Episode 35 — Surtsey still surprises
Great minds of the past had no difficulty with the concept of a young earth shaped and reshaped by catastrophic forces, especially the upheavals associated with Noah’s Flood.

Richard and Calvin discuss Surtsey, a young island that looks incredibly ‘old’ and how it relates to the creation/evolution controversy.
