Secular Geomorphology Fails to Explain Landforms

Some things sound simple at the onset, and can be generally true. Suppose I saddle up the horse and want to ride 100 miles (161 km). I make it 20 miles (32 km) the first day. Simple math says I'll be done in five days, don't you reckon? But I assumed that, since I started on flat terrain, it would be that way the entire trip. No washed-out gullies to go around, no steep inclines, the horse doesn't go lame or get tired, and so forth. Also, I can't make a blanket statement that this distance can be traveled by horse in five days, because I'm assuming that the horse I'm riding would be typical of all horses.

Secular methods of geology fail to explain the shape of the Earth's surface. Creation scientists and Genesis Flood geology models handle the evidence far more efficiently.

This is similar to uniformitarian assumptions. Watching a stream erode the banks and calculate, you can get a rate of erosion — but that has a whole heap of assumptions, including that the water flow does not change. Secular geologists like to use millions of years so they can make their assertions plausible, because millions of years are beyond the ken of most people. These long-age projections and assumptions show bankruptcy in secular geological methods, since there are landforms that geomorphology cannot explan, such as mountains, inselbergs, water gaps, and more. Genesis Flood models from creation scientists deals with the data far more efficiently — which indicates that Earth is nowhere near as old as secularists claim.
Geomorphology is a subfield of geology which specializes in studying and explaining the shape of the earth’s surface—its mountain ranges, plateaus, and plains. It includes study of small-scale features such as hills, valleys, slopes, and canyons. The individual features of the landscape within the field of geomorphology are called landforms. Geomorphology is a ‘gold mine’ of evidence for the Genesis Flood.

Geomorphology—a major mystery for secular geology

Although we all see and enjoy the beauty of the mountains, rivers, and valleys of the earth, it is amazing how difficult it is for secular science to explain their origin.1 Their difficulty arises because they begin with an incorrect assumption about what happened in the past. They reject the biblical Flood and assume uniformitarianism, which insists the earth’s rocks, fossils, and surface features may only be explained using present slow-and-gradual processes over millions of years.

Elevated flat-topped landforms such as plateaus and mesas are no less difficult for the uniformitarian to explain.
