Worldwide Flood Layers and Erosion

Posted in Creation/Evolution, Genesis Flood on July 30th, 2007 by dhawkinsmo

I often use Ken Ham’s phrase about massive evidence for the Flood of Noah being Millions of dead things, buried in rock layers, laid down by water, all over the earth. But people sometimes ask me, “Dave, where are these layers that you talk about”? Well … they are … er … all over the earth, like I said. Some place as much as 2 miles thick. Think of it! 2 mile thick layers of water laid sediment. Not just water laid mind you … TURBULENT water laid. It was no shallow, placid sea that laid this sediment. We’re talking massive boulder transport and huge wave evidence. Click the “more” link here to see some pictures from three different continents … Read more »

Interestingly, this is the conclusion of a recent study published in the leading scientific journal Nature. The lead author, Sanjeev Gupta, saw similarities between the English Channel and the Channeled Scablands of Washington formed by the Missoula Flood referred to above.(48) My guess is that as more and more geologists become aware of the major shift in thinking from gradualism to catastrophism caused by the Palouse Canyon debate, we will see more articles like this one by Gupta et al. The authors of this study note that a massive flood was a popular explanation for the English Channel early on, but that evidence to support the theory was lacking. Now, thanks to advances in technology, support for this theory is available and is quite convincing. The authors conclude that normal fluvial processes are inadequate to explain these features and that a megaflood is the only reasonable explanation. Read more »
