    It seems as though scientists have discovered a large ocean of water inside of the earths crust. Noah's ark anyone?

    The amount that's in the Arctic Ocean? Well, you only need a million such regions and you'd have all the water you need for the Flood.

    So where did you get this number? Off the top of your head perhaps?

    I've done the math in posts here before. I can't be bothered to look it up again when I know it'll be just discounted as "Math? Well I'll believe the Bible before I believe Math!".

    Amen, brother Whodey. Here is another exciting discovery:

    Well so much for the ocean theory, if you had actually read the piece you would have found out what they are talking about is a large chunk of rock with a 15% water content. Not exactly an ocean. That's 85% rock.

    Not only that, but plate tectonics would grind to a halt without the water there. Don't think there's any evidence of that having happened recently.

    My only purpose in posting this thread was to point out that science continues to find water sources within our own planet. There is no question that if the account of Noah's ark occured it occured via supernatural forces. The Bible only says that water fell from above and came up from the fountains of the deep. I am only pointing out that perhaps there is enough existing water in and on and above the planet earth to do the job as previously thought impossible.

    what is disturbing is that it links the bible to the core of the earth and gives the possiblity that it is real (although it doesnt prove it), and you do not die you just burn more

    If you believe in supernatural forces then surely you don't need there to be enough existing water on and above the planet for God to have caused the flood, he could have just made it appear and disappear.

    And I'm telling you that even if the entire Earth was 15% water that still wouldn't be enough to cover the tallest mountain plus a few extra cubits.

    There are mountains which do have a tendency to rise, Sister X. Sea fossils have been found on very high altitudes.

    These facts don't prove anything about a story or report in the Bible, but they certainly disprove your way of reasoning.

    Yes, the Himalayas are rising at an inch a year. That;d be a whopping 250 feet in the last 3,000 years, or 500 feet in the last 6,000 years.

    Oh wait, Mt Everest is 29,000 feet high....

    God is not a magician. God's ways are different.

    Then how come, Mr Rational, that sea-fossils have been found on mountains on very high altitudes ?
