- Creation Geology – The Key to Unraveling Earth History
2. Egyptian Chronology and the Bible
3. The Geology of Israel
Patrick Nurre was in the second grade when he made his first big find – a large dinosaur bone in the alley behind his house! That was the beginning of a life-long love with geology. Raised in beautiful Montana, he spent many days rockhounding near the Big Horn River. This early interest led him to a lifelong study of the world of geology. Patrick was trained in secular geology, but after becoming a Christian, he began to seriously reevaluate his previous evolutionary beliefs, and became, instead, a young-earth creationist.
Patrick has done field study in the Pacific Northwest, the Midwest and Plains states, the Southwestern U.S., and Israel. He conducts geology classes and seminars in the Seattle area, and speaks at numerous home school and church conventions on geology and our young earth. He also leads a variety of geology field trips every year, including Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Rainier. The high point each year is a field trip to Yellowstone Park , where he helps families discover the Biblical geology of the Park. Patrick is the vision behind Northwest Treasures, a 501(c)3 corporation, devoted to excellent geology kits, curricula and education for all ages. To help in this endeavor, Patrick has written four high school textbooks on geology, and a rock identification field guide. In the fall of 2012, he opened the Geology Learning Center, a museum/educational center in the Seattle area. Patrick is an ordained pastor, and is certified as a Biblical Creation Ministry Professional. Patrick and his wife, Vicki, have three wonderful children and three grandchildren, and live in Bothell, Washington.
