Re: science versus mental conjuring
ABE: What you see on the sea floor today is NOT the Geologic Column, ...

Actually, it is the geological column for that location.

... has nothing whatever to do with your fantasy of a Geologic Timetable.

Actually, it does represent the geological time scale at that location. It is just a very short period compared to some others.

quote:
All that was over and done with in the Flood, ...

Except that sediments are being deposited today, continuing the billions of years' record.

quote:
... and of COURSE you don't see it, you're looking in the wrong place, you have the wrong assumptions, you have the wrong THEORY.

I'm not sure where else there is to look other than at the geology for a geological column.

You complaints aside, the theory works. The concept of a single catastrophic transgression is at odds with the coordinated, general geological column.

Edited by Admin, : Fix quote.

Re: science versus mental conjuring
Golly gee, I would have thought so, but then there are all those EvC worthies who insisted in the Grand Canyon arguments that of COURSE the whole stack of strata could have been unaffected by tectonic activity for a billion years. No big deal

Why would that not be possible?

Yeah, in the present, NN, which of course is all that can actually be observed, but the past remains inert and silent, that was my point of course.

So past events leave no effects behind? Isn't that what Cosmos is about?

The planets move, the fossils don't.

The point being?

You know what water usually does, you have no idea what the oceans would do if they covered all the land mass in the world, how the tides and the currents would behave among other things.

Non sequitur.
What does this have to do with fossils and planets?

And I take tectonic activity a lot more seriously than some here too.

Meaning what?

How many of my reports have you read?

Edited by edge, : No reason given.
