    #1 is an angular unconformity in sedimentary rock. Unconformities in Geology: Definition & Types - Video & Lesson Transcript | Study.com

    #2 appears to be a varved lake deposite

    #3 we have only your statement that coulee was created in a few months, no link. Looks like soft soils, so such is possible.

    No, there never were trillions of human ancestors. And there are quite a few hominoid fossils. Here are a few;

    Less than 200 found over a period of 7 million years. Yes, there were trillions who lived and died. Do the math.

    Because my picture had nothing to do with water. So what is your point again?

    Mount St Helens.

    These rocks were not deposited in annual layers.

    And back to my other point. No evidence of streams or rivers in any of the exposed layers. Anywhere.
    Nice abrupt transitions between them suggests cataclysmic events, not gradual layering over time.

    You are so full of shit. We trace river beds and there changes for millions of years. Such as the Columbia river for 20 million years.

    You miss the point. At some point some layer in the world should not be perfectly flat, but have a dip where a river or stream once flowed at a diagonal angle. As you claim, there is hundreds of millions of years of work here to form these layers. Surely there would have been at least one stream.

    BTW - glad you brought up the Columbia. The gorge was formed long after mankind arrived in the area. As well the Grand Canyon was not formed over millions of years as once believed. We now know one of the largest lakes in the west dried up long after mankind was on the scene and is today one of the hottest and driest places on earth. Death Valley.
    Science is slowly moving towards the truth.

    Whether you refer to fish in the ocean or reptiles like crocodiles, if they reach a stage in development that makes them successful in that stage, they no longer need to change to adapt. With certain primates (hominids), the opposable thumb, along with being able to stand upright helped them change, learn and get larger brains. A good example of evolutionary change over millions of years that can be followed, is the horse.

    A plankton is very successful. So you agree, evolution of species is hogwash.

    Fact remains:

    You claimed that a fish was 66 million years old- and you can't find any fossils of modern man anywhere near that old.

    Fact remains is that there are no fossil explanation for your Creationist bunk.

    Each species that reaches the point in which it is very successful has no need to advance beyond that stage unless the environment or situations change thus necessitating physical changes. Among fishes, the shark has reached the point whereby it is one of the top predators and thus won't alter unless the environment or circumstances necessitate change. Evolution is that change which occurs when the circumstances and/or environment necessitate change for survival. The primary component in T-Rex collagen is that of "chicken." Researchers activating dormant DNA in chicken embryos created a facial feature more dinosaurial, while other researchers were able via activating dormant chicken DNA in embryos, to have teeth grow in those embryos.
    The bottom line is that because a massive asteroid strike caused a global environmental change and because of this, newborn creatures following the strike had to adjust to their new habitat. Those that couldn't died out and those that adapted, survived.
