Lately I've been posting some photos from my research trips to Instagram and I thought why not repost them here in better quality. Every Friday I'll post a new photo of a rock landscape with some description and light interpretation. Enough talk, [...]

A new disaster movie, retelling the fate of the ancient town of Pompeii, will be released soon. The filmmakers spent six years researching the volcanic disaster that destroyed the town to make it as historically accurate as possible – but what [...]

The camel that broke the Bible’s back?

The GeoChristian [2014-02-17 06:11:47]   recommend this post  (322 visits)
Here’s another “science proves the Bible wrong” story that has been in the news lately, in which science does not prove the Bible wrong. In this case, it has to do with archeology and the domestication of the camel. The first [...]
