How amazing it is that the clouds are filled with trillions of tons of water. Most people have no idea that the average puffy raincloud weighs something like 350 thousand tons, and yet it floats like a feather and waters the earth so that food can grow and feed man and beast. Scripture tells us that it was God who divided the waters in the heavens from the waters on the earth.
The heat from the sun causes the oceans to rise into the heavens, leaving their salty taste and in time, the evaporated oceans fall back down onto the earth to give life to its inhabitants. Without this process, we wouldn’t have a green life-giving earth. It would mostly be dry and fruitless desert, but for the irrigation waters that man is able to bring from lakes in different parts of the earth.
The perfectly balanced division of the oceans from the mass of water in the clouds didn’t come about by causeless accident, as evolution believers and atheists believe. The "Big Bang" folks are shallow in their understanding of the water cycle and its origin. Big bangs produce chaos not order.
9And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called the Seas: and God saw that it was good.
Only in recent years has science discovered that there are mountains and valleys under the seas. It was assumed by experts that the sea bottom was just flat land. But it’s not. It's massive mountains and deep valleys, because God caused the dry land to "appear." These appeared as the seas receded, because God was the Cause.
The theory goes that we temporarily left other sea-dwelling creatures and crawled onto dry land to evolve (over time) lungs and a heart that could accept oxygenated blood, while under the water. Then, with primitive legs that had also evolved, as a "population" we ventured onto the dry land and over millions of years, decided to stay permanently.
Evolution's followers don’t know why we made the decision to leave. We just did, and so here we are on the dry land that came about by chance, with no rhyme, no reason, and no purpose. It's not "good" as the Bible says. It just is. Evolution-did-it.
