Description

Geology lecture notes by Edward Hitchcock on the topic of a universal flood. Hitchcock outlines what he considers to be the geological evidence of a universal flood as is described in the Bible. He refutes some ideas about proofs of the flood relating to shell fossils, and says that proof can be derived from examining the surface of the earth instead. He lists grooves and furrows in the surface of the earth as evidence, as well as the mixture of sand, clay, and gravel found on all surfaces of the globe. He relates information about Kirkdale Cave, which contained many different types of animal bones, and analyzes how this accounts for a universal flood. The final page appears to be unrelated and bears the heading "Geology of Portland and vicinity."
