How is one of the most well known and frequently visited national parks being used by creationists to argue for Noah’s Flood as a historical event? From presentations at geological conferences to rafting trips, creationists are increasingly staking a claim to the Grand Canyon’s geology to promote the idea of a 6,000 year-old Earth.
Steven Newton, Programs & Policy Director of the National Center for Science Education, will explain what creationists say about Grand Canyon geology, why they say it, and how science shows their claims to be unsupportable. Please join us at this FREE “Skeptalk” presented by the Bay Area Skeptics.
