    Further ,

    Sea salted soil or silt would not be condusive for any plant growth . Plants can not grow in salted earth .

    Salt on Everest would have nothing to do with that.
    There isn't any silt anywhere near the top of that mountain.
    That would have nothing to do with Mt Everest geology. It's nowhere near the poles, and it's far to high to be reached by glacial melting.

    And "the lithosphere on the mantle of the Earth's outer core" doesn't seem to make sense.

    Salt beds from ancient oceans and salt lakes are common on the planet, as are alkaline soils and aquifers, especially in drier regions. There are probably some on the Tibetan Plateau and similar regions of the Himalayas. What are you looking for?

    No such thing as the Noah flood? Then where do the Oceans come from? It rained for forty-days-and-nights and flooded the Earth. ☺

    From Frogger Post 243
    You need to go back to school. That is one of many myths recorded in the Bible as historical fact.

    Rainfall comes from evaporation of water on Earth: Oceans mainly; Also from seas, lakes, rivers, etcetera.

    Do you think there is a constant supply of water from space?

    The Noah Flood myth is probably due to exaggeration of an event indicated by remains of some villages circa 200 feet below the level of the Black Sea.

    It is known that the Black Sea evaporates more water than that supplied by rainfall & rivers. If the straits between it & the Mediterranean close, its level will drop.

    I think (not sure) that the Mediterranean similarly needs water from the Atlantic through the Gibraltar straights to avoid a drop in sea level due to evaporation.

    There was a speculative plan at one time to dam the Strait of Gibralter and lower the Med by evaporation. I don't know what that was supposed to accomplish.
