I didn't take any offense at it. In fact I was thinking of it on the way
home tonight from a party because it does raise an issue that has
interesting possibilities. How violent was the flood which could erode the
entire preflood world and deposit up to 60,000 feet of sediments? The
carrying load of water is directly proportional to the velocity of the
water. A gentle flood seems like an oxymoron to me.
