Therefore, evolutionists interpret the Precambrian as about 90% of all geologic time—a vast period, they believe, before life evolved.
A few feet above this global interface are found representatives of all animal and plant phyla.
Within overlying layers, other fossils are found which required different environments, such as deserts or lagoons, so obviously, even more time is needed.
(Unlimited time makes the nearly impossible seem possible—if you don’t think too much about mechanisms.) Figure 8: Dry sand can have a maximum slope of only 32 degrees.

If no card slips, the entire deck, including the top card, will decelerate as a unit.
Sediments, forced into a denser packing arrangement, released water.
Sedimentary particles were crushed or broken, so their fragments filled the spaces between particles, releasing even more water.
The sliding sedimentary block above the slippage plane beveled off the still soft tops of the tipped layers. In the left figure, notice the large, 5–10-ton block near the center, and the shadows of photographer Jim Mc Dowell (my son-in-law) and two grandsons, Sean and Ryan Mc Dowell.
In the Grand Canyon, the Cambrian-Precambrian interface is an almost flat, horizontal surface exposed for 66 miles above the Colorado River.
Layers above the Cambrian-Precambrian interface are generally horizontal, but layers below are tipped at large angles, and their tipped edges are beveled off horizontally.
Below is the online edition of In the Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood, by Dr. [See pages 111–149.] Visualize a deck of cards sliding across a table. That card, in turn, applies a decelerating force on the second card from the bottom.
[ The Fountains of the Great Deep Liquefaction During the Compression Event ] While liquefaction operated during the flood phase, it acted massively once during the compression event, at the end of the continental-drift phase.
