What do coal seams tell us about Earth’s history?

Do they show signs of having formed very slowly—over millions of years—in huge swamps? (This is the most common naturalistic explanation of how coal formed.)

Or does the evidence point to vast quantities of vegetation being rapidly, catastrophically buried in a flood of, well, biblical proportions—only a few thousand years ago? (This is what biblical creationists claim.)

The real-world evidence is consistent with one of these stories—but directly contradicts the other! But which one?

Join geologist, Dr Tas Walker, for a fascinating exploration of coal—and the true history of Earth.
