In response to my two recent posts, reader JS sent two Google-Earth images that provide further evidence the Appalachians were eroded by the receding waters of Noah’s Flood. My first post presented a reinterpretation of a paper published in GSA Today (a publication of the Geological Society of America) which examined the Cullasaja basin in [...]
Sean Gallen, lead author of the GSA Today paper about the uplift of the Appalachians, which I connected with Noah’s Flood has responded with the following comment. My response is interspersed.
I am the first author on the article “Miocene rejuvenation of topographic relief in the southern Appalachians”. While my coauthors and I appreciate Tas’ interest [...]
An interesting article, published in GSA Today (a publication by the Geological Society of America) in February 2013, describes features of the landscape of the Appalachian Mountains. These are a system of mountain ranges in eastern North America, extending from around Atlanta, Georgia, north past New York, and into Canada (see figure left). The paper [...]
Reader JS sent some Google-Earth images of the Cape Town area, prompted by reading an article on Yahoo! News entitled African Mountain Range Could be World’s Strongest.
The researchers calculated erosion rates for the mountains based on measuring radioactive isotopes of beryllium. They calculated an unbelievably slow rate of erosion for the Table Mountain area, [...]
My Google friend sent me some more shots1 of Carnarvon Gorge using Google Earth. They said:
Here’s a series of screenshots with different sea levels, showing how water may have emptied through Carnarvon Gorge, using 2.5x elevation exaggeration for emphasis. The view is from the head of the Gorge looking toward the water gap through Clematis [...]
A Google friend sent me some screen shots of the Carnarvon Gorge area, saying “I was inspired by your latest blog post to ‘Google-Earth’ Carnarvon Gorge.” The first shot here helps us picture what was happening as the floodwaters were receding. My friend says:
The blue sea level is set at 880m asl, and clearly delineates [...]
As you travel the unsealed road to Carnarvon Gorge, just before you reach the Camping Area, you pass through a break in Clematis Ridge. The photo from the top of the ridge shows it running south from where the people are sitting. Clematis Ridge extends across the whole entrance to the Gorge for a distance [...]
My colleague Robert Carter recently sent me a link to a video that documents the draining of the hundred-year-old Condit Dam on the White Salmon River in Washington State in the Pacific NW.
About the event, the commentary on the video says: “On October 26th , a hole was blasted in the base of 125′ tall [...]
Here are some raised sea-level maps of the Sydney area that show very interesting features connected with the receding waters of Noah’s Flood.
First image: The 80m level is the level at which the scarp west of Sydney pops out. It seems that 80m is globally significant in many places. Near Perth it also [...]
Thanks to reader JS who sent two images of the windgap near Perth, Western Australia: a closeup of Walyunga NP, and a larger scale image of the Perth coast. They were obtained from Google Earth. JS said:
“The first is a Google Earth screenshot, in which the purple represents a filled-in contour of 80m asl [...]
