iama's quote: "Although only about 8% of the earth's rocks are sedimentary, 75%-80% of the Earth's land area is covered in sedimentary rock. Therefore, geologists point out, there is irrefutable evidence that at least 75% of the Earth's land was once covered in water."
iama: Where did the, above, quote originate, steven_guy?
d_p_m: That's totally irrelevant. As I pointed out in a previous post, 75% sedimentary rock coverage is exactly the sort of thing you would expect on a tectonically active planet that is 75% covered by water.
There was no global flood. Not only was 75% of the planet covered by water, 75% is still covered by water. There is no evidence for a flood here.
iama: Re-read the quote: "75%-80% of the Earth's land area is covered in sedimentary rock." The quote is not including the "water area" of The Earth, only the "land area" of The Earth!
And 20%-25% of the Earth's land is NOT covered in seimentry rock.
If 100% of the world was covered in water that you "fundamentalsit christian creationists" claim laid down all the sedimentary rock layers we see on Earth, than why isn't the Earth covered 100% in sedimentary rock?
Nor does it mean that the sedimentary rock was all laid down at once.
Why is this so hard for you to understand?
There was a global Flood, and the sedimentary rock material in such great quantities is great evidence for The Flood!
No, it is not. That REAL science can demonstrate that there are THOUSANDS of different rock strata laid down at different times over the course of millions of years, completely refutes this statement.
That you IGNORE, reject, dismiss, disparage and flat out lie about this is illustrative of the sort of mental state into which "fundamentalist christian creationists" must fall in order to rationalize their "literal and inerrant" belief in the Bible.
The fact that these sedimentary rock layers contain fossils of all life-forms, and that fossilization requires flood-like conditions for fossil formation,
Epic fail. This merely demonstrates that you don't know anything about fossilization.
is another evidence for The Flood!
There is NO evidence for the "flood". You are merely trying to convince yourself that the "flood" was real with the falsehoods you have posted.
"creationism" ... 2000+ years worth of ABYSMAL FAILURE ... and proud of it.
