Oh, Utahrose, I was going to post the Florida watertable story. You beat me. You obviously understand the bigger picture. I have done a fair amount of study when it comes to geology. It seems like they're missing a big part of the equation when they fail to understand the importance of water. Well, not exactly. I've read their studies on water events as well, and there's tons. Giant glacial dambursts are some of my favorite examples. But the focus still seems to be on the rocks. If you study what happens underneath glaciers, you'll find channels of super-cooled waters that cut through ice and rock. Water can act like a cutting torch. Geologists seem to focus on the faults and the layers of rock. But these are really stagnant. What drives the whole process is the liquids. The magma within trying to makes it way out. And the water on the surface always trying to find the lowest and deepest place to travel. It's fluid dynamics. When you look at it that way, the rock becomes the least fascinating and the slowest dynamic of it all. I think they're looking through the telescope from the wrong direction.
