Floodwaters, while a major factor in that event, were only a part of the total happening. The disaster was not limited just to the earth, but was solar and interplanetary in scope and magnitude. Today the tracks are there for us all to see with our own eyes, if we will.

 

Disbelief in the Biblical story of the Flood of Noah has been commonly supported by the declaration that there is no known cause for such a happening, and that it is scientifically impossible. Now all that changes, for the monstrous evidences to be revealed here, all tell the story of an overwhelming Source.

 

Isa. 48:6, Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it? I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them.

 

Jer. 33:2-3, Thus saith the LORD the maker thereof, the LORD that formed it, to establish it; the LORD is his name; Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

 

For the human mind to declare that the Flood never happened because it knows of no way by which it could occur, and then to declare it therefore impossible, where the Lord's Word is concerned, is ridiculous!

 

A second storm, predicted in the Scriptures, and said there to come about in a similar manner, is declared by the Bible to be right upon us. Knowing more fully the first storm, and how it occurred, will leave us prepared to realize that the second storm now facing us, is not just ancient folklore written in an old black book. You will know without any doubt that it is a sober reality of our lives.

 

But, a way of escape has been prepared, and some will take advantage of it, but only very few did in Noah's time. How many will grasp the opportunity to escape the coming storm now?

 

Consider the Creator-God

 

Gen. 1:1, "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth".

 

Who & What is this God? What is this ability to create? How is it possible that there should be such a thing as a Creator and a creation? Pharaoh, King of Egypt at the time of Moses, asked a similar question in Ex. 5:2 when he said, "Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go."

 

Of course he knew Who the Lord was, from a previous generation when Joseph was Prime Minister and Israel had moved down to Egypt as honored guests, but his rhetorical question was actually born from his defiance of God.

 

There have been such unbelievers in every generation since then, asking such questions, even scoffing and belittling the possibility of creation and a Creator as being scientifically impossible.

 

But God says...

Isa. 45:9, "Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?"

 

So man dares to question the existence of God and His creative ability. To this the Creator says again in verses 11-12, Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me. I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded."

 

And, He has left evidences of His handiwork for us to consider.

 

Let us begin with our 1st question, "Who & What is God?"

God is … the Source of all energy far exceeding that of the sun, or of an atomic bomb. He is also a personality. He has a name, and that name means Creator of All; it also means that He is Lord of All, and in that name is found the key to the Creator’s relationship with man. Amos 4:13 reveals the name of the Creator and links it with His creative action: “For, lo, he that formeth the mountains, and createth the wind, and declareth unto man what is his thought, that maketh the morning darkness, and treadeth upon the high places of the earth, The LORD, The God of hosts, is his name.” He is the Source of all energy & matter, the Source of all power. Consider Energy & Matter: Energy & matter form the basis of all our environment. These two basic materials form all things that are evident to our senses. We have asked the question also, “What is this ability to create? How is it possible for there to be such as thing as a creation and a Creator?” Let us pause to consider some scientific observations. There are those who hold to the evolution theory who submit to us that all things have always been pretty much the same as what they are now, because of very slow and gradual processes over many millions, yes even billons, of years. Some have even supposed that there was not any beginning, nor any ending; but that everything is cyclical, yet matter holds within itself evidences that reveal instantaneous formation as it is converted from a Source of energy, (such energy Source being in excess of all energy presently in existence), for there is much energy still left over … in operation, holding all the matter together in a constant and continuous relationship of subatomic particles, atoms, molecules and so on. Colossians 1:17, “And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” (hold together). Consider the process of turning Matter into Energy: At the frontier of nuclear science, man has succeeded in converting matter into energy. A small boy also does this as he strikes a match and it bursts into flame. The point at which the frictional heat converts the matchhead into flames is instantaneous. It is either in a state of non-combustion (or matter), or it is in the state of combustion, which is energy. Whenever matter is converted into energy; whether by simple friction, as on a matchhead, or by nuclear fusion and fission, the result is the same, instantaneous conversion. There is no in-between stage. Here is another area in which matter reveals within itself instantaneous formation into usable material form. This is in the formation of molecules.

In Deuteronomy 4:24 God describes Himself, “For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.” God is referred to many times in Scripture as a brightness too intense for man to look upon and live, as in Dt. 4:33 where God addressed the people and said, ”Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and live? In Ex. 33:18-20 Moses stood before the Creator on Mt. Sinai and asked the Lord for the privilege of seeing Him face-to-face, to which the Lord replied, “I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy. And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.”

Molecules that compose all solids are in a rigid molecular formation in which atoms combine to form molecules in a locked-up or rigid arrangement, characterized by identifiable geometric shapes or crystal patterns, somewhat like tiny Lego blocks. Liquids and gases remain in a fluid arrangement, yet they are just as certainly dependent on certain well-defined unions of atoms of various elemental combinations into molecules. Molecular formation is instantaneous. When all the necessary conditions are met, the atoms do not wait, they unite, or bond, instantly. Also, often these combinations are such as to release great amounts of energy in the form of heat produced during the bonding process. Now, man has found very many ways of converting matter into energy, especially for the purpose of reaping the heat off of the reaction, but he has never even remotely approached the reverse of this process, which is to create matter from pure un-borrowed energy. This is a creative act, in which a source of un-borrowed energy must first be available to man … and there is none. God alone is that divine Source. But, should pure, uninvolved energy become available to man, he would have opportunity to try his skill at converting it into sub-nuclear, sub-atomic particles, and to finding some means of persuading some of that energy to hold these particles into tightly bonded units so as to form an atomic nucleus where none existed before. Next he would need to form some of it into electrons to orbit the nucleus and complete the atomic structure. He would need to repeat this process in many ways, many times, and with many varieties, until he had formed various types of atoms making up the elemental types necessary to form molecules.

Then he could proudly say, “I am a creator”. He may even try to say, “I am a god.” But of course the ability to execute that process is not available to us (at least not in this life). As was said before, the process of conversion of matter into energy is always instantaneous, whenever the conditions are met. So also would the reverse process be an instantaneous one, with even much more energy required, for it would be an uphill process by comparison.

We are about to begin our discovery of the cause and great events that brought about great deluge that we call the Flood of Noah.

The study of atomic and nuclear physics reveals the sudden creation of all matter, the sudden creation of the earth and our solar system, and the sudden creation of the entire universe. The God of the Scriptures likewise so declares it: Isa. 48:3, 7, 13, “I have declared the former things from the beginning (through His created works), and they went forth out of My mouth, and I showed them, (yes, and there they were), I did them suddenly (you see no long ages of evolutionary process here) and they came to pass.” v.7, “They are created now (that is instantly) and not from the beginning (in a still-continuing, long, drawn-out evolutionary process since the dawn of history), even before the day when thou heardest them not (here before man himself was created and could be on the scene to hear the creative words spoken out of His mouth, He says), lest thou should say, behold, I knew them.“ v.13, “Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together.” Also Ps. 33:6 & 9, “By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth…. For he spake, and it was done, he commanded, and it stood fast.” Here is every atom and molecule, formed and bound together, instantly and forever, by His own great energy & power. The formation of all matter & energy (which we as human beings have ever known) was instantaneous.

Astronomers have revealed to us pictures of great galaxies in the starry heavens called “island universes”. These concentrations of cosmic bodies contain literally countless numbers of suns like our own sun (perhaps the larger proportion of which are much larger than our own sun). It is believed that these suns (like our own sun) are attended by their own planets in many cases. The Bible gives some evidence of this, and the expectation that a portion of these, at least, may be inhabited by intelligent beings like that on earth. In the pictures of these galaxies we see clearly that they have a very bright center in some examples, containing a heavy concentration of suns and their systems orbiting close to the galactic center. As one observes further out from the center, the stars, or suns, become less closely concentrated, and finally become thinly scattered near the outer edges of the galaxy. All appear to rotate around the galactic center, truly an “island universe”. Our sun (with its planets) is located in one of these “Island Universes” which we call the Milky Way galaxy. At the present time our solar system is located about 2/3 of the distance out from the center of the galaxy. This was not always the case. Our sun, and its planets, and their satellites, were once located very near the center of our galaxy. They were formed there by the Creator during the biblical creation week. Our sun, in the beginning, orbited in its place around the galactic center, being in turn orbited by its planets, and they by their satellites. The sun’s planets, however, didn‘t all largely orbit on a single elliptic plane as they do now, being at greatly different distances from the sun.

In the beginning the planets were all fairly close to the same distance from the sun, not exactly, but close. Each orbited on a different elliptic about the sun, one around the polar equatorial plane, one around the solar polar elliptic, and others of varying plane angles in between, much as we picture the model of an atomic nucleus being orbited by electrons. Realize if you will, that the ideal distance from the sun (for a mildly temperate atmosphere to exist on a planet) must vary with the type of atmosphere the planet may have. We have the example of Venus today whose dense atmosphere acts like a greenhouse, trapping heat from the sun until its surface temperatures are much too hot for life to exist. Ideal distances from the sun would vary with the type of atmosphere and its density. The atmospheres we see today on the planets and their satellites do not necessarily reflect what they were prior to Noah’s Flood. Some have no atmosphere (or a very thin one today), whereas before they had an adequate atmosphere. Another factor in provision for an ideal climate is the degree of axial tilt of the planet, or its satellites, to the plane of its orbit. The ideal would be from about 5-7 degrees. We are not told anywhere in the Scriptures, nor do we have any scientific evidence that there is, or ever has been, life on any other planet in our own solar system other than what is on the earth (although the Scriptures reveal that life in all probability exists in other solar systems throughout the Universe). In the beginning we can expect that each planet of our sun was formed and placed for ideal conditions for life. That life has only been noted on earth alone to this date does not mean that the Creator didn’t intend eventually to create life on the other planets also. Isa. 45:18, “For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.”

... And speaking of “none else” we must remember also, that from the biblical records, during the time the creation of the earth and our solar system took place, we see that God was experiencing a rebellion among His angels, led by Lucifer (meaning the “carrier” or “ferry-er” of light or “lumens”, now called Satan, meaning “Adversary”). This Lucifer was planning to become another “Lord, or God”, seeking to overthrow the government of the Creator Himself. Now, evidently planning to limit the controversy to one small point in the universe until it could be settled, the Creator allowed Satan and his rebel angels access to the newly created earth. With this interruption we could expect that the Creator might postpone the continuing creation of life-forms on other, nearby planets (had He had this in mind) until the conflict on earth could be resolved. We cannot know all the details of how things were on the other planets of our solar system and their satellites. But, with this corollary in mind about Lucifer’s rebellion we can see that it would be consistent for our Creator to eventually want to populate our neighbor-planets someday, when earth’s rebellion against Him is ended. What we can know is what the evidences are soon to reveal to us. What we can know is that changes, drastic changes, took place, not just on the earth, but in the entire solar system, at Noah’s Flood. The tracks are all there, and the Scriptures have long been telling us much more than we have realized. Now, let’s think about molecules again, especially molecular escape velocity.

Consider for a moment the planet Saturn, not the way it was then, but the way it is now. It is probably the most beautiful planet in our solar system. It is circled by rings made up of captured particles that are in orbit about the equatorial diameter of the planet. Saturn has the total weight density about the same as a piece of wood. It is so light that were it to be on water it would float. It is made up almost entirely of gasses. Prominent among these (and of interest in our study) are hydrogen & helium, natures 2 lightest gasses. When we use the term “lighter” let us realize that this means that the molecules of these 2 gasses have a higher “escape velocity” than others. By “escape velocity” we mean that their molecules have such a high speed in motion, that they could (under the right conditions) escape the gravity of the planet that holds them and travel to the sun, which has the greater gravity. Molecules bounce around at very high speeds, and when these speeds are sufficient, they will escape the gravity that holds them. On earth, the gas, helium, will not remain in free-gas form. It gets away and escapes to the sun, but on Saturn it remains there because Saturn is so much farther from the sun that the sun’s gravity is greatly reduced and is insufficient to attract the helium from Saturn’s surface. Saturn has a very small and rocky core. If all of its gasses escaped, it would be about the size of our earth. The planet Mercury is very close to the sun. Any gasses or free, unbound atoms which may ever have been on Mercury would not remain there now. They would be captured by the sun. What to we learn by these observations? We learn that prior to Noah’s Flood we have no knowledge about the status of the planets or of their satellites. Their present sizes and consistency very likely do not reflect now what they once were. Indeed, some that are planets now may have only been satellites before, such as Mercury or Saturn (relieved of its excess helium atoms), or even the planet Mars.

(Ellen G. White, Patriarchs & Prophets, p.57 & 61) “After his transgression Adam at first imagined himself entering upon a higher state of existence. But soon the thought of his sin filled him with terror. The air, which had hitherto been of a mild and uniform temperature, seemed to chill the guilty pair. The love and peace which had been theirs was gone, and in its place they felt a sense of sin, a dread of the future, a nakedness of soul. (Have you ever felt that way? I sure have, and its no fun!) “The robe of light which had enshrouded them, now disappeared, and to supply its place they endeavored to fashion for themselves a covering; for they could not, while unclothed, meet the eye of God and holy angels. PP 61 “In humility and unutterable sadness they bade farewell to their beautiful home and went forth to dwell upon the earth, where rested the curse of sin. The atmosphere, once so mild and uniform in temperature, was now subject to marked changes, and the Lord mercifully provided them with a garment of skins as a protection from the extremes of heat and cold. “As they witnessed in drooping flower and falling leaf the first signs of decay, Adam and his companion mourned more deeply than men now mourn over their dead. The death of the frail, delicate flowers was indeed a cause of sorrow; but when the goodly trees cast off their leaves, the scene brought vividly to mind the stern fact that death is the portion of every living thing.”

A day came early in the Bible history, when Adam & Eve yielded to the temptations and deceptions of Satan & his rebels. They had been given adequate counsel and warning beforehand, but they disbelieved their Creator. They disbelieved His warning that death would come to them and to their planetary home. Yes, they disbelieved and broke off their relation with their Maker by yielding to the deception. To break off their relation was to break off their connection with the Source of life, for them, for their planet, and for their solar system. When this happened, great changes began to occur. Another author describes what happened.

Galaxy: The sun and its planets had been orbiting the center of the galaxy, much closer than now. There is a glorious brightness and splendor there. Other suns, not so far distant as now, shared their light so that the galactic center glowed with their collective brightness. But, with the earth now in rebellion it must be isolated like a patient with a highly contagious disease. So, God spoke to the sun, and the sun was given an added burst of energy. This additional energy increased its orbital speed slightly, and therefore the sun increased its orbital distance to a point farther out from the galactic center. In the condition in which the planets are today, they could not be habitable for life, whereas we can surmise that they once were. As the sun moved outward, the effect was damaging to its planets. Before they could overcome their steady orbital inertia and follow after the sun, they lost some of their perfect orbital planes and the tilts of their solar axes. The polar axis of earth and other planets increased in tilt from the near-perpendicular to a slightly greater amount. Also, their distances from the sun were increased somewhat as they lagged behind. The sun’s gravitational pull upon the earth decreased slightly, so that Earth’s gravity upon itself thereby increased somewhat. The atmosphere weighed a little more at the earth’s surface and became more compressed and dense, though not enough as yet to cause rain. All surface objects weighed a little more at the earth’s surface than before.

All the buried fossil record testifies today of that fact. Though Adam & Eve experienced what things were like prior to their Fall, and could compare with the condition of things afterward, their descendants could not, and they largely disbelieved their first parents, and they disbelieved in God in doing so. The time finally came when, because the rebellion had become almost complete, the Creator found it necessary to take further drastic steps to slow the rebellion, and to provide time for man to be saved from it. Those who listen and respond as the Creator unfolds to us this great catastrophe of Noah’s Flood, will also realize that a second storm is now right on our doorstep, and will not be long in coming. Those who respond with renewed loyal relations with their Creator will be saved. For those who reject Him, oblivion on a planet lost in space awaits, far from the solar system it once called home, truly the biblical “bottomless pit”. Since you are already involved, and you have only one way of escape, I urge you to listen to this story, a story impossible to believe, yet terribly, terribly true. The craters on the moon, the condition of Mercury, and Mars and others will tell you, and there will be no choice but to believe. You will have a choice, however, whether to accept the only escape offered. Read very carefully, for your life depends upon it.

Adam & Eve could feel the difference and apprehension seized upon them (though the difference was slight compared with what was to come later at the Flood of Noah). The Lord told Adam, “in the sweat of they face shalt thou eat bread, ‘til thou return unto the ground” (Gen. 3:19) Before sin, Adam weighed less. He could move about easily on the surface of the earth. Now, he weighed somewhat more than before. Every effort was now noticeably greater. It was enough to bring the sweat out on him now, when he worked harder to raise food on a soil that would no longer produce as well as before. Also, the seasons were now sufficiently more extreme to cause the vegetation to go into a dormant cycle. Yet this first “curse” as the Bible calls it, still left the earth a much more beautiful place to live in than it now is.

The moon at that time was FAR different from what it is now. We are given a clue as to what it was once like in a reference to the great “restoration of all things” that is to take place in the near future. Isa. 30:26, “Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.” For the sun to appear “seven times brighter” as we might infer from this text, it would have to be much closer to the earth, as it once was before, and also the earth would have to have its dense atmospheric water-vapor-shield restored that it once had, in order to keep the sun from frying the earth’s surface (as it will do in the 4th of the 7 Last Plagues). And for the moon to reflect the light of the sun as brightly as the sun itself it would have to do a far better job of reflecting the sun’s rays than it now does, for what we now see is only a dim reflection at best. It would have had to be covered with a shimmering layer of liquid water, and an atmosphere of sufficient weight to hold the water on the moon’s surface.

God spoke His great energy into the sun again, and in response the sun moved even farther out from the galactic center, and again, dragging all the planets and their satellites along with it, pulling them all nearly into the same orbital plane around the sun’s equatorial center. As the planets and their satellites were pulled into line behind the fleeing sun, some of them came very close to each other, and the moon came very, very close to the earth’s greater mass, and superior gravitational pull.

During the second day of Creation Week, the excess water on the earth’s surface was made to go underground into vast storage caverns so that the “dry land” might appear. But now the sudden departing of the sun, and loss of its gravitational pull on the earth’s surface made earth’s own gravity suddenly much stronger on itself. We read in Gen. 7:11, “And the fountains of the great deep were broken up” (from the suddenly excessive weight of the land-masses above the fountains crushing down upon them) and the water gushed out of the ground with explosively violent force, straight up, at supersonic speed, soaring high up into the sky, carrying dirt, mud, and giant boulders high up with it, and then falling back, not as a gentle rain, nor even as a violent rainstorm, but as mighty torrents and monstrous mud and rocks, falling out of the sky! Not only this, but as the moon came very, very close to the earth the earth’s greater mass & gravity began to pull the atmosphere away from the moon’s surface down to the surface of the earth. As the vapor-pressure from its atmosphere was lost the moon’s single vast ocean, uninterrupted by any land-masses, suddenly began to boil and burst into water-vapor like a boiling pot, only with the force of atomic explosions, as its water-molecules also escaped to the earth’s surface, where (as they again came under the pressure of earth’s atmosphere), condensed back again into water, and then millions of tons of water (and some of it possibly as huge blocks of ice) plunged down onto the earth’s surface with indescribable force! Ellen White described the situation this way in Patriarchs & Prophets, p. 99.

“But upon the eighth day ... (Noah and his family spent 7 days in the Ark establishing their daily routine of caring for all the animals before the Flood actually began. Note: 1 day = 360 degrees of earth's rotation. x 7 days = 2520 total degrees of rotation, and apparent peace, after the "door was shut", after the world's probation had closed) dark clouds overspread the heavens. There followed the muttering of thunder and the flash of lightning. Soon large drops of rain began to fall. The world had never witnessed anything like this, and the hearts of men were struck with fear. All were secretly inquiring, “Can it be that Noah was in the right, and that the world is doomed to destruction?” Darker and darker grew the heavens, and faster came the falling rain. The beasts were roaming about in the wildest terror, and their discordant cries seemed to moan out their own destiny and the fate of man. Then “the fountains of the great deep” were “broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.” Water appeared to come from the clouds in mighty cataracts. Rivers broke away from their boundaries, and overflowed the valleys. Jets of water burst from the earth with indescribable force, throwing massive rocks hundreds of feet into the air, and these, in falling, buried themselves deep in the ground.” With all this violent action going on, the earth’s very atmosphere rippled and rolled, heaved and swelled like the waves of the sea, and in some places even rolling back enough to expose the earth’s surface to the absolute cold of outer-space. This explains why at least one giant Wooly Mammoth has been found, evidently snap-frozen solid, with freshly eaten buttercup flowers still in its stomach.

Back to the Moon. The vast ocean on the surface of the moon, lashed into fury by its own exploding molecular structures, became a sea of frothing, boiling mud as its surface was exposed to the absolute vacuum of space. Eventually it finally boiled completely and totally as dry as dust, leaving behind only the dusty craters we now see on its surface. (And I’m not denying that some of the moon’s small craters were formed by space-rocks impacting upon its surface, but the vast majority of them were formed by this single, catastrophic event, and left as a silent witness to us today.) The larger craters are too shallow to be from the impacts of space-rocks going thousands of miles per second in speed! There is a crater in the Arizona desert formed by the impact of a supersonic space-rock, and it made a very deep hole in the ground, even after who knows how many years of earth’s weather eroding it (and there is no weather erosion on the moon). The craters on the moon are still now pretty much the same way as they were when they were originally formed there, as its muddy surface boiled dry in the vacuum of space. This scenario is shown to be true by the patterns of the craters, and other characteristics, that serve as mute evidence of the manner of its death.

How about the South Pole?

Consider the craters that are visible in this image of the Moon’s North Pole. Is it just me or do these craters appear to give a kind of visual spiral effect?

Consider also the Nearside - Farside dilemma (from Wikipedia). “The cause of the farside/nearside asymmetry is an interesting scientific question. Past studies have shown that the crust on the farside is thicker…. Why is the farside crust thicker? That is still up for debate…” Knowing what we already know now about the condition of the moon before the Flood (that it was basically just a ball of mud covered with water), it is not too hard to figure out the answer to this perplexing scientific dilemma.

Why do both poles have this spiral effect in the craters? …... Answer: Tides, tidal action. It is apparent from these resulting spiral patterns of the craters at the moon’s opposite poles that its polar-equatorial axis used to point directly at the earth. As the moon’s surface boiled dry in the vacuum of space, the last part to dry out was the part nearest to (and the part farthest from) the earth, and as the last of the moisture in the mud exploded outward toward the earth (from both ends) it left behind smaller and smaller craters. And since the moon was rotating on its axis at that time (as all the planets and planetary satellites used to do) the craters tended to make lines of craters across its surface, on both the front and the back. But as the earth’s superior mass and gravitational pull acted on the moon it actually caused the moon to slow down and finally cease to rotate, and at the very last of its final rotation, the gyroscopic force of the moon’s rotating mass made it wobble (like a child’s top as it slows down) and finally tilt sideways over onto its side, and stop there, where it is yet today, thousands of years later, mute evidence of its own violent death. We speak of “north & south poles” on the moon because of our viewpoint here on the earth, but in terms of its polar axis pointing AT the earth, the moon is now actually over on its side.

As the no-longer rotating moon swooped down very, very close to the earth’s surface, the mighty gravitational pull of the earth actually caused the soft, muddy crust of the moon to pull and ooze toward the side nearest the earth’s surface, and even small pieces of muddy moon-mud broke free and plummeted to the earth. That’s why we find rocks on the earth that have the same chemical composition as the rocks the space missions brought back from the moon. That also explains the current (erroneous) scientific theory that the moon was once part of the earth and got knocked off of the earth by an asteroid impact. Of course all the craters on the backside of the moon got stretched out flat, and as the moon drifted away to establish its new orbit, it left showing us its final backside. You could say that the moon is “mooning” the earth! How appropriate! God uses the moon to add “insult” as well as “injury” to an earth almost totally populated by “butt-heads”, both demonic and human!

And of course, the earth is now covered 75% with water. All that water tends to break the earth’s people-groups up into separate populations, so that it will be harder to band everyone together for a common [evil] purpose again (like what was done at the Tower of Babel). Although what with the "New World Order" and "One-World Government" presently coming up, we can begin to see that we are headed for a new "Global Babylon", and its very quickly becoming time for God to act again in order to close the whole sinful thing down, once and for-all, and God will reverse the creation process in the Seven Last Plagues. I don’t have time to go into that great, final storm, but the Bible does give us a few clues as to what the earth will be like after the “un-creation” process is complete. Jer. 4:24-27, “I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. v25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. v26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger. v27 For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end. 28 For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it” Isa. 13:13-14, “ Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger. v14 And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up. (just wandering) Isa. 34:4, “And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree. Rev. 6:14, “And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. ----------------------------------------------------- So, there you have it folks, the “tracks” of the great Flood, left in earth, sun, moon, & planets. Now, its up to YOU to decide for yourself. IS the atmospheric weight of the evidence presented enough for you to condense your faith solidly enough for you to stand upon it, and be moved into action, to cast your helpless soul on the Creator’s mercy? That’s all He asks of you.

Mars. And this isn’t all either, the planet Mars (still covered with its own “garment” of water and vapor), also veered too close to the much larger earth (briefly) and also lost nearly all of its own atmosphere and water too. But as Mars moved farther away from the earth the water that had boiled up into its upper atmosphere re-condensed and poured violently back down onto its surface, quickly eroding its still soft, muddy, wet surface, quickly forming the vast “canals” and “Grand Canyons” we see there now (about 10 times “grander” than the one here on earth, which was also formed very quickly by lots of water cutting quickly through many layers of soft, newly deposited mud). But since Mars didn’t have enough atmosphere left to hold its water in liquid form on its surface it eventually all evaporated away into space.

He has already made abundant provision for you. He has already sent Jesus to live a perfect life, and to die for your sins, so you can live eternally with Him forever in peace (along with all the other peaceful people of all history), for “the meek shall inherit the earth” and the moon, sun, planets, stars, galaxies & the whole Universe as Royal Children of the King who created it ALL~! So, right now, claim Jesus’ perfect life in place of your selfish and polluted life, and do it every day for all the rest of your life! …and I will too! And together when Jesus comes back, we will win with Him in a really big way! :-)
