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:
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?
