‘Fountains of the Great Deep’ Discovered? Scientists Find Huge Underground Ocean

By Garrett Haley Geophysicists say they have discovered an immense water reservoir deep below the Earth’s surface—a find which Christian scientists say could be an affirmation of a verse in the biblical Great Flood account. On Thursday, researchers with Northwestern University and the University of New Mexico announced the discovery of a vast underground ocean several miles beneath the Earth’s surface. Though the scientists cannot immediately verify their claims, they remain confident about their conclusions. “Northwestern geophysicist Steve Jacobsen and University of New Mexico seismologist Brandon Schmandt have found deep pockets of magma located about 400 miles beneath North America, a likely signature of the presence of water at these depths,” explains a press release from Northwestern University. “Geological processes on the Earth’s surface, such as earthquakes or erupting volcanoes, are an expression of what is going on inside the Earth, out of our sight,” Jacobsen said in the release. “I think we are finally seeing evidence for a whole-Earth water cycle, which may help explain the vast amount of liquid water on the surface of our habitable planet. Scientists have been looking for this missing deep water for decades.” If the scientists’ calculations are accurate, the amount of water beneath the Earth’s surface could …read more Source: Christian News Network     ...

Human remains possibly connected to missing woman found in west Miami-Dade canal

Miami-Dade police say they found human remains possibly connected to a woman who went missing more than a year ago inside a vehicle in a west Miami-Dade canal. Investigators continued to follow leads in the case of Raquel Calderin and their efforts led them Monday to the canal on Krome Avenue, one mile north of Tamiami Trail (SW Eighth Street). Detectives were able to find Calderin’s vehicle submerged in the canal. Police said once the vehicle was removed from the water, investigators discovered human remains inside. The vehicle was taken to the Medical Examiner’s Office for further investigation. Police said the Medical Examiner’s Office will provide an official identification of the human remains. Calderin was last seen Sept. 4, 2012 after leaving Gloria Floyd Elementary School, where she worked as a custodian. Cellphone records show her husband, Jesus Maquiera, was near the school at the time his wife disappeared, said police. Calderin was on the phone shortly after leaving work when the call dropped. The two lived with their children in southwest Miami-Dade County. Police said Maquiera was angry because his wife wanted a divorce, adding that their 20-year marriage was plagued by violence. Authorities claim Maquiera stalked Calderin after she left him and at one point put …read more Source: WPLG Local News     ...
