Topography (from Greek: τόπος, topos, meaning "place", and Greek: γράφω, graphō, "write") is a field of science that comprises the study of the surface shape and features of the Earth and other astronomical objects observable, including planets, moons and asteroids.


This page is a summary of topographies and why they are one the best geologic evidences of a global flood.


Topographies are the surface erosion and features of strata in the geologic column. The predictions of Creationists and Uniformitairians is completely opposite from each other, so there should be no way that the evidence in the rocks could be interperated two different ways; Either the OE scientist must change their model to catastrophe or the creationist must be in a pickle trying to explain long periods of erosion between layers.


One of the best places to test the hypothesis is in the Grand Staircase in the S.W. United States, where we can observe thousands of feet of geologic strata.

No significant topography since the Precambrian can be found until the current geologic strata [1]. Despite the fact, evolutionists have placed a 200 million year unconformity between the Cambrian Muav and the Mississippian Redwall Limestone. These layers actually interbed in places, which is only known to occur during contemporaneous deposition [2].


Given the fact that no topographies can be found in ancient strata within the geologic column, the evidence can only be indicative of catastrophe and a young geologic column.
