Set in Stone takes the viewer on a visual odyssey of discovery. Shot in high definition on location around Britain, this DVD transports the viewer to the spectacular scenery, awe inspiring landscapes and beautiful coastlines of England. Set in Stone presents evidence for Earth's catastrophic past to enable the viewer to ask important questions.

According to modern geology, our world is over four and a half billion years old, and its geological features have been sculpted over vast eons of time. Everyone knows that Planet Earth is unimaginably ancient. It's common knowledge that geological forces have acted slowly over millions of years to form the rocks beneath our feet. But what if what everyone 'knows' is wrong?

Most significantly, Set in Stone pays a visit to Siccar Point in Scotland, made famous by the pioneering naturalist James Hutton, whose observations have sparked an earthquake in the science of geology that still reverberates to this day. Along the way, we will pose some intriguing questions:

- Were the rocks around us formed slowly and gradually - or suddenly during catastrophic events?

- Did the history of the world unfold over vast eras of time or much shorter periods?

- And what do the rocks really tell us about the geological history of our world?

"It seems that the evolutionists are convinced that they have found the last word on life, some of us however, doubt that they have the full answer, and so are still searching." - Dr. Milton Wainwright, Dept. of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, University of Sheffield

Flood Geology
Creation geology is the study of geology founded on the presupposition that the Biblical flood described in the book of Genesis was a real and historical event of global magnitude, and is therefore also known as flood geology. Creation geologists seek primarily to show that Earth's geologic features are best interpreted within the scope of this Biblical cataclysm; including sedimentary strata, fossilization, fossil fuels, submarine canyons, plate tectonics, salt domes and frozen mammoths.

Biblical Catastrophism
Catastrophism is the theory that massive catastrophes occurred in earth's past, substantially altering the Earth and its life via mountain uplift, rapid deposition, and mass extinctions. According to creation scientists, such an event did occur according to the Biblical account of the Global Flood in the time of Noah.
