The Seven Wonders Museum and Bookstore
Has the ‘Point’ of Mount St. Helens:
It’s your Creation Information Center

   While much was destroyed by the eruptions of the 1980’s, geological treasures have resulted to shock evolutionary thinking and point us to a earth that is far younger. Evolutionary bias and presupposition have produced many errors contained in today’s science text books and beyond.

   For instance, this Museum and Bookstore shows what logs deposited on Spirit Lake by the eruption have demonstrated: that the supposed 27 sequential forests at Yellowstone National Park, said to have grown & died over 50 million years, is but one forest destroyed by one catastrophic event and then transported to its present location.

Rapidly Produced Changes at Mt. St. Helens, 1980 -1984
  • Canyon erosion, including the “Little Grand Canyon” of the Toutle River, nine hours to five months.
  • Stratification formed by hurricane-velocity pyroclastic flows, three hours.
  • Badlands topography, five days.

Many scientists now believe the best explanation for geological strata is that some catastrophe formed them. Creation scientists believe that the world-destroying Biblical Flood was the foremost catastrophe.

Our Services include:
  • The Visitor/Resource Packet: Mountains of information on volcanoes, the eruption and how to best spend your time around the blast zone. Includes hikes and trails, area map and Spirit Lake Highway mile-by-mile.  $3.00
  • Slide presentations for families or small groups in the Center.  See and hear this science explained.
  • Tour guide for the day.
  • Creation science resource specialist.
  • Slide presentations at churches, schools and other gatherings.
  • Creation messages for pulpit supply.  Rev. Lloyd Anderson, B.A., Th.M.
Eruptions at Mount St. Helens compel us to look more closely at the science upon which we base our lives -- should it be the creation model or the evolution model?  The following quotes from the book, What is Creation Science, by Henry Morris and Gary Parker speak to this question.
Creation science is the study of scientific evidence for
creation according to the standards of scientific study.
 “Many have considered it (creation science) to be simply religion  in disguise....this situation is regrettable...” --Dean H. Kenyon,  Professor of Biology at  San Francisco State University
"...the concept of creation is every bit as scientific as the concept of an ongoing
naturalistic evolutionary process.... in fact, a better scientific model.”
“The creation/evolution question is, after all, not merely a trivial issue that concerns only biologists on the one hand or religious people on the other. The issue permeates in one way or another every field of academic study and every aspect of national life. It deals with two opposing basic world views -- two philosophies of origins and destinies, of life and meaning. Consequently, it is (or should be) of special concern to everyone.”

Amazing new studies on the capabilities of  Noah’s ark show how, realistically, life would have been preserved through it, just as the Bible records. Is it not this great flood that changed the face of the earth?

We have books to answer the following questions:

1.  What should we learn from natural disasters such as the eruption of Mount St. Helens?

2.  How much of evolution is actually proven fact, and why is it so often taught as the only explanation for the formation of earth and matter?

3. What caused the extinction of dinosaurs?

4.  How did the waters of the global flood affect climate, atmosphere and future generations?

5.  If  I accept the creation view of origins, will it  be a more healthy philosophy on which to base my life?

   Well-documented literature and videos on sale. Suitable for  college-level, home school, and general reading.

   Free admission, free literature.
