And the ages assigned to the layers were derived from long age evolutionary assumptions – not from the scientific facts, – as the column was established long before we even had radiometric dating.
The resulting rock strata may harbor fossils from a particular habitat area or ecosystem, but do not represent a particular age or era.
And today we know through lab experiments and natural disasters (such as the eruption of Mt. Helens) that major layering of rock strata can happen catastrophically in a short period of time.
Young-earth creation geologists have long held that most sedimentary strata resulted from waterborne deposits during Noah’s Flood.
