And so it is. At least from a google translation of this source webpage, which includes a video of a scientist documenting the event:

www.lifenews.ru...


Amazing natural phenomenon has been documented in recent days. Huge beds of clay and stone rose by about 5 meters above the Sea of ​​Azov in the Temryuk district of Krasnodar region, forming a peninsula.

The huge strip of land length 800 and width 50 meters literally grew up on the very spot where, just a week ago, lapped the Sea of ​​Azov.

Discovery made by local residents who immediately called the SSC FGUGP "Yuzhmorgeologiya" and told the geologists of the new land.

- We actually recorded the emergence of a new generation - told Life News Specialist "Yuzhmorgeologiya" Paul Alekseenko. - It's safe to say that for several days, the bottom has risen to 5 meters above sea level. "Land" consists of a solid mixture of clay, rocks, tectonic formations, all marine debris. Nothing like this in Taman never happened!

While scientists have speculated on and build a different hypothesis.

Seismologists believe that under the influence of yet unknown force tectonic plates began to converge and squeeze out a layer of clay. Pressure, which could set in motion a volume of soil, according to conservative estimates, was equal to 24 million tons.


So we watched as parts of Japan moved many meters during the recent 9+ quake. New volcanoes rising from the sea have been observed. And now Russia gets to claim 10 new Acres (approximately 4 Hectares) of land "created" in just a few days?

Ok, so I guess God must have decided Russia was overpopulated and needed some more beachfront rock and a new peninsula?

Or was the earth mostly built in episodes of tectonic land creation just like this over 4.5 Billion years?

I don't know. But I know what we physically witness. And the implications of that.

More info on the Sea of Azov here:
en.wikipedia.org...


The sea is 360 kilometres (220 mi) long and 180 kilometres (110 mi) wide and has an area of 39,000 square kilometres (15,000 sq mi); it is the smallest sea within the countries of the former Soviet Union.[8] The main rivers flowing into it are the Don and Kuban; they ensure that the waters of the sea have comparatively low salinity and are almost fresh in places, and also bring in huge volumes of silt and sand. Accumulation of sand and shells results in a smooth and low coastline, as well as in numerous spits and sandbanks.[9]

The Sea of Azov is the shallowest sea in the world with an average depth of 7 metres (23 ft) and maximum depth of 14 metres (46 ft);[1] in the bays, where silt has built up, the average depth is about 1 metre (3 ft). The sea bottom is also relatively flat with the depth gradually increasing from the coast to the centre.[10] The Sea of Azov is an internal sea with the passage to the Atlantic Ocean going through the Black, Marmara, Aegean and Mediterranean seas. It is connected to the Black Sea with the Strait of Kerch, which has a smallest width of 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) and a maximum depth of 15 metres (49 ft).[1] The narrowness of the Kerch Strait limits the water exchange with the Black Sea. As a result, the salinity of the Sea of Azov is low; in the open sea it is 10–12 psu, that is about one third of the salinity the oceans, and is even lower (2–7 psu) in the Taganrog Bay. The long-term variations of salinity are within a few psu and are mostly caused by the changes in air humidity and precipitation.[11][12]

Whereas more than 20 rivers flow into the sea, mostly from the north,[10] two of them, the Don and Kuban rivers, account for more than 90% of water income. The contribution of the Don is about twice as big as that of the Kuban.[10] The delta of Kuban is located southeast, to the right from the Kerch Strait. It is over 100 km long and covers vast flooded area with numerous channels. (Because of the spread, the delta has low contrast in satellite images and is hardly visible in the map.) Don flows from the north into the large Taganrog Bay. The depth there varies between 2 and 9 metres, and the maximum depth is observed in the middle of the sea.[13]


Interesting that this sea is the shallowest known in the world. A good place for some new political disputes over whose new land it is, right? Please, God, could you not raise a new island in the mid Atlantic? We already went to war with Britain once. Thanks.

New Volcano? Land just doesn't rise like a elevator. If this is true, that area is in for a &#!t storm. But that's just my gut feeling. It's done me well thus far.

Properly intersting....

I dont agree with the second post though, i'd be more willing to say the earth is evening herself out a bit...

land drops in japan, why not raise in Russia?

Well it seems (as in article translation) that at least some liquefaction would occur in an upheaval like this, wouldn't it? A mud volcano?

I dunno. Far be it from me to question creationism. I wanna believe. It's just events like this make it hard. Darn those scientists!

Your just jealous cos God didn't give it to you...

My thought exactly. I read this and thought, "This can't be good." If I lived anywhere around there, I'd keep a bug out bag handy, and keep the tank full!

I hope it's just new land though, it happens.

Umm, actually no, not by a long shot. I prefer to stay as far away from God's "active tectonic creation zones" as possible.

when 2 plates slide into one another,

doesnt at least one side of the crust elevate?

i wondered if japan sinking was the sea floor rising.

as well as the land sinking around new russian land appearing to rise.

somewhere in the middle?

I wonder if there is a Geologist or similar professional out there who may give a little context in the same way some professionals do in the Space topics from time to time? This sounds rather severe and negative...but then I've never bothered to learn how often little pieces of land shift or even become visible. Is this more common than we might think, but the media hasn't had reason to make hay of it or is this really a rare event we need to sit up and take some notice of in combination with everything else? Anyone?

Well , that’s cool and all and makes sense. Equilibrium.

Unfortunately, we live on this rock. It could be a bad thing for those who live near it...or maybe, even afar.

Something about this story actually
brings back some vague memory of the expanding earth theory...

I'm not too versed in the Expanding Earth Theory...

But to me this is perhaps a clue to give it a lil more reason of being true...

Thanks for posting this TA

I added a wiki link in the OP to an article about the Sea of Azov, to give some context of this event. At the very least we should keep an eye on this. Who knows, it could be a precursor to something bigger. When new land is created, the human race must take notice.

Is this normal soil behaviour?
We call this 'heave' in construction, which is the upward movement of soil. Clay also increases in volume or expands, if you will, with changes in moisture. Thus it is not very uncommon to see seasonal movement of clay and the resultant havoc it plays with a house's foundations. However, the OP states that the clay rose out of the sea, so I doubt excess moisture was the cause. So then it must be tectronic movement, but then again, where's the accompanyg quakes? Tectronic plates dont float on clay, they float on other tectronic plates... My last guess would then be some sort of gravitational pull thats caused by someting like the moon does with the sea. Only this time its pulling the actual earth...

Grrrrr, ok I'll bite. Your hypothesis does not negate the creation story trueamerican. God created the heavens and the EARTH. He set it all in motion and let it "do it's thing". You do realize that science tells us that all the continents were once connected and through it's process (whatever you want to call it) they separated? He didn't just reach down from the heavens and rip them apart. And yes, science and creationism and God all work together. But MOST people just don't want to or refuse to admit it because they are either for or against creationism/evolution. So your story is an example of God letting His handiwork, well work lol. So logically creationism is just as if not more plausible than evolution IMHO.

Here's the way I look at it. It's all one great big jigsaw puzzle and every now and then we get little puzzle pieces that help fill in the holes, whether it be through science, archaelogy, and ancient text. And we start piecing this puzzle together and one portion of it starts to take shape and we can draw educated conclusions from it. Yet there are still other pieces of the puzzle still missing. One day, many many moons from now, all the pieces will come together and will reveal the "BIG" picture. Until then, we just have to make do with what we have. God Bless.

Well seeing is believing. I wasn't around to witness the creation of the Bible which was created by man. But I WAS around to view and therefore witness the news of this geological wonder (assuming this is true, and not just some land mapping mistake or something). The land shifted in Japan in mere minutes over wide areas recently during the quake.

I think it is important to take all of it in. And not discount one theory necessarily because you have already made up your mind on another. Especially when you WITNESS new evidence that may seriously test one's resolve.

I don't doubt that this "geological wonder" happened or that Japan shifted or there's a new volcano bursting through some sea somewhere, etc. It's all absolutely amazing to me. And it's incredibly awesome that we get to witness these events. I was simply responding to your sarcastic-like attitude towards creation and God. And my point was and still is that creationism, science, and "geological wonders" can and imho do coexist working together and does not in any way make God out to be a farce. I am pretty open-minded and when I see a "crack" somewhere in God's word, it usually means that science,archaeology,some logical thinking, etc is still missing. It all fits, sometimes we just need to turn the puzzle piece around and look at it from a different angle
Kinda like we are all doing over there in the EQ threads to try to figure out what is going on

The lack of earthquakes to go along with this event has me perplexed.

How can that much land move like that without all hell breaking loose?
