Young Geologic Column

The geologic column (representing all the earth’s observed sedimentary rock) in classical geology represents hundreds of millions of years of evolutionary history. Evidence that this column formed rapidly rather than over millions of years is therefore evidence for a young geologic column and a young earth.

Absence of meteorites in the geologic column.

“Counting the number of asteroids we see in the sky suggests that over the past 250 million years, Earth should have been hit around 440 times by asteroids larger than one kilometre across. But scientists have found only 38 large impact craters from this period.” New Scientist December 02

Polystrate fossils – are fossils which cross multiple geologic layers which were supposedly laid down millions of years apart. Trees trunks are frequently found to cross several layers and even through coal beds showing that these layers formed rapidly. Some polystrate trees are even found upside down providing obvious testiment to catastrophic upheaval.


Rapid Coal Formation – It has been claimed that coal takes millions of years to form, however, in recent laboratory experiments by Dr. George R. Hill and Dr. Don C. Adams at the University of Utah it has been shown that plant matter can be turned into coal in a matter of hours.

GEORGE R. HILL Dean of College of Mines & Mineral Industries, “A rather startling and serendipitous discovery resulted….These observations suggest that in their formation, high rank coals,….were probably subjected to high temperature at some stage in their history. A possible mechanism for formation of these high rank coals could have been a short time, rapid heating event.” [Six Hours], Chemtech, May, 1972, p. 292-296.


Turbidites are evidence of rapid strata formation. These sedimentary rocks result from sediments of turbidity currents and are believed to comprise as much as 50% of the geological column, and approximately 30 of the deposits visible in the Grand Canyon.


Ripple marks, rain drops, and animal tracks in sedimentary rocks. This implies very rapid burial and hardening because these fragile features could not survive even trivial erosion. –Morris, J. D. 1994. The Young Earth. Master Books. pp. 94-96.


Regional deposition. Current known geologic processes don’t account for regional deposits (covering multiple U.S. states, for example). This applies to types of rocks, as well as coal and oil reserves.


Deformation of strata implies it was soft when deformed and hadn’t hardened into rock. –Morris, J. D. 1994. The Young Earth. Master Books. pp. 106-109.


Absence of bioturbation in the geologic column. Biological activity soon disturbs sedimentary deposits formed by modern catastrophes (hurricanes, floods) but is not evidenced in the geologic column. This implies that the geologic column was buried very deeply very rapidly. –Morris, J. D. 1994. The Young Earth. Master Books. pp. 96-97.


Lack of recognizable soil layers in the geologic column. Soil material is seldom found in the geologic column. One would think that the earth had soil layers in the past, and if it was slowly buried, some would be preserved. –Morris, J. D. 1994. The Young Earth. Master Books. pp. 97-98.


Undisturbed bedding planes. Different geologic rock layers often show sharp, knife-edge breaks between layers, with no evidence of erosion between. This is not realistic if the layers formed over long periods of time.

–Morris, J. D. 1994. The Young Earth. Master Books. pp. 98-100.


Clastic dikes: Clastic dikes are formed from soft sand squeezed up through newer layers of rock. This implies that the sandy older (lower) layer was still soft enough to squeeze sand up (like squeezing a toothpaste tube) through the younger upper layers. –Morris, J. D. 1994. The Young Earth. Master Books. pp. 109-112.


Limited Extent of Unconformities. Much of the geologic column is continuous in its deposition, with no evidence of erosion between layers. This indicates that the process took only a very short time. –Morris, J. D. 1994. The Young Earth. Master Books. pp. 103-105.
