And I'm quite certain that you, someone with zero education in geology, sitting at your computer, will think up all kinds of problems that people with PhDs will never be able to solve.

Hubris much?

It has always struck me as odd that fundies devote so much time and effort into trying to find a naturalistic explanation for their mythical flood, while looking for magical explanations for things that actually happened. -- Dr. Adequate

Re: Related Dating Questions
I guess I'm hoping (no basis for this hope, I grant you) that some day you will realize the ridiculousness of you trying to out think people who have spent decades studying a complicated subject. But as Jimmy Stewart said in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, "The only causes worth fighting for are lost causes." I refuse to give up on you, Buz. I'm convinced that you actually do have functioning brain matter and I'm going to keep trying to reach it.

Re: Related Dating Questions
That would, of course, be true assuming a relative uniformitarion hypothesis, but not necessarily from a catastrophic hypothesis.

So under a "catastrophic hypothesis," something or someone is coming along and sliding newer material underneath already existing material?
