I don't purport to... an expert on geology; but I do know from examples such as Mt. Saint Helens here in the Northwest that sometimes geologic features that seem like they must be extremely old when explained on the basis of uniformitarianism can be created relatively overnight. I remember watching a documentary that showed how a miniature Grand Canyon was formed by the volcano with sedimentary layers, and also how a lot of the trees around Spirit lake ended up in a configuration associated with petrified forests.

I think it's rather egotistical to take a know-it-all stance based on only accepting uniformitarianism as a valid argument. Need to have an open-mind on these things. Kind of like with climate science. Anyone who dares question the orthodox priests of science on what they deem acceptable is subject to these kinds of charges of heresy and witch hunts as you seem to be interested in.
