Re: How we get from rock to landscape to rock, that's the question
But the strata often have tight contacts between them and no loose soil at all between the layers, just to repeat that.
And Vimesey replied:
And to repeat, the strata themselves were the loose soil. They rested, one on top of the other, as layers of soil. (Or sediment, if you prefer). There was no loose layer of soil in between - they were layers of soil on top of each other. They then got lithified into layers of rock on top of each other. Layers of rock are what layers of lithified soil look like.
Faith, you apparently are working under a misconception that's been explained to you. The least you could do is acknowledge you were wrong & adjust your arguments accordingly. You believe we should find dirt between the rock layers & that's wrong. We shouldn't (& don't) find dirt - funny how you're ignoring this.
