Geological forum on Green River Formation, USA

Journal 20(1)

In Journal of Creation 20(1), two creationist geologists, Michael J. Oard and John H. Whitmore, debate how the Green River Formation fits within a biblical framework. (The introduction can be seen here.)

Perhaps you have never imagined that the Green River Formation has anything to do with the Bible.

If so, this forum is for you.

GRF fossil fish, Knightia, famous in fossil shops worldwide.

That’s why the recently published geological forum about the Green River Formation in west-central USA is significant.

Oard argues that the Green River Formation was deposited during Noah’s Flood. Whitmore says it was deposited after the Flood. Both geologists have explored the rocks in the field and they carefully set out reasons for their position.

You be the judge.

The Forum on the Green river Formation is available in issue 20(1) of the Journal of Creation.
