You're saying the "The Flood" deposition wouldn't follow Walther's Law??? Am I agreeing with Faith and disagreeing with Percy?

It would be a great help to Faith if someone could provide valid arguments for her views. Faith believes that a flood incursion onto land would deposit sedimentary layers identical to those deposited by a gradually transgressing or regressing shoreline following Walther's Law, indeed, that a flood incursion *is* a demonstration of Walther's Law.

My own understanding of Walther's Law is that it plays out over a great deal of time, and that flood deposits are distinctively different from normal shoreline-related deposits. That's not to say that floods don't occur while shoreline-related sedimentary deposits are forming, they of course do, but if big enough to leave a sedimentary record they are recognizable as flood deposits.

New topic created from old message in another topic
Message 1 is a copy of message 923 from the "Continuation of Flood Discussion" topic (in summation mode), which in turn was a copy and continuation of the " Depositional Models of Sea Transgressions/Regressions - Walther's Law" topic (also in summation mode).

PLEASE DO NOT PROMOTE THIS OUT OF THE PNT FORUM YET!

I intend to do more here before the topic is released. But it's going to take a while for me to get that done.

Note: Per internet search, the greatest 24 hour rainfall ever was 72 inches.

Edited by Adminnemooseus, : Note.


Or something like that.

For related discussion, I also recommend reading upthread and/or downthread at the message 1 original source topic (link in message 1).

Actually, Walther's Law is not a sedimentation model - It's a statement of the lateral vs vertical relationships of sediments deposited in a migrating environment (OSLT).

But I do think that some variation of the sea transgressing/regressing depositional model is valid for what would be expected to be found as a result of "THE FLOOD".

If the Young Earth flood geology actually had happened, I would expect to see a basement geology of the original created Earth, covered by some variation of a single transgressive/regressive sequence. The FLOOD deposit stratigraphy would be very simple, not that vast complexity of sediments (and other geologic process affects) that we actually see.
