Re: The point is not whether God is behind it but whether it is miraculous
Tsunamis leave very huge, characteristic evidence behind. That's how we can distinguish tsunaimis from, say deserts. Deserts also leave characteristic evidence behind.

I'm talking about tsunami sized waves that covered huge distances, even in some cases whole continents. There is no other word for that than tsunami, although I don't assume those waves would be much like the tsunamis we see today, which for one thing would be much smaller.

I've never, ever, seen anything funnier in my entire life.

Then you give me a word for a wave that covers most of a continent if you don't like the term tsunami for that.

My pleasure. Delusion.

Re: To edge: no tectonic activity in Grand Canyon Paleozoic
...The Tapeats on your diagram is interrupted by the Great Unconformity...

That alone means no flood was involved.

Re: the great unconformity
This was unbelievably funny. The best comedy I've been subjected to for a long, long time.

Surely you don't have to talk Geologese ALL the time do you?

I guess that when people talk about geology, they normally speak 'Geologese'!

What do you expect when people discuss truncated strata? That they should speak Cosmologese or Genetisese or Moleculese or Atomosese?

Anyway, thanks edge. Your posts are amazing. I'm really, really tempted to go and spend a fortune to go and see those rocks myself!
