The earth has many layers of sediments thousands of feet thick.
How could one year-long catastrophe account for all this sediment? The Grand Canyon is almost three hundred miles long, a mile deep, and four to twelve miles across.
Other old-earth creationists simply suggest that what is communicated in Genesis 1 is a literary form of the ancient Near East describing a perfect creation.
Genesis 1 was never intended to communicate history, at least in their view.
I will first briefly discuss the biblical aspects of the question, then move on to geology, the flood, and the Grand Canyon.
First, how do the “young-earth” and “old-earth” positions view the Scriptures?
Unfortunately, neither Christian conservative Old Testament scholars nor Christian scientists are in universal agreement.
ICR has been conducting these tours for over ten years, so everything runs extremely well.Evolutionary geologists have described this sandstone as originating from an ancient desert.Remnants of sand dunes can be seen in many outcrops of the formation in a phenomenon called cross-bedding.This prominent formation is found only a few hundred feet below the rim of the canyon and forms one of the many cliffs in the canyon.Its distinctive yellow cream color makes it look like a thick layer of icing between two cake layers.
