The Breathtaking Inanity of Flood Geology: Geology, Creationism & Evolution

Dr. Donald Prothero

Have you ever had to deal with a Creationist who takes the Genesis accounts literally, and who insists that the biblical story of Noah’s flood can account for all the geologic features of the earth, as well as all the creatures that survived on the ark? In this lecture, Dr. Prothero will not only discuss the biblical and logistical problems with “flood geology,” but also show how creationists’ conception of the geologic record would mean that we would never find coal, oil, gas or other natural resources that our society needs. In this engaging and richly illustrated lecture, based on his new book, Dr. Donald Prothero — one of the world’s most respected paleontologists — will provide a wealth of evidence and answers to creationist challenges to science. If you are interested in defending science education don’t miss this entertaining and though intellectually rigorous history of the geological and fossil record.
