Earth Tilt Question

Do folks think that the earth may have tilted on its axis as a result of Noah's flood?

Thought?

Or maybe it's a result of the Fall...

How could we tell these two possibilities apart?

The tilt of the axis was not caused by the flood but rather the flood was caused by the tilt of the axis (the birth of Venus).

The tilt of the axis was probably caused when, late in its formation, the still young Earth was struck by a colossal body around the size of Mars. This huge impact would have caused the nearly-full-sized Earth to "shift" in position.

This also caused the formation of the moon.

So, where is this?

Maybe a giant meteor or jumping bean hit the earth in Venus and caused the flood.

Okay.

Anyone else have a thought on whether the flood and earth's tilt are related?

No.

The Earth's tilt is almost certainly the result of something really big and really fast smashing into it.

A flood (lowercase) probably happened, a lot. The Flood (uppercase) never did.

Edit: You may not be aware, but you've just opened a HUGE can of worms... you'd honestly be better of asking your pastor if you wanted just the straight literalist answer.

For a creationist to postulated that only reflects poorly on their adherence to Genesis. Genesis 1:14 already mentions that the seasons exist, so the tilt was there before the flood - even if I were to limit myself to a literal reading.

Don't know about the worms. Don't want to argue about it. Just asking.

So, if it were a local flood, nothing changes.

If it were a worldwide flood, maybe it changes or not really?

If the earth was never tilted, but it is now, then something happened? Worldwide flood? Meteor? Other?
