Does the geological column prove that the earth is billions of years old? Is the geological column even a reality? These are questions that are too often assumed as the rock layers are presented as if they self-evidently prove the vast ages that evolutionism requires.
Geologist John Reed unravels the geological column in a style that is accessible to laypeople and specialists alike, revealing the philosophical assumptions that are critical to questions about the time scale. This long-overdue, thorough critique of the secular view of prehistory is up-to-date with the latest changes in thinking, and the most recent attempts to overcome its philosophical shortcomings.
