Obscuring the Origin of Continental Crusts

 Secular geologists have long struggled to fit the origin of Earth's continental crust into their uniformitarian paradigm. While scientists can see ocean ridges giving up oceanic crust at the seafloor, continents are composed of a different kind of crust. The hot filling for the crusts is actually the magma underneath. 

Of course, these geologists get ideas and then they try to make them look plausible. They have assertions based on what their naturalistic narrative demands, but their views are seldom supported by evidence.

A study relied on the assumption that the crusts all popped up at once 2.5 billion years ago, but there is no evidence for this. Imagination, you betcha. Based on that forming-at-the-same-time assumption, only a comparatively small belt of rock was tested. It did not go well.
The origin of the continental crust continues to baffle secular geologists who often refer to this mystery as the "holy grail of geology." The outer surface of the Earth is composed of numerous tectonic plates that are cold and brittle, compared to the hot mantle below. No other planet seems to have a similar plate system. In addition, Earth's plates are composed of two distinctly different types of crust: oceanic and continental. Explaining the reason for the unique crust and plates on Earth has been the subject of on-going research and debate for decades.
