Re: Iridium boundary layer
Facts fit theory, theory fits facts. Flood and strata and fossils are a match however you say it.
Why not?
Once again, you make an assertion without any explanation.
Layered discrete sediments certainly do NOT fit the millions of years scenario except by the most ridiculously ad hoc attempts at scenario-creation.
You just said that. Repeating it does not validate the idea.
Walther's Law very likely explanation of strata as laid down in rising and falling sea level. Bazillions of dead things exactly what the Flood did.
Don't hide behind Walther's Law. Why do all of the 'dead things' support a global fludde?

They are logical conclusions from accurate observations, to anyone who knows how to think.

Re: green river varves
They are logical conclusions from accurate observations, ...
Why so? If they are so logical, what is the reasoning?
... to anyone who knows how to think.
Then it appears that no one here knows how to think. Do you think that just declaring everyone else unable to think validates your position?

Re: Iridium boundary layer
If you had an ounce of scientific imagination you wouldn't have to ask such nonsensical questions.

So, you want us to believe something just because you say so? Because you say it's logical?

No, I wish you had the basic scientific imagination, or basic intelligence, and the honesty, to grasp my simple objective point.

So, all of the people here who disagree with you have no imagination, basic intelligence or honesty?
Do you consider yourself to be judgemental?

Re: Iridium boundary layer
I'm making such a simple obvious point that to deny it and evade it as you do shows either inferior intelligence or stubborn animosity or both. And your silly accusatory generalizations in trying to deal with what I'm saying just compound the problem.

If it is so simple and obvious, it should be an easy task for you to explain.

It doesn't need explanation. If you don't get it something is missing in your wiring.

Oh, I promise you that I'm done with Faith on this thread since she clearly has no intention of anything other than wild speculation. I've much experience with public forums so I know I don't get to pick what's posted, but I'm certainly hoping that the stated topic is narrow enough to get us back on track reasonably soon.
Thanks

Faith's typical distractions
Oh, I promise you that I'm done with Faith on this thread since she clearly has no intention of anything other than wild speculation.
Rarely, imho, does she do anything but speculate.
Yes, Faith's first post was Message 240
The thing is, the existence of a worldwide deposition of iridium can be explained in terms of the Flood of Noah too, as evidence of a meteor hit during the Flood, dispersing its iridium along with all the sediments the Flood deposited. I've mentioned it many times here and HERE's one of those posts.
If something happened then the flood did it. It doesn't matter if cramming millions of years into a mechanism running less than one year involves processes that are physically impossible, the bible is true so therefore the supernatural flood did the impossible.
... and since that post she has generated 37 speculation posts out of the next 88 posts, not one of them providing a single Earth Science Curriculum teaching lesson. Those 37 speculation posts then generated 47 replies, leaving 4 posts that pertained to the topic.
That is what she does to any topic she joins.
In Message 275 she says
This stuff is all speculative because it is about the past. They speculate about the iridium layer, I speculate about the iridium layer. I mentioned some observations I'm aware of about water deposition of sediments, which is already off the topic of iridium. I'm not interested in getting deeper into this right now.
And then proceeds to get deeper into speculation on it.
Then in Message 314 she bemoans how
Yes, ThinAir, you and others should stop answering me. It's the only reason I'm on the thread you know, answering all the blithering nonsense that's thrown at me,. Just ignore me, I'll go away. I said all I wanted to say in the first post.
And so she continues to make 6 more posts ...
Indeed, not answering anyone that is off-topic is one of the better ways to help a thread stay on topic.
Enjoy

AFAIK, the layer is global except where it is eroded away.
Not being familiar with the geology of the Grand Canyon, does this layer appear? My guess would be "no", but that's only because I hear ages of the GC being much much older than this layer. Would that mean that the layer had been eroded away before (during?) canyon formation?
Thanks
