Evidence of a Flood
In this gallery, we see evidence for flood deposition and rapid erosion in the geological topography. There are erosional features that can only have been produced by rapid water erosion. There are deposition features which show that the sediments were all water-borne. The nature of the depositions, their grading, and the unconformities therein are consistent with flood deposition but not with standard geological paradigms.
Fossil ammonites buried in a mass grave. Only catastrophoc burial can account for such a large-scale burial.
These flat coal seams are readily explained by catastrophism, but impossible to explain by forest growth situations as geologists would have it.
A piece of wood in Slovenia. Notice that half of it has turned to coal, while the other half is still wooden. These deposits are tertiary deposits and standard geological paradigms would place them anywhere up to 40 million years old, yet this kind of coalification is even found in fence posts showing that it doesn't take millions of years to achieve this kind of coalification.

This segment, written by C.R. Twidale in the American Journal of Science, states that there are serious problems with scientific theories of erosion and landscape development.
White Cliffs of Dover These deposits are marine deposits and they are right on the top of this landscape, so this entire continent must have been underwater very recently for these to have formed. CC Sharealike Harvey Barrison on Flickr https://www.flickr.com/photos/hbarrison/4930390553
Here we see coal seams embedded in the rock formations. Notice how they are perfectly flat, which does not conform to scientific thinking. Forests grow uphill and downhill, not absolutely flat. So these cannot be produced by forest situations but by washed in debris. Copyright Walter Veith / Amazing Discoveries
Fossilized giant bison, found in the La Brea Tar Pits in California. Most of these fossils are just larger examples of present-day similar creatures. This is not evolution in progress, but regression in progress.
A fossil displayed in the British Museum of Natural History. The description reads: Mammal graveyard; the fossilized remains of an antelope, gazelle, horse and carnivore are preserved in this slab. The fossils are surrounded by flood-plain deposits, suggesting that the animals were swept together by torrential floods. There is no weathering and little damage to the fossils, so they must have been buried quickly. If even the British Museum to this caption, why is it that they ignore the possibility of a universal flood?

The Geological Column with fossil assemblage. The fossil sequence is standardly explained as evolution in time, but all the creatures are fully formed, highly complex creatures and in terms of their life processes, have all the complexity of any creature living today. The assemblage and order can other explanations such as ecological zonation, flotation, etc.
The La Brea Tar Pits in California. The fact that they are still bubbling means that the process of decay is not even completed, yet we are told these are millions of years old.

Malachite crystals which were formed rapidly. These authentic semi-precious stones were bought from dealers in the Congo who obviously found a way of growing them rapidly in the malachite mines by allowing the seepage to crystallize on copper wires. Note the copper wires in the broken fingers of the crystals. Formations of crystals, stone or fossils can thus be very rapid and does not require millions of years. Reports of fossilization and rapid rock formation are well known, with fossil hats having formed in mines and ships bells and bottles being encased in solid rock.
Petrified logs from the Mt. St. Helens eruptions float upright, providing a model for the deposition of the petrified forests of the world. If a further turbidite (underwater mud flow) were to cover these trees, they would be buried in the upright position as are the petrified forest trees in Yellowstone National Park. They would also be orientated in the direction of stream flow because tree trunks are not perfectly round.

An upright petrified tree. Note that there are no roots or branches, and it stretches through various levels of strata. Copyright Walter Veith / Amazing Discoveries
Petrified upright tree in Yellowstone Park, USA. These trees have long been used as an example of stable periods of growth, since they appear to be in a position of growth. However, they are now known to have been washed into position by flooding since they are orientated in the direction of stream flow. Also they have no intact roots and the larger ones have no branches even when deeply buried showing that they were catastrophically transported from elsewhere and buried upright.

A petrified tree in the Petrified Forest in Namibia. The trees are stream orientated, supporting the catastrophic flood model. Similarly to other areas, the trees are stripped of their bark even when deeply buried and have no branches. Evolution explains these petrified trees as representing forest situations, but the orientation that they are water/stream depositions. This is only consistent with a universal flood.

A perfectly preserved fossil fish In order for this to have happened, there must have been rapid burial so that all decay was halted instantly. Fish decay very rapidly after death, and no such fossilization is possible without catastrophic burial.

A petrified log in Namibia. Note that the bark is stripped and the roots are ripped off. Moreover these logs lie orientated in direction of stream flow. This is a feature common to petrified forests all over the world showing that the flood conditions were universal. Copyright Walter Veith / Amazing Discoveries
Fossil sea urchins, starfish and sea lilies in a mass grave (British National Museum of Natural History.) The description given to this display states that these creatures were "buried very rapidly retaining their spines." This is consistent with the universal flood model.

Chalk deposits (radiolaria) in brown coal mines in Slovenia. These brown coal deposits were supposedly formed in normal forest situations, however these white chalk deposits in the same layers belie that assumption. They must have formed underwater because radiolarians are marine organisms and don't belong in forests. Copyright Walter Veith / Amazing Discoveries
This school of fish is on display in the British Museum of Natural History, where the explanation is given that they were trapped in a lake and dried out. However, no modern counterpart exists since the fish would decay or be eaten by scavengers. It is more likely that they were buried alive by mudflows during the flood.

All glaciers in the world are receding rapidly. In fact, so rapidly that they contradict the standard models of long ice ages which are based on linear regression rather than exponential regression. This glacier is the largest glacier in Europe situated in Iceland. Copyright Walter Veith / Amazing Discoveries
This giant washout and canyon in Iceland was produced in the glacial flood of 1996, so its features would normally be attributed to millions of years of erosion. Copyright Walter Veith / Amazing Discoveries
The Athabasca Glacier is receding at a rate that belies the theory of ice ages taking place over thousands of years. The rate at which it recedes indicates that the ice age could have taken place in less than a millennium. Copyright Walter Veith / Amazing Discoveries
The 'Town Hall Formation', Cederberg in South Africa. The most likely explanation is that rapidly flowing water undercut the massive deposits, as the were uplifted after the flood. The strata must have been soft and the water must have drained into the newly forming basin before the entire structure collapsed, leaving it standing on pillars. The tunnel formation also shows the direction of stream flow. Copyright Walter Veith / Amazing Discoveries
Markers of glacial recession show that it is much more rapid than originally thought and the time required for an Ice Age may be centuries away rather than thousands of years. The time for glacial recession is much shorter than originally postulated. Copyright Walter Veith / Amazing Discoveries
Floods caused by the eruption of Mt. St. Helens tore trees from the ground, and gathered them into lakes after the second eruption. If there had been a further mud flow, these logs would have been buried in the direction of stream flow as are the horizontal logs in petrified forests.
Sheets of volcanic material in Washington State, USA. Evidence for volcanism in the form of lava is largely a surface phenomenon which shows that it is a relatively young occurrence. Yet volcanism should have theoretically been a part of the earth's formative cycle since its inception. Volcanism in lower geological strata is in the form of 'brecsia' which means that it is water deposition again consistent with the universal flood. Copyright Walter Veith / Amazing Discoveries
A donga (rapid water erosion from rainstorms). This feature formed after one rainstorm and provides a mini-scale for the canyons of the world. Even the topographical features resemble on a small-scale those found in the larger canyons of the world. Copyright Walter Veith / Amazing Discoveries
If layers of strata were deposited rapidly, then this would suggest that they were still soft when uplifted to form continents. During continent and mountain up-lift, these layers would fold because they had not yet turned to rock. This folding can be seen here, in the Alps.
In the center of this picture is an arch. Features like this can best be explained by catastrophic formation, subsequent hardening, and removal of debris by water since natural erosional features would not work from the bottom up but from the top down. Copyright Walter Veith / Amazing Discoveries
Beartooth Butte matches the same layers located much lower down in Bighorn Basin. How could the solid rock above the Precambrian rock warp upward during the upthrust if in fact it was solid—taking millions of years to form? A more logical explanation seems to be that the layers were not solid and in fact were recently and rapidly formed just before a very rapid upthrust of the Precambrian under the Beartooth Butte location. The water, which laid down these sedimentary layers, rapidly rushed off of the upthrusted area. This rapid runoff of water quickly eroded the area leaving only Beartooth Butte standing to dry as the water receded. Read the whole article by Sean Pitman, MD.
This is Beartooth Butte which sites elevated on top of a mountain ridge in Wyoming, above its associated layers. How was it raised up to this height according to standard geological thinking? It must have been thrusted, moved uphill over eons of time without leaving a trace of any such movement. The surrounding layers were apparently weathered away over time, leaving Beartooth Butte as a lone formation. But another explanation is more plausible as shown in the next diagram.
A clastic intrusion from the Kodachrome basin, USA. Mingling of layers can be seen which is further confirmation of soft layers.
A clastic intrusion from the Kodachrome basin, USA. These pillars of stone were thrust up through the underlying strata and are evidence that all the layers must have been soft mud of liquid consistency as would be expected in flood deposits.

Erosion relics in the USA indicate rapid erosion of the strata between them. These 2 pillar-like structures survived the erosion of all the strata in between? Impossible. Only a rapid washout can leave such relics as can be found in modern catastrophic flood washouts. The water is gone before all the material is removed. Copyright Walter Veith and Amazing Discoveries
The Fish River in Namibia shows evidence of rapid washout which shows that the conditions were universal. Copyright Walter Veith and Amazing Discoveries
The top layer is subject to erosion and shows it being very uneven and worn. The layers underneath have flat surface contacts and were therefore not subject to erosion. These are turbidites rapidly deposited on top of one another. In the picture on the right, we see evidence of massive water erosion but before the deposit could be washed away, the water subsided—typical of a flood deposit. Copyright Walter Veith and Amazing Discoveries
This rock formation again shows that the top layer exposed to erosions does not look like the middle or lower layers which have flat contacts and were therefore never exposed to erosion, or else they would look like the top layer. The idea that the flat contact layers within formations were ever once the surface of the earth for millions of years is completely absurd. Copyright Walter Veith and Amazing Discoveries
The Goosenecks in the Colorado River show evidence of rapid washout in view of the V-shape even around bends where under standard deposition you would have undercut on one side and deposition on the other, so this can only be rapid washout. Copyright Walter Veith and Amazing Discoveries
A rock formation from the Cedarberg mountain range in South Africa. Again we see erosional features on the top layer but only flat contact layers showing that there was no erosion on the lower layers, disputing the theory that those layers were once the surface of the earth.

Another unconformity between a shale and a sandstone with no evidence whatsoever of any layer in between. Therefore, the time in question does not exist. Copyright Walter Veith and Amazing Discoveries
These incredibly flat contacts are all in areas of unconformities (assume layers missing) leaving no evidence of having been eliminated by erosion. Obviously they never existed. Copyright Walter Veith and Amazing Discoveries
The Grand Canyon. Each layer supposedly represents a time when that layer was the surface of the earth. However, there is no evidence of erosion between layers as can be seen by flat contact of layers. Between some layers unconformities exist, meaning some layers are missing, meaning that there is time missing, according to standard geological interpretation. Geologists claim that the layers were eroded away before new layers were deposited, yet there is no evidence of this erosion because the contacts are still absolutely flat.

Monument Valley is again another example of rapid washout of the material. The water was gone before all the material could be eradicated leaving these amazing relics. Copyright Walter Veith / Amazing Discoveries
A load cast and a flame between two layers of strata in the Grand Canyon. Here, material from the bottom layer is whipped into the top layer, suggesting that both layers were soft at the time of formation and is also strong evidence of catastrophic deposition.
A desert dune in USA. Scientists claimed it had always been desert, but after a long period of analysis, they determined that it was formed underwater. The angle of deposition and the grain size proves that these deposits are also underwater deposits and not desert dune systems as previously assumed. In order to have a normal topography, scientists have to assume arid eras in the geological column but modern science belies these theories. Copyright Walter Veith and Amazing Discoveries
The Navaho Twins indicate rapid erosion between the two relics. As in the previous picture, we see the same evidence in a different area. Copyright Walter Veith and Amazing Discoveries
The Grand Canyon. Here we see massive amounts of land and rock have been removed. Did the little Colorado River really carve out this canyon over millions of years, or is there a more sensible explanation? The Grand Canyon runs through an uplifted area which could not have been washed out by the river incrementally because rivers do not run over uplifted areas (ie. uphill), so this was a fast uplift with flood waters rushing through a crack which appeared in the uplift washing out the entire canyon rapidly.

A turbidite in New Zealand. Notice the coarse to fine deposition. The heavier larger material at the base and the finer material on the top. This again is only possible in a rapid water deposition and does not allow for considerable time periods. It is also consistent with the universal flood.

A "water whirl." Water sucked out this unique feature while this rock was still pliable. This could not have happened if the rock was hard or over millions of years. Moreover, the rocks cannot be millions of years old for these features would have been eradicated long ago. Taken at Augrabies Falls, South Africa. Copyright Walter Veith and Amazing Discoveries
A "water whirl." Another example of water suction of soft pliable material. This was found at Augrabies Falls in South Africa. Some people say a stone swirling around in a depression will also create the same feature. This is however not possible since the features do not show any signs of abrasion by stone.

Beautiful erosional features in Bryce Canyon. This is an example of deep channeling by rapid washout and subsequent weathering over time. Copyright Walter Veith and Amazing Discoveries
Here again rapid erosion must have removed all the material surrounding these features in Bryce Canyon. If these were subject to millions of years of erosion, then why were these so stubborn as to refuse to move? Copyright Walter Veith and Amazing Discoveries

The Three Sisters in Karoo, South Africa. The fact that features such as these are on every single continent shows that there was a universal flood. If erosion is constantly happening, these features should also have eroded. Copyright Walter Veith and Amazing Discoveries

If layers of strata were deposited rapidly, then this would suggest that these features were still soft when uplifted to form continents.

Turbidites from Texas, USA. These massive deposits were laid down rapidly and later uplifted when the layers were soft. They could not have formed over millions of years. Copyright Walter Veith / Amazing Discoveries
This sign at the Grand Canyon shows an unconformity, where an entire layer of rock has been completely eroded between two other layers. Since these missing layers occur in other regions in the US and are associated with time, these layers are assumed to have been present here, but since you cannot eradicate time, you have to eradicate the layer by erosion and that without a trace. A better solution to the problem is that the deposits which occur elsewhere indicate that the material which comprises the missing layers was less than in other areas and when deposited just did not reach as far as the Grand Canyon thus leaving a gap.

The Orange River Canyon. Notice the distinct v-shape. V-shapes are indicative of rapid washout particularly if the V-shape is maintained even around corners because slow erosion would deposit material to one side and undercut on the other side, not allowing for a V-shape.
