Catastrophes Defy Uniformitarianism

Uniformitarian geology avoids evidence of catastrophic events in the earth's past, especially the Genesis Flood. Even so, they are forced to face some evidence for catastrophe.

Backslidden theology student Charles Darwin was heavily influenced by lawyer Charles Lyell's uniformitarian geology principles (i.e., the present is the key to the past). Since secularists and liberal Christians believe atheistic interpretations of evidence in favor of evolution, they do the same for "deep time" speculations, since Darwinism requires long ages. When evidence refuting uniformitarianism and supporting catastrophism crops up, they commence to playing "I got an excuse to keep on believing evolutionary dogma".

They hugely underestimate the power of catastrophes, especially from water. A lot of water in a little bit of time can have a tremendous impact, and can affect "millions of years" of change. Of course, that's assuming they know what "millions of years" actually looks like. Every once in a while, uniformitarian geologists have to give a nod to catastrophes, but still keep their worldview based on circular reasoning and assumptions. If they gave serious consideration to the abundant evidence of the greatest catastrophe of all, the Genesis Flood, they might have to change their tune.
One Colorado storm in 2013 caused hundreds or thousands of years’ worth of mountain erosion. This is causing a rethink on the power of catastrophic events.

A big storm hit Colorado in September 2013. Scott, Suzanne and Robert Anderson of the University of Colorado went looking for geological changes that resulted to the Front Range of the Rockies. In the journal Geology, they report 1100 landslides and debris flows in a “historically sedate landscape.”
