"I never heard this before, give me a non-ICR source"

Any science text book about the Sahara (That probably isn't spelled right) should tell you this. I believe they found this by taking the growth rate and then reversing it to find the aproxamite age of the desert.

"Pressurized in what kind of rock? Does this assume the amount of oil is not increasing? Does this assume that there is a large and active source for the oil to diffuse out? Give me a non-ICR source."

I will look right away!!!

"Buried under glacial flow, perhaps? I assume you were referring to the rate at which ice accumulates from the sky (snow) however the ice sheets themselves are sliding around profusely."

Yes it is snow. The region where the planes landed is basically stable, so any ice is acumulated by snow and not glacial flow, but that is a good theory. Does any one know where we could check to make sure there is'nt any flow in the area. Of course if it is flow, it is extermly fast. Considering that glaciars move about 2 inches or is it 2 feet? Well if it is 2 inces it would be covered in 96 inches of ice or about 8 feet in ice. If it is feet then it would be 96 feet!!! I highly doubt this rate of growth for Glacial Flow. Even if it this fast it is 167 feet to slow for it any way.

I'm off to find you information.
May God Bless All
