    How long before China claims it starts trying to build an airbase on it?

    Many of these Islands get worn down over a few weeks or months and disappear.

    I know, it's not entirely fair.

    For it to be fair they'd have to dredge the bottom of the surrounding sea to "make" the island, then claim it, build on it, and then try and claim it's inhabitable enough to have it's own territorial waters.

    No problem. Some policies need picking on.

    Doesn't that give support for creationism?

    Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so...And the evening and the morning were the third day.

    Sounds like a creation story based on the appearance of a volcanic island...

    All volcanic island erode, sink under their weight,
    and are eventually subducted for recycling.

    I've noticed the same thing. Now Kilauea is joining the party. I too read about the New Mexico situation. I was surprised to learn that we have an active volcano here in Colorado, in Dotsero on the western slope. Wonder if it will start erupting?
