Updated and expanded, this classic work from the president of the Institute for Creation Research is a guide for the layman to the truth of Genesis. Morris studies geology, culture, and various creation theories to give a true picture of Earth history. Explodes popular misconceptions about the age of the earth by exposing the shaky reasoning behind radiometric dating; Morris's discussion of these fallacies alone is worth the price of the book. Helps readers understand that fossils are dated to vast ages by calculating that the sil they are found in is millions of years old -- a startling "trade secret" among evolutionists. High school - adult.
