The Siberian Traps, A Creationist Opinion

Recently I learned about a startling rock formation called the Siberian Traps, created at a time when at least half of Siberia looked like the lava planet from “Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith.”  I have just posted a footnote about them in Chapter 10 of The Genesis Chronicles.  Quote:

The world’s largest igneous rock formation is in western Siberia, and called the "Siberian Traps" ("traps" is Swedish for "steps," a lot of the mountains and cliffs look like stairs). Today Siberia is usually thought of as a cold wasteland, fit only for white tigers, wolves, and Russian prisoners, but at one point in prehistoric times, it was the site of the largest known eruption. And this was not a case of a single volcano erupting, or even a chain of volcanoes; the earth’s crust cracked so badly that the whole western half of Siberia, an area larger than Europe, melted down! Evolutionists date this catastrophe to the late Permian period, and suggest that it not only killed off 90 percent of the world’s life, but it also marked the dividing line between the Paleozoic and Mesozoic eras. My response is to suggest that the Siberian Traps are the most visible evidence of the destruction of the earth’s surface, that occurred at the time of Noah’s Flood. The reason why this formation is so well preserved is that they are in an area that is covered by ice and snow for most of the year, and where there hasn’t been much human activity over the millennia.
