Floodwaters together with volcanic ash would provide the perfect mineral combination for this process.

A solution to these anomalies came in 1980, when Mount St. The March 30 eruption melted the glacial ice, precipitating a flood on the south side of the mountain.

Along with cold volcanic ash, the rushing water carried a large number of trees down the side of the mountain.

Debris falling in the lakes surrounding the mountain caused tidal waves which washed uprooted trees into newly formed and existing lakes.

In Spirit Lake a study found that the logs that had root stumps rapidly righted themselves, assuming a vertical position.

Analyses of tree orientation show that both horizontal and vertical trees are orientated in distinct directions.

By comparison, the orientation of fallen trees in standing forests in Oregon, deciduous forests in Michigan, and redwood forests in California show a lack of orientation.

Note that the bark is stripped and the roots are ripped off.

Moreover these logs lie orientated in direction of stream flow.

This belief in long ages for the earth and the existence of life is derived largely from radiometric dating.
