Re: Siccar Point angular unconformity video
The breccia embedded in the upper horizontal section is proof itself that it did not form millions of years after the lower vertical strata. There had to be some kind of friction to break it off and embed it.

I don't understand your logic here. Maybe you don't know what breccia is? I can't imagine that to be the case though...

Anyway, a breccia is composed of angular clasts cemented in a matrix. For example, a sedimentary breccia would be fragments of sedimentary rock cemented together with additional sedimentary deposits. These materials can have completely different sources, ie. compositions. This would imply that first sediments need to be deposited, then lithified, then broken into clasts, then more sediment deposited between the clasts, and then the entire structure lithified.

all the strata were in place horizontally, and still damp and malleable from the Flood, when tectonic force pushed the lower segment upright, abrading the vertical rocks at the point where the different kinds of rock met, that being the point of least resistance, so that the whole formation was divided between the two kinds of rock.

How do "damp and malleable" formations fracture into angular clasts? And how are they then cemented into a breccia?

Well, if you don't know the rules of the game, everything seems like a cheat.

AIG posted a link to a rationalwiki article Not even wrong. Here:Message 92 It describes these discussions about geology with Faith rather well.

It's like we are discussing an alternate universe... dozens and dozens of posts on things like how it is impossible for sediment to deposit on a slope, how a stream can't cut down through an uplift, how an unconformity is actually a slip fault, how erosion cannot produce a flat plain, how water can flow underground and produce buried canyons... etc, etc... 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.
