an expanse of desert looks the same way it did almost two million years ago. This desert pavement confirmed scientific suspicions that should an area remain dry and extremely flat, and suffer little to no weather or geological activity, then its entire face can stay preserved for millions of years. This incredible—and touchable—piece of antiquity is not the oldest geological wonder, but it can win the prize for being one of the most mesmerizing. A person can just stand there and stare…

Highly important and scientifically interesting pair of Woolly Mammoth tusks Supplied with a pair of custom fitted perspex stands which have been accented to re-create the natural position as you would find on a juvenile Mammoth. It is an exceedingly rare to find a pair of tusks in such good condition.  Location: Siberia, Genus: Mammuthus primigenius sp. Geological Age: Pleistocene Period - Approximately 1.6 million to 50,000 years ago

A long-standing fact widely accepted among the scientific community has been recently refuted, which now has major implications on our understanding of how Earth has evolved. Until recently, most geologists had determined the land connecting North and South America, the Isthmus of Panama, had formed 3.5 million years ago. But new data shows that this geological event, which dramatically changed the world, occurred much earlier.

The last stand - science versus superstition, 1899, by Udo J. Keppler. LOC summary: Newton, Abbott, Briggs, Savage, & Adler (with a flag that states, "Think or be Damned," a machine gun labeled "History, Archaeology, Evolution, Enlightenment, Geology," & boxes of ammunition -- "Scientific Facts, Historical Facts, Rational Religion") challenge "Medieval Dogmatism" clergy "armed with halberds and a banner that states 'Believe or be Damned.'"

The Qur'an draws attention to a very important geological function of mountains:  "We have set on the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with them."(Surah al-Anbiya: 31)  If we pay close attention to the verse, we will see that mountains' property of preventing shocks on earth is mentioned. This fact, which was unknown by anyone during the period when the Qur'an was revealed, has been exposed as a result of the discoveries of modern geology today.

#geoubcsic An 8700-year record of the interplay of environmental and human drivers in the development of the southern Gran Sabana landscape, SE Venezuela. Ballesteros, T; Montoya, E; Vegas-Vilarrubia, T; Giralt, S; Abbott, MB; Rull, V. HOLOCENE V.24(12):1757-1770. [2014]. The vegetation of the southern Gran Sabana (SE Venezuela) consists primarily of a treeless savanna with morichales (Mauritia flexuosa palm stands), despite the prevailing climate being more favorable for the development…
