  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.

    Continental Building : Scientific Belief vs Reality

    Science:
    Climate Changes Can Wear Down Mountains Faster Than They Are Built
    "The researchers spent over a decade drilling into these sediments to get a better picture of how erosion rates changed through the mountains' history."
    "What wasn't clear before was how quickly erosion could tear down what tectonics were building up."
    So Scientific knowledge of the rate and expanse of erosion is NOT constant.

    Mountain ranges evolve, respond to Earth's climate, study shows
    "Erosion caused by glaciation during ice ages can, in the right circumstances, wear down mountains faster than plate tectonics can build them, groundbreaking new research has shown."

    Wearing out mountains
    "Nothing could be further from the truth according to a team of US and New Zealand geologists, who have discovered that New Zealand’s Southern Alps are eroding at a pace that sets a geologic speed record"

    So basically do we throw out the Scientific books on how long it took to form continents?
    They are not guessing, but they are finding new Realities of speed and forces in tectonics and it seems all the time.
    Chemical reactions take into account the environment. a Weaker solution will take longer to wear down rocks than a stronger solution.
    Atmospheric conditions as well as plants, cold and rain come into effect.
    SO. Many variables.

    Just like my informal studying of Tornadoes, theres many variables that come together to allow something to happen and then it happens FAST.
    Chemical reactions are constant, But the rate, amount, temperature etc change the reaction all the time.
    Every day is different for the Global reactions.

    NOTE:
    East African Rift
    Showing volcanoes all along the rift valley.


    NOTE:
    https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-erosion-builds-mountains-2005-07/
    "One of the first comprehensive models of how mountains evolve over time was the Geographic Cycle, published in 1899."

    So where is Christianities (OUR) version of how the World was formed in 1899 using the Bible or are we in the "umm God doneit so I'm not gonna explanit" phase?

    Compare this to reality:
    "Moments you Wouldn't Believe !! Scary Natural Phenomena"

    (Dec 19, 2018 version as others have copied the vid.)
    0:30 Landslide
    1:50 Deluge
    3:03 Landslide
    3:30 Mountain Peak Collapse ** VERY Impressive

    Imagine 3:30 happening, then the resonance kicking off another peak collapse which kicks off another.
    Possibily could shorten an entire range in 1 day.
    *1 DAY*

    This is reality of continent building.
    Yes, theres slow wearing away of rocks via cold and chemicals, however IF (how would anyone know? but then why did God show these examples for video?)
    IF this happened, then Pangea just got a lot closer to Home?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?
