Except that the THEORY of evolution can’t explain the simplest and most obvious observations, like where is the river delta from all the silt that should be at the outlet of the Colorado river where it empties into the gulf of California after carving out the grand canyon for millions of years?
Evolution does geography?
The Genetics of Plate Tectonics.
Ah Ha! Maybe that’s why the Colorado doesn’t make it to the gulf because it deposited too much silt. Is it even true that he river doesn’t make it to the gulf? Maybe Baja California is the delta!
Until the early 20th century the Colorado River ran free from its headwaters in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado south into Mexico, where it flowed into the Gulf of California. Significant quantities of nourishing silt from throughout the Colorado River Basin were carried downstream, creating the vast Colorado River Delta.From the Grand Canyon River Guides site:
Prior to the construction of major dams along its route, the Colorado River fed one of the largest desert estuaries in the world. Spread across the northernmost end of the Gulf of California, the Colorado River deltas vast riparian, freshwater, brackish, and tidal wetlands once covered 1,930,000 acres (7,810 km²) and supported a large population of plant, bird, and marine life. Because most of the rivers flow reached the delta at that time, its freshwater, silt, and nutrients helped create and sustain a complex system of wetlands that provided feeding and nesting grounds for birds, and spawning habitat for fish and marine mammals. In contrast to the surrounding Sonoran Desert, the Colorado River deltas abundance was striking.
For eons, from its very beginning, the Colorado River dumped its ever present load of silt and soil into the blue waters of the Sea of Cortez. A typical river delta appeared and grew. It grew until it reached the far western shore of the Sea of Cortez, eventually to become the wide, flat, wholly natural dam that exists today blocking off the northern reaches of that ancient sea from the open water to the south.From the Northern Arizona University Department of Geography, Planning & Recreation:
The delta's current bone-dry state represents a stunning transformation of the green landscape travelers and native Indian tribes knew as recently as a half-century ago.So now you know. Can we count on you to drop that particular talking point?
This fan-shaped plain the size of Rhode Island, built over eons from the river's silt, then supported a stunningly diverse array of plants and animals. At the river's mouth on the Gulf of California, the daily churning of the tides blended fresh and salty water and created an important spawning ground for sea creatures ranging from the tiny brown shrimp to the giant totoaba fish prized by anglers.
No, the theory of evolution can't explain that, but a first year geology student could.
The Colorado River originally flowed to the California coast and created the Monterrey submarine canyon. It changed course to the Sea of Cortez rather recently, thanks to the San Andreas fault.
You creationists are really remarkable. You spout off arrogantly on this kind of crap and yet never have any idea what you're talking about.
The Colorado River has a large delta. Where the heck to you people find this crap?
