Engineers Canyon is at the base of Mt. St. Helens. The walls are over 100 feet deep and have several tributaries.
How it Happened
In 1980 Mt. St. Helen's erupted in Washington. This was a
major eruption that released an eruption column 80,000 feet in the air and
spread ash to 11 states, the release was equal to 26 megatons. Snow, ice, and
Glaciers melted making mudslides around 50 miles long.
An Amazing First Hand Observation
Within nine hours the cataclysm that was the eruption caused
a canyon to form with 100 feet deep canyon walls that formed rock layers
spreading many miles.
Over the next decade trees that were loosed in the mudslides
would sink vertically to the bottom of the lakes and become embedded in the
lake bed. Both of these outcomes were previously thought to take millions of
years by the evolutionist community.
What Does This Mean for the Flood?
We are told by geologist and evolutionist alike that the
Grand Canyon took millions of years to form because the common belief was that
there was no other way to explain deep cut canyons and rock layers. The even
that formed Engineers Canyon took only 9 hours to make the canyon and about a
decade to settle the trees in the lake bed.
While this was a major event it would be considered
microscopic compared to the flood spoken of in Genesis. In Genesis the flood
was not just rain coming down it was also the wellsprings of the deep coming
forth from the ground and could have easily cut the Grand Canyon into existence
within the 40 days and nights recorded in the Bible. In fact it caused some to
take another look and they took notice that the Grand Canyon has rock layers
that are bent, this could only happen while the sediment was malleable (soft)
and therefore could not explain the millions of years theory.
There are several other evidences world wide such as finding
fish fossils on mountain tops. It is highly unlikely that fish fossils could
end up that high without a flood.
