As of 9/19/2016, this article was freely accessible online at Gregg Davidson and Ken Wolgemuth, present what they believe are strong geological arguments for an old earth.

Geologists have known for quite some time that multiple laminae may form very rapidly. One such argument involves counts of sedimentary laminations (“varves”) within the floor of Japan’s Lake Suigetsu. “SG06, A Fully Continuous and Varved Sediment Core from Lake Suigetsu, Japan: Stratigraphy and Potential for Improving the Radiocarbon Calibration Model and Understanding of Late Quaternary Climate Changes.” Quaternary Science Reviews 36: 164–176. Their article claims that the very large number of Lake Suigetsu varve counts is strong evidence for an old earth. A varve is defined as “A sedimentary bed or sequence of laminae deposited in a body of still water within one year’s time . The net result, in theory, is an “annual” varve consisting of a summer and winter depositional couplet layer. Because varves are by definition “annual,” they have been used to measure the ages of lake deposits and as proof of ages of millions of years.
