Gravity and Isaiah 40:4

In preparation for teaching Genesis, I read Neil deGrasse Tyson’s book, “Astrophysics for People in a Hurry.” It might also be called, Astrophysics for Dummies, a category into which I fall. He has an interesting connection about gravity and Isaiah 40:4.
Mount Everest is about as tall as a mountain on Earth can grow before the lower rock layers succumb to their own plasticity under the mountains weight.
Where gravity is high, the high places tend to fall, filling in the low places. Which sounds almost biblical in preparing the way for the Lord. Isaiah 40:4 “Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain.”
