NEW BOOK EXPLAINING HOW GEOLOGY CONFRONTS THE CREATIONISTS

“The Rocks Don’t Lie” A Geologist investigates Noah’s Flood
By David R. Montgomery
Professor Montgomery (a Genius Award winner) does a terrific job with his chapters that highlight various floods that happened in ancient all the way up to fairly modern times. He has visited many of geology’s interesting sites including the Grand Canyon, Tibet, and the Black Sea. He does a great explanation of Wegener’s struggle to explain the earth’s movement with the concept of Continental Drift. He brings to light the silliness of the Creation Museum that “sheds light on the 20th century resurrection of creationism.” However, there’s almost too much of the creationists in America (where they mostly hang out)although he does an excellent job as an overview of geology for the layman. And he sums up: “a literal reading of the Bible still leaves a lot of room for creative interpretation.” His closing sentence: “We may argue endlessly about how to interpret the Bible, but the rocks don’t lie. They tell it like it was.”
