Creationist Article from 1986 Still Refutes Uniformitarian Geology

A creationist paper submitted in 1986 *still* refutes uniformitarian geology. The evidence fits the global Flood model far better.

A common and continually frustrating phenomenon for uniformitarian geologists is the deformation of sedimentary rock strata. Evolutionists contrive ad hoc "explanations" when cornered by the facts (some of which are laughable), or simply make assertions. Large-scale "folding" of rock layers has been justified with illogical responses such as, "There's a lot of it all over the world, so it must have happened". (Yes, I've actually been given that bit of question begging as an answer.) Uniformitarianism does not provide the answers. Global flood models do a much better job explaining observed data.

Doctors Steve Austin and John D. Morris submitted a paper at the 1986 International Conference on Creationism. It is still valid almost three decades later, refuting nineteenth century geologic dogma.
Introduction
Evolutionists and creationists have different views on the origin of sedimentary rock strata. Evolutionists, who uphold the uniformitarian doctrine of 19th-century geologists, suppose that sediments were deposited slowly over millions of years and then hardened into sedimentary rock. This means that soft sediments, however they accumulated, would surely have lithified (hardened into rock) over excessively long periods of time. However, some of these rocks seem to demonstrate the opposite—these layers were clearly deformed before they had time to lithify.
Creationists who hold the catastrophist doctrine of Scripture propose that most sedimentary strata were deposited rapidly by Noah’s Flood. They may have undergone deformation soon thereafter, and the total time span of this process represents only thousands of years.
Stratigraphy
A spectacular exposure of a thick stratigraphic sequence (a group of rock layers) occurs at Split Mountain in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in eastern San Diego County, California. The layers tilt at 20 degrees to the southwest and can easily be seen while driving by them laterally, with all 17,000 vertical feet in plain view. The sediments in these layers were rapidly deposited by moving water and later exposed by tilting and subsequent erosion.
