New Evidence for Oceans of Water Deep in the Earth
New Evidence for Oceans of Water Deep in the Earth - Northwestern Now
EVANSTON, Ill. --- Researchers from Northwestern University and the University of New Mexico report evidence for potentially oceans worth of water deep beneath the United States. Though not in the familiar liquid form -- the ingredients for water are bound up in rock deep in the Earth’s mantle -- the discovery may represent the planet’s largest water reservoir.
The presence of liquid water on the surface is what makes our blue planet habitable, and scientists have long been trying to figure out just how much water may be cycling between Earth’s surface and interior reservoirs through plate tectonics.
Hi all,
I'm starting to see the argument that this new discovery is "proof" of the biblical flood, creeping into other forums.
Or science could continue to prove creationism like finding under earth oceans. One of the arguments against the great flood has been where did all the water come from and where did it go.
Now they have a explanation for that, although that will be ignored or debunked by their logical thinking. If you look for god you will see his hand in every aspect of creation, if you choose to believe that everything is a random chance, well I guess that's easy enough too. People see what they want to see always have always will.
For me this more as evidence of how the Earth formed, it's composition and Earth's water cycle. I see no evidence that this water could have magically flooded the planet then receded proving any global flood.
I do see YEC's and their like jumping all over this as "proof" of the flood. In this thread I would like to hear your agruments and see if we can't pull this weed before it takes over the garden. Or do any creationist here feel this is proof of the flood?
