[PS On the river delta point: how do you explain thousands of square miles of layered fresh-water deposits contiaining land plants? The only place thiscould happen is in a huge river delta but there is no sign of deltaic geometry in the freshwater layers of the Grand Canyon.]
Have you ever been to eastern Arkansas or northwest Mississippi? Before the Corps of Engineers made all those levees, this whole area got a new layer of sediment every decade or so, and it's chock full of land plants. And it's 500 river miles from the Mississippi River delta!

Those reefs could simply be compactifid transported shell material.
El Capitan, the highest peak in Texas, has 1600 vertical feet of coral, with portions in growth position throughout. And the reef sits next to the Delaware Basin, with 7000 feet of laminated shales and wind-carried sands, in inch-thick and less layers. And the base of the reef is over half a mile above sea level.
You are blowing smoke. Very thin smoke.

Yes there are salt and chalk to think about. With accelerated decay heating and inorganic calicum I thnk these are all within the realms of possibility.
The thread on that topic remains open.
Ca(+2) + 2(HCO3)- = (still!)CaCO3 + H2O + CO2, whether inorganic or biologically mediated.

So? We already believe the Siberian traps are a flood event.
I've presented you with a reference with about twenty argon-argon dates of 249.4 +/- 0.5 million years for the basalt of the Siberian Traps and their eastward extension, which is buried by up to 2 km of sediments. You have yet to comment either on the age, or on how long it takes 1,300,000 cubic kilometers of molten rock to cool below the boiling point of water.

Re: Part 2 of 2 Parts
Mr Birkeland, I don't usually wear a hat, but I just put one on only to be able to take it off to you. That was excellent.
