Viewed up close with a careful eye, the Grand Canyon stands as breathtaking evidence of a massive water event consistent with Noah’s Flood. The standard “millions of years” explanation for the canyon does not account for the open and obvious contradictions that point to rapid erosion and deposit of life forms and minerals. Through “The Message of The Grand Canyon”, Tom Vail’s vivid photographs and lifetime of experience showcase the Grand Canyon in ways the secular media never does.
The Message of The Grand Canyon: Does it Support God’s Word?
As a natural wonder of the world, the Grand Canyon is unequaled. Much of the wonder centers on the question: What processes created it?
Tom Vail, Grand Canyon researcher and tour guide of over 30 years, created this video to address the two competing theories about the Grand Canyon’s origin: (1) the million years of gradual erosion theory; and (2) the short time and rapid post-Flood erosion theory. Simply stated: was the canyon formed with a little water and a lot of time … or a lot of water and a little time?
The standard “millions of years” explanation commands the textbook description of the Grand Canyon. By taking an intriguing closer look, Tom Vail found the ignored and overlooked contradictions that prove fatal to that explanation. As the “science community” never mentions the defects in the textbook description, this video provides the untold rest of the story.
At a layman’s level the video presents strong evidence for the rapid post-Flood theory, including: (a) evidence of the rapid burial of fossils, including some standing upright; (b) the layering of sandstone and shale; (c) smooth gentle “folds” in extremely brittle materials; and (d) the lack of evidence of millions of years of erosion of the canyon’s structures. No longer just the stuff of rumors, the Grand Canyon facts reveal a fairly recent event created the vast formation. Now, with a context of both observed facts and Biblical understanding, you can see the evidence with your own eyes.
About the Speaker
In 1980, Tom Vail took a vacation that would be to be a turning point in his life – a rafting trip through the Grand Canyon. For the next 15 years, he taught the evolutionary model of how the Canyon was formed over millions of years. But, in 1994, Tom received Christ as His Lord ans Savior and now looks at the Grand Canyon from a different view. Tom and his wife, Paula, started Canyon Ministries, a group that offers Christ-centered rafting trips through the Grand Canyon. Tom presents “The Message of the Grand Canyon” to churches and groups across the country. Presented at a layman’s level, the program is designed to strengthen people’s faith in the Word of God and provide them with some of the scientific evidence that supports a young earth.
