Fathers Modern Geology Christians Who Believed Bible Young Earth Creationism Nicholas Steno Law Sedimentary Rock Strata Superposition Antonio Snider Pellegrini Continental Drift Plate Tectonics

Christian young earth creationists Nicholas Steno and Antonio Snider Pellegrini were the fathers of modern geology, the uniformitarian geology of gradualism which would comport with darwinism later proposed  by James Lyell then Charles Hutton to explain the geologic record en lieu of the catastrophism clearly evident in geology (http://globalflood.org).

Steno established the law of superposition in geology, that shallower layers of sedimentary material are younger than deeper ones, unless subsequent tectonic activity has folded the strata such that the older appears younger, his notion predicated on biblical Noah’s Flood when the sedimentary material was laid down, then Lyell and Hutton chose to see no flood there, claiming instead it happened slowly over billions of years.

Pellegrini first fostered the notion of continental drift, plate tectonics, that crustal movement rapidly accelerated through the flood year when the supercontinent Pangea broke apart to move to roughly today’s continental configurations, now only moving slowly an inch or two per year, this rate projected billions of years back by the uniformitarians when but Pangea is said to have broken apart ‘only’ 90 million years ago!  See history after Noah’s Flood, http://genesisveracityfoundation.com.
