that means it happened

People from all walks
of life have been enthusiastic about CMI’s biblical geological
field trips, including teachers, young
people, home schoolers, and geologists.
Some folk have driven for hours to take
part in a tour. Others enjoy them so much
that they keep turning up whenever one
We have received much positive
feedback: “I never look at the world the
same after that tour.” “It has given me
lots to think about.” “I have confidence
to explain what I see around me.” “It has
opened my eyes to really see what was
in front of me.”
CMI’s biblical geological excur-
sions are a great way of connecting
the Bible with the real world. When
people visit geological sites and under-
stand what they are looking at, they
understand the limitations of the real
physical evidence—what is actually
observed. When we show how evolu-
tionists use this evidence to invent their
long-age stories, events that have not
been observed, people realize just how
much our culture has been taken over by
assumptions. Then, when we show how
we can use the same evidence to develop
a scenario that fits with the Bible, it
gives folk a whole new perspective on
the world. That is the power of CMI’s
biblical geological field trips.
