Seismic Testimony

While rummaging around I came across a link to this interesting Christian site on the subject of creation and evolution. If you're at all interested in that subject, don't let the site's odd-looking front page put you off. If you dig a little deeper you can find a lot of fascinating information about the innumerable failings of 'Flood Geology'. Glenn R. Morton is a graduate of the Institute of Creation Science who discovered when he went to work in petroleum geology that much of what he had been taught - and some of what he'd written himself in 'creation science' journals - was false. The most incontestable facts of geology are massively inconsistent with the notion that the record of the rocks is one of a single, recent, global cataclysm. He testifies:

Nothing that young-earth creationists had taught me about geology turned out to be true. I took a poll of my ICR graduate friends who have worked in the oil industry. I asked them one question.

"From your oil industry experience, did any fact that you were taught at ICR, which challenged current geological thinking, turn out in the long run to be true? ,"

That is a very simple question. One man, Steve Robertson, who worked for Shell grew real silent on the phone, sighed and softly said 'No!' A very close friend that I had hired at Arco, after hearing the question, exclaimed, "Wait a minute. There has to be one!" But he could not name one. I can not name one. No one else could either.

The personal accounts he quotes help to explain how counterproductive all this stuff is.
