Footprints in the Ash
Discover how the eruption of Mount St. Helens helps to explain Noah’s flood! • A fascinating pictorial review of the 1980 volcanic eruption that shocked the world! • Displays a visual outdoor laboratory with geological lessons • Provides observable evidence for a young earth • An encouraging teaching tool for biblical creationists • Shows how God’s creation adapted to this natural disaster through a recovered ecosystem • Teaches proper insight on the subject of death and suffering In the aftermath of the Mount St. Helens eruption and the subsequent glacier slide and mudflows, there remained a geologic gold mine for earth scientists. No natural disasters in recent history could compare with the variety of processes which resulted from this tectonic and volcanic event.
As creation scientists have carefully studied this geological phenomenon, they have concluded that Mount St. Helens accomplished the same sort of geologic work that biblical creationists attribute to Noah’s flood. While this explosion was certainly much smaller in scale and intensity, many lessons were learned through this occurrence that help us understand the unobservable past. Journey back to this catastrophic event with scientists Dr. Steve Austin and Dr. John Morris and see what was discovered as they reconstruct the sequence of earthquakes, eruptions, avalanches, mudflows, and other geologic processes and unveil their fascinating research findings!
