Split Mountain

Split Mountain in the Anza Borego Desert in southern California is a monument to catastrophic flood geology. An earthquake split the 600 foot mountain ridge open and revealed it was composed chiefly of large, water-worn, boulders up to the size of a large dump truck. This pile of boulders would not have accumulated slowly and gradually over millions of years- since large boulders like that take a major, high velocity current to move.  Layer after layer of these boulders indicates pulsating violent currents. In one place, a huge pile of these boulders pushed its way into the middle of a sequence of layered rocks; which supposedly took a hundred million years to form.  It seems that the great amount of time never existed, since the layers would have been solid rock in that time and the mass of boulders could not have forced its way in. These types of boulder deposits would be common during a global flood.
