Response Article
This article (Meteor craters are never found in deeper strata (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.

Claim CD110:

Meteor craters are never found in deeper strata, as they should be if the strata were deposited over many millions of years.

Source: Wysong, R. L., 1981. The Creation-Evolution Controversy. Midland, MI: Inquiry Press, p. 171.

CreationWiki response:

This is simply an out of date claim.

While meteor craters are found in deeper strata, there are more in upper layers than lower layers. This is the opposite of what uniformitarian geology predicts, but exactly the order predicted by the Flood model.
