Day Three – Terraforming
Evening: restoring the work of the morning
“And God said,
- Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place,
- and let the [singular] dry land appear…”
Alfred Wegener (1880–1930), a German meteorologist and geophysicist…observed that the continents of South America and Africa looked like they would fit together remarkably well…similar fossils were found on continents separated by oceans, additional evidence that perhaps the landforms had once been joined. He hypothesized that all of the modern-day continents had previously been clumped together in a supercontinent he called Pangaea (from ancient Greek, meaning “all lands” or “all the Earth”). Over millions of years, Wegener suggested, the continents had drifted apart. He did not know what drove this movement [so proposed millions of years to support the elitist theory of evolution…
Only decades later, in the 1960s…technologies adapted from warfare made it possible to more thoroughly study Earth…With seismometers, researchers discovered that earthquakes tended to occur in specific places rather than equally all over Earth. And scientists studying the seafloor with magnetometers found…alternating stripes of rock recorded a flip-flopping of Earth’s magnetic field.
Together, these observations were consistent with a new theory proposed by researchers who built on Wegener’s original idea of continental drift—the theory of plate tectonics. According to this theory, Earth’s crust is broken into roughly 20 sections called tectonic plates on which the continents ride. When these plates press together and then move suddenly, energy is released in the form of earthquakes…Plate tectonics also explains the stripes of rock on the seafloor with alternating magnetic properties: As buoyant, molten rock rises up from deep within Earth, it emerges from the space between spreading tectonic plates and hardens, creating a ridge…some minerals within rocks record the orientation of Earth’s magnetic poles and this orientation flips every 100,000 years or so [another circular reasoning in the evolutionary paradigm, as this timing can’t be proven], rocks near ocean ridges exhibit alternating magnetic stripes.
Plate tectonics…has gained widespread acceptance among scientists. This shift from one theory to another is an example of the scientific process: As more observations are made and measurements are collected, scientists revise their theories to be more accurate and consistent with the natural world.
By running computer simulations of how Earth’s tectonic plates are [currently] moving, researchers can estimate where the planet’s continents will likely be in the future. Because tectonic plates move very slowly [currently]—only a few centimeters per year, on average—it takes a long time to observe changes. Scientists have found that the planet’s continents will likely again be joined together in about 250 million years. Researchers have dubbed this future continental configuration “Pangaea Proxima.”
However, Christopher Scotese, one of the scientists who developed these simulations, cautions that it is difficult to predict exactly how the continents will be arranged in millions of years. “We don’t really know the future, obviously,” Scotese told NASA.
Nice to hear from an honest scientist. Now from ancient astronomers.
the early Jesuit scholars were the first Europeans to gain access to the Chinese ‘book of all knowledge’ from ancient times…4,320-volume collection told of the repercussions of mankind’s rebellion against the gods: “The Earth was shaken to its foundations. The sky sank lower towards the north. The sun, moon, and stars changed their motions. The Earth fell to pieces and the waters in its bosom rushed upwards with violence and overflowed the Earth.”
“the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under,” (Genesis 49:25)
Oh now that’s interesting.
Scientists have long speculated that water is trapped in a rocky layer of the Earth’s mantle located…at depths between 250 miles and 410 miles. Jacobsen and Schmandt are the first to provide direct evidence that there may be water in this area of the mantle, known as the “transition zone,” on a regional scale….
“Geological processes on the Earth’s surface, such as…volcanoes, are an expression of what is going on inside the Earth, out of our sight…I think we are finally seeing evidence for a whole-Earth water cycle…Scientists have been looking for this missing deep water for decades.”
This is consistent with the ancient Biblical account of a massive flood covering the entire earth from water sources both above and below the earth.
“In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were 1) all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and 2) the windows of heaven were opened.”(Genesis 7:11)
If just one percent of the weight of mantle rock located in the transition zone is H2O, that would be equivalent to nearly three times the amount of water in our oceans, the researchers said.
- Scientists have been looking for missing water for decades
- Findings will aid understanding of how Earth formed
Consistent with heavy bombardment by asteroids:
This water is not in a form familiar to us — it is not liquid, ice or vapor. This fourth form is water trapped inside the molecular structure of the minerals in the mantle rock…
Rocks in the transition zone can hold a lot of H2O, but rocks in the…lower mantle can hold almost none. The…is forced out when it goes deeper (into the lower mantle) and forms a higher-pressure mineral…which cannot absorb the water. This causes the rock at the boundary between the transition zone and lower mantle to partially melt
“For I know that the LORD is great, and that our Lord is above all gods. Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he 1) in heaven, and 2) in earth, 3) in the seas, and 4) all deep places.” (Psalm 135:5-6)
Day Three Morning – Vegetation
And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind” (Genesis 1:11-13)
Earth organisms use sunlight as the source of energy in the cycle of E=mc2. So Day Four is where 24 hour periods of time begin.
Day Four – Sun, Moon and Stars
“And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.” (Genesis 1:16-19)
Day Five – Fish and Fowl
“And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.” (Genesis 1:20)
Night: This would indicate massive sudden die-offs, which we should expect to find as fossils. There is geological evidence of catastrophism.
Morning: Survival, or resurrection, or remaking of some, as happened through the flood of Noah.
“And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.”
Day Six – Land Animals & Mankind
“And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so…and God saw that it was good.”
Night: opposed by rebel forces. Again, this would indicate massive die-offs, confirmed by the fossil record.
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion.” (Genesis 1:26-31)
And then YHVH stepped back and let humanity take charge of protecting their Earth and their families.
Obviously, we humans need all the help we can get.
