Journey to the Center of the Earth

Home > Pastor's Page > Journey to the Center of the Earth

In the beginning, God created heaven and earth.

Shortly thereafter God was in receipt of a notice to show cause why he shouldn’t be cited for failure to file an environmental impact statement. He was granted a temporary planning permit for the project, but was stymied by a Cease and Desist Order for the earthly part.  At the hearing, God was asked why he began his earthly project in the first place. He replied that he just liked to be creative.

Then God said, “Let there be light.”

Officials immediately demanded to know how the light would be made. Would it require strip mining? What about thermal pollution?  God explained that the light would come from a huge ball of fire, and provisional approval was granted with the proviso that no smoke would result.  The authorities required the issuance of a building permit, and (to conserve energy) required that the light be left off half the time.  God agreed, saying he would call the light “Day” and the darkness “Night.” Officials replied that they were only interested in protecting the environment, not in semantics.

God said, “Let the earth bring forth green herb and such yielding seed.”  The Environmental Protection Agency  agreed, so long as only native seed was used.

Then God said, “Let the waters bring forth creeping creatures having life; and the fowl that may fly over the earth.”  Officials pointed out this would require approval from the Department of Game coordinated with the Wildlife Federation and Audubon Society.

Everything went along smoothly until God declared that he intended to complete the project in six days.  Officials informed God it would take at least 200 days to review his many waiver applications and environmental impact statements. After that there would have to be a public hearing, and then there would be a ten to twelve month probationary period before….

At this point, God created Hell.

When it comes to God’s creation, the most mysterious part for scientists is not that which is above us or that which is around us, but that which is below us – the 1,800 miles or 2,900 kilometres from the top of the earth’s land crust to the middle of the earth’s fiery core.  And the deepest man has ever dug?  The Kola Super-Deep Borehole in Russia.  Begun in 1970, the 9-inch diameter hole reached a depth of 7.5 miles before being abandoned in 2005 after thirty-five years of digging and millions in cost.  Today, the site sits abandoned.

But now some very big news from way down under.  First, a little background.  The only way geologists can really tell what the earth is like below is by what it sends up above, via volcanos (thus the stones that come shooting out are of immense interest to geologists).

However, up till now, the earth has only been coughing up shallower stones, which according to geologists, are from up to 200 miles or 322 kilometres deep.

nd these rocks (known as olivines) have no moisture in them.  This in turn has led scientists to look to an ice-laden comet (or comets) crashing into the earth as the source of the world’s water supply.  But the chemical make-up of the comet’s liquid does not match the chemical make-up of the water in our oceans and rivers.

Then along came Canadian and University of Alberta science professor, Graham Pearson.  He is a geo-chemist and the world’s leading expert in subterranean geology.  And it was while leading an international expedition of geologists to study volcano rocks in South America that Dr. Pearson found  it – the first stone discovered to come from (according to geologists) more than 400 miles/622 kilometres or double what up to now has ever been seen.  Known as a ringwoodite (in honour of a famous Australian geologist, Alfred Ringwood) it, unlike the shallower olivines, did contain moisture, much of it.  This in turn led the world-wide team of geologists to issue a statement that a major depository of water exists in the deep earth that is at least one to three times the size of our oceans (their technical reasoning for such is far beyond my comprehension).  But even more, these evolutionists proclaimed that there’s now no question the world’s water supply came from here and not from comets (since the chemical make-up of the moisture in the ringwoodite is the same as the water we have) and  that in this area our science books need to be changed.

Why is this important?  Because for years evolutionists (including geologists like those above) have mocked creationists over their biblical teaching that in the creation (Genesis 2:6) and in the flood (Genesis 7:11) water came from out of the earth and did not come from outer space.  But who’s laughing now?  The truth is – the earth just got a lot bluer and so did a lot of evolutionists
