Key Points To Remember

  • Young-earth explanations for Noah's Flood, biodeposits, and other geological phenomena consistently fall short.
    • Such phenomena simply cannot be explained unless the Earth is accepted to be very old.
    • All geological evidence points to an old Earth.
  • Geologists work with precision equal to or greater than that used by astronomers.
    • Since geologists work with things that are "right here," their capacity for accuracy is great.
