Here's how the points discussed above affect his analysis. Sedimentary mountains such as the Sierras and Andes rose after the Flood by isostatic rebound. Proceedings of the second international conference on creationism, vol. The stretched pebble conglomerate in Death Valley National Monument (Wildrose Canyon Rd., 15 mi. 190), for example, contains streambed pebbles metamorphosed to quartzite and stretched to 3 or more times their original length. Table 1 shows Woodmorappe's analysis and some additional calculations. Page numbers refer to Woodmorappe, 1996, from which the figures in the row are taken. [Baumgardner, 1990a; Austin et al., 1994] New ocean basins. Catastrophic plate tectonics: a global flood model of earth history. In the beginning: compelling evidence for creation and the Flood. Plastically deformed stone is also common around salt diapirs [Jackson et al, 1990]. Standard theory is that they were laid down before Earth's atmosphere contained much oxygen. Ecological zonation, hydrodynamic sorting, and differential escape fail to explain: How could these have appeared in the midst of a catastrophic flood?
A literal interpretation of the Flood story in Genesis, however, does imply certain physical consequences which can be tested against what we actually observe, and the implications of such an interpretation are investigated below. Creationists argue against the local flood model because it doesn't fit their own literalist preconceptions, but I know of no physical evidence contrary to such a model. The continental tree-ring record - absolute chronology, C-14 calibration and climatic-change at 11 KA. One formation in New Jersey is six kilometers thick.
He then calculates that this would increase the total animal mass by 2-3% and decides that this amount is small enough that he can ignore it completely. It is important to take the size of animals into account when considering how much space they would occupy because the greatest number of species occurs in the smallest animals. Vermicomposting could reduce the rate of waste accumulation, but it requires maintenance of its own. The biology of spiders, 2nd ed., Oxford University Press, New York. The following objections are covered in more detail by Brown. Walt Brown's model proposes that the Flood waters came from a layer of water about ten miles underground, which was released by a catastrophic rupture of the earth's crust, shot above the atmosphere, and fell as rain. Kent Hovind proposed that the Flood water came from a comet which broke up and fell on the earth. [Johnsen et al, 1992,; Alley et al, 1993] A worldwide flood would be expected to leave a layer of sediments, noticeable changes in salinity and oxygen isotope ratios, fractures from buoyancy and thermal stresses, a hiatus in trapped air bubbles, and probably other evidence. Why did the Flood not leave traces on the sea floors? [Twenhofel, 1961] In a year of the Flood, they could have settled about half a meter. Such layers are sometimes meters in width, interbedded with sediments containing marine fossils.
