Your statement would be incorrect. Geologists do not adhere to a simple process of sedimentation as you seem to suggest. Or do you think that they never noticed storm deposits, debris flows or olistostromes until you came along? Now, don't tell me this is another case where you misunderstood something...

^ I'm talking about anyone taking a look at any arbitary local wall of strata. It will be assumed to have been formed slowly.

No. Some 'arbitrary local walls' would be deemed rapidly deposited if the sedimentary features (evidence) suggested so. Some are slowly deposited, others not. Just because you might automatically assume something because the bible tells you so, does not mean that we all react this way.

Cmon TB drop this one already. It's simply a false representation of geology.

Cheers
