Hello, dis Habilis here. Habilis have very big problems he wants to tell. Some people think earth not old. Think that earth created 10,000 year ago, that big flood come kill whole earth. Think that after, earth regrows. Habilis have big problem with this. Here is one: Coral Reefs. Coral reef grows in ocean, grows in shallow water. Needs sun. Needs clean water. Very delicate. Is made of living coral. Has beautiful fish. Nemo lives here. But reef also delicate. Needs clean water, good temperature. So how reef survive if big flood come destroy whole world in 1 year? Here is what famous young earth man say about flood:
As the ocean waters flooded over the continents, they must have buried plants and animals in rapid succession. These rapidly deposited sediment layers were spread across vast areas, preserving fossils of sea creatures in layers that are high above the current (receded) sea level. The sand and other sediments in these layers were transported long distances from their original sources.
See problem? See why coral all die, no come back? Whole world was covered with water that was filled with dirt, sand, clay. This more muddy water than when Habilis sprays ground with hose, and takes mud bath. Ever see muddy river? If big flood, mud worse: whole world would be covered with waters million times more muddy than Mississippi river flooding a dirt factory. This big problem for coral reef. Reef needs very delicate conditions to live: clean water, good sun, right nutrients, steady temperature. If big flood came: no sun, dirty water, too much nutrients. Reef would die. If you no believe Habilis read here:
Fine terrigenous sediment entering the nearshore ocean during runoff events affects corals in two ways: (1) suspended in seawater, the sediment drastically reduces the amount of light reaching coral reefs and other shallow benthic systems; and (2) as the sediment settles, it can bury corals or cause them to expend a large amount of energy keeping their surfaces clean. Although a clear link exists between high sediment loads and coral-reef degradation, the mechanisms responsible for coral decline are not well quantified.
Habilis resay: DIRT KILL CORAL REEF. FLOOD WATERS SUPER DIRTY. If flood came, brought much dirt. Reef would die, no come back. Habilis suggests an experiment to prove: buy expensive reef tank. Look at pretty fish. Pour in dirt. Coral dead. Fish dead. If happen to world, reef need long time grow back in post flood environments. What you think?
Habilis goes eat manioc. Sees you later.
