If this didn't have such a pull on the atheism vs theism debate, I'd post this in a geology forum. My issue: I'm having a very difficult time finding some explanations (have spent dozens of hours on searching) for where geological "evolutionists" believe the layers of the earth came from (specifically the strata... in the crust). An example of another individual that expresses as much frustration as I have on finding possible explanations for this is located here (if you can get over the repetitive nature, and the general uncalled-for insulting and mockery of uniformitarianists): http://powerpointparadise.com/blog/2...irt-come-from/
Just to try to filter out some possible answers, these are at least two of the issues that need to be clarified:
1) How miles-deep worth of strata was formed.
2) Keep in mind that there are fossils that exist in this strata.
When finding answers on this subject, usually one of the two issues is left out of the equation. For instance, one may argue that there were multiple floods that attributed to the miles-thick strata over millions of years. However, the reasonable issue I find with that is described in this scenario, depicted by me --
Let's imagine that a flood causes a certain thickness of sedimentation to rest on top of the earth. That sedimentation was rock/dirt from another location. This is all a small-scale cycle that could continue on for all eternity and unless there was a larger flood each time, the depth of erosion and the height of sedimentation will always be relative to each other. So what I'm saying is, in order to have miles-deep of unique (at least alternating) layers of strata, there must be a flood that is extreme enough to displace that amount in one try (maybe two or three). Natural flooding, even the most severe floods of recent time, cannot cause sedimentation that is miles thick... as it is all around the globe.
What is your explanation of the numerous layers in the geologic column?
