Rapid Erosion and a Young Earth

One of the simplest evidences for a young Earth that frustrates secular geologists is the rates of erosion. That is, if our planet was as old as claimed, even using uniformitarian rates of erosion, we wouldn't be seeing the mountains that are clearly there today.


Rapid erosion is evidence for recent creation, and does not support long-age uniformitarian geology.

We see rapid erosion happening today, and it's not fitting into long age schemes. Sections of cliffs fall into the sea in England (don't stand too close to the cliffs of Dover, big drop-offs happen a little too often for comfort), and Yosemite Valley has big chunks falling about once a year.
Recently in Dorset, England, bad weather washed a massive section of a cliff into the sea revealing scores of ammonite fossils. Creation scientists are interested in this cliff fall because substantial erosion was accomplished in literally seconds. It didn't take hundreds of thousands to millions of years of slow and gradual erosion.

The cliff fall at Dorset isn't the only recent example of rapid and significant erosion. Uniformitarian geologists claim the famous White Cliffs of Dover, composed of calcium carbonate, were formed in the Cretaceous Period between 65 and 140 million years ago. But there is evidence of significant fracturing every decade or so causing authorities to urge visitors to stay far away from the cliff edge lest they topple into the ocean when the rocks give way. No, the evidence supports recent creation, not long ages.
