What do you think about the layer dating method? In my opinion, in most cases, that was a brilliant way to hide a super-fast accumulation of dirt (any type).
The honest errors of discoverers become the dogmas of their epigones.
This is a great example of an anomaly that simply can't exist in the current accepted model and is so fundamentally invalidating to it that it has to be ignored. It really is common sense... if sedimentary structures can dramatically transform in much, much, MUCH smaller timeframes than conventionally believed, it simply invalidates a model based on gradual change.The honest errors of discoverers become the dogmas of their epigones.
When Nicolas Steno in 1669 formulated his for principles of the science of stratigraphy (the law of superposition being only the most famous) he approached the problem of the layering of soil quite naively. Sloppily expressed: What's deeper must be older. His ideas were later used by James Hutton to develop his theories about seabed deposition, uplifting, erosion, and submersion, which lead to the explanation i.e. of the sedimentary structures found in the Grand Canyon.
But in modern times, especially the Eruption of Mount St. Helen's in 1980 has shown that sedimentary structures like these found in the Grand Canyon can be formed within hours or days. I.e. see: Learning the lessons of Mount St Helens.
Furthermore scientist like Guy Berthault have proven Steno's theory to be wrong experimentally:
Time Required for Sedimentation Contradicts the Evolutionary Hypothesis
Experiments on lamination of sediments
Experiments on stratification of heterogeneous sand mixtures

In most cases I do suspect some main stream scientist out there fearing to loose their face and their grands. They simply didn't or don't yet want know better out of quite mundane and human reasons.
But no, in most cases I don't supect some sinister forces out there 'to hide a super-fast accumulation of dirt' in order to what?
This mudflood they found in good prove of.!
