A Genesis Flood Geology Perspective of Tasmania and Australia

While it is useful to see the geology of the Grand Canyon and such in North America, head over to Australia for some fascinating things. If you go way south to Melbourne, you are on your way to the southernmost state of 'Straya, which is Tasmania. Head east, and you can find New Zealand. But not today.

Tassie has a thousand islands, the main one is comparable in size to Switzerland or West Virginia, but far less populous. Most of the others are tiny and unpopulated, or have special uses.

There are fascinating geological features in Australia and Tasmania. These can be best explained through creation science Flood geology models.

Secular geologists draw from their deep-time worldview to explain geological features, but many of those are tendentious and have serious weaknesses. They also tend to ignore interpretations of data that are not according to their uniformitarian beliefs. Creation scientists also operate from their worldview and interpret data based on the biblical narrative of the Genesis Flood, and understand the secular system.

People often have an incomplete understanding of the Flood, thinking that it only consisted of forty days of rain. There was a lot more involved than that and it took about a year. The Flood had a passel of erosion, depositions of sediments, recession, erosion, volcanism, tsunamis, and so on. The waters rose for 150 days, then 220 days of receding waters. Earth was fundamentally transformed. After the Flood, there were changes over the subsequent years that affected 'Straya and Tasmania.

A geological history, which is developed by mapping and investigating the geology of an area, provides a framework for understanding the area’s origin and development. In our culture, geological history is presented within a narrow way of thinking based on evolutionary assumptions about the past. However, the history of the Bible provides a powerful framework for geological history that gives new insights and appreciations. Within that history, Noah’s Flood is the main event that impacts our geological interpretations.

The global Flood catastrophe, both its cause and progress, involved enormous, ongoing tectonic movements of the earth’s crust. Energy released by these movements melted rocks to form magma. This, in turn, was pushed through the crust into dykes and sills and pooled in huge granite plutons.
