Lakebed in Greenland Surprises Secular Scientists

Yet another discovery does not fit the old-earth paradigm. We have seen it in many fields of science, and this time, Greenland is the culprit — just like the Bill Nye-defying canons. Scientists were surprised to find a dry lakebed under the ice.

It is a frequent occurrence to have secular geologists baffled by new discoveries. Creationists, no so much. Observed data fits Genesis Flood models.

To use the scientific vernacular, it is hugely big. The article linked below puzzled me at first because this was discovered by an observatory. Don't those things point upward and look out yonder? But they used satellites, and various scientific disciplines were involved to study the lakebed and indications for the amount of sediment.

Using biblical creation science models, the aftermath of the Genesis Flood precipitated (heh!) the conditions that caused the Ice Age. Cataclysmic flood waters carved out a lot of rock in a hurry, and these led to tremendous sedimentary deposits. Plug in the model with the Greenland data, and we have an explanation for this lakebed that is not at all surprising for creation geologists.
Scientists from the Lamont-Doherty Observatory discovered an enormous ancient lakebed beneath the ice on Greenland.1 Although scientists have found other lakes beneath the ice in Greenland and Antarctica, this was the first dry lakebed found below the ice.2 The new discovery came as a surprise to secular scientists, but it fits perfectly into the Flood narrative.

Using airborne radar, gravity, and magnetic data from NASA’s Operation IceBridge, the team identified a pre-glacial lakebed that is 2,740 square miles in area, about the same size as Delaware and Rhode Island combined. Though it’s dry now, at one time it contained water as deep as 820 feet.
