The Speed of Plate Tectonics

Bathymetric map of the world

September 13

He stood, and measured the earth: he beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow: his ways are everlasting.

(Habakkuk 3:6) KJV

The Pangaea super-continent broke up into tectonic plates and these moved into their current locations over the space of a century or so. How do we know? By studying paleomagnetism.

Babel

the ancient city of Babel was an attempt to reach the heavens

September 5

Now the whole earth had one language and one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there. Then they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”

(Genesis 11:1-4) NKJV

We’re told that, after Noah’s flood, the people decided to stay together as a community and build a city. That wasn’t what God had in mind. He was working with a deadline.

Monotremes

Duck-billed platypus

September 4

Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.

(Isaiah 42:10) KJV

Australia was part of Pangaea for 101 years after Noah’s flood. That’s how Monotremes got there. If you’ve been vexing Creationists with the issue of Australia’s unique fauna: time’s up, find a new game. Sing a new song.

Pangaea

The earth after noah's flood was the super-continent Pangaea

September 1

And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.

So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

(Genesis 11:1-2, 8-9) KJV

It’s an accepted belief in popular science (SciPop) that, at some time in the past, all of the continents were part of one super-continent. This is known as Pangaea.

The Iridium Anomaly

August 19

The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;

(Genesis 8:2) KJV

We finished a step-by-step deconstruction of the Paleozoic and Mesozoic, but there’s another issue that we’re going to account for: the Iridium anomaly.

The Weight of a Talent

And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

(Revelation 16:21) KJV

Can we calculate a new planetary radius for the Millennial Kingdom based on what Revelation tells us about how much stellar material will fall to Earth? How many stars are there? What’s the weight of a talent?

Pangaean Geography

After Noah's flood Pangaea may have has a Mediterranean sea

September 2nd

Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.

The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah. And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

( Genesis 11:1-5 ) KJV

Pangaea is typically described as a contiguous landmass, but some renderings show the land arranged around an ocean. We have edited an image of Pangaea to show an ocean which would become the Mediterranean Sea.

And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.

So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

( Genesis 11:1-2, 8-9 ) KJV
  • IF God caused people and animals to spread abroad upon the face of all the earth,
  • AND this must have happened before the breakup of Pangaea,
  • THEN after Noah’s flood the earth was one continent (Pangaea).
