Wish i could truncate like you folks, so i will just get to it -<quoted text>
We are well aware that oxygen levels were higher at times in the past, and the climate supportive of more lush flora and fauna, almost to the poles.
However, your suggestion that even super oxygen levels could compress the required thousands of feet of crinoids and other deposits into a year or a few years is absurd. You could accelerate the growth rate by 100x and still not get even close to fitting the deposits into the >6000 year window you are suggesting.
Your math is way out, if you think all this could be accounted for by sudden death of any amount of life at one time. For example, do you realise you could pile all 7 billion humans alive today into about a cubic mile? That should offer some perspective! Perhaps you should read his stats on the Crinoids again.
Because the Grand Canyon Supergroup is composed of Proterozoic rock, of course. There are precious few fossils of any kind in the world prior to the Cambrian. So what would you expect?
In fact he discusses fossil fish eating other fish etc. But I think you are confusing that period with the superfine laminate periods in which there is evidence of burrowing, but not fish remains crossing many of those layers simultaneously.
Anyway, thanks for reading it.
On the the GC supergroup, I think you summarized all too quickly. I spent some time in there. Lets be honest, if the world was formed out of water and with water in the beginning, with no evolution involved - isn't reasonable that this is a remnant of the first sediment crustal layers that man lived on? Further, it being parallel to the fractured tilt of the crustal granites below it, this structure is all remnant of the first world before the crustal breakup the Bible mentions? You see to me it fit's perfectly, if I was to ask for a proof formation system inserted into the Grand C in relation to the GU and the position of the overburden that's fossilized- its perfect. Way to many concurrent structure's to ignore and massive in scale at that. More later.
