Evidence Of Noah's Flood

W.W. Norton

Even people who do not know much of the Bible know the story of Noah's flood... the gigantic flood that supposedly wiped out all land creatures except the ones Noah took aboard his ark.

The search for evidence of that flood led to the beginning of the science of geology, and ultimated contributed to an ongoing tension between science and religion.

So says David Montgomery, geologist at the University of Washington. 

He's written a book on the flood called The Rocks Don't Lie, and he brings a lecture by that name to Southwestern Oregon Community College this week (May 16th). 

He details the evidence that contradicts the Noah story and explores a world people of science and people of faith can all find fascinating.
