Overview: Ever wondered if the worldwide flood was fact or fable? This creation resource is filled with ACTUAL PHOTOS of fossilized evidence. See for yourself!
Are you looking for ways to incorporate thought-provoking creation resources in your homeschool? As a Christian, I appreciate having access to resources which help point my sons to Christ and to the validity of the Bible. Yes, it does require faith for us to believe everything that’s written in God’s word. But there’s also plenty of evidence that points to the truth of scripture.
There is evidence in the complexity of nature. There is evidence in the human mind and the way it functions. There is historical evidence in the fact that many extra-Biblical sources line up with the history outlined in the Bible. And there’s archaeological and geological evidence as well.
Do your kids know that there is evidence for the Bible all around us? It doesn’t require blind faith for us to believe that God’s word is true. There are specific things we can point to that help us to see the validity of our faith. And it’s wonderful when we can incorporate materials into our homeschool sciences classes which do just that.
I’ve recently had the opportunity to look through a book called “Do You See What I See? High Altitude Evidence of the Worldwide Flood“ by Chuck Renstrom. I received this book for free and am being compensated for my time but I’m sharing my real opinion with you in this post.
What’s So Special About this Book?
“Do You See What I See“ is filled with geological evidence of the great flood. This book contains full-color photos that show incredibly detailed fossils of marine life and animals which were found at high altitudes. These pictures were taken in Colorado, the highest state in the U.S., which has an average elevation of 6,500 feet above sea level. Some of these fossils have been found as high as 14,000 feet above sea level!
Secular scientists speculate that there used to be a sea in that area but it makes much more logical sense to say that the worldwide flood documented in the Bible was a true, historical event.
Chuck has a background in broadcasting and photography and he spent over four years taking 10,000 pictures to come up with the 125 that he included in this book. He used a process called high dynamic range for this project. This process helps to reveal even more detail than what is always apparent to the human eye. You can listen to him talk more about this process in the video (which is actually a podcast) below.
As you can see from the pictures below, the photographs in this book are interesting to puzzle over.
I appreciated how in some of the photos, Chuck shows the original image and then uses contrasting colors to highlight the fossils in the photos that follow. Some of the animals are easier to spot than others.
If you have a child who enjoys Where’s Waldo books, he will enjoy looking for some of the more camouflaged fossils in this book as well.
Who Will Most Appreciate this Book?
- Parents who want to show their children geological evidence that the great flood was a historical event
- Kids who love rocks, fossils, dinosaurs, and other creatures
- People who enjoy fine photography or who love geology
It’s important for us to use thought-provoking resources such as “Do You See What I See“ when teaching our children so that they will both know and understand that there actually is quite a bit of scientific evidence that God created the earth, that there was a worldwide flood, and that the Bible is historically accurate. We don’t want to leave them defenseless when their Christian beliefs are questioned at various times in their lives, as it most certainly will be.
