Moving mountains mythology evidence?

moving mountains evidence mythology folklore mythsMythology including religious stories appear to have myths about chunks of land, hills, islands or mountains being picked up and moved, hurled, transported by the Gods, Devils or a natural event.

To the sensible man this is ludicrous but is there evidence that pieces of the Earth may have been lifted up and changed its location?

Comet 67P would seem to be a strange place to perhaps find evidence to back up this type of folklore but the visual evidence is interesting.

Moving mountains mythology

The hero could move mountains that hindered the route of his cattle herd. He could and did toss boulders about like pebbles. He even relieved the Titan Atlas of the burden of holding up the heavens.

Filled with admiration for Yugong, the Emperor of Heavens ordered two mighty gods to carry the mountains away.
How The Foolish Old Man Moved Mountains

Filfla is the unhappy victim of the nasty (and absurd) legend of Il-Maqluba: the evil inhabitants of Il-Maqluba so displeased God that he tore the ground from beneath them and sent them crashing through to hell. So base were they that not even hell could hold them, and in desperation the devil threw the depraved sinners (as the earth, trees, etc.) out of hell and back into the night sky. The tangles mass of rock, vegetation and godless souls landed in the sea and thus created Filfla.

Comet 67p moving mountains

The Rosetta Mission to comet 67P/C-G has found this rather strange geology feature. A crater or pit with the material from it seemingly located beside it.

How this could happen is a mystery, especially on a comet or active asteroid.

On the left (position A) there is a 150 m diameter pit. To the right (position B) is a similar sized block sitting on the surface.

a block of material to the right has a similar shape and appearance to the depression on the left. The block is around 100 m in diameter. This may be evidence of surface disruption and material ejection produced by sub-surface gas pressure build-up of a super-volatile such as CO or CO2. This concept could explain several observed structures on the nucleus. However, the proposal needs to overcome the high porosity of the nucleus and explain how gas can be trapped in a pocket so that pressure can build. Mechanisms producing sub-surface ice barriers (through volatile transport to colder areas within the nucleus) need to be considered.

Could one solution be an electromagnetic force pulling up, attracting or pushing the block?

There appears to be electrical activity on and around the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and the Suns solar wind (plasma) is also electrically charged.
