The vaporized ocean water would cool in the atmosphere and fall back to the planet as rainfall.As the cold material was dropping into the mantle, hot material would rise up along the trailing edges, causing seafloor expansion, and creating the distinctive streaking pattern we see on the ocean floor.This is seen clearly every time a long dormant volcano suddenly erupts, transforming the landscape, as did Mt. Is it possible that tectonic plates have not always moved at the rate your fingernails grow? Deformation Physics Laboratory tests have shown that materials like silicate minerals (the stuff the mantle is made out of) can have hugely varying degrees of viscosity depending on the temperature and amount of force that is applied to them.For these type of materials pressure can reach a threshold where the change in viscosity makes movement easier, and the friction from movement generates heat, which in turn lowers the viscosity even more in a thermal runaway pattern.We believe that this led to a thermal runaway instability which allowed for meters-per-second subduction, as postulated and modeled by Baumgardner”(ICR Article).As the front end of the ocean plate was falling towards the core it pulled the attached tectonic plate carrying the continents with it.
This has led many people to the fairly reasonable conclusion that the continents were at one point joined together in one place, forming a super-continent.
If you really want to look at all the advanced math involved in material physics they’re covered in plenty of detail in the technical paper “Runaway Subduction as the Driving Mechanism for the Genesis Flood”.
I’m not a geophysicist so I’ll be doing the summary for the average Joe (who has graduated college with a degree in Natural Sciences).
The result of his intensive research has been the development of Catastrophic Plate Tectonics (CPT), which is probably the most comprehensive scientific theory of the Genesis Flood today.
Starting Evidence If we look at a map of the Earth today you will notice that one either side of the Atlantic Ocean the continents look as though they would fit together quite neatly.
“Subducting slabs locally heated the mantle by deformation, lowering the viscosity of the mantle in the vicinity of the slabs.
