how can a uniformaritan justify the fact that fossil evidences appear to be rapidly buried? how? i want counter-examples...

Uniformatrianism merely states that observing modern geological processes gives clues as to how ancient rocks were formed.

So if you find a deposit of sanstone with these features:

1 - upturned plates covering the surface of larger grains, where the grains have had high velocity collisions when saltating. High velocities are a result of wind transport as grains reach much higher velocities than similar grains in water. The plates are from resulting cleavage scraps.

2 - equidimensional or elongate depressions, which are a result of direct instead of glancing impacts between saltating or creeping grains.

3 - smooth surfaces on smaller grains due to precipitation and solution of silica. These grains are generally unaffected by abrasion as the grains are transported by suspension, when collisions occur they is less abrasion due to low kinetic energy levels.

4 - arcuate, circular or polygonal cracks on smaller grains as a result of physical or chemical weathering.
Coastal aeolian grains show a smaller amount of upturned plates, but other signs are rarely found on coastal grains and are common on hot desert aeolian grains.

All four characteristics are found on both the Triassic grains and the modern hot desert grains.

from:ancient desert sandstone

Then it is a resonable assumption that these rocks are ancient desert deposits.

Experiments can also show that the sand could not have been deposited underwater. I have observed these sort of rocks for myself. Oddly these desert despsits supposedly date from the middle of the flood! (permian/triassic).

There are many examples of modern sedimentary environments where sediment is being rapidly deposited for example river estuaries. So uniformatarianism absolutely does not say sediment cannot be deposited rapidly because rapid deposition happens today.
