There is many problems with the so called Geologic column of strata and it keeps getting worst! No where in geological formations can we find, all the strata in order. Instead we only find little bits here and there, and frequently they are mixed up (out of their theoretical sequence).
Never are all the strata in the theoretical "geologic column" to be found in one complete sandwich, anywhere in the world. Most of the time only two to eight of the 21 theoretical strata can be found. Even the classic example of rock strata, Grand Canyon, only has about half of them. But the missing strata should be there! How can strata be missing? Yet this is the way it is every where on the earth.
Nowhere! anywhere! Is the entire geologic column of the evolutionists to be found, for it is an imaginary column. " Practically nowhere on the earth can one find the so-called "geologic column". In fact, at most places on the continents, over half the "geologic periods" are missing! Only 15-20 percent of the earth's land surface has even one-third of those periods in the correct consecutive order. Even within the Grand Canyon, over 150 million years of this imaginary column are missing. Using the assumed geologic column to date fossils and rocks is fallacious" (Walter T. Brown, In the Beginning, (1989), p.15).
"We are only kidding ourselves if we think that we have anything like a complete succession for any part of the stratigraphical column in any one place" (Derek V. Ager, Nature of the Stratigraphical Record, (1981), p.32).
How can it be that the geologic column is so incomplete, when evolutionary theory teaches that it was quietly, slowly laid down uniformly over millions of years? The truth is that the rock strata points us back to a terrible worldwide catastrophe-the Flood (Genesis 6:17)-not to millions of years of gradual soil deposits from dead plants and windblown soil. "For this they willing are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was , being overflowed with water, perished" (2 Peter 3:5-6).
