Ya, like when the geologists described the Mount St. Helens eruption as causing 10,000 years of geologic action in one day. Just another set of unproven theories.
No, actually, it's not like that at all. Granted, I'm unsure what nonsense you're trying to peddle, but whatever it is it's clearly enough nothing like what I posted.
It occurred to me that the nonsense you're trying to peddle is the idea that geologic events which are determined to have taken thousands or millions of years to unfold may instead have occurred quite swiftly, by a single volcanic eruption or some other similarly brief occurrence.
Let me briefly explain why this is idiotic.
I don't have the original quotes of course, assuming that they exist, but I can readily deduce that if a geologist described the Mount St. Helens eruption as causing 10,000 years of geologic action in one day then what the geologist was quite obviously saying is that in the absence of a volcanic eruption this 'geologic action' would take 10,000 years to occur (actually, it'd take far longer than that even to achieve the same results via sedimentation and erosion).
Even a reasonably bright fifth grade student could probably learn the same in his science class. Volcanic action achieves very swiftly what takes eons to achieve by virtually any other means. That is well known, and readily evidenced in the geologic record, where it's quite easy to distinguish whether such effects were caused very gradually by erosion/sedimentation or very swiftly by volcanic/seismic action.
Of course, to reiterate, I don't have the original quotes, but it's easy enough to deduce what was meant simply because if the geologist meant it in the way that seems to be implied then said geologist should never have received a degree.
