Flood Evidence [sic] True Facts #6
RS> EVIDENCE [sic] #3
RS> [cuts] They discovered what we call TURBIDITY CURRENTS- an
underwater avalanche. These usually occur at the mouth of a river where
RS> silt and deposits build up but not always.. Suddenly due to the
RS> weight burden they break loose and rush through the water very
RS> much like a land avalanche would. The mass because it is heavier
RS> moves as a single unit quickly covering great areas of ground/
RS> ocean. It is possible to reach speeds of 65mph. These are called
RS> Turbiditers... it covered 40,000 sq. miles and 2 feet thick in 13
RS> hours. Strangely we find turbidites in the Grand Canyon.
Not at all strange considering much of North America was under the
ocean once. However, there are no references or documentation here
that proves these Turbidity deposits are actually there; we have
Ron's word on it. HE CALLS THIS "EVIDENCE?!" Good grief. Let him
actually demonstrate this claim; then and only then can we say
that there is evidence of terbidity---- WHICH DOES NOT IN ANY WAY
PROVE A GLOBAL FLOOD! It only demonstrates what scientists have
known for two hundred years: North America was once under the ocean.
RS> We know they are turbidites because turbidites all have common
RS> characteristics....certain common features. Arjen Van Der Wolf
RS> Sedimentaologist from the Netherlands reports that we find that
RS> as many as 30% of all sediments on land were deposited by
RS> turbidites. What's this have to do with anything? Geologist use
RS> to think it had taken hundreds even thousands of years to make
RS> these formations. Tens of thousands of layers that we once thought
RS> took a long period of time to deposit we are now finding could
RS> have been rapidly formed. We now know it could have happened in
RS> Days[sic]. So, many on land that we once assumed took thousand
RS> of years to form, we now know could have happened quickly. Tom
RS> Zoutwelle Sedimentologist reports turbidity covering the
RS> Netherlands uniformly thick... we have also found them in
RS> Blounay, Switerzland, Le Sepey, Switerzland, Castle Point, New
RS> Zealand. We have massive sedimentation throughout the world that
RS> were deposited quickly and underwater...just the kind of thing
RS> we'd expect to find from a world-wide flood.
Not what any scientist would expect from a global flood. Funny how
the above do not have references to peer-reviewed journals.
What the above constitutes is unsupported claims, not evidence. I
wonder why Ron is confused about this distinction. He is again telling
us to take his word on it.
What he fails to point out here is radiometric and fossil finds prove
that these layers WERE NOT deposited world-wide AT THE SAME TIME, and
no scientist would ever say so; I highly suspect the people mentioned
above would point out this FACT if they were here to defend their
out-of-context opinions from the likes of Creationists, and would
very likely be furious at their names being mentioned by Creationists.
Radiometric dating and fossil finds falsifies the claim that layers
deposited around the globe were deposited at the same time.
