The Earth was Divided

Cutaway comparison of Earth before and after Peleg's tectonics

September 8

To Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.

(Genesis 10:25) NKJV

To Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.

(1 Chronicles 1:19) NKJV

For a fire is kindled in My anger, And shall burn to the lowest hell; It shall consume the earth with her increase, And set on fire the foundations of the mountains.

(Deuteronomy 32:22) NKJV

The fire kindled in the lowest hell consumed the core of the Earth. The core melted completely so that the pillars of the Earth lost their base of support. The mantle collapsed.

August 25

The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall shew forth the praises of the LORD.

(Isaiah 60:6) KJV

Deposition and lithification of sediment (Noah’s flood), had to be before the formation of mountains composed of the sediment (Peleg’s tectonics).

A Mist Went Up

This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground; but a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.

(Genesis 2:4-6) NKJV

Contextually the mist that went up was a phenomenon which happened during the week of creation, specifically on the third day. However, in conservative Christian doctrine this condition persisted until the time of Noah.

The Fountains of the Great Deep

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the windows of the heavens were opened.

(Genesis 7:11) ESV

Did God build the fountains of the great deep for the purpose of flooding the Earth? If he did then he must have intended to flood it even before Adam and Eve sinned in the garden of Eden. That’s a problem.

The Great Deep

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the windows of the heavens were opened.

(Genesis 7:11) ESV

The deep and the great deep are both translated from the same Hebrew word, tehom. The difference signifies a transition from the deep where Earth was created to when the great deep is in the interior of the Earth.

The Sign of Jonah

A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

(Matthew 16:4) KJV

The sign of Jonah looks like a Biblical inconsistency. We (that’s me and the Holy Spirit) have never been able to figure out how Friday night to Sunday morning is three days and three nights. Just sayin’.

What is a Fact?

Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

(Isaiah 28:9-10) KJV

Someone made the charge that we’re denying science. It looked like the knee-jerk reaction of someone with a progressive agenda, a scientifically illiterate science worshiper (SISW). We attempted to explain two things:

Uniformitarianism Fails

Cutaway of planet Earth showing the relative depth of Noah's flood

And the waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth, and all the high hills under the whole heaven were covered. The waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered.

(Genesis 7:19-20) NKJV

Uniformitarianism exists to support the time scale needed in the popular science narrative of godless existence (SciPop) but it’s not a testable hypothesis, so it’s not scientific.

Uniformitarianism Applied

The earth is violently broken, The earth is split open, The earth is shaken exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, And shall totter like a hut; Its transgression shall be heavy upon it, And it will fall, and not rise again.

(Isaiah 24:19-20) NKJV

A classic example of the use of uniformitarianism is the calculation of how much has time has passed since the tectonic plates formed. Supposedly we can tell how fast the African and American continents are moving apart.
