Origin of Civilization

No verifiable record of human civilization goes back more than 6,000 years. Civilization like everything else appears suddenly in the historical record.


The Grand Canyon

On the north side of Mount St. Helens there is a particularly deep canyon 1,000 feet wide and about 140 feet deep. This canyon wasn't formed by the stream that now trickles through it over millions of years, on March 19, 1982 it was formed in 9 hours!
