    What are all those Japanese and Chinese landlords going to do when the islands wash away? Read more @ Hawaiian Islands are dissolving from within, study says And don't forget the volcano about to blow its top on the Chile/Argentina border.

    Well, since we are talking in terms of geological time, there will not be Japanese or Chinese landlords by the time this process has started reducing Oahu. Won't even be Homo Sap. Maybe a daughter species or two, but we will be gone.

    This has been known for decades. It's all resulting from plate tectonics. Islands are born, grow, then erode. Further along the fault new ones are born. The old ones can be seen under the water. Undeniable evidence of a planet billions of years old still evolving.

    Ah,

    see,

    right there is where you are incorrect,

    ...at least in my experience.

    I've yet to run into any issue of significance

    that is "undeniable."

    Because God created eroded islands under the water to "trick" us. The earth is only thousands of years old.
