Mount St. Helens

by Creation Museum on May 18, 2010

May 18 marks the thirtieth anniversary of one of the most violent natural disasters of our time, the colossal 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens. This catastrophic geologic event not only shocked the world because of its explosive power and made headline news, but challenged the foundations of evolutionary theory.

Because of this anniversary Dr. Terry Mortenson spoke on the age of the earth at the Creation Museum today.  His presentation was entitled "Millions of Years: Where Did the Idea Come From?" and was followed by the video "Mount St. Helens: Explosive Evidence for Catastrophe" at 3:00.
