Topsoil consists of weathered rock and organic material (decomposed from plants and animals). Millions of years should have produced extremely thick layers of soil throughout the geological record. However, ancient topsoil layers are missing between virtually all rock layers. The geological record shows layers of sedimentary, metamorphic, or igneous rock deposited directly on top of one another. There are very few places where topsoil is found between these rock layers. So where is all the topsoil from millions of years of Earth history?

Standard geology teaches that land surfaces, supporting lush life, have been here continuously for hundreds of millions of years. Where is all the topsoil between the sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous layers which make up the geologic column? The layers of rock in the geologic column, with essentially no layers of topsoil in between them, seem to indicate that little time occurred between the deposition of these layers. In those few places where soil-type sediments are present between rock layers, there is evidence that they were deposited by flood waters.

The best explanation for the geological column is that these layers were deposited over a short period of time, one layer right after another, which allowed no time for topsoil to form between the layers. The virtual absence of topsoil within the grological column is excellent evidence in support of the biblical claim for a young earth.
