Re: The flood and the geological column

I wonder how much rain that would be if you were standing outside trying to calculate how many inches of rain was falling per hour.

We know that there was enough rain for the new sea level to be more than 29,000 feet above today's sea level, to cover the highest mountains. I think someone calculated the volume of water that would be in an old thread, but I cannot find it. To get that volume of water coming down in just forty 24 hour days (960 hours) seems like it would make the air almost solid water. I wonder if you would drown just standing there? How fast would the water rise if you were standing in the middle of the Bonneville Salt Flats? Let's see, 29,035 ft (elevation of Mt. Everest above sea level) divided by 960 hours =30.2 feet per hour, so 6 inches a minute. That's not too bad. I would have to start treading water in 10 minutes or so.

I guess you are right, it was not just another flood.
