Not Enough Sediment in the Sea

Yesterday we learned there’s not enough salt in the sea for the earth to be billions of years old. Well, here’s another problem—there’s not enough sediment either!

You see, evolutionists believe the ocean floors are two hundred million years old and formed slowly over long periods of time. But at the present rate that sediment slides into the ocean, dirt and debris should be miles thick on the floor of the ocean. But it’s not!

There’s only about 1,200 feet of sediment on the ocean floor. Now, in a biblical worldview, this is easy to explain. Noah’s Flood added most of this sediment, as the waters rushed off the continents at the end of the flood.
