Thin layer of silt proves flood

    The flood found in the Bible has evidence in the gelogic record. There is a thin layer of silt corresponding to the flood found in the Bible in the Mideast part of the world.

    The evidence for a global flood is overwhelming. You will not convince a sceptic. They have an answer for everything. The fake evidence industry has not helped (fake ark sightings and so on). The Grand Canyon is one of the best arguments for the global flood. Don't expect doubters to agree with it.

    Yes the Global flood in the bible can be clearly seen in the sedimentary, that is water laid down rocks that cover the earth.
    As the hydrology departments around the world admit, if the sea beds were pulled up and the mountain ranges pushed down there is sufficient water in the sea to totally submerge the earth to at least a mile.
    The evidence for a global flood is very, very clear if one is prepared to admit the bible is right.

    No it doesn't.

    Might be true, probably isn't. Doesn't matter though, because the silt would have to be global for proof of a global flood.

    It has the least whelming evidence of any of the Creation stuff. There's literally more evidence of the gingerbread house that the witch lived in.

    Yes, data and evidence.

    Lol, how do you tell the difference?
    Why would anyone agree with anything that incorrect?

    No it can't.

    Said process would release enough energy to cook all living things on the planet.

    No, it isn't.

    If you believe in a literal global flood, you have to argue that the geological record has been altered in some way, as it does not show any such thing.

    As for a catastrophic local flood, there is quite a lot of evidence for that.

    Yes. And people were not global at the time so "The whole world" was not that big of an area. Especially since the ark had no sail or motors, like a carnival cruise ship, the people who lived to tell the story were telling it from the perspective of a local passenger.

    6So it came to pass, at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made. 7Then he sent out a raven, which kept going to and fro until the waters had dried up from the earth. 8He also sent out from himself a dove, to see if the waters had receded from the face of the ground. 9But the dove found no resting place for the sole of her foot, and she returned into the ark to him, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth. So he put out his hand and took her, and drew her into the ark to himself. 10And he waited yet another seven days, and again he sent the dove out from the ark. 11Then the dove came to him in the evening, and behold, a freshly plucked olive leaf was in her mouth; and Noah knew that the waters had receded from the earth. 12So he waited yet another seven days and sent out the dove, which did not return again to him anymore.

    The rest of your lengthy post was spot on, but you didn't think this extract through. The Tigris-Euphrates valley is a flood plain. The clue is in the adjective. Flooding was regular, large floods occasional and catastrophic floods virtually guaranteed to occur at least once in a millennium.

    There is a specific, extensive layer that has been recognised. Some workers have tried to tie this to Biblical flood, but the correlation is generally dismissed. I have read a couple of papers on it, but I don't seem to have kept copies. So, GCL's claim is true, inasmuch as the argument has been made, just not well enough to convince the majority of experts.

    There are layers of flood silt in Mesopotamia from various spring flooding episodes. The Tigris and Euphrates Rivers meandered back and forth through the millennia shifting course. The mountains at their sources had snow pack that melted in the spring. Turkey has built dams reducing the river outflow to Iraq.

    Thin layer of silt.

    96 feet of sandstone.

    It's almost as though the answer was predetermined, and the evidence doesn't matter.

    Only if one has zero understanding of geology and physics, sure.

    I'd just like to know that if creationist flood geology is actually correct, why can't creationists agree on which layers are the result of the global flood?

    This seems to be a common theme in science-denialism.

    Sorry, but it is not. One observed feature refutes flood believers claims:

    Embedded meanders.

    No, that is not evidence. That is an ad hoc explanation that is not supported by closer scrutiny of the sedimentary layers.

    Thank you for sharing evidence which testifies for the truth of the Buddhist scriptures, which speak of global floods! "When the world is destroyed by water, the world of the Subhakinhas forms the limit to which the water rises. PSA.256." ^_^
