    gradualism propaganda.
    silencing of opposing views.
    History channel at its finest.

    I hope all you climate change nuts are watching this, the earth has went threw natural climate change for billions of years. Floods, Ice ages, and warming periods that melted it all away for us to live here today BEFORE human carbon emissions were even a factor! These Canyons were carved out with mass amounts of flooding waters and you guys think if water returns it's "Un Natural" you guys don't know jack squat about our planet and seem to think it only revolves around you. We can also prove carbon emissions were at some of their highest levels DURING an Ice Age (Less Plant life equals more carbon). Just like the scientist in the 70s going around the artic pooring soot on our Ice caps to help them melt you think you have it all figured out but you really don't at all!

    Hmmm…. so an era of scientists found the preceding scientists were wrong about what they had learned from earlier scientists, who discovered even older scientists were wrong about what they had proven in what even much older scientists had discovered? So science can evolve if others question and refute the science of the day? Do you hear that, ignorant liberals?

    5:39 What a coincidence– I've also been around less than half the age of the Earth.

    This video is Trash 🗑
    Nonbelievers Love it because they don’t believe in God Almighty. Nor do they respect that He is the one created Heaven and Earth.
    Btw God Almighty is a Black man With Wooly hair.

    😇 Proof Of Scriptures & (Exodus 3:13-15:) I AM THAT I AM'S Genesis Flood, When Our Heavenly (Romans 8:15:) ABBA Cleansed The World: Of Large Creators, Giants And Evil People, TOO! (2 Peter 3:8:) But Beloved, Be Not Ignorant Of This One Thing, That One Day Is With The Lord As A Thousand Years, And A Thousand Years As One Day. So 360 Of Our Days, Equal 1 Year For Man; Then 360,000 Of Our Years Just Equal 1 YEAR For Our Heavenly Father, Plainly Showing HIS T.I.M.E.= Time Is My Eternity. (Isaiah 66:4:) I Also Will Choose Their Delusions, And I Will Bring Their Fears Upon Them; Because When I Called, None Did Answer; When I Spoke, They Did Not Hear; But They Did Evil Before Mine Eyes, And Chose That In Which I Was Not Delighted In. 🙏

  • Lari Wyman on April 28, 2022

    Eeek! I cringed when I saw those scientists walking and climbing around in sandals… how dangerous!

  • Bill Rayvan on April 28, 2022

    Awe excellent theory … Cute but wrong .

  • Irving Shekelstein on April 29, 2022

    Hard to imagine that the Grand Canyon has been slowly forming for over 5,000 years. God’s work is truly magnificent!

  • Tee Ahhing on April 30, 2022

    God CREATED The Heavans & The Earth 🌍. As Easy As That.

  • SavedBy GodsGrace on April 30, 2022

    The Grand Canyon was once massive, mile high tree’s that was fed by the Colorado river.

  • Hermitey Perez Triana on April 30, 2022

    This format of stretching the information so much, repeating over and over the same information, so you need to watch for 40 minutes to, sometimes, end up without the answer for the question in the tittle is soooooooo annoying. Go to the point, saves us some time.

  • Bosa Barbosa on May 1, 2022

    Most of these conclusions they come up with are no more no less then… GUESSES, plain and simple! The actual FACT with 100% accuracy, and how to find sea creatures over 1 mile above sea level??? One answer, "the GREAT FLOOD"! These findings aren't exclusive to the Grand Canyon, pretty sure you would find those sea creatures on top of the Everest also, BUT, too cold, inhabitable, making impossible for these explorations to be made there, which guarantees they will NEVER be found there, as opposed to the Grand Canyon; really HOT but, very doable! The ENTIRE EARTH WAS COVERED, for MONTHS, therefore all sea creatures were floating, swimming, moving EVERYWHERE! So there… why you find sea creatures, in the Grand Canyon!

  • Rafisol on May 1, 2022

    Yea I like 👍

  • Angela Tweedle on May 4, 2022

    This earth and all its fullness plus mankind was created by my Heavenly Father. Who else could create such a wondrous beauty. We did not just evolve. My Heavenly Father is much more mightier than that.

  • Oronde Pendergrass on May 4, 2022

    Why aren't there more canyons created from rivers? Do you really believe the Colorado River created a canyon so deep? I'm not buying it.

  • Deborah Brown on May 4, 2022

    It is really interesting content

  • Amaizing World on May 4, 2022

    This is false, recently scientist have disproven the current concept of Pangea now Austrailia is thought to of been connected to tge grand canyon area, let alone the flood that created it.

  • Denise Farmer on May 4, 2022


  • Bartholomeow on May 4, 2022

    so.. sea levels have risen at least 8 times in the past?.. sort of argues against man made climate change

  • Rick Beal on May 4, 2022

    The great flood made the grand canyon. If that little river cut the grand canyon. Where is the mountains of dirt.

  • Dodgers 2020 on May 4, 2022

    Should never forget the big role the Grand Canyon played in slavery. If you are gonna speak on history tell it how it is

  • Rocio Cendejas on May 5, 2022

    The Grand Canyon was carved by the great flood in Genesis from the Bible around 6,000 years ago

  • Rocio Cendejas on May 5, 2022

    This so called scientists willingly continued to ignore the facts inspired by truth and the wide world evidence that stares right at their face.

  • Gary Troutman on May 8, 2022

    I have been to the GrandCanyon!

  • Ukraine is Russia on May 8, 2022

    "The Grand Canyon explained drained"

  • Sheelah K on May 8, 2022

    Why didn't they explain HOW the land was lifted straight up instead of forming folded mountains? It seems far fetched to believe that could happen.

  • Boomboom Baby on May 8, 2022

    It was a ocean that dried up

    GTFOH. Lmmfao. Be nice when the te-lie-vision tells the truth.

  • Tedious Myrrh on May 9, 2022

    THIS IS A LIE, the grand canyon was made rapidly from water runnoff after the great flood. EVOLUTION IS A LIE AND PROPAGANDA. the reason they lie, to erase God, the bible and real history. THE HISTORY CHANNEL IS THE PROPAGANDA CHANNEL

  • Chad Awesome on May 9, 2022

    The flood formed it. That's how clams in the closed position are on top of the peaks.

  • God_Laughs _At_Atheists on May 11, 2022

    The Genesis worldwide flood. And the billions of fossils found worldwide, including those on top of mountains, are remnants of that destructive flood.
