However, they may have formed at very different times. 37. Water Science (WAT): Studies of Earth’s water systems, including water resources, movement, distribution, and water quality. These extensive ice sheets occurred at a time when sea level was very low, exposing land where water now fills the Bering Strait. The remaining one percent of the atmosphere (all but the nitrogen, oxygen, and argon) contains small amounts of other gases including CO2 and water vapors. [21] Water vapors and CO2 allow the Earth's atmosphere to catch and hold the Sun's energy through a phenomenon called the greenhouse effect. [22] This allows Earth's surface to be warm enough to have liquid water and support life.

The NIV says "On that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened." Using evidence from Alfred Wegener’s theory of continental drift, this video from WGBH, provided via the PBS LearningMedia™ website, details the evidence that supported the theory of plate tectonics. All materials are free for home or classroom use. We shall see that the Flood geologist must reject this correspondence. This swift means of taking soil away from the mountain often defines the shape of a peak and creates the highs and lows of a mountainside.

The process by which water, ice, wind, or gravity moves fragments of rock and soil. Demonstrably non-radiogenic ‘isochrons’ of radioactive and non-radioactive elements undermine the assumptions behind isochron ‘dating’ that gives billions of years. ‘False’ isochrons are common. Figure 13.17: A flash flood in England in 2004 was caused by three and a half inches of rain that fell in just 60 minutes. The debate over Flood geology in its modern form dates from the publication of The Genesis Flood by John Whitcomb and Henry Morris in 1961. 5 They and other young-earth creationists have vigorously pursued an inquiry into possible details of Flood mechanisms and effects, and have sponsored an active creation science educational agenda. 6 Creation science consists more of Flood study than of anything else.

The territory adjacent to Eden on its east, Nod (Genesis 4:16), 54 was conducive to livestock (Genesis 4:20) and yielded ores of iron, copper, and tin or zinc (Genesis 4:22). 55 Distant in time, and possibly in locale, Noah in Genesis 6:14 before the Flood used gopher wood for the ark (Hebrew gôpher, possibly resinous wood) sealing it with pitch (or bitumen, Hebrew kôpher). For that reason, he said, scientists thought that "surface water as it exists on our planet today must have come much, much later—hundreds of millions of years later."
