You know, I grew up in country like this.

My dad and I were riding horses ...

... after these amazing high mountain lakes.

We rode back to some pretty remote wilderness areas.

With incredible streams, and meadows, and wildlife.

I love it here. "B"

look at this canyon.

It reminds me of the Grand Canyon.

It is this small stream,

and these steep canyon walls.

How long do you suppose it would take ...

... for as stream as this small to remove this much material ...

... and cut the canyon this deep ?

This rock has a story, as you and I have.

it came from somewhere.

Many of these rocks have been dated to the

350,000 years old, reaching 2 million.

That is very old.

But it might surprise you to know ...

... that all geological formations we see here,

cannons, layers, and even plants,

They are younger than me.

When I was born, none of this was here,

but there was a large forest hundreds of feet deep ...

... of where we stand now.

In fact, before 1980, most people ...

... had never even heard of Mount St. Helena.

It was on May 18 that year ...

... molten rock that created a steam explosion ...

... with the force of 20 million tons of dynamite.

Avalanche debris and other flows of the eruption were deposited ...

... and all those layers quickly reached 600 feet thick.

A couple of years later there were more volcanic activity ...

... which created a mudflow that separated this entire canyon.

step also opened through the bedrock, all in a couple of days.

Is not it amazing what a little information about the past ...

... you can do to help change the way you watch this ...

... and present world around you?

Many people assume a lot about ...

... in the history of the Earth around us.

The question is, how these assumptions affect ...

... the way we see the story?

But more importantly, what role they play in ...

... the way we view science and the Bible?

Did God create the world in a few days or thousands of millions of years?

Is humanity descended from primates ...

... or God created us instantly, his image?

Was there a global flood that destroyed the Earth ...

... or is that a myth?

In other words, is Genesis story?

When we think about the history of Earth,

There are many things to consider.

But one of the most fascinating is the story of the Flood.

It came over the whole Earth covered in water?

Genesis says that the waters prevailed ...

... on Earth to such an extent that the mountains ...

... under the whole heaven they were covered.

So if the Flood was truly global,

Was not there much evidence?

I had heard from a scientist that happened ...

... more than 40 years studying this question.

When I spoke with him, he said there was an excellent place ...

... where we could see evidence of global Flood.

Steve, I have to admit, I've been here several times ...

... but every time I come it's amazing.

In addition to my home,

the Grand Canyon is my favorite place on Earth.

So, Steve, tell me, what do you see here?

When we see the Grand Canyon, we ...

... the inside story of the earth beneath our feet.

And we have a kind of layered cake, right? Strata ...

... that they have been eroded to our advantage to see ...

... the inner structure of the Earth.

These same layers are in Colorado,

Also in Illinois, and Pennsylvania.

So when you say sedimentary strata,

Are you talking about the layers we see?

Yes. The lower layers are formed first.

These are grains of sediment were mixed, separated,

and flowed here from different directions ...

... and they piled one on another.

And then, of course, become naturally in rock.
