A: In many mountainous areas, rock layers thousands of feet thick have been bent and folded without fracturing. How can that happen if they were laid down separately over hundreds of millions of years and already hardened?
Hardened rock layers are brittle. Try bending a slab of concrete sometime to see what happens! But if concrete is still wet, it can easily be shaped and molded before the cement sets. The same principle applies to sedimentary rock layers. They can be bent and folded soon after the sediment is deposited, before the natural cements have a chance to bind the particles together into hard, brittle rocks.
The region around Grand Canyon is a great example showing how most of the earth’s fossil-bearing layers were laid down quickly and many were folded while still wet.
See photos and learn more about folded rock layers and how they confirm the biblical Flood account and a young earth.
Dig deeper into the history of Grand Canyon. In this fascinating presentation, geologist Dr. Andrew Snelling utilizes diagrams, beautiful photographs, and first-hand experience to show how this canyon bears testimony to rapid erosion as a result of the waters left behind by the global Flood.
