Revealing spectacular evidence for Noah’s global Flood
Chapman’s Peak Drive is a glorious and breath-taking drive that winds its way in a hundred curves around the mountainous coastline south of Cape Town, South Africa. The locals affectionately call it ‘The Chappies’. Perched almost in space, its bends and twists manoeuvre along a sheer drop into the ocean, hugging the escarpment of Cape Peninsula.
What is even more spectacular, especially for a geologist, Chapman’s Peak Drive runs along the junction between two starkly different geological features. In the cut as you drive along the road you can see flat-lying maroon, purple, and tan beds stacked like pancakes one upon the other. The beds continue up the escarpment peeking out from beneath the vegetation. These strata are part of a vast sedimentary blanket1 called the Cape Supergroup. Although this blanket has been folded and eroded, it still covers much of the southern portion of South Africa.2
Underneath the road and plunging into the sea is a steep outcrop of granite. These smooth, grey, rounded rocks were once part of an enormous body of molten ‘lava’ deep within the crust of the earth. That body is now called the Cape Peninsula Pluton,3 and is itself part of a larger group of granite outcrops called the Cape Granite Suite.
According to the Bible, the world experienced a global, catastrophic Flood about 4,500 years ago, and we can explain this landscape from that perspective. Mainstream geologists do not believe the global Flood ever occurred, so they use a different lens through which to interpret the past. All the same, the careful observations they have made and the detailed reports they have written of those observations (e.g. in the references below) help us understand the rocks and interpret them from a biblical perspective. (I.e., minus the speculation in their reports about what happened before the geologists were born.)…
