Creation Symposium

Announcing the 22nd Annual Creation Symposium at The Master's College:

Sands of Time

Evidence of Earth's History & Noah's Flood in the Coconino Sandstone

One of the major arguments against Noah’s Flood is the existence of the Coconino Sandstone. These buff-colored sand piles (up to 300 feet thick in the Grand Canyon) have been used by many scientists to discredit Young Earth Creationism. After all, how could desert sand dunes be present in the rock record if Noah’s Flood laid down the strata of the Grand Canyon? Dr. John Whitmore of Cedarville University has made some exciting discoveries demonstrating that these formations were made underwater and not in a desert setting. Come to the Creation Symposium and hear about Dr. Whitmore’s research and the research of other respected geology research scientists.
