    From above and below.

    Genesis 7:11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
    Technically it was.

    Genesis 1:7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

    Notice God shears off a layer of sea water and takes it out into space.

    It came back through the "windows of heaven" the year of the Flood.

    All they needed was a small amount.

    Remember how God fed the widow of Zarephath?

    1 Kings 17:16 And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah.

    This is nothing to do with physics. Why are you posting it in the physics thread?

    Anyone who thinks science had anything to do with the Flood deserves to be posting here begging for evidence and scratching their heads raw -- and being denied what it is they're looking for (evidence).

    Which is every professional creationist.
    You're barking up the wrong tree pal.

    For the record, my pastor believes God raised up a land bridge so the Israelites could cross the Red Sea after He parted the waters.

    When Pharaoh went after them, He simply lowered the bridge and released His hold on the water.

    I don't know that it did seep 'back' into the earth, since it never came from there to start with for the most part probably.

    Then it was pumped off the earth after having been recalled.

    Or simply ordered off.

    Whatever.

    For the record, your pastor makes sift up to keep your tithes comin' in.*

    We call them "miracles."
    Either that, or it was God's judgement on the earth that ended the dispensation of conscience, and started the dispensation of human government.

    Because I can't find this thread in any other part of CF, chief.

    Are you okay?

    And for the record, this isn't my thread.

    Call it what you like. Whatever helps to suppress the truth in unrighteousness, I suppose.
    Yep, no evidence for this either. But whatever you need to believe to sleep at night.

    So? are they somehow exempt?
    About what? I'm just giving my opinion.

    If you disagree, then fine -- keep looking and begging for evidence.

    See if I care.

    I don't either.

    I think God took the whole shebang to another planet.

    (With the exception of the coccoliths.)

    And what IS this evidence?
    Ah, the 'loving God' gambit...
    So this is what you were talking about...

    So... 4 breeding pairs on the ark - 8 people. 5 of whom were close relatives, and 1 pair of which did not contribute to the post-flood re-population extravaganza. So, all 7 billion people alive today are direct descendants of these 3 breeding pairs (and by extension, Noah).

    There is no reason to believe that these breeding pairs were not all from the same region, and thus all of the same 'ethnicity' - especially given the fact that Noah was in only the 10th generation of all humans!

    So, we have a rather homogeneous gene pool from which to produce all extant variations - to paraphrase our old non-biologist pal Justatruthseeker - Asians, Africans, and every other distinct 'race' of humans, all from 3 related and homogenous breeding pairs.

    Let's see your population genetics model that can account for this.

    I am especially curious to see how you will account for, for example, the alleles associated just with ABO blood groups.

    And then, of course, things are much worse for the 'unclean' animals, genetically speaking - a single breeding pair. Elephants are apparently unclean.

    So just 2 elephants to feed and house and clean up after...

    But then there are the other elephantids and their non-elephantid relatives - after all, no macroevolution allowed! - mammoths and mastadons, gomphotheres, etc... My goodness that ark is very very rapidly running out of room - even BEFORE we learn of the magical genetics!

    And apparently it is 7 PAIRS of clean animals... Animals like bison and cattle... 14 bison - is that a herd?

    Can't wait to be thrilled with specific scientific evidence and details for how all this happened! And because this is TRUE, there must be all kinds of evidence for it all!

    Looks like you're SOL (short on luck).

    Well, in the real world (you know, the one outside your Sunday walls) evidence is required for extraordinary claims. So, as long as you guys keep making claims, we'll keep asking for evidence.

    Yup.

    Academia would call that a "population bottleneck."

    One that should have ended in extinction.

    Yet it didn't.

    I wonder how that happened?*

    * Not really. ;)
