Giant's Causeway , Northern Ireland -------Northern Ireland's most popular tourist destination: this large stretch of staircase-shaped rocks is the result of cooled lava from volcanic eruptions that took place over 65 million years ago.
*places I have seen* This was one of the most amazing things I've seen- each rock is shaped in a perfect octagon and the rocks protrude from the ground in different levels. It was such a testimony to how amazing God is. Seriously, how can you look at that and say the world came about by chance?
The Giant's Causeway lies at the foot of the basalt cliffs along the sea coast on the edge of the Antrim plateau in Northern Ireland. It is made up of some 40,000 massive black basalt columns sticking out of the sea. The dramatic sight has inspired legends of giants striding over the sea to Scotland. Geological studies of these formations over the last 300 years have greatly contributed to the development of the earth sciences, and show that this striking landscape was caused by volcanic activity during the Tertiary, some 50–60 million years ago.
