What is the Meaning of the Floods on Mars part 3


Uniformitarian theories of Martian history present many problems.
A Biblical alternative is proposed that includes the Day-4 cratering hypothesis and Mars’ crustal magnetism. Greatly reduced magnetism in the centers of the four largest impact craters suggests that most large Mars impacts occurred during the Genesis Flood. These impacts, and subsequent volcanism generated by them, produced a climate with sufficient liquid water for the Martian floods. A young age for Mars is supported by several geological observations. Rapid flooding can explain the valley networks and the outflow channels and provide a tighter volume estimate of around a 100 m Global Equivalent Layer (GEL). The flood water was absorbed into the subsurface and into hydrated minerals.
That temporary atmosphere disappeared as water vapor precipitated out and the atmosphere cooled. Precipitation also absorbed CO2 and SO2 which helps account for their atmospheric disappearance.
