In a hilarious twist which shows how the popular science narrative of godless existence (SciPop) is unraveling, scientists have been backed into such a tight corner that it's necessary to invoke the oceanic dispersal of dinosaurs.
Christians are making major strides in how they're able to account for the stratigraphic column as being the remnants of Noah's flood. They're embracing the material and have developed some technical proficiency.
As the waters evaporated after Noah's flood the cooling effect caused equatorial and polar glaciation. There were temperate zones in the Northern and Southern hemisphere.
The wind which God sent to evaporate the flood water caused rapid cooling and the formation of equatorial and polar ice. Evidence of equatorial glaciation is arbitrarily assigned to the Permian arbitrary time hack (ATH).
If you use the Bible to deduce something and conclude that there needs to be something else in the Bible to confirm it, you search the Bible to find what you deduced was needed. If you find it, you're on the right track.
The tectonic plates formed at least 201 years before the birth of Abraham. Noah's flood was at least 302 years before Abraham. So much for the geological timescale.
It's possible to be precise with the timing of the tectonic breakup of Pangaea. The time-lapse from Noah's flood to Peleg, and from Peleg to Abraham is recorded in Genesis 11:10-26.
Tectonic breakup of Pangaea had to be after Babel. It's a logically certain conclusion. It's the only way to reconcile the Bible with the physical evidence. The result is a perfect harmonization of scripture with science.
The Pangaea super-continent was broken into continental landmasses sometime after the tower of Babel. People and fauna were dispersed to all corners of Pangaea and then the tectonic plates formed.
We can combine Noah's flood, Peleg's tectonics and knowledge of the process of devolution to help us clear up what level of variability is represented by the Biblical word KIND.
