Britain's Giant Hillside Chalk Figures

Britain's Giant Hillside Chalk Figures | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
A large portion of Southern England is made up of chalk. This white limestone are the shells of tiny marine organisms that lived and died in the seas that once covered much of Britain some 90 million years ago. As time progressed, layers of calcium carbonate built up and got compacted into a solid layer of rock. Later, tectonic movements lifted the sea floor out of the sea and these became the magnificent downland in south of England.

Ezekiel’s End-of-Days Vision Revealed: Dead Sea Coming to Life | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
For those who have visited the lowest point on the face of the earth, Ezekiel’s end-of-days prophecy of the Dead Sea coming to life seems impossible, yet recently, scientists have been shocked to discover that the sinkholes appearing around the sea are quickly filling up with fish and other forms of life previously unseen in the inhospitable region.

The desiccation of the Mediterranean Sea is generally accepted by uniformitarian scientists today, although this article will show that the idea is essentially an ‘outrageous hypothesis’.

How Salt Helped Win the Civil War

How Salt Helped Win the Civil War | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
But Avery Island isn’t an island at all. Surrounded by marsh, it’s a massive salt dome. That salt sat relatively undisturbed until the Civil War, when it suddenly became a precious commodity.

Innovative Ocean Cleanup System Launches First Vessel Into The Pacific

Innovative Ocean Cleanup System Launches First Vessel Into The Pacific | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is the world's largest collection of floating trash. It lies between Hawaii and California.

The Ocean Cleanup, a cleanup campaign created by Dutch teenager, Boyan Slat, has launched its first vessel to rid more than 50% of the trash in this location, which is often described as "larger than Texas."

Geologist finds massive Alaskan oil well on a hunch

Geologist finds massive Alaskan oil well on a hunch | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
Sometimes risky bets pay off in a big way. The theory was tested by one small Denver-based petroleum producer, and proved to be true.
YEC Geo's insight:
Boom and bust, boom and bust--geology is such an odd scientific field.  In no other science pathway is gambling such an ubiquitous career opportunity.

Dragons on Noahs Ark

Dragons on Noahs Ark | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it

"Within the eight pieces telling the story of the Flood are two tapestries showing the animals going onto and coming off Noah’s Ark. Many of them are easily recognizable as good depictions of their living counterparts today: lions, camels, cows, and various types of birds. But there are also animals that look distinctly like dragons."

YEC Geo's insight:
Similar to the inclusion of dragons among the list of ordinary well-known animals included in the Chinese New Year cycles.

A Failed Test of Fossil Record Interpretation –

A Failed Test of Fossil Record Interpretation – | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
A team of researchers from the Florida Museum of Natural History, the University of Bologna, the University of the Bahamas, and the State University of New York at Geneseo decided to test how well we know things like the mass extinction events discussed in the textbook I just quoted. They took a series of geological samples from the Po Plain in Italy that are supposed to represent what went on over the past 126,000 years. They specifically examined the mollusks in those samples, which leave behind hard shells.

It makes no sense for the surrounding countryside to be eroded down hundreds of metres over millions of years, while the inselberg shows little sign of erosion in all that time.

Will there be another Ice Age?

Will there be another Ice Age? | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
Today, ice sheets and glaciers cover approximately 15 million km2 of the earth’s total land mass—roughly 10% of its land surface. Both young-earth and old-earth scientists agree that this is left over from an ice age. But there is much disagreement as to the number of ice ages that have occurred throughout Earth’s history, as well as over what causes an ice age to start and end. A proper understanding of these issues will help us with regards to whether Earth might face another ice age in the future.

The Fantasy Maps That Put the World's Tallest Mountains Side by Side

The Fantasy Maps That Put the World's Tallest Mountains Side by Side | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
In the 19th century, cartographers had a penchant for plotting some of the world’s tallest peaks together on single charts. The results were imaginary landscapes; some placed all of the world’s mountains into a single, massive range, while others evoke cross-sections, with the mountains stacked inside one other like geological nesting dolls.

Robert Peary’s Meteorite And Minik

Robert Peary’s Meteorite And Minik | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
About 10,000 years ago a large lump of extraterrestrial rock veered too close to the earth and got sucked into the planet’s gravitational field. As it slashed through the dense atmosphere, the intense heat generated weakened the structure of the iron meteorite and it exploded into several smaller pieces. Several pieces fell across Greenland embedding themselves in the vast ice sheet. Others fell in the ocean near Baffin Bay. The meteorite is estimated to have weighed 100 tones before it exploded.

Disharmonious Fossils

Disharmonious Fossils | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it

"Fossil formations across the globe lend credence to the lack of harmony in the fossil record.


The Thomas Fork Formation in Wyoming contains fossil snails, fish scales, turtle carapaces, reptile bones, and dinosaur eggshells, which should not all be found together.


The Guimarota coal mine in Portugal revealed Archaeopteryx like teeth, Multituberculata, which are mammals similar to marsupials, and dinosaur teeth before the mine flooded.  


Fossil bird teeth, fossil dinosaur teeth, and mammals all in the same place is indicative that they lived together by evolutionists’ own logic."
