Pictures of Cracks in Saturn’s moon and water from subterranean seas erupting into space – reminiscent of Noah’s Flood.

Did something like this happen on Earth 4500yrs ago in the time of Noah?
Is this how the Grand Canyon, the mountains and the seas formed?
In the Beginning, the Earth was formless and void, the Spirit of God hovered over the waters. (Gen 1:2)
The Earth was almost a perfect sphere when it was created but when cracks appeared in the outer layers of the Earth at the time of Noah, the fountains of the deep burst forth. Water was released from underground reservoirs completely flooding the Earth. Layers of sediment were deposited rapidly in the ensuing months and all living things were burried and became fossilized (except for those on the Ark). The loss of volume from inside the Earth cause the Earth to implode slightly creating stress in the outer mantle / crust. The cracks extended over the whole Earth and divided the outer mantle of the Earth into tectonic plates. As the water burst forth onto the Earth’s surface, the Earth shrank and it’s diameter and circumference was reduced. This caused the outer layers of the Earth to buckle creating high and low ground. Tectonic plates pushed together and overlapped forming mountain ridges. There must have been enourmous Earthquakes at the time. Water then flowed into the lower lying areas forming oceans, and cutting canyons and gorges in the soft newly formed sedimentary rock.
This is testified to by the continuous smoothly undulating nature of the Earth’s crust which continues under the oceans and joins the continents together. Only at faultlines is there a disruption in these smooth undulations as attested to by the presence of mountains and cliffs.
The Grand Canyon was not formed by a trickling Colorado river over millions of years. There was a cataclysmic event which flooded the Earth’s surface for over a year stiring up soil and depositing enourmous amounts of sediment and rapidly burrying animals and forests accounting for the fossils, oil deposits and coal seams that we have today. As water drained into lower lying areas, enormous gorges and canyons were cut into to soft newly formed sedimentary rock (which has now become hard).
There was no “Pangea” or supercontinent. The continents did not drift apart leaving great chasms in the Earth’s crust. They emerged out of the sea when the Earth’s outer layers buckled upwards and the water drained to lower lying areas which became the oceans.
Fault lines appeared in the Earth’s surface at the time of the flood. This resulted in cataclismic flooding of the entire surface of the earth, buckling of the Earth’s crust and formation of mountains and valleys. As the waters receeded and drained into valleys over the subsequent months, forming oceans, the Earths surface was completeley remodeled and land masses emerged to give us the continents that we have today.
Earthquakes continue to occur today predominantly around fault lines but no where near the magnitude of the first ones in the time of Noah.
In the 600th year of Noah, Cracks formed in the outer layers of the Earth and the fountains of the deep burst forth flooding the Earth. The fractures in the Earth’s crust remain as fault lines which divide the outer layers of the Earth into Tectonic Plates.
In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month–on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. New International Version (©1984)
When Noah was 600 years old, on the seventeenth day of the second month, all the underground waters erupted from the earth, and the rain fell in mighty torrents from the sky. New Living Translation (©2007)

Now the springs of the deep and the floodgates of the heavens had been closed, and the rain had stopped falling from the sky. New International Version (©1984)

By his knowledge the deep fountains of the earth burst forth, and the dew settles beneath the night sky.New Living Translation (©2007)
