Gen_1:28 says, “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and REPLENISH THE EARTH, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
Before creating Adam, God destroyed the civilization of the angels that left their first estate on the planet Rahab (now our Asteroid Belt) and came to Earth. At that point, mankind was to replace angels.
Jud 1:6 says, “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”
Isa 51:9, 10 says, "Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut (chatsab, split) Rahab, and wounded the dragon (i.e., Satan)? 10 Art thou not it which hath dried the sea, the waters of the great deep".
When God destroyed the angel civilization on Earth, he blasted the Moon material out of our Pacific Basin.
Gen 1:2 says, "And the earth was (lit., became) without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep."

"Göbekli Tepe (pronounced [ɟøbekˈli teˈpe], "Potbelly Hill") is an archaeological site atop a mountain ridge in the Southeastern Anatolia Region of modern-day Turkey, approximately 12 km (7 mi) northeast of the city of Şanlıurfa. The tell has a height of 15 m (49 ft) and is about 300 m (984 ft) in diameter. It is approximately 760 m (2,493 ft) above sea level.
The tell includes two phases of ritual use dating back to the 10th–8th millennium BCE. During the first phase, pre-pottery Neolithic A (PPNA), circles of massive T-shaped stone pillars were erected. More than 200 pillars in about 20 circles are currently known through geophysical surveys. Each pillar has a height of up to 6 m (20 ft) and a weight of up to 20 tons. They are fitted into sockets that were hewn out of the bedrock. In the second phase, Pre-Pottery Neolithic B (PPNB), the erected pillars are smaller and stood in rectangular rooms with floors of polished lime. The site was abandoned after the PPNB-period."
"Çatalhöyük was a very large Neolithic and Chalcolithic proto-city settlement in southern Anatolia, which existed from approximately 7500 BC to 5700 BC, and flourished around 7000 BC. It is the largest and best-preserved Neolithic site found to date."
"Job 38:8-13 says, "WHO SHUT UP THE SEA WITH DOORS, WHEN IT BRAKE FORTH, as if it had issued out of the womb? 9 WHEN I MADE THE CLOUD THE GARMENT THEREOF, AND THICK DARKNESS A SWADDLINGBAND FOR IT, 10 And brake up for it my decreed place (i.e., the Pacific Basin), and set bars and doors, 11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed? 12 Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring (shachar, dawn) to know his place; 13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked (i.e., the wicked angels) might be shaken out of it?"
Psa 104:5-9 says, "Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever. 6 THOU COVEREDST IT WITH THE DEEP AS WITH A GARMENT: THE WATERS STOOD ABOVE THE MOUNTAINS. 7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away. 8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place (i.e., the Pacific Basin) which thou hast founded for them. 9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth."
Jer_31:35 says, "Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which DIVIDETH (raga, to toss suddenly and violently, break, divide) THE SEA when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name".
Psa 104:30 says, “...thou renewest the face of the earth.”
This cataclysm was the end of the world for the angels. In Turkey, Gobekli Tepe and Karahan Tepe's huge T-shaped limestone pillars were entombed in sand and dirt by the tsunami. Bone and flint tools were scattered. Figurines were buried. Seashells were deposited on every mountain on earth. The destruction was enormous, and worldwide.
"...there are many examples of totally REVERSED 'strata layers' that no known force could have produced that way -- some are THOUSANDS of square miles (the Lewis overthrust for instance, weighs in at around 800,000 BILLION TONS".
The Lewis Overthrust is a geologic thrust fault structure of the Rocky Mountains within Glacier National Park in Montana, United States and Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada."
