Wrong. A global flood would have organized fossils by density. This is not what is actually seen.<quoted text>
(38) Supposed evolutionary fossil sequences often parallel the ecological zonation that occurs today (Morris p:686). If a global flood mixed organisms from different areas, it would create the illusion of a fossil sequence over time.
And how do you account for that Iridium layer? And the impact crater off the coast of the Yucatan?(39) Dinosaurs and many other prehistoric creatures died out suddenly. A catastrophe such as a global flood could have produced this result.
Wrong. These are common in swamp deposits and the process can be seen happening today.(40) Polystrate fossils (viz. vertical fossil tree trunks) that are found worldwide indicate turbulent or rapid deposition. A global flood would be required to do this worldwide.
or a swamp.(41) Polystrate fossils also form when water-logged timber sinks in a large body of water. A year long global flood could produce worldwide polystrate fossils formed in this way.
A falsehood.(42) Animal tracks and other ephemeral markings (ripple-marks and raindrop imprints) have been preserved throughout the geological column. Rapid covering of these markings is required for this preservation worldwide - ie. by a global flood.
A dramatic falsehood. We have records of many different meteor impacts, including the one associated with the death of the dinosaurs. The 'large number' hitting each year are mostly very small. And yes, we can pick up their isotopic signatures.(43) Meteorites are basically absent from the geologic column. With the large number of meteorites hitting the earth each year, they should be very plentiful throughout the sedimentary rocks - unless much of the world's sedimentary rocks were laid down in one year.
This is caused by rebound from the ice sheets (ice is heavy and tends to push the continental plates down).(46) There is evidence of a recent drastic rise in sea level. A global flood could easily have created this feature.
(47) Raised shorelines are found worldwide indicating a time when the world had a different sea level. A consistent interpretation of this is that a global flood altered the levels of the oceans and seas.
Runoff from glaciers is a better explanation, especially given the distribution of glacial erratics (rocks carried by the glaciers) and drumlins.(50) There is a universal occurrence of rivers in valleys too large for the present stream. Slow erosion over millions of years could not have created these valleys as the mountains would have eroded, keeping pace with the valley erosion. The drainage of global floodwaters from the land surface could easily create such wide valleys in a short period of time.
Hint: Henry Morris is a liar.
