Seventy miles north of the Grand Canyon is the spectacularly beautiful Wave at Paria Canyon . This unique landform looks like a wave of the sea, frozen in stone. Located in a wild and remote region of the Western United States, this strange formation swirls with controversy.
Evidence indicates that more geologic layers may have been formed during Day Three of Creation Week than during the Flood. In one day, our infinitely wise, all-powerful Creator laid down some dirt layers 30 miles thick that are now deep in the geologic record and foundational to the landmasses we live on.
When the Flood waters swept over the continents and rapidly deposited sediment layers across vast areas, these sediments had to have been transported long distances. In other words, the sediments in the strata had to come from distant sources. And that’s exactly the evidence we find.
This is another example of the uniformitarian view—a little water, a long time—giving way to the possibility that geological landscapes were formed by massive amounts of turbulent water over a short period of time and, once again, pointing out that there should be room to question the existing model.
You can’t walk into Paria Canyon without being struck dumb. The bizarre landforms look just like waves of sand frozen in time.
A longstanding understanding of how the “sedimentary geological record” was formed is apparently in error, according to research by geologists at Indiana University–Bloomington and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
On March 15, the Science Daily website reported that there may be half a million years of precise climate information stored in the sediments of Lake Van in eastern Turkey.
Recent studies have identified the provenance of the Navajo Sandstone by age-dating zircons contained within the formation. However, an alternative interpretation is possible.
Readers of Nature could have read all about it more than a decade ago in the Creation Ex Nihilo Technical Journal.
The conclusions drawn from the sedimentation experiments presented on the video Drama in the Rocks are reiterated and defended.
The experiments investigated the stratification of heterogeneous sand mixtures either in still water or in a unidirectional water flow presumably at room temperature.
Superposed strata in sedimentary rocks are believed to have been formed by successive layers of sediments deposited periodically with interruptions of sedimentation.
By working from what is known to occur today, even if rare and catastrophic by today’s standards, we can realistically calculate production of thick chalk beds within the conditions of the Flood.
Experiments on lamination of sediments, resulting from a periodic graded-bedding subsequent to deposition—a contribution to the explanation of lamination of various sediments and sedimentary rocks.
Answers in Genesis is an apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. We focus on providing answers to questions about the Bible—particularly the book of Genesis—regarding key issues such as creation, evolution, science, and the age of the earth.
