Sandstone at Zion National Park Supports Flood Geology

Way back in 1977, The Doctor said, "The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don't alter their views to fit the facts. They alter the facts to fit their views". (This became a nice graphic.) While those words describe the attitudes and actions of totalitarian governments, they are also quite fitting for what we constantly see in origins and age of the earth discussions.

There are numerous examples of dreadful research, omitted data, deception, and more by owlhoots who are determined to promote their naturalistic narrative. In this example, Zion National Park has itself some mighty nice sandstone going on. The official dogma is that the Navaho sandstone is the product of wind. Not hardly!

Secularists claim that the Zion NP sandstone was caused by wind. The facts do not fit the story. Instead they support creation science Flood geology.

Ideally, scientist saddle up their ideas and see if they will be able to ride them to the end of the trail. If ideas don't fit what is observed or disagree with other scientific facts, they should be discarded. Biblical creationists postulate catastrophic activities during the Genesis Flood, including tsunamis, the raising of mountains, and so on. Naturalists claim that the sandstone was made by wind, but in reality, this does not hold up under examination. The truth is startling.
Zion National Park exposes some of the largest and clearest cross-bedded patterns among Earth’s immense and extensive sandstone layers. In the past, continuous flow piled sand dunes on top of one another, preserving the internal structures that cut at an angle across the flat bedding surfaces. Cross-bed is the technical term for this angle. The U.S. Geological Survey says about Zion’s dunes that “the cross-bedding found in the Navajo Sandstone is the result of sand being moved by wind.” . . .

Scientists experiment with wind and water to make sand dunes in the lab. Their findings reveal a straightforward method to discern between dunes caused by wind and dunes caused by water.
