Geology Papers & Research
Papers showing correlations between geologic findings and the scriptures, explanations of why geologic dates are skewed, and evidence for events such as the Fall of Adam and Noah's Flood in the geologic rock record.

Correlating Geology with the Scriptures
Overview Pamphlet
Brief general overview of geological/scriptural correlations. Gives a short synopsis of which events in the geologic record correlate with various scriptural catastrophes. Also gives a table showing dating correlations to true (scriptural) dates.
Scriptures pertaining to the Flood, the Days of Peleg, and the Fall of Adam/Organic Evolution
Research Paper
The Standard Works contain hundreds of scriptures that directly pertain to geology. This page shows many of these which refute many anti-Christian, scientific theories of our day. Many are given to support the oft-dismissed events such as the literal Fall of Adam, Noah's Flood, the Days of Peleg, and other globally catastrophic events. It also shows how the destructions associated with the Second Coming, as part of the "great restitution of all things," give further evidence that disasters occurred in the past.

Geologic Time Curve Correlation
Chart
This chart plots radiometrically derived geologic dates with the actual scriptural dates for events such as the Fall and Flood. It also does this for archeological carbon dated events. The curve shown represents the amount of deviation of these dating methods with time. It shows that radiometric dates are not completely useless and unreliable. They are relatively reliable but skewed to give excessively old dates because of false assumptions in calculating initial isotope ratios and decay constants.
Geologic Correlation Chart
Chart
Chart with summary overview of how scriptural events like the Fall, Flood, Peleg, and Time of Christ correlate with the established scientific events of the Cambrian Explosion, Great Permian Extinction, Separation of Pangea, and Late Pliocene Orogeny.

Why Darwinism Matters
Paper
This introduction reminds us that both Jesus and Moroni told us that we can determine the truth of any doctrine by looking at its fruits. This paper shows some of the "fruits" of Darwinism. It details Darwin's personal apostasy from Christianity with quotes from his journals and autobiography. It then explains "why Darwinism matters" by showing some of the political and social implications the theory has had on world events. It shows how Carl Marx, Adolph Hitler, and Joseph Stalin all used Evolution as proof for their belief in atheism and how the theory of natural selection influenced their actions.
