That’s what science, that’s what modern geology, teaches us and of course it sounds eminently sensible and correct.
It doesn’t actually reflect the reality of what’s really going on with the planet’s mountain ranges and rock formations. Writing in Our Mobile Earth, geologist Reginald Aldworth Daly revealed that:
“During the building of the Alps, gigantic slabs of rock, thousands of feet thick, hundreds of miles long, and tens of miles wide, were thrust up and then over, relatively to the rocks beneath…
“The visible rocks of the Northern Alps of Switzerland have thus been shoved northward distances of the order of 100 miles. In a sense, the Alps used to be on the present site of northern Italy.”
How on earth did rock stratas dated to 65 million years ago (at it’s oldest) come to be lying on top of rock dated 145 million years ago (at its oldest)? There are two options: either, the dating of rock according to the fossils they contain is just plain wrong, OR the mountains were actually physically shifted, intact, into a new location.
Let’s be clear that geologists - and anyone with any regard whatsoever for evolution - could never accept the first option, even if was clear as day. So, even in the scientific world, the fantastic idea that a number of older mountains were somehow physically moved from one location, and set atop more recent mountains is the SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY’S own view of what most have occurred.
“The problem of mountain-making is a vexing one,” concurred Harvard Professor FK Mather, writing in Science in 1942. “Many [mountains] are composed of tangentially compressed and overthrust rocks that indicate scores of miles of circumferential shortening in the Earth’s crust. Radial shrinkage is woefully inadequate to cause the observed amount of horizontal compression…Geologists have not found a satisfactory escape from this dilemma.”
Midrash Mechilta, Yitro, haChodesh 4:
“When God descended to give the Torah to Yisrael, the mountains rushed to dispute with each other. Each one wished the Torah to be given upon it. Mount Tavor travelled from Beit Aylim, and Mount Carmel crossed the sea from Spain to the Sinai Desert in order to be chosen for mattan Torah. Though their candidacies were rejected, their honor of the Torah was rewarded by their being replanted in Eretz Yisrael”
Midrash Yalkut Shimoni 1:47:
“In the days of Enosh ben Shet, the third generation after creation, people began to anger the creator with new religious practices…Consequently, God brought on them three punishments: First, the ocean broke out and flooded a third of the globe. Second, whereas previously the earth had been entirely level, in those days it became mountainous, rocky and hilly (in the future, yet to come the world will be returned to its original level state.) Third, God reduced the height of men.
Lets’ be clear that we’re not just talking about one weird rock formation here; the examples of massive mountains moving tens and even hundreds of miles across land occur in a great many places in the world, including:
- The Alps moving a hundred miles to the North.
- “All of Glacier National Park in Montana and all the Rocky Mountain area up to the Yellowhead Pass in Alberta moved for many miles”
- The mountains in Western Scotland
- The entire span of the Norwegian mountains
To name but a few. All the mountains weigh billions of tons. Are the geologists really expecting us to believe that some friction between tectonic plates or an earthquake - even a major earthquake - catapulted all these mountains a hundred miles away?
To quote Velikovsky: “No force acting from inside the earth, puffing inward or pushing outward, could have created these overthrusts. Only twisting could have produced them. It could hardly have occurred if the rotation and revolution of our planet had never been disturbed.”
Here's what plasma physicist James McCanney has to say about the subject:
 George McCready Price, writing in Common-sense Geology, 1922
“During the close passage of a large comet, the ‘gravitational wave’ is sufficient to move waves of land and rock at speeds in excess of a thousand miles per hour, across land.”
Stone and bone artefacts used by ‘Stone Age Man’ - conventionally dated to the Pleistocene Era, or Ice Age - were found at the very top of the Alps, in a number of caverns. Why would Stone Age Man chose to make his home at the top of a freezing cold, 8,000 foot high mountain?
Amazing as it sounds, there is an abundance of evidence to show that the Alps and other mountains, arose and ended up in their present locations within the last few thousand years - well within the era of modern man.
“Mountain uplifts amounting to many thousands of feet have occurred within the Pleistocene epoch [Ice Age] itself,” explained Professor Flint, in Glacial Geology and the Pleistocene Epoch. And this happened in: “the Cordillerian mountain system in both North and South America, the Alps-Caucausus-Central Asian system, and many others.”
Writing about the Asian mountains in Research in Asia II, explorer Bailey Willis said: “The great mountain chains challenge credulity by their extreme youth.”
In the next post, we’ll explore in more detail how the geological data and fossil evidence from mountain ranges across the world, including the towering peak of Mount Everest itself, poses one of the single biggest challenges to modern science and its ‘enlightened’ geologists’ view of how and when the world came about.
