We have another wonderful lesson from Cheri Fields. Today we are learning about Underwater Volcanoes!
Did you know somewhere around 80% of the volcanic eruptions take place under water? Even today, sea volcanoes are actively changing the crust of the earth and influencing our world.
My kids and I were learning about earth history using an Usborne book, so I could show them what most western children are being taught.
it’s impossible to send a probe so deep.
Then we talked about the volcanoes geologists know were very active in the past and the Ice Age we all know happened.
The most fun part was finding videos online so we could watch mini volcanoes erupting underwater today!
Go check this YouTube video out on Underwater Volcano Eruptions.
There’s another short video of a boatload of people watching an eruption close to the surface. You can see the steam, dust, and power of a tiny eruption happening right in front of you. (BTW, I would have started the boat turning about 15 seconds before the guy noticed. Wild nature isn’t a safe place!)
Creation Science Today (a ministry new to me) has a cool computer simulation of earth’s cross-section before, during, and after the Flood. It’s simplified, as all replicas must be, but effective. They just don’t mention the subterranean water chambers Dr. Walt Brown does so well. Scroll 2/3s down THIS PAGE to see what I mean.
The LORD sits upon the flood; yes, the LORD sits King for ever. Psalm 29:10
