Evidence of the Flood (Part 4)

A fourth geologic evidence for the Flood is that rock layers were laid down in quick succession with rapid or no erosion between the layers. In contrast, the dominant view today is that slow and gradual processes required hundreds of millions of years to deposit all the rock layers. If that were true, you’d expect to find examples of weathering and erosion after successive layers were deposited, since millions of years are passing by. However, that is not the case; the geologic record supports the Flood account. Again, the Grand Canyon is an excellent example of this—thick, uniform, horizontal deposits of various sediments resting one upon another from the bottom of the canyon to the top. Furthermore, folded rock layers in the Grand Canyon and elsewhere show that these layers must have been laid down in quick succession and then folded while still soft and pliable, like a stack of thin pancakes over the edge of a plate. The Flood’s violent upheaval can account for this as well, whereas geologists subscribing to the slow and gradual processes model cannot, since the rock would have been brittle by then if it were millions of years old.
