9780393346244: The Rocks Don't Lie: A Geologist Investigates Noah's Flood
Review:

"An excellent example of how a serious, even sympathetic, engagement with religion need not threaten reason or compromise scientific integrity." "The Rocks Don't Lie traces the history of the field of geology through the thinking that progressively debunked the great-flood myth and left behind, temporarily, what would be resurrected 150 years later as Creationism... The Rocks Don't Lie intertwines geologic history and the author's own field trips in an engrossing way... Montgomery also shows flashes of considerable wit... That's just a taste of what's in store for readers of this delightful volume. I came away far more enriched than I had expected to be." "[Montgomery's] arguments are spirited and compelling, but his most novel conceit is to frame this intellectual history of geology by giving special attention to Noah's Flood." "We can only hope that [Montgomery's] book will be received with the same open-mindedness with which it was written." -- Martin Rudwick "Thought-provoking." "Fascinating, exquisitely researched and comprehensive." "Examining a wide variety of flood and creation stories across centuries, Montgomery provides an enthusiastic and valuable recounting of the history of geology and how the advances in science have consistently faced opposition from the guardians of so-called religious authority, based on a literal reading of the Bible." "Montgomery... offers a thorough critique of creationist worldviews... while treating his opponents with respect, reflecting on both ancient and modern debates and demonstrating that Christians have been arguing among themselves about these subjects for millennia. ...The combination of historical study and humility on behalf of geology makes for an extremely persuasive work. Highly recommended." -- John M. Kistler

Review:

"[Montgomery's] arguments are spirited and compelling, but his most novel conceit is to frame this intellectual history of geology by giving special attention to Noah's Flood." The Wall Street Journal

Descripción WW Norton Co, United States, 2013. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. 208 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In Tibet, geologist David R. Montgomery heard a local story about a great flood that bore a striking similarity to Noah s Flood. Intrigued, Montgomery began investigating the world s flood stories and-drawing from historic works by theologians, natural philosophers, and scientists-discovered the counterintuitive role Noah s Flood played in the development of both geology and creationism. Steno, the grandfather of geology, even invoked the Flood in laying geology s founding principles based on his observations of northern Italian landscapes. Centuries later, the founders of modern creationism based their irrational view of a global flood on a perceptive critique of geology. With an explorer s eye and a refreshing approach to both faith and science, Montgomery takes readers on a journey across landscapes and cultures. In the process we discover the illusive nature of truth, whether viewed through the lens of science or religion, and how it changed through history and continues changing, even today.
