presents what it claims is evidence for vast time spans.
This is graphically illustrated in a chart on pages 36–37: man’s existence is in such a tiny segment at the end of a 5-billion-year time-line that it has to be diagrammatically magnified twice to show up.
Sedimentation experiments by the creationist Guy Berthault, sometimes working with non-creationists, have shown that fine layers can form by a self-sorting mechanism during the settling of differently sized particles.
In one of Berthault’s experiments, finely layered sandstone and diatomite rocks were broken into their constituent particles, and allowed to settle under running water at various speeds.
But because of their naturalistic bias, they prefer, of course, to reject the explanation of the Genesis (global) flood.
However, a cataclysmic globe-covering (and fossil-forming) flood would have eroded huge quantities of sediment, and deposited them elsewhere.
Many organisms would have been buried very quickly and fossilized.
The booklet shows other fossils that must have formed rapidly.Ironically, NASA scientists accept that there have been ‘catastrophic floods’ on Mars although no liquid water is present today.But they deny that a global flood happened on earth, where there is enough water to cover the whole planet to a depth of 1.7 miles (2.7 km) if it were completely uniform, and even now covers 71 percent of the earth’s surface!First, Sedimentary rocks are formed when solid materials carried by wind and water accumulate in layers and then are compressed by overlying deposits.Sedimentary rocks sometimes contain fossils formed from the parts of organisms deposited along with other solid materials.
