It is interesting to note that most secular scientists believe that it has been carving over the last 6 million years, but some scientists disagree with that conclusion.
Some scientists believe that the Grand Canyon has carved in the last 3-5 million years. Some believe that it has carved over the last 17 million years, and some scientists believe that it has been carving over the last 70 million years! These are vastly different conclusions!
Notice the word above: believe! All of these scientists base their beliefs/opinions on evidence, but the same evidence has to be interpreted…so the question then becomes which belief or worldview is true.
There is also another worldview that the Grand Canyon has been carved only a few thousand years ago! And that belief appears to also be based on scientific evidence!
What will you believe?
