Re: Re fossils
In fact the entire earth declares that it has been covered with water at least one time in the past as the fossils in and on the mountains are evidence of such an event.

Fossils on mountains are only evidence of a Noachian flood if you assume that the mountains have always been that high. Given that there are massive amounts of independent evidence showing that this is not the case, the only reason to make this assumption would be to save the flood myth. This, of course, would amount to circular reasoning.

You are entitled to your own beliefs. You are not entitled to your own facts.

Re: Re fossils
If that is not a fact then will you explain how they got there?

I did.

The mountains weren't always that high.

Read much?

Re: Re fossils
Were they covered by water?

Not when they were mountains. Was the land that is now on top of the mountain ever covered in water? Yes, when it was at the bottom of a sea.

Have you forgotten my avatar with the land all in one place that I said was only 2 feet above sea level and therefore would not take much water to cover it?

Yes. I try not to clutter my mind up with valueless nonsense, although sometimes a bit sticks on until I can clean it off with mental toilet paper. Your prior avatar doesn't happen to have been one such sticky bit.
