Funny how OE theory has all these worldwide floods that come and go, instead of the one Flood that did it all at once.

To be fair, our OE theories have a few billion years for loads of stuff to happen. A billion years is pretty much impossible for humans to conceptualise, but in that time, for example, the continents which we're used to seeing as immutable, can bounce together like tennis balls, and morph like putty.

I guess this might seem like it's a bit convenient, but it's where the evidence leads - all of it.

We've probably had enough time for several global floods, but as I understand it, there's nary a square foot of the planet's surface that hasn't been underwater for a few million years, over time, simply as a result of tectonic movement.

The passage of inconceivable periods of time, combined with simple maths, is what makes the science of the earth's history so compelling.

Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?
