Secular Geologists Getting Closer to Creation Science?

It bears repeating that everyone has the same evidence to work with; it is not uniformitarian evidence in a cage match against creationist evidence. (This principle extends to other fields of science, of course.) It is the interpretations of the evidence that are controversial — even within their fields. Worldviews drive the interpretations.

The uniformitarian worldview adheres to slow and gradual processes over long periods of time. At least, it's supposed to, but we have seen that scientists invoke rapid catastrophic processes when they find it necessary. They are doing this more nowadays.

People scoff at creation scientists as if they obtained their degrees at Billy Joe's Bible Church Academy and Bait Shop. Nope. They have legitimate degrees and have published scientific papers, and put a tremendous amount of work into their Genesis Flood models. It is interesting how some of the secular proposals have creationist leanings (some even discuss global events, not just local), but those scientists are still loyal to Darwin and deep time. We can hope that they catch on to the truth very soon.
In recent presentations hosted by Logos Research Associates, creation geologists with PhDs have given detailed models for how the Biblical Flood happened. . . .
Creation geology models like these are typically ignored by secular geologists. Tied at the hip to evolutionary biology, secular geology interprets everything in a framework of Deep Time (billions of Darwin Years) and scoffs at ideas of Biblical creation and young earth, just like the apostle Peter said people would in the last days (II Peter 3:1-8).

Nevertheless, field data and rock layers are out there for anyone to see.

This month, two geologists at University of California in Santa Barbara (UCSB) shared their model about how the first sedimentary layers in the Sauk Megasequence were laid down above basement rock. This megasequence begins at the Tapeats sandstone above the Great Unconformity, visible at many places in the Grand Canyon as a sharp boundary between igneous granite overlaid by sediments containing Cambrian fossils. Their model? Subduction at continental margins raised sea levels that flooded North America. This sounds remarkably similar to the Flood model presented by Baumgardner, except for the time frame: these secular geologists stretch the flood out over millions of years.
