National Geographic reports something strange is happening off the coast of Portugal, and scientists now have a groundbreaking explanation saying the bottom of the tectonic plate seems to be peeling away from its top.
In 1969, a giant earthquake off the coast of Portugal kicked up a tsunami that killed over a dozen people. Some 200 years prior, an even larger earthquake hit the same area, killing around 100,000 people and destroying the city of Lisbon.
Two earthquakes in the same spot over a couple hundred years is not cause for alarm. But what puzzled seismologists about these tremors was that they began in relatively flat beds of the ocean.
And away from any faults or cracks in the Earth’s crust where tectonic plates slip past each other, releasing energy and causing earthquakes.
Now a group of scientists reported in April at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly held in Vienna that the tectonic plate could be peeling into two layers — the top peeling off the bottom layer — a phenomenon that has never been observed before.
This peeling may be creating a new subduction zone, or an area in which one tectonic plate is rammed beneath another, according to their abstract.
And the peeling is likely driven by a water-absorbing layer in the middle of the tectonic plate, according to National Geographic.
This layer might have undergone a geological process called serpentinization, in which water that seeps in through cracks causes a layer to transform into soft green minerals.
Now, this transformed layer might be causing enough weakness in the plate for the bottom layer to peel away from the top layer. That peeling could lead to deep fractures, National Geographic reported.
The unimaginable is beginning to happen within the earth but the Biblical prophecies foretold that there would be unusual groans and strains (Romans 8) within the planet earth’s crust in the Last Days.
Which will ultimately result in the fulfillment of the Revelation prophecies (Revelation 6) with amazing shaking and movement of the earth’s crust which will actually change the geographical location of earth’s landmarks.
The Signs of the Last Days prophecies are indicating that we are nearing the end of this age and the appearance of Jesus Christ.
