Worldwide Flood Layers and Erosion
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 about an excellent scientific theory for how all this sediment got buried at Dr. Walter Brown’s website at www.creationscience.com. Dr. Brown is the author of the Hydroplate Theory which is similar in many respects to the original version of the Plate Tectonics Theory first proposed by Antonio-Snider Peligrini.
HOW DID THESE CANYONS GET ERODED IN THESE SEDIMENTARY LAYERS?
We creationists think they got eroded in the Receding Phase of the Great Flood of Noah as the water was running off into the newly enlarged ocean basins, OR sometime during the single Ice Age which followed the Flood as a result of a large ice and/or debris dams which broke catastrophically. The erosion probably took place before the sediments had hardened. See http://www.answersingenesis.org/docs2003/1209missoula.asp for an example of this. See also my blog article about the Megaflood that Formed the English Channel.
HAVE A RECORDED DISCUSSION WITH DR. BROWN
Dr. Brown has agreed to weekly recorded discussions of his Hydroplate Theory. We have one taker so far — Mike PSS, a chemical engineer from Florida who posts at IIDB, and his only condition is that you read the complete theory (Mike is reading right now). I am hoping that I can convince others to do a call as well. I would also like to do a call with Dr. Joe Meert, a professional geologist and forum member at IIDB who at one time was pursuing a debate with Dr. Brown.
