The geological record indicates that eons ago, a deep ocean covered the area. At ocean's edge, a lip of land created a lagoon filled with coral and marine animals. It appears that an extraterrestrial object crashed onto Earth near where the lagoon met the ocean and created a series of tsunamis and related water spouts that churned up the terrain.

Impacts of much larger proportions struck when most of the continent was under water, probably during Noah's Flood. Across a 10,000 square kilometer area in southern Nevada, disrupted limestone blocks and as many as five graded beds occur, as if great tsunamis sorted debris by size.
