Varve dating Amatuersexchat
Let's assume it rains 40 times a year at the GRF location. This is much longer than the 6,000 to 10,000 years that young earth creationists claim as the age of the earth.
For the remainder of this article this formation will be referred to as the GRF. Using the standard varve explanation above, that would mean this formation represents over three million years of sedimentation.At the end of each claim, I will show the flaws in the young earth arguments against varves.In the end, you will see that the claims fall far short of disproving the standard geologic thinking about varves.This would give support to the fact that varve layers could be from individual storm events, thus if you had an area that had 40 storms in a year, you could have 40 layers.In the example they use, there are 300 to 360 layers which had formed over a 160 year period.
