Global 2 KM deep rock strata! An unexplained enigma!
When I looked at this picture above, at the multiple rock strata of the 2 km deep gouge into the Colorado plateau of the Grand Canyon, something suddenly struck me. I began to wonder how all these thick layers of rock were ever laid? At first I only wondered, “How did the geological strata come into existence?” But when it suddenly dawned on me that these strata are not just down in the Grand Canyon, but that there are mile-deep strata existent below our feet worldwide under every continent, I had an epiphany! “Where on earth did all that mile (1.6 Km) deep rock come from? Where did it originate? Did it fall from space? From other planets? Was it dug from the holes the oceans are in? Or what?! It must have come from somewhere! But from where?”

When ‘Startpage-ing’ this enigma, I found very few scientists asking this question, even creationists! Darwinists just skirt around this X-factor by majoring on mere mechanisms of erosion & sedimentation, but no one provided any plausible answer to this gaping hole. Either geologists hardly ever think much about this “minor detail” — ‘the missing rock!’ — or they studiously try to ignore this enormous ‘elephant in the room‘! Let me explain.
The Postulate Uniformitarianism Set as Playing-Field
I discovered though that the basic postulate [foregone conclusion or basic ground-rule laid down in advance] of Darwinism, is its concept of ‘uniformitarianism’. This theory holds that the way everything is occurring today is the way it has always occurred on our planet, which has strong bearing on the rock strata! As one website stated:
“Since no more than an inch of sediment is presently being laid down each year in most non-alluvial areas, therefore no more than this amount could have been deposited yearly in those places in the past.” And… “Since there are thick sections of rock containing fossils, therefore those rocks and their contents must have required millions of years to be laid down.” 
That was the only origin I could find. The opposing –of course anathema– viewpoint and postulate is labeled “catastrophism“, which holds there has been a huge catastrophe in the past —a global flood— which, within one year, laid down all worldwide sedimentary rock strata, while at the same time entombing flora & fauna within them, which under immediate pressure became instant fossils.
Darwinism –fundamentally an anti-Flood thesis — by its very nature of course rejects catastrophism off hand! Nevertheless, because uniformitarianism by its very definition, could never explain the instant simultaneous death of the dinosaurs, they were forced to come up with an alternative solution, a compromise for that massive extinction without getting too catastrophic, as that would also open the door for the undesired worldwide Deluge! That wouldn’t do, of course. [photo: Dino footprint tracks fleeing the flood?]
A ‘small’ exception to their own rule
The observed mass extinction of dinosaurs (actually of all animals and humans!) has no explanation through uniformitarianism (what a word!), so they had to make a “small” dispensation of grace, just a tiny exception to their postulated theory, that, yes, there was just ONE small, little catastrophe that selectively only wiped out the dinosaurs! Not man, obviously!
Otherwise, the dinosaurs were wiped out by this other much more fitting catastrophe, the one they don’t like (for some reason), that global Deluge documented in over 500 universal “man & family survived on a boat with animals” flood accounts from every tribe and ethnic group under the sun, carved in four Sumerian & Babylonian tablets, penned in ancient Hindu, Mayan, Chinese writings, and inked in Qur’an and Bible, all of which they naturally denounce as “myths!” Why? “Because they are not scientific!” (Hello?)
Their “little” catastrophe — with no equivocal “myths”, legends, historic documentary evidence to support it whatsoever– in their minds doesn’t seem contradictory to their postulated paradigm! “Ah, It was just one little uniformitarian asteroid hitting earth, merely big enough to selectively wipe out all the dinosaurs worldwide, (before Man had even evolved!) merely leaving a tiny iridium ring in the Caribbean.” Peanuts!
Apart from their “one little asteroid” they proffer no other major catastrophes, like “millions of exploding volcanoes” or something, to account for the depositing of all those mile-deep trillions of tons of globally deposited rocks! — Friggin Incredible!
Yes, there were some “alluvial river and sea deposits“, plus the “inch of non-alluvial deposits each year“, but hey, one yearly inch can get pretty high when we postulate billions of years as well! Voila! That’s how it surely happened.
But where DID all these layers come from?
If it came from space, there must have been waves of millions of asteroids, many more than that Caribbean one. But that wouldn’t jive with uniformitarianism, so erase erase!
Maybe it wasn’t even an inch deposit per year–as some figured–maybe it was only 10 MM per year! But “time… is on our side“, because… the Earth is postulated by them to have come into existence approximately 4,6 billion or 4,600 million years ago, as those very layers whisper to them, having all the evolved fossils in them, without any missing links though!
But that just confirms to them how long it has actually been, because the missing links were all in the earliest strata which don’t exist anymore, just as “we don’t come from monkeys, as both monkeys and we come from primates long ago” which are also missing. I think that’s how the narrative runs. Correct me if I’m wrong.
Like Lucy! Lucy is really an exception, but then they only found some of her bones scattered over a square kilometer or so. An exception, because she is supposedly kind of close to the primates, which are the missing links! So, we shouldn’t complain that we found only a few bones of Lucy, as she is actually also “missing” and “postulated” as such, and we should actually be really happy that we at least have something of her at all.
Latest news though is as follows:
“We are dealing with the oldest respectable hominid fossil ever found up to that time. The fossil represents a part of the anatomy where it is relatively easy to discriminate between humans and the other primates, both living and fossil. The appropriate diagnostic tools have been used to evaluate the fossil. The results show unequivocally…that the fossil is indistinguishable from modern humans, not just fossil humans. Yet in their original report Patterson and Howells go against their own empirical evidence and suggest that the fossil represents Australopithecus africanus.” – From Lubenow’s Bones of Contention:
Therefore, those who have analysed the data have concluded that the Lucy fossils are in fact human and not merely humanoid. There goes another postulate.
And so it came to pass that I understood that Darwinian (or rather Lyellian) geologists believe that the mile deep geological strata were gradually deposited over billions of years, at a rate of an inch or some millimeters per year, as uniformitarians explain:
“Since no more than an inch or so of sediment is presently being laid down each year, in most non-alluvial areas, therefore no more than this amount could have been deposited yearly in those places in the past.”
“No more than a non-alluvial inch per year?”
But lets just assume that this “yearly global inch” is true, the question still remains, “Where did that world-wide inch of soil come from? If that’s really the case, how did that materialise? One inch per year laid down without floods..globally? Or even, as most of them believe, with and by water-laid sedimentation? From where, pray tell?
For do you realise how much ONE inch per year amounts to globally? Earth’s 149 million km2 land-surface times one inch makes for 3,784,600,000,000 m3 which equals 3,784,600,000 cubic kilometers! That is three trillion, 784 million, 600 hundred thousand cubic kilometers every year! That is a lot of soil! That sure would make headline news!
I personally didn’t see our local park develop an inch of dirt elevation last year, let alone all of Taipei, nor one foot in 12 years, except some parts where workmen deposited some dirt, but it had no fossils in it and they dug that dirt from some other hole. I mean, we’re talking trillions of tons of sediments here! Even if it did take a lo-o-ong time, where did all that sand, pebbles, rocks, boulders, mixed inside those rock strata originate from, if deposited inch by yearly inch?
Another related question is: If it came from an inch per year, how come the strata consist of all different kinds of rock? Did it rain granite for 120 years, then 95 inches or years of sandstone, and then did it rain 80 inches of vegetation for 80 years to create a coal layer?
Besides, it would have to be 10 x 80= 800 inches, or 800 years!, as the original plant matter gets compacted to a tenth of its original size into coal! So how on earth did that 20 meter vegetation mat get to be fossilised before it decomposed into compost slime, those first 799 years without the required pressure of the missing rock layer on top? How does that make any sense?
What caused this weird stratification of all these different types of rock? Climate change? Wow! That would have asked for some radical climate-change indeed! Those coal-seams were definitely carbon-driven, but “no footprints!” Not too sure if it was “anthropogenic.” 🙂
Plus–and this is a much tougher question–where did all the fossils inside those yearly inch-by-inch layers come from? How could plants, fish, worms, and trilobites, ever have been preserved under the mere pressure of just one yearly inch of dirt, if it took so long? They would have decayed into slime or dust long before there was enough inches of dirt and pressure to actually fossilise them! A fish fossilised by a landslide! Yes!I could believe that.
Those are all quite devastating notions, if you ask me! But sad-to-say most people don’t ask questions! They just swallow all the propaganda, hook line and sinker. Even most “intellectuals!”
A geologist friend recently intimated the following to me, discussing this theme:
“Honestly, modern geologists mostly don’t care. They have work to do, money to make, and theory doesn’t change the fact that they have a family to feed. The people that make a difference are those in the high intellectual circles. Many geologists that I know can be moved to agree with a young earth but they have no power to change anything!”
The Grand Canyon reveals layer upon layer of rock to a depth of 6,000 feet. (2 KM) So that would make 6000 x 12 inches = 72,000 inches divided by 1 or 2, accounts for at least 72.000 to 36.000 years, to form the height of the Grand Canyon.
Question remains; Where did a one inch deposit come from in such relatively short time, plus all fossils inside, especially if considered non-alluvial!? Those 36-72.000 years must have been quite catastrophic, yet that is not allowed. And what happened during the other millions/billions of years. Did it stop raining dirt?
Rock From Space, Volcanoes, Asteroids?
Do they figure that all those trillions cubic kilometers rock rained from erupting volcanoes or space dust or something? They did state, that “space dust” adds very little to the level of the earth’s present layer, so I guess they mainly count on volcanoes spewing dirt and spreading it equally high worldwide! Because when you look at the Grand Canyon layers… or strata anywhere, they all look pretty equal to me, pretty evenly thick. So how did all those billions of tons of dirt get deposited so equally and did it actually come from volcanoes in their minds!?
Just in these last 2000 years Naples’ volcano Vesuvius produced perhaps only 10-20 meters dirt directly around Vesuvius, like Pompeii. But the rest of the Napoli area hardly rose any at all. Same story in 1890 when Krakatoa island blew sky high in Indonesia!
Only places like Hawaii, Iceland and other highly active volcanic areas, provide enough lava for surrounding areas to rise substantially, but also not wider than the volcanic islands themselves. And these deposits are always mostly ash & pumice from lava-streams, and they are burning hot, so forget any animal fossils!
It still leaves that nagging yet very important question: “Where did the worldwide giga tons of fossil-containing rock come from, if not from volcanic eruptions?” And in all such different constitutions as well: limestone, sandstone, granite, etc. How did it ever rain granite?
As fossils are found in almost all strata, obviously these must have been deposited by some other kind of depositing medium than volcanic eruptions, because the kind of volcanic eruptions that could perhaps produce equal level global deposits of dirt, must have been super-catastrophic global events, the kind that would have blocked out the sun and prevented life from continuing on Earth, far more devastating than their postulated comet-strike that “wiped out most of the dinosaurs”, which deposited “only a thin layer of iridium” and some other stuff in the Caribbean. So back to square one! Where DID the fossil-laden rock come from?
The fossil record purportedly contains a record of all the billions of years of life on earth. If it takes “100 million years” for an invertebrate to evolve through transitional forms into a fish, the fossil strata should show vast numbers of the in-between forms. But they never do! Scientists discuss these facts among themselves; they have a responsibility to tell them to the public, and where the dirt came from.
I’ll put it to you. IF… there had been no Bible and no resulting religion of Love cramping humanity’s selfish style, scientists would have had no problem whatsoever with a universal catastrophic flood theory! I’ll tell you, they would have come up with it themselves, because the facts on the ground fit that scenario as-a-glove, far better than the “inch-of-space-dust over millions of years” fallacy!
Oh, I realise that the Geologists (elite geological theorists) mainly count on water-laid sediments to have formed the strata, but that still does not answer the question, because of the sheer volume of rock strata! They bank on small local floodings and rivers eroding the mountains, as illustrated in their neat little animated gif here, but that could never do the trick nor account for the trillions of cubic miles of rock below our feet. We’re talking a mile thick shell below our feet that used to be above ground level! For that migration of stuff, nature needs a huge kinetic machine or mechanism to cause such horizontally even layers as observed! Forget local floods!
The ‘Embarrassing’ Founder of Geology
The father of modern geology was in fact a Bible- and Flood-believing Christian; Nicolaus Steno (1631–1686). Evolutionist geologists only care to mention that he is the Father of Geology, but don’t harp on what he believed of course! Steno’s geologic history of Tuscany—considered the first geologic history ever developed, described the process of strata forming in Tuscany Italy as follows:
“And the form of these strata bears witness to the presence of a fluid, while the substance bears witness to the absence of heterogeneous bodies. But the similarity of matter and form in the strata of mountains which are different and distant from each other, proves that the fluid was universal.“
“During Creation Week the strata were deposited horizontally. Huge cavities were eaten out as the water receded, which collapsed the strata and formed valleys and mountains. Noah’s Flood deposited new strata which were also undermined as the water receded, to collapse and form the present landscape.”
I think the Father of (true) Geology had the right idea where the giga-tons of rock came from, and where the huge holes and disruptions in these same geological strata, like the 2 KM deep gouge of the Grand Canyon HOLE in the flat earth of Nevada and Colorado, and like all the break-offs in all the worldwide plateaus that suddenly stop high in mid air, originated.
I postulate based on the evidence that there was a catastrophic global flood once upon a recent time, and that that’s where all the giga-tons of sediment deposits worldwide came from. From a devastating global deluge! If you dare to think for yourself, what do you think?
“Leftovers from a crash with the moon that gouged out the Pacific ocean!” Oh really? that sounds more far out then a global Flood!
Do you now begin to understand why mainstream geologists evade this subject, this nagging question? Because trying to answer it would lead to such a massive construct, fabrication, or fake theory, that the make-believe of it would stick out like a sore stinking thumb! It would cause many more people to lose even more faith in the long crumbling Darwinian paradigm.
And that, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, the powers-that-be will not stand for! They will not allow their prized historical mass-media victory over, and proud conquest of billions of human minds to fail! That’s why they keep on drilling this meme hammering it in with every damn “nature & science” documentary, and why they stuff it down our throats on the front pages of their hundreds of thousands of global glossy multi-lingual magazines!

These videos below are the result of the most revolutionary geology paper EVER published by Dr. G. Berthault, based on actual hydrolic experiments of the University of Colorado, yet fully ignored by Geologic Academia. I wonder why! Or perhaps not. As one geologist recently told me:
A Strange Anomaly
This here artifact in East Turkey happens to be the exact same length as Noah’s ark description in the Book of Genesis, and it is situated in the mountains of Ararat, the exact same place where it landed according to Moses, the Quran, Josephus, and other Middle Eastern historians like Berosus.
If these are not the remains of Noah’s boat, there must have been some other guy who built another same-size old boat that got petrified in the mountains of Ararat! We wish you great success in doing your own research in your life-quest for truth, while the internet is still free and fair. But don’t hold your breath too long. They are working on stifling all dissent, and seeing most people are born media-followers, it won’t be long! Farewell! — Lu.

I know that dirt blows around, and gathers more and better in valleys than on hilltops. Here in Taiwan we get dust storm dust films from the Gobi desert, but it doesn’t fossilise anything. Also in archeology artifacts are discovered in graves, and under ruins. Deeper layers under present layers, as foundations of houses sink in the ground, and the ruins get built over and upon. Also things get buried under rotten plants, humus, composting organic material, BUT it doesn’t lead to fossilisation. Under such dirt it will rot with the compost or under the sand of the Sahara desert it will dry up and fall apart into its components.
And so….? It doesn’t explain where all the fat thick strata with fossils in it, as in the top picture, came from. Did the fossils blow in with the wind as well? Or did the fossils also fall down with the space dust from space? How much space-dust and fossils fell down last year in YOUR neighbourhood or frontyard?
Here is a link to an official university’s physics undergraduate’s answer to the question. He also sees dirt coming from space, rivers, the wind, yet it doesn’t explain how the uniform thick fat strata worldwide of 2 to 10 KM deep were formed fast enough to cause fossilisation instead of decay! Can you imagine a dead fish being covered with some river (alluvial) deposits and then turn into a fossil under it, instead of a decomposing fish? Or a mammoth covered with a meter (lets be liberal) of volcano deposit and turn into a fossil? Or even a beaver? It doesn’t hold water!
