Sun was created on day 1.
Earth was created on day 3.
Four moons of Earth were created on day 4.
A greater moon (Theia) and a lesser Moon (our current moon) and two much smaller moons (Ceres and ????).

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven
And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

3 billion years ago Theia's decaying orbit reached the Roche limit and over the next 1 billion years Theia deposited all of its mass onto a ring of mountains circling the earth's equator.

First the ices (water, carbon dioxide, & ammonia)on its surface were deposited. This created Earths ocean (and atmosphere). Since the earth at that time had no continents the water completely flooded its surface.

Then the granodiorite was deposited. The granodiorite metamorphosed into the various rocks of the continental crust.

Then 2.4 billion years ago the dunite was deposited. This created the banded iron formations. The dunite sank to the bottom of the mantle.
During all this time Earth would have had a ring like Saturn. From the ground this ring would have looked very much like a rainbow.

And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
Make thee an ark of gopher wood;
And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth
And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:
I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

If Noah was born 3 billion years ago then Adam was born 4.5 billion years ago.


Why BELIEVE that it will rain today when you can KNOW that it might rain today. Belief is unnecessary and illogical.

A moral person is a person that understands that the universe does not revolve around their ego.

A civilized society is a society whose laws do not revolve around any one person or group of people.
The more a society treats everyone as equals the more civilized it is.

This is an unattributed cut-n-paste from the webpage At-a-glance/The Flood2 over at Religion Wiki. The story isn't familiar to me, it's completely unevidenced, it obviously has no scientific basis and appears to violate known physical laws, it also doesn't appear based upon anything in the Bible despite the Bible references, and it's pretty crazy.

Thread proposal rejected.
