    3.The earth sciences are called___(10 Letters)___sciences in that the element of time is important.

    4.An inquiry into the causes of an event._____(13 letters)

    6.Observations or facts which support a hypothesis or theory___(8 Letters)starting with an "E"

    If you read no. 4) it says time is an important element in earth science. So then look at no. 3) which asks for a four letter word beginning with t that is the most important factor for earth sciences. Umm, could it be "time"?

    1) change

    How many letters in 2) ?

    4) could possibly be historical

    UNIFYING has 8 letters and fits the clue, but lacks the E as the penultimate letter, could that E be wrong?

    3.The earth sciences are called___(10 Letters) sciences in that the element of time is important. with "H" as the first letter and "T" as the 4th Letter

    sorry for the mix up, this puzzle has me at my wits ends.

    Why do you keep changing the numbering of the questions?

    2. is probably "urtheory"

    3. is "historical" (as previously stated)
