Within 14 years after writing Origin of the Species, *Darwin confessed to a friend:
"In fact the belief in Natural Selection must at present be grounded
entirely on general considerations [faith and theorizing] . . When
we descend to details, we can prove that no one species has changed
. . nor can we prove that the supposed changes are beneficial, which
is the groundwork for the theory. Nor can we explain why some
species have changed and others have not."—*Charles

New Scientific Evidence for the Flood
The waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered.
If there was a great world wide Flood, as described in Genesis, such a catastrophe certainly should have left obvious evidence of itself all over the world. Scientists who believe in creation say that we are surrounded by these evidences. Many of them also believe that some of the features associated with glaciers can be better explained by a catastrophic flood. While evolutionary scientists scoff at the biblical account of the Flood, they continue to run across evidences of what they take to be huge floods. Now further evidence has been reported of a continental flood.
The September 1989, issue of Geology, a scientific professional journal, carried an article about drumlins in northern Saskatchewan. Drumlins are hills that are traditionally associated with glacial activity. When viewed from the air, they resemble eggs lying on their sides, all pointing in the same direction.
Over the last few years some scientists have proposed that drumlins were formed by large quantities of water running in the same direction. The article in Geology offers yet more evidence for large quantities of water moving over the continental land surfaces. One of the scientists remarked that, "There's nothing in recorded history that matches the size of these floods."
If we consider Genesis to be recorded history, rather than ancient and ignorant myth, there certainly is an historical record of a huge Flood!
Prayer: Dear Lord, in our age of unbelief, so many don't even feel they need to apologize for rejecting Your Word as ancient myths. Help me, along with all of Your people, to be bright, shining lights for Your truth in this dark world. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

Dr Marc Surtees takes a look at Noah's flood. The Earth's geology presents some interesting dilemmas for creationists and uniformitarians. Marc makes the case that a single flood cannot be responsible for the all the world's geology as many creationists maintain. Equally gradualism cannot account for the fossilisation of large animals and trees. Mark propses a flood followed by smaller catastophies.
