Re: The Biblical Flood Really Happened
Disclaimer: I have often considered creating a CreationistRingo alter ego to debate the other side. (I have been called argumentative and I can't deny it wthout shooting myself in the foot.)

by applying the same power over water that was later displayed by Moses at the Red Sea, except instead of making a passage across the sea it made the water sweep over the land until it covered everything;
