Catastrophic Plate Tectonics

Effects of the Flood

Part 3



This is Ken Ham, a publisher of the award-winning family magazine called Answers.


The Bible tells us that the world that existed before Noah’s Flood was utterly destroyed. Now, Genesis records the fountains of the great deep bursting forth. This was no gentle flood—it was a global catastrophe.

The mountain ranges we have today, like the Rockies and the Himalayas are the result of processes happening during the Flood. And so are the deep ocean trenches, like the Marianas trench.

You see, the Flood broke the supercontinent that existed before the Flood into continental plates. Now, These plates moved quickly and crashed into one another, forming mountains. Others were sucked under another plate, forming trenches.

The broken world we have today isn’t the world as God made it.
