The landscapes of Central Australia provide amazing insights into the way the waters of Noah’s Flood drained from the continent. The image from Google Earth shows the area immediately south of the mission station of Hermannsburg. The course of the Finke River stands out as it snakes its way south. The pale-coloured river bed contrasts with the red, iron-stained colour of the rest of the image because it is is filled with white, quartz-sand.
The large, ‘wrinkly’ area south of Hermannsburg is the Krichauff Range, and surprisingly, the Finke River flows right through that range. The flat area to the south-west of the image is Palm Valley, which is popular with tourists.
The most remarkable feature here is that the river flows directly through the mountain range, rather than around it as would be expected. This phenomenon provides graphic evidence for the reality of Noah’s Flood, which elegantly explains how it happened. Mainstream geologists, although many of them went to Sunday school and church as kids, do not take the account of Noah’s Flood seriously in their professional work. Consequently they have to come up with fanciful scenarios to explain the impossible: how a mostly-dry, intermittent, river like the Finke could carve its way through high mountain ranges.
