Creation below the surface –

What guidance does the Bible give you in your calling or even in your daily life?

As a researcher, I consider it a blessing to learn about our created world. Geology provides knowledge about the workings of the Earth, a finely tuned system that cannot be explained by chance. Our planet's temperature, the presence and occurrence of water, carbon dioxide, and rock parameters all make the planet habitable. If these had not come together in this way, neither man, nor the animal world, nor plants would be like this. The movement of the Earth's plates and water is a requirement for life. In the first book of Moses, we can read about creation: “And the earth was barren and desolate, and darkness was upon the deep, and the Spirit of God hovered over the waters.” (Genesis 1, 2) I myself have long researched how water affects the properties and movement of our planet's lithospheric plates. Water appears as a symbol several times in the Bible, but in several places it separates the waters above from the waters below the surface, all of which are essential to our existence, so we can speak here now. However, the question arises as to why God allows evil and natural disasters in a perfectly created earthly environment. I think that, paradoxically, they all serve to build humanity. I can define it as a test, so that we learn and become stronger from our bad experiences. Natural disasters are similar, and show the limits of our humanity. “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another.” (Matthew 24:7). Man was cast out of Heaven after original sin, and the Creator made it clear that there would be consequences. I think earthquakes are just such phenomena: they teach us humility.
