Escarpments and the Genesis Flood

Escarpment is an unusual-sounding word that seldom makes its way into casual conversation, and if you use it, you may get strange looks and questions. "Do you mean the attempted escapement at the Wallkill Correctional Facility?" Or mayhaps, "I thought you lived in a house, not an escarpment complex". Then you have to explain that the things are cliffs that are mighty high and very long, found along coastal areas.

The best answer for the formation of escarpments is the Genesis Flood

Believers in long ages and uniformitarian geology think that gradual processes made these cliff things happen. However, their mechanisms are wretchedly inadequate, failing to consider important factors, such as their size. Some even say they were formed by local climates. No, that doesn't work. Biblical creationists, however, have a far more plausible mechanism and explanation based on the tremendous erosion of the Genesis Flood. Which, in turn, indicates that Earth is far younger than secularists want to believe.
Coastal great escarpments are steep slopes or cliffs found along some continental coastal areas. They are usually very long—several thousand kilometres—and often over 1,000 metres (3,300 feet) high. They run parallel to the coast, typically 100 to 200 kilometres (60 to 120 miles) inland, and are not the result of faults that caused the land to uplift, but are formed by erosion. Coastal great escarpments separate a high plateau (an erosion or planation surface) from a coastal plain.

They are one of the most significant topographical features found on earth. Remarkable examples of coastal great escarpments encircle southern Africa, and run along eastern Australia, eastern Brazil, and western India.
