The writer presents a radical evaluate of the beginning of 1 of the Earth’s most renowned icons, Grand Canyon. mentioning ample geomorphological facts, he attributes the canyon’s formation to occasions that happened close to the top of the Noachian Flood. He exhibits that earlier than the canyon itself might have been eroded, millions of ft of strata have been got rid of by way of great sheet erosion. Then he develops the speculation that the canyon used to be quickly carved by means of late-Flood channelized erosion. Oard additionally cites proof which demonstrates that the evolutionists’ uniformitarian principles are very faraway from offering passable motives. He additionally examines many of the creationist hypotheses, together with the dam-breach speculation, and reveals all of them to be wanting.

This e-book, on hand merely as an booklet, is written to the extent of well-educated laypersons, and is seriously referenced to supply substance in case you are extra technically orientated. There are a few 134 figures unfold all through its envisioned 328 pages.

What Is the Dam-Breach Hypothesis? My Journey Away from the Hypothesis Three Seemingly Fatal Problems Canyonlands and Hopi Lakes Should Have Breached at Low Points 1) Canyonlands Lake would have overflowed at the wrong location 2) Lake Hopi also would have overflowed at the wrong location No Evidence for the Lakes 1) Lake Vernal Never Existed 2) No Lake Bottom Sediments for the Other Two Lakes a) Why thick lake bottom sediments should have accumulated b) What about the Bidahochi Formation? c) Could the lake bottom sediments have been scoured out during the dam breach?

6. Illustration of a monocline in which the beds bend downward. Monoclines are often cored by faults in the subsurface (drawn by Peter Klevberg). The elevations of the small plateaus range from about 5,000 to 9,000 ft (1,524 to 2,743 m) above mean sea level (msl). Volcanism has spread late Cenozoic lavas over the plateau surfaces in some areas, especially south of Grand Canyon. The San Francisco volcanic field is located near the Mogollon Rim, the southwest edge of the Colorado Plateau. Other volcanic fields exist on the northwest rim of Grand Canyon.

The best method of doing this comes from the geological subfield of geomorphology. The origin of Grand Canyon is a geomorphological problem, and geomorphology indicates that Grand Canyon is just one of thousands of narrow, erosional features on the Earth’s surface that can be attributed to the late Flood period (Chapter 5). Next, the late-Flood-runoff hypothesis will be presented, starting in Chapter 6 with a description of the “Great Denudation”—tremendous sheet erosion by wide currents over the entire area, giving rise to the Grand Staircase.
