Deep Sea Sediments Indicate Young Ocean Erosion Rate off Continents Negates Thesis Ocean Age Billions Years Despite Earth History Model by Lyell and Hutton of Uniformitarian Geologic Gradualism

A thin veneer of sediments lies on the vast and deep ocean floors of the world, atop the basaltic volcanic rock which composes the oceanic crust of the earth, and this defies the notion that the oceans are hundreds of millions, or billions, of years of age, because the oceans should have filled with sediments within 80 million years, at the current erosion rate of 27 billion tons of sediment per year which enters the ocean, most of it at the river deltas, the mouths of the continental drainage systems.

So the oceans must be far younger than 80 million years old, because the oceans of the world are obviously far from being filled to the brim with sediments, and besides, the volume of the continents above sea level is about 1/5th the volume of the oceans, so the continents would have had to erode five times over to fill the oceans with sediments in 80 million years, therefore, you can see that the geologic gradualism of Hutton and Lyell, earth history supposedly over billions of years for Darwinism, is not geologically feasible, for this reason, among many others.

Some mainstreamers try to explain this away in saying that the sediments in the oceans are disappearing down oceanic plate subduction zones, where oceanic crust is slowly sudducting under continental crust at the very slow rate of about an inch per year, but the deltas where almost all of the sedimentation is found (near both the current coast and the lower Ice Age sea level coast) are almost always nowhere near the subduction zones (such as the subduction zone below western South America, no huge river deltas there), so their argument is obviously specious.  And be sure to see
