Here I simply must protest the silliness going on here. [Sarcastic mode on]
Almost ALL shales are water-laid (shale being a synonym for clay). And guess
what? We are along a river and rivers amazingly carry WATER (obviously a
new discovery). Think of the amazing coicidence this presents. That one
would find water laid shale next to a river is so unlikely as to be beyond
comprehension. Wow!!!! water laid sediments along a river valley. What will
we think of next???? Cow patties in a pasture? [sarcastic mode off]
Lagash is along the Tigris
(http://emuseum.mnsu.edu/archaeology/sites/middle_east/lagash.html) so it
isn't very surprising, Dick to find water laid clays. What do you expect?
for lots of creation/evolution information
