Big Flood, Smaller Floods, and the English Channel

Secular geologists rely on uniformitarianism as a de facto explanation for many things. "The present is the key to the past", that is, present processes extrapolated backward give long ages. This is invoked to try and explain away catastrophism where the Genesis Flood is used by biblical creationists to explain what we see in land forms and such. When the evidence is overwhelming, uniformitarian geologists reluctantly allow that catastrophic flooding did indeed happen. Sometimes. They're riding the right trail, but refuse to admit that the Genesis Flood is the best explanation for observed evidence.

Secular geologists are reluctantly allowing that floods are explanations for many observed land forms and such. The Genesis Flood is by far the best explanation.

Research in the English Channel and the rest of the North Sea is yielding evidence that massive flooding is the reason that the British Isles are separated from the rest of the continent. This is added to the list of other flooding explanations, including subglacial and the Lake Missoula flood, which are subsequent floods as a result of the Genesis Flood.
Recently the Brits have found out what really separated them from mainland Europe: catastrophic flooding! And not once but twice! Detailed studies of the bottom of the English Channel have revealed an ancient river valley that once collected the waters of the Thames, Somme, Rhine-Meuse and the Scheldt—rivers that all discharge today into the North Sea.

High resolution imagery of the seafloor has not only revealed an ancient river but also clear signs of large-scale flooding (megafloods)—signs like flat-topped, elongated and streamlined islands up to 10 km long and 4 km wide, plus grooves nearly 200 m wide, 2–3 m deep and 10–15 km long.
