The Missoula Flood provides modern day evidence for a global catastrophe!
In the 1920’s J. Harland Bretz, a secular geologist proposed to his colleagues evidence for a massive Flood across eastern Washington. He was rejected by the scientific community because what was proposing was too close to a catastrophic event with many characteristics closely described in the Bible. What he found were giant gravel bars, huge dry water falls, deep canyons cut through solid basalt, water lines on mountainsides thousands of feet up, and a massive drainage system stretching from Montana to the Pacific Ocean. It wasn’t until forty years later when Bretz was proven right with evidence showing the Missoula Flood was the result of an ice dam breaking open at the end of the Ice Age in northern Idaho, emptying in just a few days across Washington and Oregon.
Directed and produced by Emmy-nominated director, Kyle Justice, this film will change your perspective of the landscape in the northwestern U.S.; as Creation Science author and researcher Michael Oard takes you on a journey from Missoula, Montana to the Pacific, sharing how the this massive flood shaped the landscape, and how these features can be applied to other geologic features found throughout the world when the biblical global flood was receding 4,300 years ago. Michael Oard will show how quickly the Ice Age formed with the meteorological conditions right after the Flood, how it quickly melted and produced these massive local floods across the world, evidence for only one Missoula Flood, and how the bible can be trusted as earth’s true history book.
About the Host:
Michael J. Oard is a scientist with a specialization in Atmospheric Science, who believes in a literal creation. He is a prolific author who has published numerous books and papers in widely recognized creationist and secular journals. He worked for close to 30 years as a meteorologist/weather forecaster with the (US) National Weather Service, and now dedicates much of his time to creation science research. Mike’s research interests have focused primarily on topics such as geological evidence for Noah’s flood, the Ice Age, and the mass extinction of the Woolly Mammoths. He speaks regularly at creation conferences and other venues and has served on the board of directors of the Creation Research Society since 2001. Mike received his Masters of Science degree in Atmospheric Science from the University of Washington in 1973. He then worked as a meteorologist for the U.S. National Weather Service until 2001, and as the lead forecaster in Montana from 1981 to 2001.

This is an example of secular science changing its view of how the Columbia River basin was shaped. Traditionally thought to have been formed by slow processes of erosion over millions of years, geologists have accepted catastrophic answers shaping the region with a whole lot of water and a little bit of time. This fact can be a good argument for describing the impact of a global flood as described in Genesis.
