just soft enough not to be brittle but solid enough to break into pieces will do it just fine.

So, somewhere on the hardness and tensile strength scales, then? Any idea what the readings would be?

the tectonic pressure should have had the effect of hardening the rock at the same time it folded it.

Are there some references in physics, chemistry, and geology that would explain your reasoning here?

because in the enormous time spans described by standard theory the lower section of Siccar and Mt. Rushmore too, shouldn't be holding up well at all.

Why wouldn't they have held up exactly as they have? Can you show any tests that have been done and reported in the scientific literature that shows there is something odd about the lower sections of Siccar and Mt. Rushmore?

There must be some evidence that you are interpreting to reach these conclusions.

all the time being told that we are nuts and completely out of touch with reality.

Not even wrong... we are talking about an alternate reality that Faith sees and we don't.

You have described this perfectly.

It reminds me of a sci-fi movie where the time traveler ends up in a mental ward because no one can understand what she is talking about. A complete break with reality.

I'm sure there are though I rely on my intuitive genius about such things, and this is really quite recognizable by anyone I would think. Oh maybe not you, but you know, most anyone. Such intense pressure on damp porous shapable stuff would force out the water enough to harden it some. Kinda obvious dontcha think?
