Earth System Port, The Nodule Surface Mark

The Nodule Evidence

We find colorful chert (silica) nodules surrounded by lighter limestone worldwide in limestone deposits; these are another anomaly in modern geology. These nodules vary and in size and obviously grew in a seawater environment because limestone, a rock of organic origin, has a marine origin. Geologists avoid describing just how this happened because the seawater would have been saturated with silica, and they do not think that is possible, declaring, “seawater is seldom saturated with silica.” The UM explains how and when hot, siliceous waters covered the Earth, showing why these nodules formed just like fossils did, Earth-wide, on or near the surface. To learn more about these nodule formations read Chapter 8 of the Universal Model.
