I just added a section to my page on Canadian coal which impacts the
floating veggie mat theory which Bill is advocating. I point out a map,

running through the Harrisburg No. 5 coal seam. This channel goes across
many counties. It is hard to see how a floating vegetation mat could also
deposit a meandering sandstone channel at the same time as it is dropping
vegetation. Are we now going to suggest floating sand bodies which drop
sandstone in the global flood?
