The Crustal Area of Earth Above Sea Level Is Mostly Stratified Rock Probably Laid Down Under A Watery Condition
Vast Gaps In The Geologic Record In Both Time And Area Support Catastrophic Formation Of The Record
A Comparison of Strata in the Grand Canyon AZ and Sandia Peak NM
It should be noted that there is a supposed gap, an unconformity, of one billion years between the Pennsylvanian exposed top layers of the Sandia Mts and the underlying Sandia Granite. Yet just 394 miles to the west that same Pennsylvanian layer is deep under overlying strata and has thick layers of strata before reaching the granites below. There is also a (Great) unconformity at the base of these strata, at the Tapeats, interface with the Vishnu granite. These observations are supportive of vast ebbing and flowing of watery layers, with rapid alternating deposition and erosion that varied greatly in these nearby regions.That it was rapid is supported by the fact that there is no erosion of the contact of the Hermit Shale and Coconino sandstone strata-which are supposedly 20 myo different in age of deposition (see below). The data are more supportive of large scale massive and rapid flooding at least region wide. That there are sandstones like the Tapeats and Coconino found continent wide would argue for continent wide flooding (and probably cross continents).
