One of the key works in the nineteenth-century battle between science and Scripture, Charles Lyell's Principles of Geology () sought to explain the geological state of the modern Earth by considering the long-term effects of observable natural phenomena/5.

This book is excellent to read at nighttime when you need to get tired so you can fall asleep. It took me about four years to read the entire book, but now I finally know a little tiny bit about Geology, and I also now have a better understanding of the history of the world.
