Geologists Puzzled by Unstable Mountain

The dominant philosophy of secular geologists is uniformitarianism, where "the present is the key to the past", and the slow, gradual processes we see today have remained constant. Wielders of this viewpoint often lasso themselves, because the long-age views pack a passel of problems.


Geologists expect mountains to be stable, and are surprised when they do not fit uniformitarian assertions.

(I was unable to find a usable picture of the mountain, so here are some rocks)
Way over yonder in Norway, Mt. Mannen ("the man") is not behaving itself and is called "unstable". Bad parenting? The economy? What caused this? Anyway, there have been alarms that the mountain is in danger of "collapsing", which really means a huge landslide could suddenly happen and destroy properties and kill people. Geologists tried to do some controlled intervention and make the slide happen. When something occurred, it was not what they were hoping for because it was too small.

Secular geologists are imposing their philosophy on the mountain, which they expect to be cooperative and sit quietly for millions of years. Observed facts contradict their uniformitarian viewpoint. If they would cowboy up and consider a young earth perspective, including how the geological features were primarily formed by the Genesis Flood (catastrophism), they would most likely be less surprised by what they observe. Perhaps geologists could make better predictions, too. Just a thought.
Mount Mannen in Norway, 320 km northwest of the capital Oslo, has made headlines more than once, even here in Finland, where I live. But not because of its respectable 1,300 m (4,300 ft) height, since nearly 300 peaks in Norway exceed the 2,000 m (6,500 ft) mark. It is because it is regarded as an ‘unstable mountain’.

Mannen has been closely monitored since 2009 as part of an emergency preparedness service; authorities are prepared for a massive landslide of up to 100 million cubic metres. This would be bad news for the Rauma Line—a railway operating in the danger zone. It is estimated that it would take only a small fraction of the potential slide—‘only’ 2 million cubic metres—for the debris to cross the valley and likely devastate buildings and damage the Rauma Line.
To read the rest, rock on over to "Norway’s live ‘unstable’ Mount Mannen surprises geologists".

This short video was presumably taken from the railway line
that is in danger of a landslide from Mt. Mannen.
