OCEANS , THEY SHOULD BE CHOKED TO OVERFLOWING WITH MUD.... according to the evolutionary worldview .
YOUNGER WORLD , EVIDENCE FOR :
IF THE OCEANS ARE THREE BILLION YEARS OLD THEN AT THE PRESENT RATE OF ROCK AND DIRT EROSION INTO THE OCEANS THEY SHOULD BE CHOKED TO OVERFLOWING WITH MUD :
20 billion tons of rock and dirt are annually eroded from the continents by wind and water erosion . This eroded rock and dirt finds its way into the ......oceans . 1
This results in the rock and dirt accumulating as loose sediment on the hard lava formed rock of the ocean floor . The sedimentation depth for the whole ocean is below 400 meters . 2 Plate tectonic subduction ( the sliding of the sea floor beneath continents ) is responsible for the removal of this sediment from the ocean floor at approximately 1 billion tonnes annually .2 This results in the other 19 billion tons accumulating each year on the ocean floor . Therefore the present amount of sediment would take less than 12 million years to accumulate at the present rates . The problem being is that evolutionary theory states that erosion and plate subduction have been happening since the Oceans came into being , which according to their timeline is three billion years . But the evolutionary timeline if correct would result in the oceans being massively choked with sediment many dozens of kilometers deep . And clearly the oceans are not choked to overflowing with sedimentation .
The present depth of the sediment on the ocean floor clearly demonstrates more support for a young world and the creationist model . Twelve million years is a lot closer to thousands of years than it is to billions of years . The present level of sediment could easily be accounted for during the receding waters of the Genesis flood as the waters ran off the continents . With the remainder accumulating at the present rates over the last four and a half thousand years .
