One Flood, Many Rock Layers

This child lives an hour north of New York City, at the foothills of the Catskills. Even here, we have road cuts where you can see the rock layers. Take a look around, you can see layers all around the world, whether from construction work or natural formations. It is a fair question to ask how the Genesis Flood could form so many layers, especially when we are bombarded with uniformitarian (deep time) views from the secular science industry.

From the perspective of biblical creationists, the Genesis Flood was exceptionally turbulent and had a heap of activity. Water did not just stand in place and maybe slosh around a bit. The global flood formed layers, and creationists draw from Genesis, geology, and logic.
How did the layers get there? Most people believe that many layers require many years. They imagine ancient worlds that gave each layer unique colors, grain types, and fossils.

In truth, you don’t need much time to make rock layers if you have plenty of water. Some floods move more sediment in mere hours than regular rain moves over centuries. How about a world-destroying flood? That would cause more erosion and deposition than most people can even imagine. No wonder those who view Genesis as history see Noah’s Flood behind the many varied, thick, and continent-covering rock layers across the world.
