Even today, God’s creation produces surprises that awe and perplex scientists. In February, researchers discovered an other-worldly seascape 6,000 feet below the ocean’s surface in the Gulf of California. They explored the area in 2008 and found nothing unusual, but the return expedition found an underwater wonderland of thermal vents, crystallized gas bubbles, mirrorlike silver pools of hot fluids, and 75-foot-high mineral towers carpeted with mats of microbes in hues of pink, orange, white, yellow, and purple.
