Re: Superfloods Continue To Generate Heat In Earth Science (Dale)
i don't buy the 15,000 years ago...
but the principles of superflooding are those that are becoming more widely recognized...
and they certainly do set some geologists teeth "on edge"...those that are committed to lyellian uniformitarian geology are being confronted from many quaters with mounting evidence that uniformitarianism is a dead horse...long over beaten
mt st helens...OBSERVABLE geological phenomena...hours, days, weeks...NOT millions of years...including microstrata, dessication cracks, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc
and the result is a canyon system ~1/40 the size of the grand canyon system
at higher superflood energy levels...teh grand canyon could have easily formed in hours, days, weeks, months, perhaps over several years...but the grand canyon system would NOT require millions of years or even one million years or hundreds of thousands of years or tens of thousands of years
it could have VERY easily formed as the result of known inland seas, natural dam collapse(s)...events subsequent to an original gargantuan diluvial event
but naysayers are welcome to continue saying nay...in spite of the repidly mounting evidence
with eyes wide closed
and, of course...
the good news is...we all gonna know the answers someday :-)
nice find, chipndale...thanx
