How old is the Grand Canyon?

Postby RobbyArt » Fri Jan 12, 2007 1:00 am

I found this article on a website. As I understand it, the author, Bob Bark is a well-known skeptic who, for his life's work, seeks to disprove various supernatural events.

"AGE: DOES THE PARK SERVICE KNOW HOW OLD THE GRAND CANYON IS?
Somewhere between six thousand and six million years is as close as they can come. The six million year figure comes from adding up the ages of the geologic strata exposed on the canyon walls. You get six thousand years by adding up the "begats" in the Old Testament until you get back to Noah. So which is it? Three years ago, bookstores in Grand Canyon National Park began selling "Grand Canyon: A Different View," approved by the Park Service. The book explains that runoff from Noah's flood carved the canyon (WN 2 Jan 04) . A promised review of whether the book should be sold in the Park stalled "over issues of church and state." Whoa! Geology is not church or state, it's science. Mary Bomar, Director of the National Park Service since October, should be called on to keep this silly religious tract out of National Park bookstores."
