Definition: Geology is the science that addresses the dynamics and physical history of the earth, the rocks of which it is composed, and the physical, chemical, and biological changes that the earth has undergone or is undergoing currently. Supposedly geologists have been very challenged to nail down the exact beginnings of Mother Earth. In 1974, it was believed that our planet was at least 3.2 million years old when the bones of a hominid were resurrected in Hadar, Ethiopia. But then in 1994, another hominid was found dating back 4.4-million years. In 1997, the same was true but this species had lived 5 to 6 million years ago and then again another in 2000, a hominid dating back at least 6 million years.
The point is we learn of ourselves through the artifacts that remain. We can catch a glimpse of what was and what we were, as well as how far we have come through the evolutionary changes we experienced as a species. Geology gives fascinating insight into the history of the Earth through plate tectonics and past climates. Today geology is commercially important for evaluating water resources, predicting and understanding natural hazards, remedying environmental problems, and providing insights into past climate change.
More and more recent discoveries are causing us to review our past and rewrite that which we’ve held sacred as our enduring history.
