Geologic column
Evidence of multiple layers of mature marine environments on mountains is rather evidence of long ages -- ages to form mature marine environments, ages to cover them, ages for the other mature marine environments to form, and ages for the sedimentary basin to be pushed up into mountains by tectonic activity.

If there is evidence for a geologic column, which represents epochs of earth's erosion, then there is reason to assume that there were no mountains before, and they later rose from subduction, still leaving the trilobites in the same strata that is now a mountain. If not, then one would have to consider how trilobite are hundreds of miles from the nearest ocean, in a land-locked environment, such as Tibet or Afghanistan.

Re: Geologic column
You are mixing "geological column" with "plate tectonics" when they aren't necessarily linked, but reading through the misunderstanding we can still get to this point.

Perhaps I didn't explain as best I could. You may have understood, but I wouldn't anyone else not understanding me. I should probably clarify. What I meant was that if it can be determined that the trilobites on say, Mt. Everest, are further down in the strata, and not intermingled with contemporary creatures, there would not be any reason to assume a global flood. And least not in this instance.

True, but one would also have to consider that this same evidence shows hundreds of years duration that the various layers were underwater, and that where non-marine layers divide marine layers, one would have to consider various mechanisms that could account for multiple occurances as well.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean here. Can you expound for me?

I am not aware of any means by which this is evidence for a "noachian flood" of only a few hundred days, tops, are you?

Don't you have to conclude that this is evidence of something that is demonstrably NOT a "noachian flood" because it does not match the storyline at all, yes?

Alright, I think I'm beginning to understand you. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you are saying that if a Noachian flood did in fact occur in the manner the bible states, for a relatively short amount of time, there should not be as much marine diversity as there is found on the mountains? Am I getting that right?

*side note* I heard that the cancer is in remission. That is wonderful news! May it stay in remission for the rest of your natural life. Keep fighting the good fight. :)
