but present no evidence. As we have already seen in Chapter 3, the authors use this “desert” sandstone to disprove that the Coconino Sandstone in the Grand Canyon is desert in origin, thus they contradict themselves between this chapter and chapter 3.
If you are not a Christian, and you have been holding out on making a decision for Christ because the Church always preached a message that was contrary to what you saw in the scientific world, then rest assured that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, and you can believe in Christ and receive salvation, while still believing in an old earth.

Are you a Christian who believes in young earth creationism? Now that we have shown the many difficulties of the young earth creation science model in this and many other articles, how does this impact your Christian life? If you are a young earth creationism believer, click here.
