πŸ“œ History of Collect Rocks Day

It’s impossible to offer a concise description of how the Earth began, so we’ll move ahead a few million years and study geology. After all, this is more appropriate for the occasion. Humanity has long been fascinated by the formation of rocks. Ancient civilizations would discover explanations based on belief rather than scientific rigor.

Many regard James Hutton as the first geologist. He was a doctor and farmer before retiring to study the creation of rocks. He questioned some widely accepted scientific ideas, such as the idea that all rocks are made under the sea.

By the twentieth century, geological research had contributed to advancing views regarding the actual age of the Earth and how continents formed. Humans now study the creation of rocks not just on Earth but also on other celestial bodies such as the Moon, thanks to significant advances in this field. Geology has produced a corpus of knowledge that helps us comprehend our planet and the implications of human activities on it.
