The Creation Tour

Thursday, June 20, 2013

Today I went with a group from church to The Creation Tour at Glen Eyrie in Colorado Springs. That was an interesting program. They told how the layers of earth were formed after the flood, how the larger stones and smaller stones were moved into place. They showed in the video the fossils and how the fish fossils in places like Wyoming still had all the fins on them, so they couldn't have sat and rotted over a long period of time.

They talked about the rock from a volcano in Hawaii that erupted 50 years ago and some from Mount St. Helens that was from 1980 that was sent to Europe for age identification. The result was that the Hawaiian rock was 1 million years old and that from Mount St. Helens was from 800,000 years ago.

Then we went on a short hike (maybe 45 minutes) and looked at the stone formations on the property. I would like to find a book that tells all they were talking about today.

After the tour we went to a place called The Mason Jar for lunch. I had the small catfish meal and brought half home for dinner tonight. I really enjoyed the day

    There is nothing wrong with this blog, I find it rather interesting. And shoot I know some of my blogs are based on hearsay, and may not be 100% accurate, in fact I know they may not be. I just report my experience and others experiences. Base it on informative information, AND cool pictures! If we all were scholars and scientists, how boring would we be? Keep blogging! MJ

    glad you had a good time....the tidbit about the fish fossils having fins proving they did not rot was incorrect, but that's your guide's error, not yours...sounds like a fun trip

    It sounds like you had an awesome day today and that is really what counts! Whether anyone else believes as you do is pretty irrelevant in my opinion;. We are all entitled to our own beliefs and i didn't think you were pushing your beliefs onto anyone! Glad you had a good time emoticon

    Don't worry about what she said because she needs to look up this info for herself and find that they are telling her wrong and what the team told you is correct and they also did that carbon 14 on a live mollusk show radiocarbon ages of up to 2300 years.
    So just don't listen to what some Christians that don't want to believe the whole Bible.

    The program was by geologists. I don't see where I have said anything that is so wrong. The only thing I said about the years was with the two stone samples that they dated as much older than they are because they knew how old they were since they were from fairly recent eruptions. The stone was liquid when the eruptions happened and then hardened. I even didn't say how they said the different layers of the earth were laid down so how am I saying something that they can find so wrong. I haven't pushed anything on anyone and if they don't choose to believe what I do, that is their right. All I did was share the day in my blog, but maybe I should not write the blogs at all.

    Those are interesting tidbits of information. I'm a Christian, too, and I definitely believe in creation, but I'm not sure the science they told you about is valid. You may wish to consider looking some of this stuff up for verification before sharing it with your non-Christian friends (okay, so before evangelizing the lost! haha) because if they're super knowledgeable about paleontology and geology, you could lose all credibility before you've even shared the Gospel.

    Just a thought. :-)
