There are a few ways.
1. The time needed for the Earth's shape as we see it today isn't nearly as long as believed by mainstream science.
2. God created the Earth to seem older than it actually is, including continents which appear to have drifted over millions of years.
3. Tectonics is a myth.
4. "6,000 years" is not the same to us today as it is within the context of scripture.
Originally posted by 7ate94. You aren't paying attention. Review my previous comment on relative meanings of "6,000 years".
4. no good, not 6000 yrs.
3. science should prove this wrong with ease.
2. & 1. could have a little meaning.
Originally posted by 7ate9In that case you should have re-phrased your question. I understood your original inquiry to be a straight-forward request.
4. i'm not concerned about those people.
3. like i said science should prove this with ease, if it wanted.
1&2. you answered where i'm looking at, yes.
Originally posted by 7ate9Easy to explain, but if you don't like any of the answers, there seems little point in even asking.
no, i'm saying there is only one possible answer, for a 6000yr creationist. i want to know how they explain how a flood caused it to happen... continental shift. creation, nah not interested as it's not clear.
i ain't interested in what you want me to be interested in my own thread. simple. this makes sense to both sides and those inbetween. my question was straight-forward, how does a ((6000)) yr creationist explain continental shift.
Originally posted by 7ate9The ocean has some very deep trechlines. Even assuming the skeletal remains didn't turn to dust years ago, this seems like a good dumping ground.
while you're at it another area to look at would be where dead animals ended up after the flood. this should hold proof to a flood. has any research been done here?

random statistics would dictate they would be spread in a certain order.
