Correcting the Secular Story of Stone Mountain

Way down south in Dixie in these here United States, there is a lump just outside Atlanta. Looks like a rock was dropped there, and it has the uninspiring name of Stone Mountain. Because it is. It is not huge in comparison to other mountains, but a popular attraction. It has a huge but controversial carving of Confederate heroes that is easily seen.

The Genesis Flood is a better explanation for the origin of Stone Mountain, Georgia, than erroneous uniformitarian views.

The part that is of interest to us is the formation of Stone Mountain. Uniformitarian geologists have the view that granite takes a mighty long time to form, but that was based on philosophy, and has been refuted by evidence and real science. The mountain used to be magma way down yonder below the surface of the earth, then it was moved to the surface during the Genesis Flood. This happened quickly, and is yet another piece of evidence for a young earth.
Stone Mountain, which is about 8 km (5 miles) around its base, is part of a huge pluton—a gigantic granite body. When you stand on top, it is hard to imagine that the mountain was once many kilometres beneath the earth’s surface. Also, it is hard to imagine that the mountain was a subterranean ‘ocean’ of red-hot molten rock more than 600°C (1100°F) in temperature. The magma originated when movements in the earth’s crust partly melted rocks much deeper down. Movements bent and folded the whole countryside, pushing up the Appalachian Mountains, and squeezing the magma up through the crust, to pool near the surface.
