Part of the Flood Geology Series
Geologist Dr. Steven Austin has spent thousands of hours studying Mount St. Helens and this is his latest documentary showing all the incredible geologic features that formed rapidly giving us modern day evidence for the world wide flood.
This documentary, filmed at Mount St. Helens, explores how catastrophic processes at the mountain explain many geologic features we see around the world today.
In 1980 Mount St. Helens erupted and quickly became known as "God's gift to Creationists." Thirty years later Dr. Austin returns to the volcanic monument to share how the catastrophic processes which reshaped the terrain support the biblical record of earth's history. He presents his research on how the events at Mount St. Helens reveal catastrophic processes in other geologic features such as the Grand Canyon and the petrified forests at Yellowstone. The formation of these features were thought to have taken millions of years, but because of the events at Mount St. Helens, they can now be explained by catastrophic processes, especially the Global Flood recorded in the Bible.
Thirty years after the eruption of Mt. St. Helens, geologist Dr. Steve Austin returns to this volcanic monument to share about the catastrophic processes which reshaped the terrain. You will see how Mt. St. Helens was, and still is, like a ‘lab’ where we observe processes that can explain other geologic features, including rapid erosion, petrified trees, coal formation, biological recovery, and more. Along the way, we learn how the ‘explosive’ evidence observed at this volcano helps us understand how Noah’s Flood could have shaped much of the earth we see today.
About the Speaker:
Dr. Steven A. Austin is a field research geologist with a Ph.D. from Penn State University in sedimentary geology. He is “Senior Research Scientist” with Institute for Creation Research in Dallas, Texas. He has performed geologic research on six of the seven continents of the world. His research adventures have taken him by helicopter into the crater of Mount St. Helens volcano, by bush plane onto glaciers in the high mountains of Alaska, by raft through the entire Grand Canyon, on horseback into the high Sierra, by elevator into the world’s deepest coal mines, by SCUBA onto the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, by rail into the backcountry of Korea, by foot onto barren plateaus of southern Argentina, and by four-wheel drive into remote desert areas of Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. He is the author of three books, three videos, one computer software package, and more than thirty technical geology papers.
Dr. Austin’s field research within Grand Canyon includes over 400 nights camped out below the Canyon’s rim. He has launched 22 raft trips within Grand Canyon. He has explored very remote areas of Grand Canyon by mule, helicopter and ATV. His book “Grand Canyon: Monument to Catastrophe” and his DVD “Grand Canyon: Monument to the Flood” summarize his investigations. He has over ten technical papers on Grand Canyon. Subjects of his technical publications on Grand Canyon include lava dams, breached dams, fossils, limestones, sandstones, basalts, diabase sills and radioisotope dating. He is widely known for his discovery of the regionally extensive mass-kill and burial bed within the Redwall Limestone about 2000 feet below the Canyon’s rim.
