Pharyngula

This video is one of the most effective criticisms of Ham’s horrible little monument to ignorance in Kentucky — it’s a geological tour of the rocks the “museum” is built upon. It seems the creationists chose to build on some beautifully fossil-rich Ordovician layers.

It convinces me that if I were in the Cincinnati area I’d rather kick around in the hills around the area than to waste my time in a pile of bunk.

    Calling Ordovician fossils “some of the earliest lifeforms” is a major blunder.

    And just think — these wonderful fossil beds are within a day’s drive of two-thirds of America!

    So how do creationists account for geological formations on other planets within our solar system? God forbid if they ever find fossilized organisms on another planet. Perhaps a really a big flood?

    google is your friend:

    not right on target, but I think you might get some idea of the “source material” a direct answer to your question might be based on.

    in fact, your answer will likely resemble this one, found in the claptrap I just linked to:

    Scientists have long argued that studying the other planets should help us understand our own planet, but it seems this is not the case. One planetary Geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey said, “I wish it were not so, but I’m somewhat skeptical that we’re going to learn an awful lot about Earth by looking at other planetary bodies. The more that we look at the different planets, the more each one seems to be unique.”3 Many characteristics of the Earth are quite unique to Earth and recent discoveries about planetary geology, atmospheres, magnetic fields, and other subjects simply underscore this. Thus, there is now a turn toward viewing the science of planetology as a study of contrasts with Earth, not similarities to Earth.

    so the answer is, “we don’t need to: each planet is uniquely designed by Gawd!”
