Biblical style flood made Britain

"Biblical style flood" made Britain, according to UK Daily Telegraph, 25 Sep 2006. Britain and continental Europe are believed to have been once connected by a series of chalky hills, but Britain became an island when these were eroded away. A sonar survey of the English Channel carried out by a team led by Sanjeev Gupta, from Imperial College, London, has revealed a huge valley containing "deep bowls, scour marks and piles of rubble on the sea bed that may have been caused by a torrent of water." Gupta suggests "the valley that now exists between Britain and Europe was created by a catastrophic flood following the breaching of the Dover Strait and the sudden release of water from a giant lake to the north." This could have made Britain into an island within 24 hours.

Editorial Comment: This research adds to the abundant evidence all over the earth of catastrophic processes, and it reminds us that massive geological changes do not need big time – they need big processes. The movement of large masses of water can account for many landforms we now see on earth, and it is interesting how deeply embedded the idea is that a catastrophic flood is a "Biblical style flood", an obvious reference to Noah's Flood described in Genesis as having destroyed the whole world in judgement of mankind's sin against God the Creator.
