Sedimentation experiments by the creationist Guy Berthault, sometimes working with non-creationists, have shown that fine layers can form by a self-sorting mechanism during the settling of differently sized particles.
If so, then the rock layers must have formed over vast ages.
The ‘deep time’ indoctrination comes with the statement ‘often reaching great thicknesses over long periods of time.’ However, this goes beyond the evidence.
Great thicknesses could conceivably be produced either by a little water over long periods, or a lot of water over short periods.
It was found that the same layer thicknesses were reproduced, regardless of flow rate.
This suggests that the original rock was produced by a similar self-sorting mechanism, followed by cementing of the particles together.
