    That is why I mentioned that they were the result of still waters. Clay
    particles are quite small and settle out of water only when the water isn't
    moving anywhere. Their speed of deposition is governed by Stoke's Law, which
    says, the bigger the particle the faster it drops through the water and the
    smaller, the slower. That is not what one has in a flood. In a flood one
    should expect moving water with only large particles deposited. One can't
    have it both ways--one can't have a flood and have it deposit shales. The
    shale particles move with the water further than the cobbles, pebbles and
