A Grand Origin for Grand Canyon by Michael Oard

By Michael Oard

The writer presents an intensive assessment of the starting place of 1 of the Earth’s most famed icons, Grand Canyon. mentioning abundant geomorphological facts, he attributes the canyon’s formation to occasions that happened close to the tip of the Noachian Flood. He exhibits that sooner than the canyon itself might have been eroded, hundreds of thousands of ft of strata have been got rid of by way of tremendous sheet erosion. Then he develops the speculation that the canyon was once quickly carved by way of late-Flood channelized erosion. Oard additionally cites proof which demonstrates that the evolutionists’ uniformitarian rules are very faraway from delivering passable reasons. He additionally examines many of the creationist hypotheses, together with the dam-breach speculation, and reveals all of them to be wanting.

At first we might be placing the puzzle pieces in the wrong spot. But hopefully, with more information (puzzle pieces that fit together) we can place all the puzzle pieces into the correct positions. After a while, with repeated evaluation of new data, one hypothesis should appear much more likely than do others. But even then, the best we can hope for is a reasonable hypothesis related to the past. Unfortunately, all historical hypotheses remain tentative. 24 I have found that after piecing together the clues (data), the origin of Grand Canyon by late-Flood channelized runoff is currently the most satisfying hypothesis.

A man was dying from a cerebral hemorrhage, his wife and daughter beside his bed. Death is a daily occurrence, but this particular man’s death was notable because it had not happened much earlier in his life.
