Canyon making in the blink of an eye!

Evidence pointing toward the “young earth” theory grows every day. I find this fascinating, and a recent article brought it to my attention.

According to evolutionary scientists who are dependent upon the “old earth” theory, geological formations such as the Grand Canyon could never have happened over less than thousands, or millions of years. However, the fact is: that they could.

What was perhaps one of the first major pieces of evidence for this possibility was at the Mount St. Hellens’ eruption, where geological formations thought to have taken thousands of years to form-such as many “varves,” or layers of sediments-were formed right before the eyes of awestruck geologists. [1] In recent times, there is even more geological proof-positive that the earth could be just as old, or rather young, as the Bible says it is.

I am writing this article because of an exiguous event that happened right here in the state of Texas. Beginning yesterday, the public will be able to see it for themselves. As recorded by the Associated Press and published by my local newspaper, a 2002 flood caused a canyon to literally be “formed overnight by flooding” in Canyon Lake, here in the great state of Texas. It formed this beautiful, massive structure of nature:
And its happened before:

“The sudden exposure of such canyons is rare but not unprecedented. Flooding in Iowa in 1993 similarly opened a limestone gorge behind a spillway at Corvalville Lake north of Iowa City, but Devonian Fossil Gorge is narrower and shallower than Canyon Lake Gorge.”[2]

With geological evidence continually pointing out that we might want to rethink the age of various significant geological formations, and even of the earth, experts still don’t want to admit they might be wrong. A smaller version of the article from my local TV news service, KXAN says this:

“The formation of canyons usually takes thousands or even millions of years.”[3]

I really think its nonsense to continue to governmentally endorse the old-earth theory in public schools, even if the experts insist on making absolute statements like:

“It took water around 5 million to 6 million years to carve the crevasse [of the Grand Canyon] that plunges 6,000 feet at its deepest point and stretches 15 miles at its widest.”[2]

But, then again, I’m not an expert. But Dr. Tas Walker is. Check out what he has to say.[1]
