The eruption of
Mount St. Helens helps us to understand many processes that occurred
during the Genesis Flood. These processes include rapid erosion and
deposition of stratified sediments, including strata with fine
laminations; the precursor sediments for coal; rapid canyon formation; the
origin of “fossil forests;” and many others. This book contains abundant
photographs and is written for the layman.

insight on the subject of death and suffering
In the aftermath of the Mount St. Helens eruption and the subsequent
glacier slide and mudflows, there remained a geologic gold mine for earth
scientists. No natural disasters in recent history could compare with the
variety of processes which resulted from this tectonic and volcanic event.
As creation scientists have carefully studied this geological phenomenon,
they have concluded that Mount St. Helens accomplished the same sort of
geologic work that biblical creationists attribute to Noah’s flood. While
this explosion was certainly much smaller in scale and intensity, many
lessons were learned through this occurrence that help us understand the
Journey back to this catastrophic event with scientists Dr. Steve Austin
and Dr. John Morris and see what was discovered as they reconstruct the
sequence of earthquakes, eruptions, avalanches, mudflows, and other
geologic processes and unveil their fascinating research findings!
