New Scientific Discovery SUPPORTS Biblical Account Of Creation
In a surprising revelation for the scientific community, scientists have confirmed what Christians have believed for centuries: Earth’s supply of water was not ushered in by an errant asteroid but has existed from the beginning of time.
The Washington Post reported that a new study published on Thursday in Science magazine amended previous claims stating that Earth’s water arrived via a collision with a massive asteroid. Scientists now believe that water-rich grains of dust that formed the planet were retained and created the large amount of water seen today.
The scientists discovered that the only way to find the origin of ancient water molecules was by studying the most pristine examples of Earth’s crust: volcanic rocks found on Baffin Island.
“On their way to the surface, these rocks were never affected by sedimentary input from crustal rocks, and previous research shows their source region has remained untouched since Earth’s formation,” Lydia Hallis, lead study author and researcher at the University of Glasgow said.
What they discovered was astounding: if Earth’s water had come from an asteroid, the water found on the volcanic rocks would contain large amount of deuterium. However, since the rocks have remained untouched since creation and did not contain high levels of this substance, the evidence suggests the water has been around since the beginning.
