You gotta read the article before you start arguing with me. P.S. it's NOT from a creationist site. It's from Science Daily.

Thought we’d change the title to what was published instead of, “Think the Grand Canyon *must* have been formed over millions of years? Think again.”

The Washington state scablands were also created in a short time at the end of the last ice age when an enormous volume of water broke through an ice dam.

Gadzooks!

This event seems to support the Grand Canyon section Walt Brown's book.

(The entire book is online)

If these guys want to see big rock sheets and boulders move, then they should consider looking at the Devils River watershed in SW Texas after a 2 inch rain.

“When speculative historical sciences meet reality.”

That’s a meeting that always leaves a mark.

thanks moderator! And I was expecting to be bombarded by the evolutionary, old earth, “we know everything” crowd.

Been awhile since I posted last, what happened to that bunch? Maybe they are asleep at the keyboard, or have evolved into a higher lifeform. ;)

"The Washington state scablands were also created in a short time at the end of the last ice age when an enormous volume of water broke through an ice dam."

The enormous volumes of water are probably correct.

The 'ice dam', however, is purely imaginary.

Note: This is a cut and paste of a drive by insult I just used on another thread. It isn’t original so it has been discounted 30% just to insult you.

“Well, I wouldn’t want your Friday spoiled.
1. You smell like moldy cheese.
2. Flowers wilt when you pass.
3. Children have nightmares about you.
4. Women enter convents rather than date you.
5. Dogs would rather lick cats than be petted by you.
6. You are the only person Mother Teresa wanted to slap.
7. Beggars on the street give you change to go away.
8. The Jehovah’s Witnesses skip your house.
9. Hannibal Lector became a vegetarian because of you
and
10. Al Qaida,the Taliban, CAIR, NAMBLA, the ACLU, PETA, the DNC, and the Canadian Baby Seal Clubbing Association all rejected your membership applications because they thought if they were associated with you, people would hate them.

I got nothing to add to this thread. I was just cruising through looking for news and heard your cry for help.

I’m made that way. I was there for you. Have a fun Friday anyway!
Irish Catholic :-)”

Cool post, by the way. I have missed the Church of Evolution myself lately. They must be holding bake sales for their summer field trip to the Darwin Museum. That or they are busy kicking the snot out of an Intelligent Design scientist they jumped in the parking garage of the Smithsonian.

The canyon that was carved in three days:

Fossils exposed
Some of the canyon's rocks are punched with holes like Swiss cheese, and the fossils of worms and other ancient wildlife are everywhere. The rocks, typical of the limestone buried throughout central Texas, date back "111 million years, plus or minus a few hundred thousand years," Ward said.

Six three-toed dinosaur footprints offer evidence of a two-legged carnivore strolling along the water. The footprints were temporarily covered with sand to protect them as workers reinforced the spillway, but they'll be uncovered again eventually, Rhoad said.

That’s pretty impressive.

In the span of six weeks, the power of the water chiseled out 21 feet of BEDROCK for a distance of more than 2 kilometers.

One can easily ask, what COULD it (that same power) do in a period of seven to ten months - the approximate length of time of Noah’s flood.

More so than your invisible friend in the sky?

There are two obvious features of the Grand Canyon that show it couldn't have been formed by a flood. Its large scale dendritic structure, and its meandering path.

Contrast this with the Scablands of the Spokane Flood, which has a very different aspect.

Well, event like this happen in minutes...

The question is not one of water carving bedrock - it clearly happens. My question in this case would be, what is the bedrock? Judging from the photograph, I'd say limestone, a water soluble rock. If you want to know how a valley is formed, you don't just look at the valley. You also look at the sediments that were removed.
