Study backs Flood account on origin of water

global warmingA recent international scientific study corroborates the Genesis 7 account — of the “fountains of the great deep” bursting forth from the Earth’s crust to flood the Earth — as describing  vast underground chambers to be the source water found on our planet today.

Dr. D. Graham Pearson, who serves as the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Arctic Resources at the University of Alberta-Edmonton, says the new scientific evidence proves that ocean-sized masses of water that haven’t escaped their subterranean chambers still exist underneath the Earth.

"It's actually the confirmation that there is a very, very large amount of water that's trapped in a really distinct layer in the deep Earth," Pearson maintained, according to Live Science.

Pearson, a Canadian geochemist who was the winner of the prestigious Lindgren Medal of the Society of Economic Geologists in 1999, asserts that as much water lies underneath the earth as we see on the surface today.

"It translates into a very, very large mass of water, approaching the sort of mass of water that's present in all the world's oceans," the former research fellow of Carnegie University in Washington, D.C., asserted.

The former council member of the European Association of Geochemistry led his team’s research to discover the massive amounts of water miles beneath the Earth’s surface.

"The ultimate origin of water in the Earth's hydrosphere is in the deep Earth — the mantle," Pearson’s team of scientists explained in their report that was published in the scientific journal, Nature, which was quoted by Christian News.

Pearson, who is one of the world’s leading scientists in diamond studies with more than 100 peer-reviewed publications, was able to come to the conclusion with his research team after studying diamonds they discovered in Brazil, which originated from the Earth’s mantle — located in the layer between the Earth’s crust and its core.

"The presence of hydrous ringwoodite in a diamond from transition-zone depths supports the view that high fluid activity, notably that of water, has a key role in the genesis of ultradeep diamonds," the scientists observed in their report.

A “major repository for water” was also noted in the study, which claims that it is located at a depth of approximately 250 to 410 beneath the Earth’s surface in the mantle.

Biblical origins

For thousands of years, the Bible has pointed to subterranean water as the origin of the Earth’s vast amounts of water, with specific reference going to Genesis 2:6, which says, that “streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground.”

Even more significantly, the Bible tells of the great Noahic Flood several chapters later, which resulted in the entire Earth being submerged in water before its massive mountains were formed in the cataclysmic event. Scripture describes the water shooting out of the Earth’s crust into the atmosphere and falling down in a torrential downpour to deluge the entire planet.

“In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month — on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened.” —Genesis 7:11 (NIV)

Evolution gives alternative theories about the origins of the Earth’s water, including asteroids, comets, and the atmosphere, but such accounts have proven to be problematic on many scientific counts.

Center for Scientific Creation Director Dr. Walt Brown has published studies for decades pointing to the subterranean origins of the Earth’s water from the Flood, which he explains through his hydroplate theory in the OneNewsNow article Does this Flood theory blow Bill Nye’s attack on creation out of the water?
