We didn't used to use the term Carboniferous in the United States. We used Mississipian (older) and Pennsylvanian (younger). These rocks are between 359 to 249 million years old. In the midcontinent, including North Texas, the Mississipian is mostly shallow water limestone and the Pennsylvanian is mostly a near shore, riverine environment. I'm sure that sometime during the millions of years of the Pennsylvanian the rivers probably flooded a few times. How does that indicate a global flood?
