Huh??? You don't even know my understanding of geology, I do. I am quite comfortable with my increased knowledge of geology. No it isn't my lack of understanding of the geology of some areas, it is the lack of geologist as a wholes undersanding of some areas that I too do not understand. If they don't understand it, then how am I supposed to understand it??? Except give you what I think may have happened, which is what most geologist would do.
Sadly, I did: "I don't understand this and can't explain it, so you must not be able to either."
So go ahead, make your funny little jokes about sandboxes and chipmunks. All your buddies here will laugh and slap you on the back, and you'll feel good about yourself for another day. Then tomorrow when you wake up you'll be just as ignorant, and just as sad. And the geologic evidence like the Powder River incised meanders carved through 800' of solid basalt will still be there, bearing silent witness to your intellectual self-deception and inability to deal with reality.
I'll leave you with this question still unanswered:
[b]If you know for a fact that you don't fully understand a topic (like geology, for example), isn't it possible that it's your lack of understanding that makes the OE position seem irrational, and not the actual position itself?
During the Flood the basalt was most likely not solid. Actually a Flood model of some type would most likely be the only explanation for this, because millions upon bagillions of years of errosion would most likely be the other option... that or chipmunks.
Basalt is the most common rock on planet earth. It is an igneous rock, which means that at the time of it's formation that it was molten lava. Now we must ask ourselves the question: Can large amounts of Flood Waters cut through molten lava??? Offcourse they can, and thats most likely what happened.
