QUICKLY – The Watchtower 7/15/1968 p. 421 Was There an Earthwide Flood?
What tremendous changes occurred in earth’s surface with the fall of this vast canopy of water! This immense weight of water apparently caused a shifting and buckling of earth’s relatively thin crust. Thus, new mountains were thrust upward, old mountains rose to new heights, shallow sea basins were deepened and new shorelines were established.
SLOWLY – Awake! 3/8/1983 p. 14 Creationism—Is It Scientific?
Their teaching that the earth and even the universe are less than 10,000 years old contradicts all the findings of modern science. They are so far out of step that they invite ridicule from scientists. Geologists can point to their measurements of geologic processes that extend far beyond that narrow time frame. Ocean sediments have accumulated over far more than 10,000 years. The time to build mountains and wear them down is measured in millions of years. For continents to drift apart and form oceans takes hundreds of millions of years. To say that all of this goes back only 10,000 years is simply absurd in the eyes of geologists.
QUICKLY – Gods Word (1989) p. 111-113 pars. 29-32 ‘Science: Has It Proved the Bible Wrong?’
For the Flood to have happened, the pre-Flood sea basins would have to have been shallower, and the mountains lower than they are now… Since the mountains and sea basins rise and fall, it is apparent that at one time the mountains were not as high as they are now and the great sea basins were not as deep.
What happened to the floodwaters after the Flood? Movement of these plates can cause changes in the level of the earth’s surface… It is quite likely that—perhaps triggered by the Flood itself—the plates moved, the sea bottom sank, and the great trenches opened, allowing the water to drain off the land.
