Re: Evolution is not science
Everything in geology is quite easily accommodated in 6000 years.

Horsefeathers! By 1830 the protogeologists in England and France had given up on a young earth, a lifetime before radioactivity was even discovered. And several of them, like William Buckland, were lifelong Christians and defenders of the faith.

Re: The flood and the geological column
The Granite Wash in western Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle puts the lie to this. A huge extent of igneous rock - granite included - that washed out of the ancient Wichita Mountains and are now buried under two miles of ocean-laid sediments. Like limestones and shales and stuff.

Re: The flood and the geological column
How did the Fludde pick up the Horseshoe Reef - 200 meters thick, 30 by 200+ km in extent, and set it down in West Texas? How did it pick up the Coconino Sandstone and drop it in the Grand Canyon with its dunes still at 30-degree angles of repose? Was Fludde water more viscous, for better carrying, and also less viscous, than today's water?
