But I say again, the enormity and spaciousness of these mountains were created in less than a day.
Earth's surface is a thin cooled solid, while Earth's voluminous mantle is liquid molten magma
The mass of exceptional energy to raise mountain chains did not initiate from the mantle, or from any ocean basin; but from the cosmos. Before this stupendous mass of energy, Earth did not have the mountains of China, or the Cascades, or the Rockies, or any of its major mountain belts and chains.
If we could measure the magnitude of force, which raised the mountains of China on a Richter scale, it would probably be one trillion. That sir, is not exactly an earthquake; we might want to call it an earth-shock.
Earth expanded in magnitude suddenly and very swiftly. Earth increased in volume approximately 1˝ times its primal size. The swell of Earth's additional content, fractured the hardened shell surface to massive plates drifting to their own acquiescence; atop of a heavily disturbed mantle.
Ophiolite, we know the mantle is dense molten rock.
There is plenty of evidence about the mantle.
Yet, there is no evidence anywhere, which can prove...Earth's mountain chains are billions of years old.
For even if, they were 'billions' of years old; the theory of subduction beneath the continents uplifting the mountain chains, has suddenly become more speculative.
