Geologists can point to their measurements of geologic processes that extend far beyond that narrow time frame.
For continents to drift apart and form oceans takes hundreds of millions of years.
To say that all of this goes back only 10,000 years is simply absurd in the eyes of geologists." Awake 1983 Mar 8 p.14 Remember that Watchtower quote, as it undermines several arguments from the Watchtower for proving a flood, and will be discussed later.
