As the crust of the earth slowly hardened millions and billions of years ago the geologists tell us that the crust wrinkled and crumbled - great preserves changed the rocks from one form to another? and great mountains rolled up high and the moisture in the air found great clouds which covered the earth - and when the moisture breached the rocks which were still too hot - the steam rose again - ? etc."
