Modern geology generally excludes global cataclysms as having any role in shaping the surface of the Earth. Catastrophic events are acknowledged as having some limited role: impacts, volcanism, supernovae, climate change etc. but usually such events have been called upon to ‘explain’ certain specific occurrences e.g. the extinction of the dinosaurs and such events always happen at a safe distance in both time and space.Whilst we have no real understanding of the true age of the Earth we do find surface features that don’t fit with an ‘old Earth’ view. It is entirely possible that the Earth is older than the consensus view if so, we have a discrepancy, an ‘old’ Earth with ‘young’ surface features that are frequently seen as just as ancient by consensus science. Could it be that many of the Earth’s surface features are not ancient but geologically speaking ‘young’?
I didn’t find the right solution from the internet.
