    The same way any geologist would explain it, I'd imagine.

    Wait a minute -- you can't say that! Creationists are anti-scientific and will invent alternative theories wherever it seems like the two fields will intersect.

    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.

    Er... you forgot the opposite of uniformitarianism -- catastophism and more specifically the global flood -- meteor impacts that could have accelerated continental drift to have occurred over a matter of days/months.

    Ah, yes. I must be slipping.

    3. science should prove this wrong with ease.

    2. & 1. could have a little meaning.
    4. You aren't paying attention. Review my previous comment on relative meanings of "6,000 years".

    3. Science that is wrong, obviously.

    2. & 1. Have an answer. You didn't ask for something that makes sense to you alone, now did you?

    1&2. you answered where i'm looking at, yes.
    In that case you should have re-phrased your question. I understood your original inquiry to be a straight-forward request.

    What you actually wish is to have someone explain young-Earth creationism in a way which makes sense to you, which we both know is not going to happen.

    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.
    Easy to explain, but if you don't like any of the answers, there seems little point in even asking.

    The 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.

    The flood itself wasn't exactly random, was it?

    You place far too much importance on science. This is a matter of faith. It isn't God's job to provide you with sufficient "proof" of His actions.

    Fossil graveyards such as the one in Gadoufaoua are better explained through catastrophism.
