If it really rained for forty days and nights, rained enough to cover the world's tallest mountains, that means there would have to have been hundreds of billions of tons of water in order to cover the entire planet.

That means there couldn't be anywhere left for the water to go. Everything would be filled up with water. This means cave systems would have had to have been filled with water too.

So, why isn't there any evidence of a worldwide flood in cave systems such as Mammoth Cave National Park?

And two, where could all the water have gone to?

If it evaporated, how could it have evaporated so quickly?

God did all of that and then made all the evidence go away to test your faith

Simple answer because there was no GLOBAL flood.

No flood
In addition to cave systems, there should be evidence of the flood everywhere.

You should be able to do an excavation in your back yard and find it.

At the time period attributed to the flood, ca. 4,350 years ago, you are dealing with soils, not geological formations. (Scratch the k-t and the Cambrian.)

So why aren't creationists out digging in their back yards? Or at least accompanying archaeologists along on excavations to see for themselves what the soils around 4,350 years ago look like?

Because the evidence isn't there and everyone knows it.

That's why they have to propose outlandish places where the evidence is hiding, like the k-t and the Cambrian.


Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.

No Biblical Flood
There is genetic evidence that shows the Biblical Flood never happened.

There is geological evidence that shows that the Biblical Flood never happened.

There is archeological evidence that shows that the Biblical Flood never happened.

There is cultural evidence that shows that the Biblical Flood never happened.

The Biblical Flood simply never happened and anyone making a claim that it did is at best delusional, hopefully simply ignorant.

AnswersInGenesis seems to be confused about when cave-formation took place:

quote:
Thus, cave formation is not necessarily a post-Flood phenomenon as Strahler thought. It could have formed anytime after the limestone was first deposited in the Flood, since hydrothermal water would be expected to begin moving through the limestone soon after deposition.

Not necessarily post-Flood but after the Flood?

I'm under the impression that creationists generally believe caves to have formed after the flood, so lack of flood evidence in the caves is not a problem for them. Of course, they still have to scramble to squeeze cave-formation into a very short time span and to explain where the water went.

But you realize that the scientists who have proved these so-called facts are all atheists, right?

Topic getting rejected
1) Message 1 not up to new topic standards (and not even anything directly to do with Noah's ark, which is in the topic title).

2) Not a "Coffee House" type topic. This should have gone through the Proposed New Topics process.

3) Several of the reply messages are worthless. Forum topics are not chat lines.

4) Adminnemooseus is overdue for having a bout of crankiness.
