Evidence From Geology

August 30th, 2009


The mapping of the ocean floor–with its awesome mountain ranges and deep caverns–shows a gigantic fissure (crack) spanning the entire globe, called the Mid-Oceanic Ridge. The Bible says when the Flood began, “all the fountains of the deep were broken up” (Genesis 7:11). The Hebrew word used for broken up also means “to rip open” or “burst forth.” This implies that massive quantities of subterranean waters existed below the surface of the earth and that these waters broke forth to fill our present sea basins. Some creationists believe that these Mid-Oceanic Ridge fissures are possibly what remains of the scar from which all of this water burst forth. This theory is known as the hydroplate theory, which is one of the creationist models explaining the rapid changes that happened to the earth’s crust during the global Flood.

It is interesting to note that the very word ocean is translated from the original Hebrew word that literally means “that which burst forth from the womb.” Scientific discoveries heighten one’s appreciation for the Bible, especially when we find that every word and phrase has a specific meaning which fits perfectly with the world around us.

The above was quoted from Science and the Bible, p.21 (Grady) and In the Beginning, p.87-119 as depicted in A Closer Look At The Evidence by Richard & Tina Kleiss.

…the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broke up, and the windows of heaven were opened. And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights. (Genesis 7:11-12 KJV )

Have you considered. . . .

We could not breathe without the moon! Day in and day out earth’s moon causes the ocean tides. The moon’s gravity pulls upon the water as it orbits the earth resulting in the water bulging, and we experience high tides while some parts have low tides. As the earth rotates, the moon causes two high tides and two low tides every 24 hours. When these high tides wash up on shore. they drag back into the ocean anything in its path, including impurities. These impurities are then eaten by microbes deep within the oceans. The high tides are actually cleaning our shorelines! What if there was no moon? Our oceans would not have [sufficient]  tides resulting in stagnant and stinking oceans. Sea life would die, ocean plant life would also die. Much of earth’s oxygen comes from plants in the ocean. If sea plants died, we would not have sufficient oxygen for life. Our very breath is dependent on lunar tides!

. . . stop and consider God’s wonders. (Job 37:14)

Our Creator has given us an unusually large moon with enough gravity to pull on the ocean waters. He provides everything we need! Count your blessings.
