Gouge is fine ground clay that builds up in faults as the rocks move against

However, it is rock on rock. But I'm not suggesting a quantitative

You are such a sycophant.
Look, the bottom line is this. It is I-M-P-O-S-S-I-B-L-E for 1,000,000,000
year old rocks to be deposited on top of 150,000,000 year old rocks. It just
It can if it all happens in the same month.
So, where we have older rocks on to of younger rocks there has to be a
mechanism. In the case of the Lewis Overthrust this is clearly plate
tectonics. It is not just the rocks of the Lewis Overthrust itself, it is all
the rocks for hundreds of miles around which help to show the plate movements.
It is rock cores taken over a vast field, including the Lewis Overthrust,
which show how the plates came together and interacted.
Go and learn so geology, look at detailed geology maps, study the real data
and above all - for once, use some bloody common sense.
If this is so ironclad then I have a hard time understanding why the thrust
fault paradox is still alive as recently as 2005. Why hasn't someone just
said give it up, it obviously happens.
