The “geological record” is the story that the earth’s rocks tell us about our planet’s history. Strata, sediment, and erosion are just a few of the hundreds of terms that have entered our daily vocabulary thanks to the study of geology. Today, many scientists point to the geological record as proof of evolution and millions of years, but geologists haven’t always interpreted the data in this way.

This feature is taken from a conversation with Dr. Terry Mortenson, editor of Coming to Grips with Genesis (Master Books, 2008), on the history of geology and the theological ramifications of the age of the universe.
