Then you are out of touch.

I certainly could be uninformed regarding terminology used outside my area of expertise, however, my statement stands. I have never heard of ridged terrain sea shores.

Not that Google is the absolute authority but I googled "ridged terrain sea shore" and "ridged terrain" AND "seashore" which resulted in 0 results. This sounds like a made up creationist concoction along with "fountains of the deep" i.e. "hydroplate theory" in which a great layers of liquid water (much thicker than our present day water tables) existed below the Earth's crust.

In fact, I believe this hydroplate theory is the counterpart to the creationists canopy theory in which they believed that before the time of the flood a great canopy of water vaper enveloped the earth. And yes I use the word "theory" loosely here to retain their own wording.

See the following reference for more info:

Hydroplate Theory: http://creationwiki.org/Hydroplate
Canopy Theory: http://creationwiki.org/Canopy_theory
