WHEN DID THIS BEACH APPEAR?

“Jonathan, how long did it take for this beach to
form on the edge of land?” asked Josephine.

We paused in our beach walk to bend down and pick up
a handful of golden sand grains. I let them pour
through my fingers. And what a soft, pleasant
sensation it was!

As the last grains fell away, I turned to my wife
and replied, “Did you know that SANDY BEACHES,
RAISED BEACHES, CAVES, COVES, ETC., do not need a
long time to form?”

EARTH FEATURES FORMED RAPIDLYsurtsey

In 1963, the new island of Surtsey appeared 45 miles
south of Iceland.

The following year a landing party found wide,
sandy beaches, precipitous crags, gravel banks,
lagoons, impressive cliffs resembling England’s White
Cliffs, and faulted cliffs and boulders worn smooth
by the surf, some of which were round. (Sigurdur
Thorarinsson, Surtsey.  Almenna, Reykjavik, Iceland,
1964)

What a shock for our assumptions about dating! (Of
course, I’m not talking here about boyfriend-
girlfriend dating.)surtsey3

BUT WHAT ABOUT STALACTITES?

Far from requiring vast aeons, stalactites can grow
quite rapidly, given sufficient mineral-laden water.

For centuries after the Great Flood, caves all over the
world received greater seepage of lime-bearing water
than now.

In those wetter times, deposits formed very rapidly.

Oh, I must tell you about what was discovered in the
basement of the Shrine of Remembrance in
Melbourne, Australia. Would you believe,large
stalactites were found to have grown in only 59 years.

One was sent to Monash University and another to the surtsey4
National University in Canberra.  They came back with
declared ages of from 120,000 years minimum to
300,000 years maximum.

When this dating was challenged, a university response
was:  “But they HAVE TO be that old!”

The massive vaults beneath the shrine resemble the
interior of limestone caves, with thousands of
stalactites and stalagmites.

In fact, stalactites have been found growing under
many modern buildings.

So whenever you see one hanging from a building,
try to figure out how many thousands of years old
you think that building is!

A skeptic may object, “Such stalactites prove nothing
because they are not made of calcium carbonate
(calcite) which takes long ages to form into
stalactites in caves.

Wrong! Recent X-ray diffractions of bridge stalactites
collected by Vance Nelson prove they ARE made of
calcium carbonate, and not of either gypsum or
hydromagnesite. Skeptic, bite your tongue!

BUT DIDN’T FOSSIL CORAL REEFS TAKES AGES TO FORM?

Are fossil coral reefs proof of long aeons of time?
No.  And they’re different from modern reefs.

“Closer inspection of many of these ancient carbonate
‘reefs’ reveals that they are composed largely of
carbonate mud with the larger skeletal particles
‘floating’ within the mud matrix.

“Conclusive evidence for a rigid framework does not
exist in most of the ancient carbonate mounds.”
(H. Blatt, G. Middleton and R. Murray, Origin of
Sedimentary Rocks. Prentice-Hall, 1972, p.410)

For example, the E1 Capitan Permian “reef complex”
fossil-bearing lithified lime transported into place
from elsewhere.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE VAST AGE OF OIL?

Oil (formed by fossilised animal matter) and coal
(vegetable matter) are said to be millions of years
old.  But are they?

Quite frequently, abnormally high pressures of up to
8,000 psi are encountered in deep oil wells.

Often when a new well is tapped, a gusher goes
spouting into the air due to the tremendous pressure
trapped below.

According to measured values of the permeability of
surrounding rock, such pressures would dissipate in
thousands, not millions of years.

If those oil deposits had been there for more than
5,000 years in some cases there would be no pressure
left!

Since the pressure is still there (often seeping at
the surface), the rock formations containing the oil
must be “young”.

BUT WHAT ABOUT ANTARCTIC ICE?

That apparently magic expression “a million years” is
likewise applied to the Antarctic ice cap.

Now 14,000 feet above sea level, the ice continues to
build up.

In 1930, Admiral Richard Byrd established a base in
Antarctica.

Since that time, the ice has piled higher, so that of
his 110 foot radio towers, just a few feet now
protrude above the icy surface.

At that rate, the ice cover is only 7,000 years old,
not a million.

But since the build-up must have been more rapid
during the Ice Age, it is probably very much younger
even than 7,000 years.

But what about the annual ice rings? Don’t they prove
long ages?

Not at all. You see, these are not NOT rings made
annually, but daily, by the alternating warmer day
and colder night temperatures.

This is now conclusively proved – despite misguided
articles in such places as “Scientific American”!!!
(See my report in “The Corpse Came Back”pages
236-238.)

THE MILLIONS OF YEARS THAT JUST AREN’T THERE

But what about canyons? Surely they have to be
millions of years old??

Many of us were taught in school that when you see a
canyon with a river running through it, you assume that
the river took a long time to erode the canyon.

How easy it is to come to wrong conclusions if you were
not present to see an event, and if you don’t have
access to all information!

When Mount St. Helens erupted in 1980, some associated
events accomplished in days, geological work that
would normally be interpreted as having taken millions
of years.

Little Grand Canyon (about a one-fortieth scale model
of the Grand Canyon) is around 100 feet deep and
somewhat wider.

Little Grand Canyon was formed IN ONE DAY from a
mud-flow that eroded material which had been blocking
the North Fork of the Toutle Riber.  The new river
subsequently flowed through the canyon formed by the
mud flow.

Engineers’ Canyon, 200 feet wide, was formed, with a
tiny stream flowing through it.  The stream did not
slowly form the canyon; this canyon formed the stream.

At Loowit Canyon, mud blasted through hard rock to cut
the canyon in a short time.

Perhaps we should realise that engineers have a tool
used to cut steel, which basically uses water under
pressure.

Likewise, here, in this blast zone of the Mt. st. Helens
volcanic eruption, water, mud and steam, under pressure,
produced results in a very short time that evolutionists
are telling the world would take millions of years.

In Little Grand Canyon, a hurricane velocity wind of
100 miles per hour (160 kilometres per hour) laid
down in just one day a minutely layered strata
deposit.

This 25-feet-thick deposit consisted of THOUSANDS of
thin strata (layers) – layer upon layer of material,
formed by flowing ‘rivers’ of volcanic ASH.

Now, just pause and think hard. Did the Grand Canyon
strata really need millions of years to form?

Would you bet your life on it?

This gets intensely interesting.

That’s why I could not keep this and other discoveries
to myself. So many folk have been asking me to share
information about these wonders. That’s why the
ebook “The Killing of Paradise Planet” was produced.

It will blow your socks off!

In any case, it’s nice talking with you again.

About Jonathan Gray

International explorer, archaeologist and author Jonathan Gray has travelled the world to gather data on ancient mysteries. Jonathan has published more than 100 books and videos, written several hundred papers, and hosted newspaper columns. He writes in a popular, conversational style, but with a keen eye for evidence to support his findings. The documentation sometimes includes certificates, private letters and facts that others refuse to publish. A controversial, highly sought after speaker, Jonathan has appeared on numerous television and radio shows worldwide, and lectures to audiences on every continent. He is a hands-on archaeologist. Over the past 47 years, he has penetrated some largely unexplored areas, including parts of the Amazon headwaters. He has also led expeditions to the bottom of the sea and to remote mountain and desert regions of the world. His findings include evidence of ancient Egyptians in the Americas, remains of ancient giants on a remote Pacific island and of Egyptian chariot parts and skeletal remains scattered over the seabed. As distinct from the general archaeologist who specialises in a particular locality or theme of interest, Jonathan Gray’s research is into global patterns. This unique approach has propelled him to the forefront of little-known discoveries that shake traditional theories of our past. Archaeology first grabbed Jonathan at the age of ten – when he read a magazine article telling how British explorer Percy Fawcett had found a dead, vine choked city in the wilds of the Amazon. The ruins were guarded by savages wielding clubs and poison darts. As it turned out, Jonathan’s first expedition was into that same unexplored region… where natives shrank human heads to the size of an orange. In the course of his explorations in more than 30 countries, Jonathan began to uncover evidence of surprising “out of place” artefacts. According to what he was taught at school, these were impossible! They simply should not exist! And these were not just isolated anomalies. There was a global pattern to them, suggesting an ancient worldwide civilization of astonishing proportions. That’s when he knew that someone had to speak up. He realised that this information was of tremendous value. WEBSITES, BOOKS, DVDs WEBSITE http://www.beforeus.com BOOKS Dead Men's Secrets:
