June 3, 2009Mercury,
Based on science Mt. Everest is growing about 1 inch per year. 6,000 inches is 500 feet. So maybe Mt. Everest was 28,500 feet tall 6,000 years ago. That is still a lot of water that can''''t be explained away.
Yes, I can explain why there are fossils from sea creatures on the top of tall mountains, at it is all explained by science. The earth does change, over many millions of years, and mountains grow where there were none before. Just google plate tectonics and mountain formation.
For Mt. Everest to have grown from below sea level to 29,000 feet in 6,000 years it would need to grow at a pace of 58 inches, **or** 4.83 feet PER YEAR, EVERY YEAR since time began. Sir Edmund Hillary first climbed to the top of Mt. Everest in 1953. If the mountain was growing that fast it would have been 271 feet lower than it is today.
The height was determined to by 29,002 feet in 1852. It is now at 29,029 **or** 27 feet higher in 147 years. This is 2 inches a year not 58.
June 3, 2009perhaps plane when the world was first formed the continents were moving faster, and by newtons laws the continents have slowed dramatically...
hey its just a thought
but im glad you pointed out that mt Everest is growing.... was it growing faster 6000 years ago, i am thinking yes... but who had records then? Ummmmmm....nobody
June 3, 2009Plane... that is based on an assumption that the rate of growth has always been the same.... has it? can science prove that it this is the case? *or*... is there a chance that in an ever changing earth that the rate of growth has changed over the thousands of years of this planets existence? I would think that an open minded person like yourself would at least look at the option. Even I am open to the posibility of an older earth. I just haven''t seen anything credible enough to change my mind.
June 4, 2009Mt. Everest is " Evolving "!!!
Sorry. I thought I un-checked this thread along with the others.
June 4, 2009Hey... the video is completely bogus so we had to talk about something
June 4, 2009Oooooooooooooooooo...Forums manager?? When''d that happen??
June 4, 2009Thanks! I got that promotion about 2 weeks ago. OC got the same promotion
I guess if ya can''t beat them.... join them!
June 4, 2009Congrats, but even though you are now "the man" I still like you.
June 4, 2009I''''m not sure where I stand on this subject. I think theres plenty of scientific data to show that the earth is millions of years old but after being a church goer for many years I still have lots of problems with the Bible & the God created earth in 7 days & then on the 6th day created Adam & eve. Where did pre-man, dino''''s & all that come in @. As far as mountain peaks I think science has proved that the earth has changed extremely over the past few million years so mt. everest @ 1 time could have been under water *or* created by the shifting of plates but more than likely was a volcano...just a guess but I do watch history channel a lot & other documentarys that try & explain the history of earth.
