A TYPICAL YEC ARGUMENT WRONG ON MANY COUNTS. SEE BELOW.

In the most recent ICR (Institute for Creation Research) Impact Article 381, John Baumgardner opened with: "An ongoing enigma for the standard geological community is why all the high mountain ranges of the world-including the Himalayas, the Alps, the Andes, and the Rockies-experienced most of the uplift to their present elevations in what amounts to a blink of the eye, relative to the standard geological time scale. In terms of this time scale, these mountain ranges have all undergone several kilometers of vertical uplift since the beginning of the Pliocene about five million years ago.

WHAT'S THE PROBLEM? THAT IS ONLY 5000 METRES OR 10000 METRES IN 5000000
YEARS I.E ON AVERAGE A MILLIMETRE OR FEW A YEAR.AS EARTHQUAKES WILL GIVE A DISPLACEMENT OF METRES THERE IS NO PROBLEM.

Michael,

What would you say is the rate of erosion in the Himalayas?

Bill
