    If the earths crust is moving up, it doesn't under any river or lake??? Sounds logical to me. NOT

    Everybody knows a black trans woman in a wheelchair formed the great lakes in 1619. What have all you racists been taught in school?

    I dove Lake Superior at a place called Tomsonite Beach. There is a reef there of white rock with green tomsonite agate in it. The surface has been worn as smooth as a swimming pool with large egg shaped holes big enough for a person to fit in. very beautiful, very cold 34F. When you swam out off the reef the bottom was over a hundred feet down. The water was clearer than gin and felt like you were going to fall, very creepy but what a rush.

    Let me tell you how the Earth was was made by God. Those that don't believe that is the truth, won't find out the truth until it's too late.

    Wait, what? You mean that we've had repeated ice ages.... IE "climate change"? Who knew the dinosaurs had SUVs and coal power plants. I learned something today.

    I used to live in Chicago. The announcer calculated from the receding Niagra Falls earth movement that the 5 great lakes are about 12,000 years old. Well, that falls in line with the last ice age which receded 12K years ago. I was taught that the 5 great lakes are what is left from the receding ice age. By the way, the ice age cycles every 10,000 yrs and, so, we're due for the next one coming up. Bite your lips, climate-warming doomsayers.

    The bedrock under the water is also part of the crust so if the crust is rising why would it only rise under dry land. Even as deep as our oceans are they’re still part of the crust. So why would this “bounce back from the crust be selective?

    February 23, 2021

    Wait till it callapses and the fresh water goes in
