>Feature: Scientists discover Biblical "fountains of the deep," massive subterranean ocean in earth’s mantle under east Asia

>To him [God] that stretched out the earth above the waters.
— Psalm 136:6

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. — Genesis 7:11 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained. — Genesis 8:2

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his [Jesus’ second] coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation [uniformitarianism]. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished. — 2 Peter 3:3-6

The evolutionary worldview provides a “scientific” basis for the international communist conspiracy and many other errors pervasive in our society today. Someone once said that an atheist is halfway to becoming a communist. God graciously delivered your resident blogger from the lie of atheism/New Age evolutionism 17 years ago. In the final analysis, I don’t believe it’s possible to truly understand the conflict between freedom and communism, or analyze scientific data, without holding to a Biblical worldview.

Many, as did I at one time, have dismissed the Holy Bible as a discredited ancient religious text but, ironically, never before in history has there been more scientific, archaeological, and other proof to demonstrate its historical accuracy and uniquely divine origin. I especially applaud the courageous research of creation scientists, many of whom are ex-evolutionists who have come to personal faith in Jesus Christ as they consider the staggering complexity of life and the divinely ordered, fine tuning of the laws of nature. Ironically, in many instances, the findings of secular scientists actually demonstrate the validity of the Biblical worldview. In the case below, they support the reference in Genesis to the “fountains of the deep,” one of the two major sources of water that produced the Noahic Deluge and the fossil record about 4,500 years ago. The discoveries below are consistent with mechanical engineer Walt Brown’s hydroplate theory explanation of the Flood.

3-D seismic model of vast water reservoir revealed Earth mantle ‘ocean’
By Tony Fitzpatrick

Feb. 7, 2007 — A seismologist at Washington University in St. Louis has made the first 3-D model of seismic wave damping — diminishing — deep in the Earth’s mantle and has revealed the existence of an underground water reservoir at least the volume of the Arctic Ocean.
It is the first evidence for water existing in the Earth’s deep mantle.

Michael E. Wysession, Ph.D., Washington University professor of earth and planetary sciences in Arts & Sciences, working with former graduate student Jesse Lawrence (now at the University of California, San Diego), analyzed 80,000 shear waves from more than 600,000 seismograms and found a large area in Earth’s lower mantle beneath eastern Asia where water is damping out, or attenuating, seismic waves from earthquakes.

The traditional method seismologists use to image the Earth below us is to measure the speed of seismic waves. This will provide a sort of CAT scan of the Earth’s core and mantle. Using wave speeds alone is a problem, however, because they cannot distinguish between temperature and composition variations.

The research is described in a forthcoming monograph, Earth’s Deep Water Cycle, which is in press to be published by the American Geophysical Union.

Analyzing damped-out waves

An increasingly popular method, which Wysession used, is to analyze the way waves damp out from their source. If you take a hammer and pound it hard on a desk, waves will go from the source to the end of the table with the mass of the table lessening, or attenuating, the power of waves. A picture near the striking point might topple, but a stapler two feet away might not even budge. Attenuation data tell seismologists how stiff a region is, which is a function of how hot it is and how much water it contains. Looking at the seismic wave speeds and attenuation at the same time can tell whether an anomaly is due to temperature or water.

In analyzing the data, Wysession first saw large patterns associated with known areas where the ocean floor is sinking down into the earth. Beneath Asia, the fallen Pacific sea floor piles up at the base of the mantle. Right above that he observed an “incredibly highly attenuating region, that is both very damping and slightly slow,” he said. “Water slows the speed of waves a little. Lots of damping and a little slowing match the predictions for water very well.”

Previous predictions calculated that a cold ocean slab sinking into the earth at 1,200 to 1,4000 kilometers beneath the surface would release water in the rock that would escape the rock and rise up to a region above it, but this was never previously observed.

Beijing anomaly

“That is exactly what we show here, the exact depth and high attenuation amounts right above it,” Wysession said. “I call it the Beijing anomaly. Water inside the rock goes down with the sinking slab and it’s quite cold, but it heats up the deeper it goes, and the rock eventually becomes unstable and loses its water. The water then rises up into the overlying region, which becomes saturated with water.

“If you combine the volume of this anomaly with the fact that the rock can hold up to about 0.1 percent of water, that works out to be about an Arctic Ocean’s worth of water.”

In recent years, seismologists have become excited at the possibility of a feature like the Beijing anomaly. The availability of vast amounts of digital seismograms made possible the discovery by Wysession and Lawrence, who wrote many thousands of lines of computer codes to do the analyses.

Seventy percent of the earth is covered by water, which is very important for the earth’s geology, serving as a lubricant that allows efficient convection and plate tectonics and the continental collisions that form mountains.

“Water is like a lubricant, constantly oiling the machine of mantle convection which then drives plate tectonics and causes the continents to move about Earth’s surface,” Wysession said. “Look at our sister planet, Venus. It is very hot and dry inside Venus, and Venus has no plate tectonics. All the water probably boiled off, and without water, there are no plates. The system is locked up, like a rusty Tin Man with no oil.”

Incidentally, nuclear physicist Robert Gentry’s pioneering research into polonium radiohalos is also consistent with the Biblical chronology of a youth earth featuring a crust instantly created in a cool condition. Gentry, like Brown above, began his career as an evolutionist but later embraced creationism. Related research conducted by the Institute for Creation Research/Creation Research Society found that accelerated radioactive decay occurred during a major heating event that coincided with the Flood. The RATE Group’s research casts serious doubts on the validity of radiometric dating, which was already fraught with built-in assumptions stemming from an arbitrary and unscientific selection of vast geochronological ages more than 100 years earlier. Until the early 1800s most scientists held to a young earth view. The Apostle Peter, above, prophesied that at the end of the present age there would be a widespread rejection of the Biblical worldview. He wasn’t wrong.

    >Hmm, interesting. I myself believe that Atheistic agitators who are not openly Communist have always had mostly Leftist views. Such as Christopher Hitchens as an example who is an Atheistic agitator and has gone against any religion even Judaism.Atheistic agitators who are not openly Communists can be backed and supported by Communists such as the Communist Party USA supporting the movie-the Golden Compass to which the author of the book version is another Atheistic agitator who wishes to kill G-d and is likely not just anti-Christian but anti-Jewish in terms of religious perspective.There’s also a major difference between Christians and Jews in spite of Conservatism bringing them closer. Such as us Jews believe our Messiah has yet to come and believe that Christians are just former Jews who left the flock.

    >I have also added the network of radical Occultist and Satanist-Alexister Crowley to my Subversive Organizations List. Feel free to take a look at it and add these Freemason groups.I have also mentioned that the British Empire had allegedly been controlling early U.S. revolutionaries such as Benjamin Franklin as it turns out he was an allege British agent and also a known Freemason radical to which the British in spite of their Loyalist factions leaving their former North American colonial pocession now known as the United States used people like Franklin to have prevent their former colonies from joining the Illumanti-led French Revolution.

    >Hi, mah. I appreciate your regular comments. I am aware that Jews are still awaiting their Messiah. May I respectfully present several verses from both the Old and New Testaments that prove that Yeshua is that Messiah? Yeshua came the first time as a suffering savior to atone for the sins of the world, which includes Israel. He’s coming a second time as a conquering king to set up his one thousand year reign in Jerusalem, in which Israel will be exalted among the nations and those who are born again believers in this present age (Jew and Gentile) will assist Yeshua in that reign.Daniel 9:24-26 clearly predicts that Messiah would come the first time 483 years after King Cyrus of Persia issued the decree to rebuild the Temple:Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. Yeshua fufilled that prophecy and about 100 other OT prophecies. The other 200 OT Messianic prophecies will be fulfilled in his second coming.Romans 11:25-27 teaches that “blindness” in part has happened to Israel while God deals with the Gentiles (and individual Jews) as the church. After the church is removed from the world via its corporate bodily translation to heaven, the Lord will again turn his attention to Israel for the purpose of her redemption and glorification:For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.A glorious future awaits Israel after a short period of testing.You may ask: What about keeping God’s law? Does this not justify man before God? The Apostle Paul(aka Saul of Tarsus) praises God’s law in Romans 7:12: Wherefore the law [is] holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good. At the same time, the Holy Spirit showed Paul that he could not keep God’s holy law perfectly and therefore needed a substitute, hence, Messiah. In that light, Galatians 2:16 teaches: Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. Apart from the regenerating grace of God through the Holy Spirit I had no understanding of these truths at one time.Best regards,PT
