Percy: Please Stop Your Straw Man Arguments
I haven't even thought about the salt problem and here you are answering thoughts I haven't even had. I found an article that said seepage PLUS evaporation was involved in the formation of salt lakes. Period. Yet you've gone and made some kind of theory out of it you feel a need to answer, another straw man invention of your own. Maybe you just like having a conversation with yourself. I have yet to think about the salt issues and I'll let you know if I finally get around to it. End of subject.
The rotated strata were broken off, Percy, not rotated up into the sky. There must be places along the length of the area where those strata continue to exist in their original horizontal form. Besides, here you are again focusing on an argument I wasn't making. I specifically did NOT make that argument at my blog, where the whole focus is on the strata above, that 700+ millions of years of no tectonic activity. Again, I'll let you know if I take up the angular unconformity argument again.

Re: earthquakes -- who's fault is it?
Right, NO tectonic activity for hundreds of millions of years. Perfect ad hoc response to a problem nobody even knew existed until I pointed it out. Although the continents have supposedly been moving steadily along for that whole time. Ah well. The fault lines show that they occurred after all the strata were in place too. Ah well.

Re: age
Wow, that is SOOOO funny. I laughed quite hard. 1880+ posts and that is all you got???
Sure, it's an extremely simple argument, blasts the Old Earth to smithereens. But only for those honest enough to get it and admit it.
The reason the thread took so many posts was the other subjects and the weird misreadings of my simple argument.

Re: Faith-Based Stratigraphy
Lots of silly creationist ideas about geology and biology were promoted on the basis of false unbiblical ideas of God, it's what set up the world for evolution and it's tragic, and the one you quote is just another.
Darwin had the job of answering some of the silly ideas in biology, unbiblical ideas, such as that God separately created living things to fit their environment at different times in history. The Bible says clearly that God created all things in the first six days of creation, so there is no excuse for such an unbiblical claim. Darwin was set up by such unbiblical silliness to give a plausible scientific interpretation, sometimes something as simple and obvious as that a particular species of bird populated a particular island because it originally flew there, rather than that it was brought into existence there. If any of those creationists really believed the Bible such mistakes couldn't have been made. Of course Darwin went on to continue the errors in another direction.
Some still think the Flood would show up at a particular level, or even a single layer in the strata, which is seriously inadequate thinking. We're talking a Flood that the Bible says covered the entire earth, all of it, even all the (then much lower) mountains, for a period of months. It had to have turned the works into mud, all of it that could turn into mud. Locating THAT Flood in a single layer is extremely inadequate thinking.
So of course you love examples of this nonsense. But your loving it doesn't in any way support the nonsense of evolution.

Re: Faith-Based Stratigraphy
Oh blithering blather. The creationists in question were the scientists of the day. The noncreationist scientist parties didn't have any sensible theories either, but it's the supposed creationists with their unbiblical thinking that bother me more.
