Misrepresentation of Grand Canyon rock formations

Not when it is 100 ft tall. Gravity would cause the sediments to slump on the bottom.

It sounds like you and I have the same level of interest – I’m not a geologist either. But I do enjoy learning from all of you others here who have looked into this more deeply than I have. Once the issue gets liberated from the clingingly defensive grips of religion-science conflict, then there is much good education to be had for someone like me.

That’s a good point too. It’s hard for me to part from my impression that there must have been some metamorphic plasticity involved to make them look even somewhat like that (even with fractures such as there are.) But I also realize that extreme pressures and long periods of time can render a seemingly solid thing (solid in our realm of experience) as rather fluid in that different context.
