Biblical Flood Best Explains Erosion

Gradual erosion over long periods of time, based on the consistency of current rates, do not give an adequate explanation of what has been measured. There are four reasonable methods for calculating continental erosion, and they indicate that a great deal has occurred. Extrapolating current rates backward and coming up with figures in the millions of years is unrealistic.

Standard uniformitarian geology does not adequately explain the huge volume of continental erosion. Using the Great Biblical Flood as a starting point gives far better explanations.

When using the Noachian Flood as a starting point, things make much more sense. There are many factors that uniformitarianism fails to explain, and in fact, this methodology raises many questions. Biblical creationist Michael Oard explains.
Massive amounts of sediments, many kilometres thick, with buried plants and animals, were laid down early in the Great Biblical Flood (often called Noah’s Flood). These were cemented into sedimentary rock and the organisms were fossilized. Then the mountains and continents rose up and the valleys and ocean basins sank (Psalm 104:6–9). This caused the Flood water to rush off the continents, sometimes at high speed. This is called the Recessive Stage of the Flood, and probably started about Day 150, nearly midway into the Flood. It would have resulted in enormous erosion of vast areas of the continents. The results of this erosion are clearly visible in every landscape around the world..
