If water exists in huge volumes beneath Earth's crust, it is bound to have a big impact on the mechanics of volcanoes and the movement of tectonic plates. 'One of the reasons the Earth is such a dynamic planet is the presence of some water in its interior. Water changes everything about the way a planet works,' said Pearson.
Pearson obviously believes it exists in both hydrous material and liquid form down there, if not why is he talking about huge volumes effecting tectonic plate movement, obviously he would not say that if he purely believed it to be composed of a solid hydrous layer.
"Really it's the essence of how plate tectonics works, because water weakens rocks," Pearson said. "And also, water lowers the melting point of rock, so water dictates where many of the Earth's volcanoes are found.
The diamond formed in the "transition zone" around 410 to 660 kilometres below our planet's surface. Analysis of a mineral grain trapped inside it suggests that it came from surroundings that were about one per cent water, report researchers led by University of Alberta geochemist Graham Pearson.
"Before the flood, there was no moon". Does it not seem rather odd to anyone that the moon has massive amounts of water in it? Rumors of a hollow moon? Tiamat, the water planet, now the asteroid belt, minus its waters?

Wild idea here: could our moon LUNA
actually be the former water planet Tiamat?
In the Enûma Elish her physical description includes a tail, a thigh, "lower parts" (which shake together), a belly, an udder, ribs, a neck, a head, a skull, eyes, nostrils, a mouth, and lips. She has insides (possibly "entrails"), a heart, arteries, and blood.
