4004 BC and All That: A brief history of Geology-and-Genesis
a talk by Martin Rudwick
at The Church Barn
Time  2pm
The famous spoof history 1066 And All That reduced the history of England to a jokey story of Good Things and Bad Things (and Kings). The assertion by modern creationists that the world is only a few thousand years old is a similar parody of a far more interesting reality. The scientific view that the Earth and its life have had an immensely lengthy history was pieced together over several centuries, dissolving assumptions that were based far more on commonsense than any supposed religious prejudice. This talk will sketch briefly how scholarly research that in the 17th century calculated dates such as 4004 BC for Creation itself was gradually expanded, on the basis of ever more convincing scientific evidence, into a reliable reconstruction of an unexpectedly long and complex history of the Earth and its life.
Admission – £3
