It Is Impossible To Fold Rock

Bent, curved, folded rock layers are a common sight around the world. But, how did they get folded. If you try to bend rock... it doesn't bend, it fractures and breaks. And not only do we see folded layers, we see many layers all folded together. If it takes millions of years to lay down a layer of sediment, how can so many layers of rock (respresenting millions of years of deposits) all be folded together?

geological folds are impossible

This Is A Difficult Question... Except...

Based on long ages, the folded rocks we observe have no reasonable explanation. They could not have happened.

Based on the reality of Noah's Flood, folded rock layers are very reasonable. The sediment layers are the result of a year-long global flood. When the fountains of the deep opened up (Genesis 7:11), that was the start of the continents moving apart accompanied by tremendous earthquakes and volcanoes. These would have continued after the flood, and we are still seeing the remnant of the continents splitting apart in continental drift today. The large movements of the earth during and shortly after the flood would have resulted in the rock folds we see today. At that time the sediment was still wet and soft, so it could bend without fracturing.

That we observe geologic folds today is further evidence that a recent (4,500 years ago) global flood did happen.

GETTING A RIDE
ON THE ROAD TO LIFE

Romans Road


You will exist forever. The question is, where? Disobeying God is the road to death, and we have all disobeyed God:

For all have sinned [disobeyed God] and fall short of the glory of God. - Romans 3:23

The consequence of sin is death. You will exist experiencing death forever.

For the wages of sin is death... - Romans 6:23a

But there is GOOD News! You can have life!

...but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. - Romans 6:23b

God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. - Romans 5:8

Instead of our experiencing death forever, Christ died in our place. Repent (turn away from disobeying God), believe this, trusting that Jesus truly did die in your place.

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. - Romans 5:1
