Canyon Ministries — An Interview with Tom Vail

Tom Vail, Founder of Canyon Ministries has been involved in rafting and giving tours of the Grand Canyon for the past 30 years. He has some fascinating insights into what the geological evidence reveals.

One of the most talked-about issues related to the Grand Canyon is how the layers were formed and subsequently how the canyon was carved. Evolutionists accept the uniformitarian model and believe the layers were laid down slowly over many millions of years. For example, they claim that the sand which formed the Tapeats Sandstone, which covers the vast majority of the North American continent, was deposited at the bottom of a calm and placid sea. If that were true, what accounts for the fact that the formation is also found across Europe and Northern Africa? In this video, Tom reveals evidence that the Tapeats Sandstone does not fit the secular model.

Tom also shares the interesting story of how he came to have a relationship with Christ later in life. In Tom’s case it resulted not only in a new way of life; it resulted in a new way of looking at geology.
