Abstract: This paper provides a geological history model for a whole continent that aims to be consistent with both mapped geology and the Biblical record. A high-level overview of North America's Precambrian province geology is described and then history interpreted within a Young Earth biblical model. Correlation of Precambrian geological history with God's sequence of acts chronicled in the Bible was based on interpreting key subjects such as the relative order of radiometric "ages", the role of water and regional heating Events. Interpretation of radiometric date clusters, and thus thermal-tectonic Events was used to infer correlation with the Biblical record. It is proposed that God instigated heating Events and with the heat of each Event, radiometric "ages" were systematically reset to lower values. These "ages" provide information on the history of crystallization and cooling from high temperatures. On the basis of date clusters, the principal thermal-tectonic Events in North America are successively: 1. Kenoran (late Archean)- associated with simultaneous cooling and convective heat dissipation of earlier hotter crust within individual Archean provinces, and the beginning of stable cratons. 2. Hudsonian (late Paleoproterozoic) - associated with internal deformation and remetamorphism of Archean provinces, as well as metasomatism. 3. Grenvillian (late Mesoproterozoic) - associated with huge thickening of continental crust and high mountain building. 4. Pan-African (late Neoproterozoic) - associated with massive rifting on the Cordilleran and Appalachian margins, as well as immense continental erosion and enormous water flows. Biblical descriptions of Day One (initial global ocean and hovering over waters), Day Two (waters above and below), Day Three (dry land appears) and the early Noahic Flood (fountains bursting forth and rain) may respectively be essentially correlated with North America's Archean, Paleoproterozoic, Mesoproterozoic and Neoproterozoic geology (including Kenoran, Hudsonian, Grenvillian and Pan-African thermal-tectonic Events) respectively. Some specific locations of pre-Flood geography have been inferred in relation to today's Precambrian areas.
