On the “Glacial Landscape”
This term is mistakenly used to denote a strongly crossed non-mountainous terrain, rich in overgrown forests on ridges and low troughs between them, often parallel to each other. Such a landscape is characteristic, including, for the north of the Karelian Isthmus and some regions of Karelia.
Once upon a time someone from the low-witted homos erectus from science decided that it was probably during the “glacial period” that the glaciers crept along the land, tracing it. Since then, other homos erectus began to repeat this stupidity thoughtlessly. The term “glacial landscape” entered textbooks, became “universally recognized”…
… Yes, glaciers are really capable of moving, as if slowly pouring.
But they “pour” from the mountains, but not across the plain!
… What is the mechanism of the movement of glaciers?
In the lower part of the layers of ice, hundreds of meters or kilometers high, there is a tremendous pressure at which ice acquires fluidity similar to dense resin. The entire colossal thickness of the glacier very slowly moves on this “resinous” layer. At the same time, the approaching glacier does not at all resemble a bulldozer’s shovel, and it does not break through deep trenches. And, most importantly, I repeat, glaciers do not “creep” across the plains, but move only along the slopes of the mountains. And there are no mountains at that area or near it!
… But what, yet, has created such characteristic landscape features?
… Now this area is covered with forests. But sometime, very long ago, there were only sands, moved by the winds… They formed dunes: sandy hills and ridges flowing under the influence of winds. Then those dunes were gradually fixed with vegetation: they were overgrown with grass, shrubs, then — with trees. As a result, it turned out what we are seeing now.
Another similar variant of the formation of such a landscape is a marine or oceanic bottom. This bottom is not at all smooth! Even on the bottom sand of a shallow lake, we can observe the ripples, which, however, can change their configuration when the direction of the wind over the lake changes — which accordingly changes the fluctuations of the water column.
But the most significant transformations of the seabed occur in storms. Even the above-water sandbanks with a length of kilometers and tens of kilometers are formed. One example is the Arabat arrow on the Sea of Azov. Sometimes — after the storms — the parallel to it its smaller duplicates are formed and now. Then they can either disappear under the influence of subsequent storms, or, conversely, strengthen.
On a scale of geological epochs — the seabed areas could become land… And they grew by vegetative…
… Yes… Human stupidity creates problems not only in religion, but also in completely materialistic knowledge.
