► June 18 - 7:00 PM - Tempe: Hawaiian Islands, Land of Creation and Catastrophe. You can literally watch dynamic geology – mountain building and rock formation -- in Hawaii! In a continuous eruptive cycle since 1985, the Kilauea Volcano on Hawaii's "Big Island" is the most active volcano on Earth. Some call it "America's Drive-In Volcano" because the public can easily and safely view its relatively quiet eruptions.  Hawaii also witnesses catastrophic events such as fast moving lava flows, earthquakes and tsunamis, making the Hawaiian Islands a land of creation and catastrophe. Can Hawaii's geology teach anything about the Biblical model of six literal days of Creation and the Global Flood? Come hear AzOSA Geologist Jim Carke (B.S., M.S.) address this question using facts such as:

● The Hawaiian Islands are considered to be the highest mountains on Earth from their base and are still growing.

● If the Hawaiian Islands began forming during or slightly after the Flood, all that is required is an average of 10 feet of lava per year being erupted to achieve the current height of the highest volcano, Mauna Kea (nearly 14,000 feet above sea level and 20,000 feet below sea level).

● The Hawaiian Islands have sun baked deserts in some areas and the wettest locations on Earth in other areas (Island of Kauai). Therefore, the Hawaiian Islands are rapidly eroded back down to sea level.

● A canyon similar to the Grand Canyon is located on the Island of Kauai.

● Evidence indicates that one of the largest tsunamis on Earth occurred when a large chuck of the coast of the Island of Hawaii broke off and slid onto the ocean. The resulting tsunami was over 1,000 feet high and washed completely over the Island of Kahulawi just west of Maui.
