As you probably already know I am a christian for about 27 years now. Yes the geologic column does indeed contain billions of fossils, but the sediments, folding, faulting, metamorphoses of rock, igneous intrusions etc is not evidence for a single event. I have studied geology at college level and have done field work. What was evident was differing environments displayed by the type of rock, fossils indicating what life was about in those times and of course we had ,extinction events'. On comes to mind near Gloucester, England was the rhaetic bone beds. I was there with my fellow college students and on one layer only was a mass of fossils then covered up by more sediment containing hardly any fossils above it. Here is one paper I found just by doing a google search while typing this:
But a lot of recent creationist thinking is derived from having to believe in a literal translation of Genesis 1. While it is still very important to believe in a creator God which he is, can it be that recent creationists are trying to make geolocical science false?
