A new survey indicates that Mt. Everest has grown in height by 90 cm (35.43 inches) in nine years. The Himalayas were probably formed either during the massive global upheaval of the Flood or afterwards when the rock formations were still pliable and the water was violently resettling into “the deep” and the ocean basins. Today the Himalayas are heavily populated in many places at altitudes below 15,000 feet. About 30 million people live in Nepal, for example, and many more millions in Tibet, Pakistan, Bhutan, and the northern states of India. Bible prophecy indicates that the mountains will be leveled during a mighty earthquake that will shake the earth during the Great Tribulation (Revelation 16:18-20; Jeremiah 4:23-25).
