Fast Water, Quick Canyons
Did it really take millions of years to form the Grand Canyon? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.
Back in 1926, a canal in the desert of Walla Walla, near Washington, became clogged with tumbleweeds. After heavy rainfall, workers diverted the rainwater to a ditch that was six feet wide and ten feet deep. Over six days, the water moved five million cubic feet of dirt and rock, resulting in a canyon over a quarter of a mile long, 120 feet deep and 120 feet wide!
Canyons throughout the world have undoubtedly been formed by large volumes of water moving a large amount of rock in a short time. While none of these canyons are as large as the Grand Canyon, the return of waters to the ocean after the Genesis Flood provides more than enough power to carve a feature as large as the Grand Canyon.
