It is taught that the mountains that we now see are a result of tremendous forces equal to a thousand times the power of earthquakes that we experience today. Consider for a moment the power necessary to shoot Everest over 29,000 feet into the atmosphere. When the mountains were being formed there had to be upheaval unlike anything we can imagine - and yet wisdom was there when it happened and when the mountains themselves settled and found their current place. Often at the base of these giants there are hills that arose as well - some saying that they were the wrinkling of the earth from the shock of the mountains themselves.
One of the interesting problems that old earth evolutionists (and old earth creationists too) have is the amazing lack of erosion on the major mountain ranges of the world. If these massive formations were as old as evolutionary theory suggests, there should be far more wind and weather related erosion on them. From what we actually see, these major ranges are honestly . . . rather young. Some say they may be as young as 7000-10,000 years old. This would put them within the age range of biblical creation if we accept a young earth version of creation like the Bible depicts.
Even more amazing is the way that the Scriptures portray the flood - with one of the final events being the covering of the mountains with the flood waters. Once again, the wisdom of God is either going to be clearly refuted by what we see on these mountains - or God will be seen as true. What we find is truly amazing. There seems to be indicators even at the highest levels of our mountains of a worldwide flood. But there are also other indications of real problems with an old earth (meaning billions of years) view of our world. That has to do with "dust." But that will be a topic for tomorrow's Proverb of the day.
Wisdom was born before these mountains were settled and the hills brought forth. God's wisdom was there to direct all this activity as the topography of the world was first formed. I know this may shock some, but the account of God's Word and the timing and way these wonderful giants were made - is amazingly consistent. Why it is almost as if the wisdom of the One who gave us the biblical account is as if an eyewitness were there. Hmmm - maybe He was . . . just maybe He was.
