    After reviewing acknowledgments of God from all 50 state constitutions, one is faced with the prospect that maybe, the ACLU and the out-of-control federal courts are wrong! If you found this to be "Food for thought.." copy and send to as many as you think will be enlightened as I hope you were.

    Please note that at no time is anyone told that they MUST worship God.

    "Those people who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants." - William Penn

    </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>SYRACUSE, N.Y. — A 30-mile maze canyons in Antarctica was carved out of bedrock by the catastrophic draining of subglacial lakes during global warming between 12 million and 14 million years ago, according to university researchers who warn a similar event today could have serious environmental consequences.
    Although scientists have previously theorized that the Labyrinth region in southern Victoria Land was created by water released from lakes that had formed under glaciers, researchers at Syracuse University and Boston University say they found geological evidence to bracket the timing of the last major flooding and link it to a global warming trend at the time.
    The scientists pinpointed the timing of the last subglacial flood by dating volcanic ash preserved on bedrock surfaces, said Laura Webb, a professor of earth sciences at Syracuse who took part in the study.
    The Labyrinth is a network of ice-free bedrock channels and scoured terrain emerging from beneath the East Antarctic Ice Sheet. It is one of a series of large channel networks that cross the Transantarctic Mountains. Some of the chasms are up to 800 feet deep and thousands of feet wide. Scientists have long speculated that the volume of water required to create the channels was far more than that produced by melting glaciers.
    Webb said it appeared the subglacial flooding was not continuous but episodic, and likely lasted days or months at a time.
    <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=430><TBODY><TR><TD class=adHead></TD></TR><TR><TD><SCRIPT type=text/javascript>adsonar_pid=256757;adsonar_ps=621666;adsonar_zw=440;adsonar_zh=120;adsonar_jv='ads.adsonar.com';</SCRIPT><SCRIPT language=JavaScript src="/js/adsonar.js"></SCRIPT><FORM id=qas_frm style="DISPLAY: none; MARGIN: 0px" name=qas_frm action="" method=get target=""></FORM></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
    In an article on the study that appeared last month in the journal "Geology," Webb and her colleagues estimated the flood raged with approximately 1,000 times the volume of water flowing over Niagara Falls. At that rate, it would take Lake Ontario, for instance, about a month to drain, she said.
    Suzanne Baldwin, another Syracuse professor who was one of the study's principal researchers, warned that the ancient episode has implications for global climate change today.
    Subglacial lakes in Antarctica were first identified in the 1960s, some sealed beneath up to 2 1/2 miles of ice. Since then, more than 150 have been discovered. But it is thought thousands may exist. The largest is Lake Vostok, similar in size to Lake Ontario. Another is the size of Rhode Island.
    Baldwin and her colleagues believe there must be a more complete investigation of how a similar catastrophic release might alter the present-day environment.
    Such a massive release of fresh water from the subglacial lakes would affect the stability of the East Antarctic ice sheet, the circulation of water in the Southern Ocean, and global weather patterns, all of which could change the balance of the Earth's ecosystems, she said.
    Dominic Hodgson, a geologist at the British Antarctic Survey, said formation of the Labyrinth has been attributed to subglacial meltwater since at least 1993, but the Syracuse study provided a "better estimate" of the timing of its creation.
    Hodgson, who has written extensively about global warming and its impact on Antarctica, said some lake water discharges are contemporary. One such rapid discharge occurred in 1997-1998 when a one-mile-square lake emptied into two other downstream lakes under the ice sheet over a period of 16 months.
    "It is very unlikely that the volume of these discharges would equal those of the Miocene (epoch), when the Labyrinth formed, because the ice sheet then was much more dynamic and temperate and therefore likely contained — and discharged — substantially greater volumes of subglacial meltwater," Hodgson said.
    The British scientist said that present day global warming has not had any measured effects on the volume or movement of subglacial meltwater beneath the Antarctic ice sheet "so it is premature to predict a new era of flooding as a result of global warming."

    It actually does have something to do with your post.

    It's how far science goes to try to explain away the Flood. The Flood is the only thing that can explain all the trees falling at once and becoming coal. The Flood is the only thing that can explain all that water moving. Science tries to tell us it is 12 million years old, like the Grand Canyon, but they have found pine pollen at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. In the rock.

    The most apparent record of the Flood is in the geologic record, something everybody can see or study in school. A worldwide Flood would have covered the earth with water that would have been affected by wind, currents in the oceans, gravity of the moon. Currents would have eroded high ground and silted in low areas, some with as much as thousands of feet of silt. The <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com[​IMG]<st1:place>Grand Canyon</st1:place> is the prime example of this; the thousands of feet of strata were deposited over the period of one year, not millions. Pollen spores have been found deep in the <st1:place>Grand Canyon</st1:place>, according to the scientists, that would have been deposited in the pre-Cambrian strata.The <st1:place>Grand Canyon</st1:place> was cut over a span of hundreds of years, before the sediment compressed into rock, not millions of years.
    The Flood can explain something uniformist concept science cannot, the formation of fossil beds. Billions of plants and animals fell and were quickly buried in sedimentary deposits that preserved them as fossils. The wooly mammoths and other large animals all lived far in the north, where nothing grows today. Many were frozen in place, all destroyed at one time, when the vapor canopy started collapsing. Fish, turtles, insects and mammals, trees and flowers have all been found perfectly preserved in coal seams. There is a photograph in another book of a perfectly preserved tree standing for eternity protruding through several layers of coal. Impossible to explain, uniformist science has to ignore those as anomalies, but they just help prove the Flood. Human footprints have been found in or around dinosaur footprints, doesn’t fit science’s timeline for the dinosaur’s extinction, but it fits in the Flood account. The tides and heating effect account for the coal and oil deposits. The Columbian Plateau, several thousand feet thick of lava, defies scientists trying to explain what formed it instead of looking at who formed it.​
