Geology is the multi-disciplinary science that studies the earth and its history. We live on a dynamic planet that is constantly changing.

Figure 1. The geologic time scale subdivided into eons, eras, periods and epochs. Geologic dates are in millions of years (Ma) and indicate the beginning of each time division. The table is not drawn to scale.

Relatively little is known about the events that occurred during the early part of the Earth’s history and thus the first four billion. There are two viewpoints on the conditions of the ancient Earth, scientific theory and Scriptural revelation.

Hutton's discovery was a very important event in geology. Hutton determined that the rocks were deposited over time. Some were eroded away. Hutton knew that deposition and erosion are very slow. He realized that for both to occur would take an extremely long time. This made him realize that Earth must be much older than people thought.
