What Triggered the Flood?
God initiated the flood because of man's sin. At the end of the creation week, all that God created was "very good" (Genesis 1:31), so the flood was not inevitable at that time. In other words, the earth was not created with a "ticking time bomb." Nor was the universe created with killer comets, asteroids, or meteoroids aimed at earth. Indeed, their presence at the end of the creation week would not have been "very good"
THE CHOAS IN THE UNIVERSE IN DIFFERENT WAYS WAS THE RESULT OF THE WAR BETWEEN SATAN, THE DEMONS, AND THE HOLY ANGELS OF GOD; RESULTING IN THE EARTH BEING COVERED WITH WATER IN A VIOLET WAY; WHEN GOD BROUGHT FORTH THE WORK OF 6 DAYS, IT WAS INDEED GOOD - Keith Hunt
Later, because of the depth of man's sin (Genesis 6:5-6), God flooded the entire earth. We may never know just how the physical chain of events for the flood began, but the Bible gives some intriguing clues.
NO, THE EARTH WAS NOT COVERED WITH A GLOBAL FLOOD IN NOAH'S DAY - Keith Hunt
The hydroplate theory, summarized on pages 105-141, shows how a global flood, corresponding in every detail to the Genesis flood, easily explains otherwise mysterious features of the earth and solar system. This theory requires (1) a large volume of water under the earth's crust, and (2) pillars that partially supported the crust. Although the Bible speaks in several places of considerable subterranean water (see page 355), how and when did the pillars form?
NO PROBLEM WITH WATERS UNDER THE EARTH; OBVIOUSLY THERE IS AS MAN HAS DISCOVERED - Keith Hunt
First, visualize an important feature of the newly created, preflood earth. Imagine the entire earth's surface covered by a sandwich arrangement in which a horizontal layer of rock (which will become the earth's crust) has a layer of water above and below it. The rock layer is almost 10 miles thick; each water layer is about 3/4 mile thick. The water above this rock layer is surface water; the confined water below is subterranean water. If the rock layer were perfectly uniform in thickness and density, everything would be in balance. Equilibrium would exist.
No doubt variations existed in the rock's thickness and density. The heavier parts would sag (bend) downward, like an overloaded floor, causing additional surface water to flow into each depression. That added weight would increase each sag. More surface water would flow into the growing depressions, driving each sag even deeper.1
Some sagging rock would also be squeezed downward through the subterranean water, forming protrusions—or "pillars"—pressed against the chamber floor. This is because the pressure within the rock at the base of the rock layers thicker, denser portions would exceed the subterranean water's pressure pushing upward. If that pressure difference exceeded the rock's shear strength at any point, rock would "flow" downward, deforming like putty. (Compression tests on cylinders of rock subjected to high confining pressures, but larger axial loads, show that the rock cylinders deform like putty.)
WELL ALL IDEAS THAT COULD TODAY BE BASED UPON WHAT MAN HAS FOUND UNDER THE CRUST OF THE EARTH - Keith Hunt
Dry Land Appears.
At the end of the first creation day, Day 1, water covered the entire earth. On Day 2, God made a "raqia" that sharply separated ("badar") the liquid water ("mayim") above from the liquid water below. On Day 3, land rose out of the surface water, in preparation for the creation of plants, animals, and humans. (Water thicknesses are exaggerated to illustrate events of Days 2 and 3. Dimensions are estimates.)
Sequence is important.
If the Sun and Moon, created on Day 4, had existed before pillars formed, the Sun and Moon's powerful gravity would have greatly deformed the temporarily unstable crust. To understand why, see "Energy in the Subterranean Water" on pages 424-429. Pillars, the foundations of the earth, maintained stability.
Recognizing that a large amount of water was under the preflood crust, as the Bible states, is essential to understanding the flood. Our failure to understand basic physical aspects of the flood opened the door to evolution and a belief, by some, in a multibillion-year-old earth.
THE SUN AND MOON WERE NOT CREATED ON DAY 4; THEY ALREADY EXISTED. THE IDEAS OF BROWN DO NOT HOLD WATER WHEN IT COMES TO GOD, ALLOWING WHAT WAS ALLOWED IN DESTROYING THE EARTH IN THAT HEAVENLY WAR THE BIBLE SPEAKS OF, THE EARTH COVERED WITH WATER - GEN. 1:2; AND HOW GOD THEN BROUGHT FORTH THE LAND AND SEAS AND WATER UNDER THE CRUST. TO TRY TO FIX IT ALL IN BROWN'S MODERN SCIENCE MEANS NOTHING TO GOD; HE DOES THINGS THE WAY HE DOES THEM, AND DOES NOT HAVE TO OBEY MODERN SCIENCE - Keith Hunt
Downward protrusions (pillars) would grow like the downward flow in a lava lamp, except that the rock, being a solid instead of a liquid, had internal strength due to atomic bonding. The deeper the pillars went, the greater this pressure difference would become, so rock would "flow" even deeper until all pillars pressed against the chamber floor. Pillars carrying an excessive load would thicken and penetrate slightly into the chamber floor.
AGAIN BROWN'S IMAGINATION, MAYBE BASED UPON WHAT CAN BE SEEN UNDER SOME PARTS OF THE CRUST OF EARTH TODAY; WATER BEING UNDER THE EARTH THERE IS NO QUESTION, BUT ACCORDING TO BROWN'S IDEAS, BIG QUESTIONS - Keith Hunt
Likewise, the thinner, less-dense portions of the rock layer would have risen up out of the water, forming continents. Keep in mind that the confined subterranean water had essentially a fixed volume. Therefore, as rock sagged downward and as pillars were squeezed downward, this fixed volume of subterranean water forced the thinner parts of the rock layer upward.
THINNER PARTS….. SPECULATIONS….. GOD BRINGS FORTH, BROUGHT FORTH THE LAND AS HE DESIRED - Keith Hunt
If, on Day 2 of the creation week, our "sandwich" encircled the earth like the outer three rings of an onion, water would cover the entire earth. In the following hours, the thinner portions of the crust would rise out of the surface water and become dry land. Water would drain into depressions. This seems to be what happened on Day 3 (Genesis 1:9-10). Water covered the entire earth, then "God said, 'Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear'; and it was so. And God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas;"
NO BIG DEAL; GOD FORMED THE LANDS AND THE SEAS, WITH RIVERS AND LAKES, AND WATERS UNDER THE EARTH - Keith Hunt
Genesis 1:9 says that the waters below the heavens were gathered into one place (i.e., one big ocean). Why, then, in the next verse did God call the collected waters "seas"— plural? Answer: Multiple seas were honeycombed below the crust. The Interpreter's Bible explains:
"Seas" embraces more than the waters upon the face of the earth; it includes also the (supposed) subterranean waters upon which the earth was believed to rest... and the circumfluent ocean, upon which the pillars of the firmament stood? Psalm 24:2a specifically states that God "founded it [the earth] upon the seas"
SEA OR SEAS - IT'S HOW YOU LOOK AT IT - THE SEAS ARE ONE LARGE CONNECTED BODY OF WATER ON THE EARTH [INCLUDING WHAT GOES UNDER THE EARTH] - ALL ONE; YET "SEAS" PLURAL, AS DIFFERENT PARTS WE GIVE DIFFERENT NAMES TO - ATLANTIC, PACIFIC, INDIAN - OCEANS AND ETC. - Keith Hunt
Interestingly, Day 2 was the only creation day in which the Bible does not expressly say God saw that day's work was "good" Certainly, nothing bad was done on the second day, because at the end of the creation week, God saw that all He had made was "very good" Apparently, the second day's activity was not completed until Day 3.
A TECHNICALITY THAT REALLY MEANS NOTHING, FOR AS STATED AT THE END, GOD LOOKED AT IT ALL AND IT ALL WAS "VERY GOOD" - Keith Hunt
Now we can see why. On Day 2, after the crust was created with liquid water above and below it, the crust began to deform. Heavier portions sagged and squeezed down pillars, while lighter portions rose out of the water. On Day 3, after the pillar structure had been established (the foundations of the earth were laid), God stated in Genesis 1:10 that "it was good." Later on Day 3, after vegetation was created, God made a similar statement. Thus, Day 3 was the only creation day in which two "it was good" pronouncements were made.
OKAY A TECHNICALITY THAT MEANS NOTHING PER SE AS TO PROVE ANY DOCTRINE - Keith Hunt
Psalm 104:3, in describing Day 2, 3 states (with my interpretations in brackets), "He lays the beams [pillars] of His upper chambers [the crust] in the [subterranean] waters" By Day 3, surface water had drained into depressions, forming dry land—a "good" condition (Genesis 1:10) necessary for the life God would create next.
ALL BROWN'S THOUGHTS MAYBE BASED UPON WHAT HE LOOKS AT TODAY IN SOME PARTS OF THE WORLD; BUT THE TECHNICALITY OF HOW GOD DID IT IS NOT IMPORTANT, THE FACT HE DID IT IS THE IMPORTANT THING - Keith Hunt
Peter also seems to describe these events in II Peter 3:3-6. He states that in the latter days mockers will not understand that, "the earth was formed out of water and by water, through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water"
WATER IS THE THEME OF PETER NOT THE TIME FRAME OR TRYING TO PROVE NOAH'S FLOOD WAS GLOBAL - FORMING AND DESTRUCTION IS THE THEME IN PETER'S MIND; SOME NOT BELIEVING THE PAST FORMING AND DESTRUCTION; SO MANY AT THE END WILL NOT BELIEVE THE FORMING AND DESTRUCTION TO COME ON EARTH - Keith Hunt
This is consistent with the following interpretation: On Day 2, a nearly horizontal crust, or "expanse," was formed in the midst of the liquid water covering the earth (Genesis 1:2,6,7,9). On Day 3, lighter portions of the crust rose out of the water, causing water above the rising crust to flow into depressions (Genesis 1:10). In other words, the earth (its crust) was formed out of (rose out of) surface water and was formed by pressure from subterranean water. Some might incorrectly think "forming the earth out of water" implies alchemy—water (H20) was changed into Si02, (Mg,Fe)2Si04, and a host of other minerals that comprise rock (Even if alchemy occurred, one would not say rock formed by water.) Actually, "out of" is used in a spatial sense. The King James Version clearly conveys this idea of the land rising out of water: "... the earth standing out of the water…"
THE EARTH WAS COVERED BY WATER; GOD BROUGHT FORTH THE LAND; THERE WAS A DIVIDING OF LAND AND SEAS; NO NEED TO SPECULATE HOW IT WAS DONE….. IT SIMPLY WAS DONE BY THE COMMAND OF GOD - Keith Hunt
About 2,000 years later,4 the water below the crust burst forth as "the fountains of the great deep" combined with the surface water, and, as Peter wrote, flooded and destroyed earth in a global cataclysm. The Greek word katakluzo, from which we get our word "cataclysm," is translated as "flooded" in II Peter 3:6. In describing Noah's flood, the Bible never uses the normal Greek or Hebrew words for flood. Noah's flood was much more; it was an unparalleled, global cataclysm—earth's defining geological event.
NO IT WAS NOT! NOAH'S FLOOD THOUGH SPECTACULAR AND LARGE, WAS NOT GLOBAL….. BROWN AND OTHERS LIKE HIM JUST DO NOT SEE ALL THE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS AROUND A SUPPOSED GLOBAL FLOOD AT NOAH'S TIME. SEE THE STUDIES "NOAH'S FLOOD WAS NOT UNIVERSAL" - Keith Hunt
The complex Hebrew word raqia is usually translated in modern times as "expanse" or "firmament." Pages 362-370 explain why raqia is sometimes identified with "heavens" but in other contexts refers to earth's preflood crust.
Pressure from the compressed subterranean water supported most of the crust's weight; pillars supported the rest. Every 12 hours, tidal effects, caused primarily by the Moon's gravity, lifted the subsurface water (and, therefore, the earth's crust), just as tides lift ocean surfaces today. At low tides, the crust settled. The pressure each pillar exerted on the chamber floor increased and decreased twice daily. These loose, or flexible, contacts could be described as "sockets." Smaller tides also occur in the solid earth.
SOUNDS LIKE BROWN WAS THERE WHEN GOD WAS DOING ALL THIS….. PURE SPECULATION. GOD DID IT AND THAT SHOULD BE ENOUGH - Keith Hunt
The Bible says the earth was founded on pillars. Psalm 75:3b says, "It is I [God] Who have firmly set its [the earth's] pillars."
WHAT GOD MEANT BY "PILLARS" COULD BE UP FOR GRABS; MAY NOT BE AT ALL WHAT BROWN SAYS; WHAT GOD MEANS BY PILLARS IS MAYBE NOT WHAT WE WANT TO MAKE IT - Keith Hunt
In Job 38, God demonstrates His authority by giving Job the most difficult science examination of all time. In verses 4-6, God asks Job, "Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding, ... On what were its bases sunk?" This word, "bases," is translated in all 54 other places in the Bible as "pedestals" or "sockets" which held pillars.
AGAIN WHAT GOD MEANS BY "PEDESTALS" "SOCKETS" - MAY NOT BE WHAT WE HUMANS IMAGINE - Keith Hunt
Two verses later, in Job 38:8-11, God seems to speak of a confined sea of water that burst forth. Then a dark cloud of water vapor apparently enveloped the exploding sea. Or who enclosed the sea with doors, when, bursting forth, it went out from the womb, when I made a cloud its garment, and thick darkness its swaddling band, and I placed boundaries on it, and set a bolt and doors, and I said, "Thus far you shall come, but no farther; and here shall your proud waves stop."
JUST POETIC LANGUAGE FOR THE SIMPLE FACT THAT GOD SET THE SEAS IN PLACE; THEY HAD BOUNDARIES. WE SHOULD READ NOTHING MORE INTO IT THAT THIS SIMPLE FACT - GOD SET THE LANDS AND THE SEAS - Keith Hunt
Ancient extrabibhcal writings, although not having the authority of biblical passages, also describe this pillar structure within the subterranean water. As one example, the British Museum's The Book of the Cave of Treasures, dated at about A.D. 300-599, states:
And on the Third Day God commanded the waters that were below the firmament to be gathered together in one place, and the dry land to appear. And when the covering of water had been rolled up from the face of the earth, the earth showed itself to be in an unsettled and unstable state, that is to say, it was of a damp or moist and yielding nature. And the waters were gathered together into seas that were under the earth and within it, and upon it. And God made the earth from below, corridors and shafts, and channels for the passage of the waters;... Now, as for the earth, the lower part of it is like unto a thick sponge, for it resteth on the waters.5 [emphasis added]
WELL I'M SURE THE ANCIENTS KNEW THERE WAS WATERS UNDER THE CRUST OF THE EARTH HERE AND THERE; RIVERS DISAPPEAR UNDER THE EARTH; THEN RIVERS COME FROM WITHIN THE EARTH; IT HAPPENS LOCALLY APPEARING SMALL AT TIMES, BUT COMMON SENSE TELLS YOU THERE IS PROBABLY HUGE LAKES OR SEAS HERE AND THERE UNDER THE CRUST OF THE EARTH. SO WHAT ELSE IS NEW? Keith Hunt
The Bible often speaks of "the foundations of the earth"? On Day 3, the earth's crust was literally established, or set (using pillars), on its foundation. Had this not happened, the crust would have continually tottered (or oscillated, like the surface of an earth-size water bed). Perhaps this is why the psalmist wrote, "He established the earth upon its foundations, so that it will not totter forever and ever" (Psalm 104:5). Only by understanding some basic physics and the role of subterranean water, will these matters— and the global flood—be clear.
MAYBE SOME MODERN SCIENCE CAN HELP, BUT THE FACT IS GOD SET THE LANDS AND THE SEAS; ONLY EARTHQUAKES AND ICE CAPS, SINCE HAVE CHANGED PARTS OF THE LAND BOUNDARIES, HERE AND THERE - Keith Hunt
"On the same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open" (Genesis 7:11) On one day, the crust ruptured and the flood began. Water from the fountains fell as rain. Subterranean water flowed with unimaginable force horizontally through the subterranean chambers and up through the globe-encircling rupture. Pillars were crushed into fragments by the increasing crustal loads they carried. Each pillar's collapse produced huge waves in the surface water and pressure pulses in the subterranean water. Rock fragments, accelerated into space by astounding energy sources in the fountains of the great deep, became meteoroids.6 Thus the pillars, or foundations of the world, collapsed. This may be what Psalm 18:15 refers to when it says, "Then the channels of water appeared, and the foundations of the world were laid bare"
SURE THERE WAS WATER FROM BELOW THE CRUST COMING FORTH, IN THE FLOOD OF NOAH, BUT TO TRY AND PUT THIS ALL IN A GLOBAL CONTEXT, DOES NOT FIT WITH OTHER AND ALL QUESTIONS AND OBJECTIONS, AND COMMON SENSE LOGIC, THAT SURELY DISPROVE A GLOBAL FLOOD IN NOAH'S DAY - Keith Hunt
Rupture Mechanism: Tidal Pumping.
But why did the pressure in the subterranean water increase enough to rupture the crust?
Each tidal cycle, driven by the Suns and Moon's gravity, stretched and compressed the pillars.7 This cyclic compression—tidal pumping—twice a day for about 2,000 years, heated and expanded the pillar's and subterranean water, steadily increasing the pressure in the chamber.
As temperatures rose throughout the chamber, the water became supercritical water and the pillars and the crust weakened. This caused more pillars to flow down from the hot ceiling, further increasing the subterranean water's pressure. About the time the flood began, failure of the first few pillars increased the load on the remaining pillars, so all pillars collapsed, much like a falling house of cards. Consequently, pressures within the chamber fluctuated wildly.
HUMMMM…. AGAIN SOUNDS LIKE BROWN WAS THERE WITH GOD, WHEN THE FLOOD OF NOAH'S DAY BEGAN - Keith Hunt
How hot might the high-pressure water have become? Question 5 on page 298 explains why some meteorites reached temperatures of at least 1,300°E Some minerals in other meteorites were even hotter,8 a fact that perplexes meteorite experts, because meteorites came from supercold outer space, where temperatures are almost absolute zero (-460°F). This heating was not due to impacts or falling through earth's atmosphere, because the heating occurred not just on meteorite surfaces, but throughout meteorites. Therefore, if meteorites came from pillars, as proposed on pages 295-313, then pillars and the subterranean water exceeded 1,300°F.
NOTE "AS PROPOSED" - BROWN WAS IN FACT NOT THERE WHEN THIS ALL HAPPENED, SO IT'S ALL HUMAN SPECULATION, FOR WHATEVER TEACHING YOU WANT TO TEACH - Keith Hunt
Because the lighter (and higher) portions of the crust were supported entirely by subterranean water, primarily the continents and preflood mountains sank as the supercritical water escaped during the flood phase. Therefore, the flooded earth resulted as much from sinking continents as from rising water.
WHATTTTT!!!! NOW I'VE HEARD IT ALL!!!! THE BIBLE SAYS NO SUCH THING!!! PURELY HUMAN REASONING, FROM A SCIENTIFIC MIND THAT HAS RUN-A-MUCK….. I GUESS WE CAN SAY ANYTHING WHEN YOU HAVE A PhD AND PEOPLE WILL SWALLOW IT. TALK ABOUT TRYING TO PROVE A DOCTRINE WITH MAN MADE IDEAS, THIS TAKES THE CAKE - Keith Hunt
Genesis 7:20 says that the flood waters covered all preflood mountains by 15 cubits. Today, mountain heights vary by thousands of feet, so why did many, if not all, preflood mountains have about the same elevation? (Some commentators, adding words not in the Bible, say that "at least" 15 cubits of water were above all the earth's mountains. Others say that the text means the Ark, whose height was 30 cubits, must have been only half submerged and did not run into mountain peaks.) The explanation becomes clear if we recognize that: (a) today's
IN THE BOX
Something to Think About: "Fire in Waters"
So much heat was generated within the pillars that they would have glowed, as incandescent filaments in lamps do today. Even some burning may have occurred in the subterranean water. The sight within the otherwise pitch-black subterranean chamber would have been eerie: hot, glowing pillars (part of the raqid) surrounded by high-pressure, burning supercritical water. An apt description of this might be "fire in waters." One of the most famous and revered Hebrew scholars of all time, Rabbi Solomon Yitzchaki (A.D. 1040-1105) of France, proposed that the correct translation for Genesis 1:8a is "And God called the expanse fire in waters," instead of the normal "And God called the expanse heaven" The reason may surprise you. Before A.D. 700, written Hebrew contained only consonants. Vowel points were then inserted to standardize pronunciations. For example, the meaning of…. n th bgnng Gd crtd th hvns nd th rth…. may be clear, but the phrase is difficult to pronounce (and, therefore, to remember). If other vowels had been inserted in "hvns," the word would have a different meaning today. Rabbi Yitzchaki, in his eleventh century Rashi Commentary, pointed out that with different vowel points the original Hebrew word we now think of as meaning "heaven" in Genesis 1:8a would mean "fire in waters." While in Jerusalem on 28 June 1990, I met for two hours with Michael Klein, Dean of Hebrew Union College. My question was, "What did raqia (expanse) and shamayim (heaven) mean in Genesis 1:8a when Moses wrote Genesis?" To my surprise, he suggested Rabbi Yitzchaki's translation, which I had previously studied. Shamayim is a compound of the words fire (esh) and liquid water (mayim). After I briefly explained the hydroplate theory, Dean Kline said that raqia (as opposed to "raqia of the heavens") might well have been the earth's crust—appropriately called "fire in waters." You decide.
THE KING JAMES SCHOLARS ARE CORRECT….. JEWISH SCHOLARS ARE OFTEN OFF THE WALL AND OUT IN LEFT FIELD AND FROM PLANET PLUTO. IT IS VERY SIMPLE TO UNDERSTAND AS THE KJV TRANSLATORS RENDERED THE HEBREW OF GENESIS ONE - Keith Hunt
mountains were formed by completely different mechanisms than those on the preflood earth, and (b) the earth was founded on and spread out above liquid water (Psalms 24:2, 104:3, and 136:6). Here's why the flood waters covered the preflood mountains by 15 cubits:
On Day 3 of the creation week, the higher a continent rose out of the surface water, the more pressure it exerted on the subterranean water directly below. To demonstrate this buoyancy effect, support a large rock under water with one hand. Notice how the pressure on your hand increases as you slowly lift the rock out of the water. Therefore, as the land rose higher, it would have risen more slowly, giving preflood mountains similar heights.
OH SO NOW BROWN WANTS TO TELL YOU HOW GOD DID THINGS…. WELL OF COURSE HE WAS THERE WITH HIM, SEEING IT ALL [TONGUE IN CHEEK SPEAKING]….. GOD CREATED THE LANDS AND THE MOUNTAIN RANGES AS HE SAW FIT, IN THE WAY HE SAW FIT, AND NONE OF IT HAS TO AGREE WITH THE MODERN SCIENCE OF MEN - Keith Hunt
About 2,000 years later, as the flood waters rose and continents sank, this same buoyancy effect caused preflood mountains not yet covered by water to exert greater pressure on the water still under the crust. This reduced their height and lifted lower mountains, further equalizing mountain heights above the rising water—just as Genesis 7:20 states.
YA ALL MAN MADE IDEAS TO HOLD TO A GLOBAL NOAH'S FLOOD; I MEAN THESE GUYS WILL DO ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING TO STICK TO A UNIVERSAL NOAH'S FLOOD TEACHING - Keith Hunt
As the first days and weeks of the flood passed, pillars were increasingly crushed, and more and more of the crust rested on the subterranean chamber floor, slowing the water's escape. The vertical walls on each side of the rupture were almost 10 miles high. Because the rock's pressure in the bottom half of each wall exceeded its crushing strength, the unsupported, unconfined walls continually crumbled—for 150 days (Genesis 7:24). During that time, the high-velocity fountains of the great deep removed that rubble, widening the rupture hundreds of miles.
WOW, BROWN JUST HAD TO BE THERE….. I MEAN HE TALKS LIKE HE KNOWS EXACTLY HOW IT ALL HAPPENED; GUESS WHEN YOU HAVE A PhD YOU GOT TO SHOW OTHERS YOU'VE FIGURED IT ALL OUT…. EXACTLY HOW GOD DID IT; YEP HE MUST BE WAY OLDER THAN HE LOOKS, AS HE SAW GOD DO ALL THIS AS HE DESCRIBES - Keith Hunt
Mass deep in the mantle shifted slightly toward these relatively unloaded portions of the chamber floor. Suddenly, the chamber floor buckled upward beneath the widened rupture, first forming the Mid-Atlantic portion of the Mid-Oceanic Ridge. The crust slid downhill on lubricating water, away from the rising Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Sliding continental plates—hydroplates—crashed and compressed in that "compression event"
YEP HE SAW IT ALL, AND HE'S TELLING US - Keith Hunt
Weaker portions of the hydroplates crushed, thickened, and buckled. In doing so, the new, postflood continents rose out of the flood waters, allowing water to drain into newly opened—and temporarily very deep—ocean basins. Buckled mountains also formed, as shown in Figure 49 on page 112. For each cubic mile of land that rose out of the flood waters, one cubic mile of flood water could drain. (Note: Today, the volume of all land above sea level is only one-tenth of the volume of all water on earth.) Other dramatic consequences in the Pacific, including formation of gigantic ocean trenches, are discussed on pages 143-167.
Sliding rock-on-rock contacts quickly became molten rock-water mixtures. This is why magma contains a surprising amount of dissolved water, why a thin saltwater layer appears to be under all continents at the depth predicted by the hydroplate theory,9 and why a thick, water-laden layer appears to be under the Tibetan Plateau.10
