Empirical evidences for World Wide Flood.

This will be undeniable evidence that any creationist can use to prove that the Flood did create a lot of what we see, and not “Deep Time” like the evolutionists claim. I will try to put all the information in an order that is easy to understand along with being as brief as possible without leaving the important stuff out.

  • Is there enough water for a World Wide Flood? Yes there is. In the past few years using seismic tools. They have found that a mineral called ” wadsleyite” holds 2% water by weight. That may not sound like much until you realize how much wadsleyite exists in the upper mantle of the earth. Figures show that 2% would work out to be somewhere around 30 oceans worth added to the water that we already know exists. And this has been tested in more than one place by more than one scientist which makes the results observable and repeatable which is empirical evidence. Which means evolutionists can no longer deny the possibility that a flood of this magnitude could happen.

  • Can the waters from the flood lay out the Geologic Column as we see it today? The evolutionist side has no observable mechanism to do this so all they have is the claim that “Deep Time” did it. But water will sort sediments and is observable and repeatable. The video below shows this and shows how every sediment pattern formed that exists today. And this is observable and repeatable which makes it empirical evidence. Evolutionists have nothing. Empirical evidence beats the “Deep Time” claim any day.

Here is a more simple method using a sand picture that shows how sand will always layer in water.

  • Did the World Wide Flood sort the Fossil Record as we see it? The sure way to tell is this: Aquatic life already live in the water. So during the World Wide Flood they would not be fighting to get air to stay alive. What this means is that as the waters from inside the earth came up, and brought up a lot of sediments with it. The water would darken and any aquatic life caught in this would be buried right where they live. So what this means is that we should actually see a pattern to the fossils.
    1) Bottom dwellers get buried first by the sediments.
    2) Mid dwellers buried second by the sediments.
    3) Top dwellers buried last by the sediments.

So as we can see claiming that oil takes millions of years to form was based more on an assumption than fact.

  • If the flood happened and formed coal then coal should not take 60 millions years to form as science claims. An experiment was done on a piece of wood where it was subject to heat that was hot enough to create steam. And water was added to make the steam. The piece of wood was subjected to these conditions for 2 weeks. And in 2 weeks the coalifacation process started as seen in the pic below.
  • Challenge to YECs? Part 2

    This is continued from part 1 https://yecheadquarters.org/?p=1286.

    Here is an example of what happens with repelling poles in this video:

    How do you get layers with repelling poles to stay together? You don’t. So it’s not polar flips that caused this. Besides, what is going to have more of an effect on the next layers poles? 1) A magnet pole that is 1,000 of miles away? 2) Or one that is butted right up against it that has a magnetic field of it’s own?

    • Astrophysical observations show that the rotation of the earth has been slowing (and the number of days per year has been decreasing) since it first formed.  Calculations based on these observations show that there is a very close agreement between the predicted number of days in a year, the measured number of days based on coral growth characteristics, and the measured age of fossil corals.  The results are consistent with fossil coral ages extending back some 400 million years ago.  How do YECs account for these correlations?
    • Response: This is basically the same question asked earlier about corals it’s just done in a different way. I will answer this the same way I answered the other question. Old earth believers are taking the average growth to calculate this. Which means corals grow at different rates. No one know the rate of coral growth from the past so basically this is an assumption based on something that cannot be proven. Today the conditions for corals is not favorable and many are dying. Do you think corals will grow normally in unfavorable conditions? No they want. So the past was more favorable for growth from which it is easy to conclude that corals grew much faster in the past.
    • Evidence gathered from core samples taken by the Glomar Challenger show that the Mediterranean Sea has been subjected to repeated cycles of drying and re-flooding over a period of millions of years.  Analysis of the core samples reveals a geologic history that involved multiple cycles of deposition of sediments, compression of the sediments into stone, erosion of the stone into canyons (some larger than the modern Grand Canyon), and reburial of these canyons under thousands of feet of new sediments.  Contained within these sediments are multiple layers of evaporites and weathered interfaces that take thousands of years to accumulate and that can only form under exposed conditions.  How does the YEC model explain this evidence?
    • Response: The problem here is this is based on figures that do not include the flood. So why would they support the flood? And some of what was asked here has already been answered in previous responses. It seems that the more I go into these questions the more they are the same just asked in a different fashion.
    • Over 160 impact structures that were formed by the collision of extra-terrestrial objects with the earth have been identified. The vast majority of the impacts that formed these massive structures, which occur at various depths in the geologic column above the so-called Flood basement rock, were not recorded by humans.  Considering that numerous other earth-altering events (earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, etc.) have been regularly recorded throughout human history, it seems odd that so few of these impacts were noted in historical documents if, as YECs contend, humans have been present on earth since shortly after its inception. Some YECs argue that most of these impacts occurred during the chaos of the Flood, and were, therefore, not recorded.  How could these collisions of nuclear bomb proportions have occurred during the Flood without causing massive waves that would have smashed the wooden Ark like a toy?
    • Response: How can one know that these meteors would have nuclear bomb proportions? This is actually an assumption based on making the YEC model not work. But let’s take a closer look. The meteors were only needed to bring down the canopy. And while the meteors entered our atmosphere where the barometric pressures were double because of the canopy, there would have been much more friction to slow down the speed of the meteor before it hit. Also taking into account that the canopy itself slowed these meteors down somewhat upon impact means the meteors back then would not had hit with the same forcible impact as they would today. So nuclear bomb proportions is over kill. Of course when one is looking to discredit something to the emf degree over kill is always in order.
    • Oil contains certain chemicals that derive from the organic materials from which it was formed.  The distribution of these chemicals in oil correlates with the sequence of these organic precursor materials as they appeared in the geologic column.  For example, there is no oleanane in oil deposits older than the last epoch of the Cretaceous because the angiosperms from which this chemical is derived did not exist prior to that time.  A similar time line exists for chemicals in oil such as 24-norcholestane (which is not present until the appearance of the diatoms) and vitrain (which is not present  until the appearance of land plants).  How is this relationship explained in terms of the Flood model?
    • Response: Oil does not take millions of years to form. In fact that claim is based upon assumptions made about the geologic column. There is a process that is done on turkey and chicken by products (stuff that’s usually thrown away), that when the near to same conditions of how crude oil is found in underground is applied twice, the by products break down to form a petroleum product known as bio-diesel (a form of oil that is used as fuel) in about 2 hours. And there are many things that can be broke down to make this. They are currently working on a process to turn tires into bio diesel or gas. They will do the same with common trash and one company is reportedly doing this with raw sewage. So it’s not what existed, its what broke down to make it. There is also what’s called hydrothermal oil. The video below shows oil being made by nature right before your eyes.

    • The Atacama desert in Chile contains river beds that have not had water running in them for 120,000 years.  Some areas of this desert have been in a hyper-arid condition for at least 20 million years.  How can these facts be accounted for in terms of the YEC model?
    • Response: It would first have to be ascertained how the ages of what history is claimed, was concluded. Asking a vague question with no real information won’t get a good answer. But since it is this way I will ask questions on what I see in the questions. 1) How does one know that the river beds have had no running water 120,000 years? Since there is no information on how I can only conclude that this was assumed. And the claim about 20 million years, same question.

    What is the mechanism for the Geologic Column layering?

    An observable process I can show here is where sand pictures sort sand into layers making art as show below in the videos.

    And there is also a repeatable mechanism for horizontal layering. This is also testable and repeatable with the same results which makes it empirical. Here is a video demonstrating this.

    So we have repeatable (empirical) mechanisms for both horizontal and vertical layering. Mechanism which support the flood causing the layering, not millions of years.

    Pangea in the bible?

    The Pangea (link) is the idea that all of the land masses were one, and there was no separation of the continents at one time. Over a period of time the continents did separate to what we see today. The only problem with this idea is what would allow the land masses to move so far away from one another, and does this mean they will collide again in the future killing almost all life?

    In every illustration you see on how Pangea works, our planet stays the same in size meaning there was another force doing this. Science claims that it was subduction that caused this. What if the Bible actually gives us a mechanism that makes Pangea work? Neil Adams (link) actually had the right idea while trying to explain this but was trying to make it fit the old earth (4.5 billion years old) time-line. Here is an example of his idea in this animation he created. He also narrates it.

    As you watch this, the mechanism that makes it work is the shrinking and expanding of our planet. You will notice this, as you watch the video, by looking at the stars nearest to earth. As the planet shrinks, and the land masses come together, more stars appear. As the planet expands, and the land masses separate, some of the stars disappear. So what would cause the planet to be smaller in the beginning, then larger in the end? Water. Even in the old earth explanation, water did not always exist on earth. Now not only do we have oceans of water, we have water underneath the crust as well.

    Is there enough water under the earth’s crust to cause such a huge expansion of the continents? We have all been taught that the only water that exist under the crust is little compared to the oceans above. But what is not being told is a discovery of enough water that would equal 30 of our oceans.

    Suddenly, there was somewhere to put water deep inside the mantle. “You can have oceans and oceans of water stored in the transition zone,” says Jay Bass of the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. “It’s sopping wet stuff.” Researchers think wadsleyite can hold as much as 3·3 per cent water by weight. It may not sound like much, but there could be an awful lot of wadsleyite.

    According to Smyth, models of the mantle’s composition suggest that at the depths where wadsleyite is stable, between half and three-quarters of the material is the right stuff for making this mineral. “If the region between 400 and 525 kilometers were, say, 60 per cent wadsleyite, and that phase was saturated at 3·3 weight per cent, that’s ten oceans of water,” says Smyth. But Dan Frost, an experimental petrologist at the Carnegie Institution of Washington’s Geophysical Laboratory in Washington DC, thinks the mantle could contain even more water.

    Frost says that solidified lava that has erupted at mid-ocean ridges contains glass that can be analyzed for water content. His research team has calculated how much water the lava’s parent material in the mantle must have contained. “It ends up being between 100 and 500 parts per million,” he says. And if the whole mantle contained 500 parts per million of water, Frost calculates that would be the equivalent of 30 oceans of water.

    Scientists scanning the deep interior of Earth have found evidence of a vast water reservoir beneath eastern Asia that is at least the volume of the Arctic Ocean.
    The discovery marks the first time such a large body of water has found in the planet’s deep mantle.

    Showing that there is enough water under the crust, and knowing that the earth did not always have water, means subduction did not do this. To fit 30 oceans of water under the crust = the planet earth “has to expand” to receive it. Unless someone wants to ignore the laws of physics.

    To sum it up so far:
    1) We have the idea of Pangea and how the earth’s landmasses separated. Which includes subduction. But no evidence that subduction did this only the idea that it did. And why do they only teach it as the only possibility? Because it supports the “current accepted theory”. Water doing this supports the worldwide flood, the Bible, and creation, that does not conform to evolution and all of it’s supporting ideas.
    2) We have the idea of water making the landmasses expand. And their is “evidence” that enough water to do this actually exists (30 oceans worth) under the earth’s crust. And that it’s “already there” proves that it did expand because of the water not because of subduction.

    So now we get to the Bible supporting all this:First expansion: In Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters… It is showing that water covered the whole earth. How do we know that it covered the whole earth? Because of what Genesis 1:9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so… You see something does not have to “appear” if it’s already there. So the earth was totally covered with water that had to recede in the crust of the earth in order for land to appear. So what happens when water goes under the crust of the earth? The crust expands which would make the first expansion created what is known as the SuperContinent (link).Second expansion: In Genesis 7:11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened…. Was where the flood was started. Now why would the bible say: “And the windows of heaven were opened” if all it was doing was raining? Young Earth Creationists believe that during creation, a outer firmament (semi solid shell existed just beyond the ozone layer) was created as well. Because this semi solid shell was mainly made of “metallic hydrogen” (link) which exists naturally inside the planet Jupiter. When it fell (opened by a meteor strike like pic below), it combined with the free oxygen that existed and made more rain.

    And because the evidence cannot be disputed, I would deem all this a working model. How?
    1) We have the working mechanism to cause this which is water.
    2) We have the water where it should be to cause this which is under the earth’s crust.
    3) And we have enough water down there to expand the landmasses just as they are observed today.
    4) We have the only 2 part expansion mechanism (creation and flood) that expands the land masses twice. First making the super-continent, and then making what we see today.
    5) having the earth expand because of the intake of water beneath the crust shows just how the continents expanded. And when reversed, they fit together just like a puzzle.

    Geologic Column, did Noah's flood create it?

    We all have been taught about the Geologic Column in school. It’s the Holy Grail of the Theory of Evolution. The evidence has never been pondered to support anything else but evolution. This is because science has an unwritten rule that prohibits anyone involved to ever pursue evidence that leads in any other direction but to the Theory of Evolution. Don’t believe it? Name one person who has ever challenged the Theory of Evolution that did not have his credibility destroyed for doing so? Just one person. What this does is that it shows everyone else that even though evolution has to remain falsifiable to be a theory, you better not try to falsify it. Which also means that evolution is more about conformism than science. Need more proof? Why is it that only all things that support Darwinian evolution are the only things:

    1) Being funded? How can anything challenge Theory of Evolution to make sure it’s a true proven fact if the person who challenges it has to use his own money to do it?
    2) Why is there not any other ideas besides evolution being worked upon? Proving evolution is like a horse race. Where all contenders line up in the gates, and when the gate opens, the evolution horse is the only one allowed to run the race. If you think about it in terms of a race like that, would it be fair? Would you pay money to go see a race where the outcome is “always” rigged?

    So let’s take a look at what else could have created the Geologic Column.

    Genesis 7:11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

    The key phrase here is: fountains of the “great” deep were broken up. Now for as much water needed to flood the earth, there would be a lot of sediments coming up with the water. It would look very similar to the black smoker in the Picture above that is spewing black sediments. Except during the flood it would be erupting like a huge volcanoes. Sea creatures caught up in this would be buried according to where they lived in the seas because the burial would be so quick, the sea creature would have zero chance to escape. So if you notice, the Geologic Column has bottom dwellers first which is the correct order it would be for the flood. Then you have the mid-dwellers. And then the top dwellers. The exact order of how such a huge flood would bury the sea creatures.

    Then after all the sea creatures are buried, then comes the land animals. Which is correct order of what we see in the Geologic Column if the flood created it. It is ironic that even though science claims the column only supports evolution, that it also goes in the correct order of how things would have been buried in the flood.

    Most all evolutionists believe that the geologic column was laid over millions of years of time. But they do not have a working mechanism or explanation as to why each layer is different, and some are the same. Or why the fossil record did not record living fossil time-line (where they are found, until present time). But instead of going into the problems with how the geologic column has the fossils ordered, we will instead concentrate on the formation of it. So do evolutionists have a working process showing how the layers would form over millions of years, or do they base this solely on age dating of each layer?

    And do the Creationists have a working process for how the layers were laid by the Flood? In fact they do. The video below is different from anything you will see on the flood. It’s not your average creation video. So it’s well worth the watch as they make a working model for how the flood laid down the layers.

    And you would have everyday normal activity of fish being caught in the flood. Such as the fish below eating dinner and being covered up.

    Mass graves from being caught in flood.

    Soft tissue fossils.

    Grand Canyon, Did Noah's Flood create it?

    The fantastic thing about the claims science makes about the formation of the Grand Canyon, is that a river that currently flows through it took 5 million years (5,000,0000 years) to cut out all that you see. But there is a visual problem with this claim. You see that means that the top of the canyon has been exposed to weather wear for 5 million years. So the horizontal wear you see at the bottom, should not exist at the top. But as you notice in the picture above, the horizontal wear is almost as deep at the top as it is at the bottom of the canyon. How did that happen? 5 million years of vertical weathering should have already worn the horizontal wear away. It should not be visible, but it is. In fact as you study the picture, would you not think that this wear looks more around 4,400 years (since flood) instead of 5 million?

    Also, wear from a river over 5 million years would have left evidence. Where is all the sediment that has to wash out while the river slowly carved the canyon? You see the flood was in the process of receding back into the earth’s crust. The raging waters would have carried the sediments with it into the earth’s crust leaving no evidence. And that is exactly what we see. But to get all that water to carve the Grand Canyon and take away the sediments, you would have to have an opening in the earth’s crust (a fault line). Is there one around the Grand Canyon giving the flood waters a place to run off?

    Yes there is a “major fault line”. It would have to be a “major fault line” to take on all the water from the flood and carve out the Grand Canyon. Where you see the red arrow, it’s pointing at a major fault line that runs right through the Grand Canyon. And to top it off, we now have enough water for the flood which you can read here: Water for Noah’s Flood (link).

    Also it seems that because of the overwhelming evidence of a watery death of dinosaurs, science is just now peeking into this possibility: New Scientist (link).

    Noah's Flood, where's the water?

    Just about everyone has heard about Noah’s Flood. The main objection to it being true is that there is not enough water to flood the whole earth to the highest mountain. And this objection has gone unanswered for years because no one really knows how much water is on and underneath the crust of this planet. Or do they?

    There has been testing and research done on the upper mantle of the earth. A mineral called “wadsleyite”, holds about 3% water by weight. Does not sound like much but the estimated amount of wadsleyite that exists, the water contained in it works out to be about 30 of our oceans. 30 oceans worth of water is more than enough to flood the earth to the highest mountain.

    Suddenly, there was somewhere to put water deep inside the mantle. “You can have oceans and oceans of water stored in the transition zone,” says Jay Bass of the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. “It’s sopping wet stuff.” Researchers think wadsleyite can hold as much as 3·3 per cent water by weight.

And if the whole mantle contained 500 parts per million of water, Frost calculates that would be the equivalent of 30 oceans of water.

    The question is, why has not science shared this information with creationists? Can you guess why? It’s because it support Noah’s flood of the whole earth to the highest mountain, and not Evolution. This does away with the ideas of a local flood and shows that God knew before science did, that there was enough water. He created it.

    But science also over looked something else while trying to debunk Noah’s Flood. When that much water comes up, the surface area of the earth decreases by a great amount making it to where a lot less actual water is needed to flood the earth to the point the Bible speaks of. But there is more. They try to claim that subduction put all that water in the upper mantle of the earth. If subduction pulls that much water into the upper mantle, by now there would not be any water left on the surface of this planet. So the flood is the only working mechanism that could have placed it there.

    How can the water go into the mantle without boiling off?Solution: The water for the flood was 7 miles above the earth’s crust (sea level), and 6 miles to the deepest ocean. Pressure applied to water increases the boiling point. According to scuba diving books, every 33 feet you descend into water equals 1 atmosphere. One atmosphere = 14.7 psi. So you take how many feet are in a mile. Divide that by 33. And you get how many atmospheres are in one mile. Times that times 13 miles and you get the least amount of pressure for the least amount of water required to cover the earth for the flood. After you have the amount of atmospheres in 13 miles of water, you times that times 14.7 and you get the actual pressure at the bottom of the ocean during the flood.

    From there you can figure a boiling point. But remember, water can only reach a certain boiling point and can go no higher regardless of pressure. You can research this on the web. The other point is that salt raises this boiling point (much like antifreeze raises the boiling point of water in a car radiator) along with any other mineral that was present. So if would be safe to add 10 – 30% higher boiling point when figuring this up. I did not figure up the math for this here because I think people should see this for themselves.

    Side notes: Black smokers shoot water out at over 700 degrees F. This is due to the black smoker being deep in the water where great pressure exists (several atmospheres). And it has been known that some upper mantle minerals have held water at temps around 1000 degree C. This is due to extreme pressures, and the mineral’s capability to increase the boiling point.

    What does this prove?
    That the water receding after the flood can go into the upper mantle without boiling off. And it is not being able to come back up without broiling the earth fulfills a promise God made. He told Noah that he would never flood the whole earth again. So the water being locked in that mineral proves God’s promise.

    So explain away as they might try, we now have enough water, and a working mechanism to get the water down there.
