There is evidence of interruptions to deposition in the British Isles. ...
Across the bottom of the picture is Silurian layers that were laid down horizontally, lithified, then tilted by plates colliding. The tilt plates were eroded from the top and a layer of new sediment laid down & lithified (left center of picture).
What Faith doesn't get is that the deformation associated with rifting is different from collision. It usually starts with uplift and erosion followed by deposition and tilting. In fact, the tilting of the Old Red Sand (upper unite) in your image may be related to the rifting which began in the Permian. I'm not sure about that, but it is the type of deformation that I would expect. This type of plate margin is also called a 'passive margin' for obvious reasons.
The other problem is that I seriously doubt that anyone here knows where the new geological boundary of the Eurasian continental mass is in this area. I did an investigation of the geology once and it looked to be several hundred kilometers out to sea from the Irish and Scottish coasts toward Iceland. Frankly, it is a fascinating topic and draws one to the puzzle of Rockall Island.
So, in summary, we can confidently dismiss the mutterings of Faith when it comes to the geology of divergent plate boundaries.
You know I can point to geological evidence that supports the Flood. We can debate about the timing of course but the Bible is pretty clear about timing it at roughly 4300 years ago and although you dispute the Bible, I of course don't. Archaeology isn't divinely inspired, believe it or not.
It's not just Egypt! What about Sumer and Agade and the Yangshao "painted pottery" culture of China? Were all of those somehow mis-dated?
If you want to peg the universe at six thousand years old (the "subjective guesswork" of adherents of the young earth creation hypothesis using multicentenarian biblical patriarch ages and similar "science"...) with a flood reducing the earth to a tabula rasa a millennium or two later you get a very dubious chronology indeed.

With no evidence of a population bottleneck in all species at that time, no evidence of hyperfast evolution of existing species (especially beetles) from the preserved created "kinds" either in the fossil record or in the genetic record.
It's as if God/s big joke is to make everything both look old and match what evolution would look like while hiding the evidence of creation and a massive flood.
And let's not forget the fish. If you dump all that fresh water in the oceans and let it swirl around for more than a month all the fish that have to have salt water to survive will find life difficult!
