Peer ReviewLet's be real--is any evolutionary journal going to let a creationist in and sully their prestigious reputation? That's like saying Richard Dawkins is going to Glen Rose, Texas.
As far as peer review--there is peer review among creationists, which contrary to your likely guess, is not so few.
I hike through a canyon that in places are vertical and some are not. Where there are waterfalls there are vertical walls OF CLAY-- high in silicate material. There are huge boulders of sedimentary clay (some of them you can scratch sand off with your fingers) strewn over the bottom on top of each other, which are obviously a result of gravity pulling them off the side. In effect gravity shaped the canyon--NOT THE WATER--flooding has cut the canyons--but gravity shaped it. And the walls are vertical, this principle would still work even if the walls were 10 times higher.
It is silicate based clay that can cause vertical walls on canyons--yet be "soft" enough for flooding to cut through. The grand canyon is a large scale of this principle--because it's walls are silicate based--not soft mud formed in the topsoil.
guys, I think we've got one dumber than FL or ray-ray.
"attacking the messenger is a cheap shell game ploy" Attacking the messenger('s idiotic posts) is what this forum is about. Go home if you don't want to play.
"That's like saying Richard Dawkins is going to Glen Rose, Texas" I suspect that if you paid his fee, Dawkins would be on the next plane. He would probably love to thump those thumpers.
Peer Review: Poor IDiots. they want to be accepted as true scientists, but only if we change the rules.WHIIIINNNNNNNE.
" I hike through a canyon . . ."
This is so funny in so many ways its just sad. I know most of you understand geology 101, but obviously someone needs a lesson. CLAY is a mineral found in many sedimentary rocks. It is not a rock. Is your rock shale, siltstone, sandstone? Enquiring minds want to know! If only gravity was it work, wouldn't all the material that has fallen off the walls still be there somewhere? What force carried it away? You say canyon walls cannot overhang: ever been in a slot canyon in Arizona or Utah? Ever seen pictures of a slot canyon? Again geology 101: limestone is not silicate based.
If you are the IDiots next great white intellect, the movement is definitely doomed.
