A Sort Introduction to Geology

The science that deals with the study of the Earth is called geology.  Studding minerals and rocks are the most basic part of geology.  Minerals are the component parts of rocks. They have a definite inorganic chemical composition and form natural crystalline solids. There are three main types of rocks: Igneous, Metamorphic, and Sedimentary.
Stratigraphy is an important part of part of geology. There are three main principles of stratigraphy the principle of superposition, the Principle of continuity and the Principle of original horizontally. These three main principles dominate stratigraphy despite this to observational and experimental evidence exist that all of these principles of stratigraphy are wrong. It turns out that in flowing water sediment is laid down horizontally not vertically as the Principles of Stratigraphy assume.
