Lately I've been posting some photos from my research trips to Instagram and I thought why not repost them here in better quality. Every Friday I'll post a new photo of a rock landscape with some description and light interpretation. Enough talk, [...]

The camel that broke the Bible’s back?

The GeoChristian [2014-02-17 06:11:47]   recommend this post  (317 visits)
Here’s another “science proves the Bible wrong” story that has been in the news lately, in which science does not prove the Bible wrong. In this case, it has to do with archeology and the domestication of the camel. The first [...]

Are geologists different?

We’re a little unclear as to the origin of this clipping (can anyone help?) Whilst of course not condoning the somewhat outdated gender stereotyping, and without wishing to malign engineers (our very own President is one, after all), we [...]

I've blogged about Pleurodictyum fossils from the Mahantango Formation before, in this post, but this specimen that I recently found is kind of neat. It's a pair of Pleuordictyum styloporum colonies where there is some detail preserved of the [...]

Tyrannosaurus Advantages 1. A bite force which would crush any part of the body it happens to bite onto. It’s bite force was much stronger than as Spinosaurus’ bite force. 2. It was the most muscular meat eating dinosaur. It had more [...]

Traces of glacial ice and water

Metageologist [2014-02-16 13:04:29]   recommend this post  (275 visits)
