Creation Devotional September 26 - Geology

Daily Devotional – September 26



One of the great mysteries in geology is the inselberg, like Ayers Rock in central Australia. The German word inselberg means a hill jutting up from a plain, like an island in a placid sea or “island mountain.” From a distance, that is exactly how an inselberg looks, like an island rising from a flat sea. They are found on all continents. Some famous inselbergs are Sugarloaf towering 1,300 feet high out of the Rio de Janeiro harbor in Brazil or Stone Mountain in Georgia standing 825 feet above the land.


Inselbergs are said to be millions of years old, but if that were true they should have eroded down to nothing, yet they are still steepsided. From a biblical perspective, the retreating waters of the Flood of Noah’s day explain inselbergs. The retreating floodwaters would have scoured soft sediment away, planing the surrounding land off flat. As the waters decreased, they become channelized in places, cutting away the land but leaving isolated remnants with steep sides, that is, the tall inselberg structures. The Genesis Flood explains this and many other “mysterious” landforms that are found worldwide.


Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.

~ Genesis 7:20
