Geological Theories have their Faults

As theories in uniformitarian geology receive more data and scrutiny, many need serious revision or must be abandoned. In some of the instances below, the changes unintentionally  support the Genesis Flood models of creationists, and some thwart climate change models.

Glaciers in what is now the Gobi Desert were determined to have actually shrunk during the Ice Age. Cold air is not the only factor necessary to form glaciers or to have an ice age. In fact, secular geologists are hard pressed to present a plausible model for any ice age, let alone, the several that they assume occurred in Earth's history. The Genesis Flood models provide necessary and sufficient conditions to explain the Ice Age, however.

Geologists assumed that only tsunamis are able to move huge boulders, but eyewitness accounts showed that storms are capable of such action. How about a big storm, like the Genesis Flood? That is the best explanation for the movement of quartzite boulders, and the boulders moved in Ireland in a recent comparatively small storm are an indication.

Traces of extinct lakes are found, but puzzle geologists because lake systems existed in both colder and warmer climates. The Pleistocene was considered a means of working with global climate change, but a recent study is showing that this idea is not so hot.
