Real Science Radio
About This Show
Welcome to Real Science Radio with co-hosts Bob Enyart and Fred Williams who discuss the latest in science to debunk evolution and to show the evidence for the creator God including from biology, geology, astronomy, and physics. (For example, mutations will give you bad legs long before you'd get good wings.) Not only do we get to debate Darwinists and atheists like Lawrence Krauss, AronRa, and Eugenie Scott, and easily take potshots from popular evolutionists like PZ Myers, Phil Plait, and Jerry Coyne, but we also occasionally interview the outstanding scientists who dare to challenge today's accepted creed that nothing created everything.Read more »

List of Problems with 'The Flood Carved the Canyon'
6 days ago
Why parallel strata?June is Grand Canyon Month at RSR! Real Science Radio host Bob Enyart continues his Bryan Nickel interview on the origin of the Grand Canyon. (See parts 1 & 2.) Just as much evidence disproves the claim that the river carved the canyon, likewise, the following list of evidence disproves the claim that the floodwaters carved canyon. (The list continues just below Bryan's video.)RSR's List of Problems with 'The Flood Carved the Canyon'- There is only one Grand Canyon: Floodwaters were running off the continents all over the world. Yet they didn't carve seven, or dozens, or hundreds of similar sites. Rather, the Grand Canyon is only one of the seven wonders of the world. Because floodwaters ran off the continents worldwide, if they had sufficient energy to carve such canyons into the continents, then in North America alone such wonders could exist in the northeast, the Midwest, the south, in Canada, and Mexico. And quite of few similar flood runoff canyons could pockmark the Earth, in South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. But there is only one Grand Canyon!- The walls of the canyon did not slump in on themselves: Enough time had to pass after the global flood for the sediments in the strata to partially cement into rock so that the walls of the canyon stood firm and didn't just slump in on themselves. The enormous number of steep and even sheer cliffs throughout the 277-mile long and 5,000-foot deep canyon testify to the requirement that the flood-deposited wet sediments (sand and mud) had to sufficiently cement into rock to hold back the billions of tons of sediments immediately behind them.- The Kaibab Limestone had to fully harden to resist the great denudation: Enough time had to pass for the Kaibab limestone layer to solidify so that the waters of the massive sheet erosion that produced the great denudation would be stopped at it's depth. For 10,000 square miles, an average of one thousand feet of sedimentary layers above the Kaibab (and hence, above the rim of the canyon itself) were catastrophically eroded away, before the canyon could even begin to be excavated. But the massive waters of that sheet erosion were rebuffed by the hardened Kaibab, which layer prevented that flow from eroding further downward into the sedimentary layers (except for where those waters broke through and carved the canyon).- (THIS PAGE IS UNFINISHED. We hope to complete this written summary before we conclude this series on June 29th.)- Before the canyon was carved the Colorado Plateau had to be uplifted by the magma pumped below it from the gradual settling back into the mantle of the Rocky Mountains. (Two great lakes were uplifted a mile above sea level on that plateau creating the potential energy needed to excavate the canyon).- The many arches in the region needed time for their uneven cementing of sediments to occur before the softer sediments around them were swept away.- The warm, silica-rich post-flood waters had to sufficiently cool to chemically create what is today Petrified National Forest by the silica precipitating out of solution and petrifying thousands of trees.- Like the Babylonian, Navajo, Chinese, etc., cultural recollections of the global flood, so too the Navajo people have an account of the forming of the canyon, which then dramatically lowered the groundwater tables so that the region that supported large populations of Anasazi and others now became a forbidding dry desert.- The biogeographical distribution of a species of squirrels on the north and south rims of the canyon strongly suggest that those animals had migrated to the region before they were then suddenly separated by the nearly 300-mile long canyon.* The Hydroplate Theory Special: You may want to purchase this set of resources if...
