35 years ago on May 18, 1980, Mount St. Helen’s in Washington State erupted repeatedly, sending turbulent slurries of fiery hot ash moving at hurricane speeds to the north. As the gas escaped, the particles fell and sorted into courser and finer particles. Such eruptions, called pyroclastic flows are extremely dangerous.
The middles section in the photo shows the layering that resulted. In just three hours, 25 feet of organized material was laid down over the May 18th deposit (at least 200 layers). These layers resemble the Tapeats Sandstone layers at the Grand Canyon (above right) which, by scientific evolutionary estimates, took millions of years to form. The monumentally epic eruption of Mount St. Helen’s in 1980 has been said to seriously challenge that time frame.
So why couldn’t an all-powerful God be able to do this, and defy our attempts to categorize Him in a box. Is there anything that would be to hard for Him?
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD. ~Isaiah 55:8
