Hot Springs National Park and the Genesis Flood

It seems that people all around the world are fond of hot springs, so they often turn areas into spas and such. Down Arkansas way is Hot Springs National Park, which was enjoyed by people for centuries. A unique feature is that the water does not stink of sulfur like in other hot springs.

Although it is a comparatively small national park, it covers a large area. Also, there is hiking, camping, and other national park stuff to do. In addition, the park service's educational aspect is saturated with deep time assumptions.

One glaring inconsistency common among secular geologists is used here. Namely, that the folded rocks took their shapes over millions of years due to plate tectonics. Pick up a slab of flint and try to fold it. In fact, use hydraulic machinery. What happens? It shatters, of course. No folding here, mate.

There is also the problem of a small stream in a water gap between two mountains. According to observed science, the water should have gone around. Secularists make explanations to fit the narrative and try to force the facts to fit.

These and other discrepancies between observed data and old earth stories (including unique geothermal properties) are considered by creationists using Genesis Flood models.

Seventy springs were counted in the original 1804 survey, but today there are 47 springs that still produce 750,000 to 950,000 gallons of thermal water a day. Display Springs is the only one that was left in its natural state. All others have been covered and are used to pipe water to the bathhouses and fountains within the park. Water temperatures run from about 95°F to above 147°F. Most hot springs elsewhere have a foul, sulfur-rich smell, but Hot Springs water is known for its “exceptional purity, with no unpleasant taste or odor,” making this hydrothermal system unique.
