The Making of Fjords

When thinking of fjords, those inlets with cliffs or steep sides, many people think of Norway. Sognefjord up thataway is probably the most famous, but they are found in several other parts of the world. The way they formed is rather involved, the product of the Genesis Flood and glaciers.

Secular geologists tell us that glaciers carved out fjords over a long period of time, but a creation science Flood model provides a far better explanation.

Uniformitarian geologists have their ideas on how fjords were made. (No, Slartibartfast was not involved, nor was American industrialist Henry Fjord). Secularists tell you that glaciers carved them out, but a better explanation can be found by using a creation science Flood model. The fjords were not carved out by the glaciers, but tectonic action and tremendous amounts of water laid the groundwork (heh!), and glaciers also played their part.
Today’s feedback is a question from C.O. of Norway about the origin of fjords.
Did the ice form the fjords or were they already there and the ice then filled them? Was it the continental plates crashing into each other? My family has been avidly discussing this since our son was questioned about it recently.
CMI geologist Dr Tas Walker responds:

Hi C.O.,

In some ways all those ideas apply. Let me explain.
