This category seeks to present scientific evidence for catastrophic events in earth's history. This evidence opposes the prevailing theory of naturalism based on the assumption that current natural processes occurred in the same manner and at the same rate throughout the history of this universe. The interpretation of the evidence generally favors a short chronology or a young history of the earth, measured in thousands rather than billions of years. In particular, most of the sites in this category present evidence for a deluge of such proportions as to validate the account of a world-wide flood account in Genesis.
Douglas E. Cox provides an overview of evidence for a catastrophic flood. Includes discussion of the nature of the flood, with a list of some proposed flood models. Correlates worldwide legends of the deluge with the biblical account.
Dr. Walt Brown presents evidence for creation from published statements by scientists in the life sciences, astronomical and physical sciences and earth sciences. The online version of Brown's thoroughly documented book begins with the "Contents" link about halfway down the navigation bar.
Douglas E. Cox explains as the effects of currents of the deluge, rather than the results of glaciations, postulating that their distribution patterns provide information about the way in which the flood waters retreated from the land. [Creation Research Society Quarterly, Volume 16(3): 154-162.]
Arthur V. Chadwick of Loma Linda University discusses transportation and deposition of megabreccias as evidence of significant catastrophic activity in the past not readily explainable in terms of contemporary processes.
A report written by the Institute for Creation Research that explains an example of catastrophism with the eruption of Mount St. Helens in Washington State on May 18, 1980.
Problems in the conventional glacial interpretation of the drift, and drift landforms. A revision of an article originally published in the Creation Research Society Quarterly, 13(1): 25-34, June 1976, and reprinted in Corliss, William R. 1980. * Unknown Earth: A Handbook of Geological Enigmas.* The Sourcebook Project, Glen Arm, MD. p. 33-50]
