Look outside your window. Do you see mountains? A geologist can tell you how they got there. Do you see nothing but flat ground? or ocean? We can tell you why those conditions exist right there. We can tell you what causes earthquakes or how the Earth came to look as it does...and what it used to look like when Dinosaurs were here (and before!). Geologists study the earth and how it formed. We can tell you what used to be up against North America, or where India started out. We can look at a rock and tell you an entire story... Geology is how the Earth came to be what it is right now, and what it will probably look like in the future.
