Did you know sediments a mile deep have been removed from above the rim of Grand Canyon or that National Geographic admitted “Geologists now think Grand Canyon grew in quick spurts from massive flooding…”
The missing layers are picked up in the Grand Staircase, which includes the soaring cliffs of Bryce and Zion. Bryce forms the top of the Staircase, where the massive erosion event ended, leaving spires and arches in the multi-colored limestones. Zion’s lofty sandstone cliffs and canyons, adorned in pink and red hues, form the middle of the Staircase.
In 2005, National Geographic spilled the beans, admitting: “For a long time scientists believed that Grand Canyon was carved out slowly over millions of years …But new research has turned both theories [“Ancient River” and “Stream Capture”] upside down. Geologists now think that Grand Canyon grew in quick spurts from massive flooding…over 750,000 years.” (National Geographic for Kids, March 2005, p. 5).
This is no small admission, as old-earth beliefs are the foundation for both Darwinism and Secular Humanism.
