Fails to consider all observational science. Consider for example, looking at Mount Saint Helens, and how trees became petrified all at once, it didn't take millions of years in fact it was within a few hours to days. Consider a worldwide flood as realistic and observable, as well as on a small scale repeatable, with supporting evidence around us.
