Ever since I first heard about the "seashells on mountaintops = global flood" claim in high school, I really wondered how people who had basic education could make these sorts of claims so nonchalantly.

You learn about plate tectonics in elementary school. You learn about it again in high school. There's a Magic Schoolbus episode about plate tectonics, for Chrissake.

Re: So, can we get back to the shell game?
Sorry, but I thought it was relevant. After all, tectonic forces are what push seashell-bearing strata up to become mountains, aren't they?

Anyone with an elementary level of education should be able to figure this out. This is why it boggles the mind.
