It is believed the landscape on Mars was formed by large-scale flooding that took place over much of the planet. The more popular theories suggest much of the flooding was caused by volcanoes, trapped ice, or a meteor strike or some combination of all those things.
Taking a look at Mars now, there are features that appear as flood plains, and canyons which are often believed to have formed through these cataclysmic floods. It’s hard to imagine now since the planet looks more like the desert planet Tatooine in the movie Star Wars. Nevertheless, there has been a great deal of research into where the water came from, and where it went. These questions are difficult to answer, and theories abound, but we keep studying because as you can see, Mars shows plenty of evidence of massive flooding.
This is earth. We call ourselves the water planet and we have many of the same features that Mars has, including massive flood plains and canyons, which many scientists also believe were caused by cataclysmic flooding. The Bible talks about a massive flood in fact. It’s not hard to imagine now, since the planet is still covered by water to a large extent and looks nothing like Tatooine or Mars. It is believed Noah’s flood involved volcanoes, trapped water, a meteor or a combination of all three. Nevertheless, research into Noah’s Flood is generally discouraged because of questions about where the water came from and where it went. The questions can be somewhat difficult to answer, and theories do abound but as you can see, Earth (the water planet) shows no evidence of massive flooding… *sarcasm*
