[quote=adstrinity]I thought you would.
Well, as long as this makes things easier for China when they decide to take over.
I do not believe it has been determined that “the earth is actually billions of years old”.
Enlighten me, please.
The magna below the earth’s crust circulates according to currents that are generated by the earth’s magnetism. This motion causes shifts in the cooled crust of the earth. The cooled crust not only includes land, but ocean floors. Thus, even ocean floors are floating upon the magna. Given that water resides above the ocean floor, water is a passenger on the shifting continents. That you would suggest that continents drifted because of the Flood shows a great deal of ignorance about geology.
The movement of tectonic plates may be at odds with one another, causing a great deal of stress. When that stress is released, the earth’s crust gives way suddenly and moves–we call that an earthquake. Most earthquakes occur along the boundaries of the tectonic plates, but some also occur elsewhere, as there is variance of crust movement within a tectonic plate, as well.
To explain what is happening to the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, there is a huge fault line running down the middle of the Atlantic ocean. In this particular location, the plates are spreading and magna is continually coming to the surface to cool. Thus the Atlantic ocean is becoming wider. As the American plates are pushed West, they collide with the Pacific and Nazca plates. When plates collide, several things can occur, including mountain formation or sometimes, one plate will submerge under the other. For long periods, the plates are “stuck” against each other, and finally when the pressure to too great to bear any longer, they give way and the earth moves (earthquake).
In spite of the damage that the worst earthquakes can create, the earth moves very little at a time. (Again Thailand only moved 27 centimeters last Dec.) It really takes a very long time for any significant movement to occur.
