Trees And Wind

Amateur videographer Brian Nutall, took this amazing footage on October 31st, 2015 in Nova Scotia. At first glance, it may be a little hard to tell what’s going on here. Is it a natural phenomenon? Is it supernatural? Is this the groan of the earth that the Bible talks about? Is the Earth Alive? Is this the Earth actually breathing?

Unfortunately, it seems the reality of what is happening here, is far less remarkable. When you combine heavy winds, along with large trees that have expansive root systems; it can create an interesting phenomenon. When the wind blows through the trees, the roots which are covering a large area underground is literally raising the top soil. This creates the illusion you see here, which makes it look as if the earth is breathing.

I wouldn’t suggest that to mean the Earth ISN’T alive in some form.

22  For we know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right 

up unto the present time.
