Most of the Carboniferous formations are due to The Flood and its many after affects. ....... "

So what about the formations that are older than the Carboniferous: cambrian, ordovician and silurian?  Do those rocks just not exist in your world?

The muppet said here that they'res all flood strata - at least down to the mantle.  So the sequence of events leading to coal deposits was presumably:
1.  Rain.
2.  Flooding.
3.  Rapid sediment deposits.
4.  Sediment deposition stops for a while.
5.  Forests grow underwater.
6.  More sediment deposits.

4, 5 and 6 get repeated a few times, with additional undersea deposition of riverbeds, lakebeds, sand dunes, footprints etc.

all in 40 days?
