The Mountains of Another Time

The antediluvian terrain was much less austere than that of today. The fossil evidence of Mt Everest, and many other sites, attests to the understanding that when the waters prevailed above the mountains, they weren't prevailing as greatly as one might think. It is based upon speculation, but here is a theory that answers most of the available evidence:
The earth was nearly 90 deg from the ecliptic - no seasons so to speak, and the hydrosphere (waters above the firmament) created the 'greenhouse effect' increasing lifespan, promoting healthy giantism, etc... The length of the year was 360 days.
What is also understood is that the original earth's crust consisted of three primary layers: After the 'mantle' there was the Basalto-Sphere, the remnants of this is found today as the ocean floor - this rock is primarily iron or mafic in composition and acts as the essential 'foundation' of the earth.
Directly above this basalto-sphere was the 'hydroplate' known as the waters of the deep. This layer was capped by the Granitic crust - primarily silicic in composition, and remains today as continental crust.
An object from space, an asteroid or a comet, impacted the earth creating the season giving 23 something deg angle of the axis to the ecliptic, and initiating a wobble in the axial track. This impact also destabilized the earth. The impact created a crack in the previously pristine granitic crust.
The waters of the deep, being under several miles of solid, contiguous granite, was under extreme pressure and took advantage of the cracks - breaking open the fountains. This water shot into the upper atmosphere (very extreme pressure) and essentially precipitated the hydrosphere - water at many degrees below zero - and created a so called 'instant ice age' as it rained back down. As the water shot from the cracks, also known as the mid oceanic ridges, the granitic crust in contact with the geysers was eroded heavily and created what would become nearly all sedimentary stone. The pieces of the left over granitic crust, being lubricated somewhat upon the hydroplate, slid and collided creating metamorphic stone, and mountain ranges.
This process also compacted the crustal structures of the earth and, as the spinning ice dancer, caused the earth to spin faster and drift from her previously unperturbed orbit.
Voila: 365.something day year, insane mountain ranges with clams at the top, and an irradiated earth surface incapable of supporting the life that had once flourished.
The waters aswaged - ran away - because the mountains rose beneath them. Indeed, if the hydroplate and the hydrosphere had not created a blanket of water upon which to ride, no flesh would have survived this breaking - we're talking about earthquakes in the 20 or so range on that old scale.
In any case, the water was probably not any thicker than a few miles or so, someone has calculated its real depth by a flattening of the earth's topography and accounting for the necessary runover of the currently observed water - though I don't know who or when.
Take it or leave it, but the entire world screams out that the wages of sin is death - in a mind boggling and insanely terrifying measure. Just imagine watching a wall of water shoot from the ground at 2000 mph or so, and ripping the sky in two before raining boulders large as a mountain accompanied by -150 degree ice.
Hell came to earth back then, all of our topography shows what scars it left.
How mighty is The LORD!
