If I understand the uniformatarian point of view correctly, the deeper archeologists dig at a site, the further back in time they are going. This must mean that new sediment is being added to the surface of the earth at a constent rate, year in and year out.
I'm skeptical about just how young the earth is. But whatever the truth is, scientific observation should bear it out. That's why I'm questioning the basics of uniformatarianism.
The problem is that there are now places on earth that I remember walking over 50 years ago. In that time there doesn't seem to be any new sediment. And I once found an abandoned graveyard in the woods with headstones that dated back almost 200 years. The headstones seemed to be at the original level with no additional sediment. The same was true of the poorly-maintained graveyard I visited in Connecticut that had headstones from the early 1700's. Also, the rain constantly washes sediment into the rivers which carry it to the oceans.
I know all you YECers will say, yeah, that's proof. But can anyone explain where true uniformatarians say the sediment comes from, and why I don't experience it?
