Young Earth Evidence 1: Scant Sediment

Presenting evidence that some people don't want you to hear, I am situated behind my unregistered assault keyboard — I may or may not be somewhere around Kingston, New York. Freedom of speech, freedom of thought, freedom from evolutionary dogma. Remember, "Question Evolution Day" is coming!

This is the first of ten articles giving evidence for a young Earth. Evolutionists and old-Earth creation compromisers scramble to find excuses to negate this material, preferring to rely on biased and assumption-riddled radiometric dating. One reason for this is that an old Earth (and old universe) implies the fundamentally flawed concept that, given enough time, evolution is possible.

Another reason that they fight for an ancient Earth is to bolster their circular reasoning based on old-Earth assumptions. When each article is published, expect people to run to the pooling of ignorance and propaganda sites for facile reassurance that none of this is true, and they do not have to actually examine the evidence.

First, we have the stone-in-the-sandal irritant that there is not enough sediment on the ocean floor to cover billions of years of erosion. The evidence fits nicely with a recent creation and a global flood at the time of Noah, however. The article is neither lengthy nor technical. It serves as an introduction and, hopefully, will encourage intellectually honest people to investigate further.
If sediments have been accumulating on the seafloor for three billion years, the seafloor should be choked with sediments many miles deep.
Every year water and wind erode about 20 billion tons of dirt and rock debris from the continents and deposit them on the seafloor. Most of this material accumulates as loose sediments near the continents. Yet the average thickness of all these sediments globally over the whole seafloor is not even 1,300 feet (400 m).
Some sediments appear to be removed as tectonic plates slide slowly (an inch or two per year) beneath continents. An estimated 1 billion tons of sediments are removed this way each year. The net gain is thus 19 billion tons per year. At this rate, 1,300 feet of sediment would accumulate in less than 12 million years, not billions of years.
