How Many Grand Canyons Do You Want?

Uniformitarian geologists, using "the present is the key to the past" as their paradigm, tell us that aside from the occasional catastrophe, the slow and gradual processes that occur today are responsible for the features of the earth's surface that we observe. However, their explanations fall far short of giving adequate explanations (faith-based assertions need not apply).

Traditional geology fails to explain observed formations. Biblical creationist models of Noah's Flood do a far better job of explaining what we see. The Grand Canyon is the most popular example, but it is not the only "grand canyon" on Earth.

Biblical creation scientists have a far different explanation for observed data — and a far better one. The Grand Canyon is the most popular example of catastrophic Noachian Flood processes. However, this is not the only "grand canyon", nor is it the largest.
On the seminar trail, I and other ICR speakers often use Grand Canyon as an example of Flood-caused geological features. We frequently run into opposition from people who’ve been taught that it took millions of years for the canyon to be carved out. We counter with studies that lead us to believe that each of the pancake-like layers was rapidly deposited by catastrophic hydraulic forces, and that the igneous and metamorphic deposits were caused by events quite unlike anything we see in modern times. The continent-wide coverage of the layers clearly speaks to an unimaginably devastating flood. The rates, scales, and intensity of the forces involved dwarf those of our experience.
