New research by scientists has revealed that the south coast of England, which it is believed was once linked to mainland Europe by a land bridge, was swept away by a Biblical style flood within a 24 hour period. Evolutionists previously believed that the English Channel was formed by hundred of millions of years of slow erosion and sea level rises, but new evidence points to a catastrophic flood that swept away a chalk land bridge within a very short space of time. At one time ice sheets covered much of the British isles. Scientist postulate that these glaciers dammed the North Sea, creating a massive lake. This lake apparently overflowed, and the torrent of water carved out the soft limestone rock that joined England to France.
Quote: ""In places this huge, underwater valley is more than seven miles (11km) wide and 170ft deep, with vertical sides. Its nearest geological parallels are found not on earth but in the monumental flood terrains of the planet Mars," Dr Gupta said in an abstract published at an academic conference. "This suggests the valley was created by catastrophic flood-flows following the breaching of the Dover Strait and the sudden release of water from a giant lake to the north."
A more likely scenario, I believe, is that the English Channel was created during the time of the flood, after 40 days and nights of continuous rain and the fountains of the great deep breaking up. Only then would you have enough water to cause one of the "most powerful flood events ever known on earth" - according to the head of human origins at the Natural History Museum in London, Chris Stringer. But as the Scriptures say, this they are willingly ignorant of, that God once destroyed the world with a flood. The reason of course for this ignorance is that men do not want to believe that God will once again judge the world for sin.
