Tell that to the 900 people that drowned in New Orleans in 2005.

Have you heard of atmospheric pressure, Faith? We still have it today, and it’s a thing. Relative humidity is another thing. Blankets of water vapor can create problems with both.

Re: Basics Faith, basics.
It’s not just totally unscriptural - it’s totally nonsensical.

Re: silly all one type of rock nonsense.
No resemblance to real rivers except for the piddly little trifles like channels, riverine sediments, banks, deltas......

Hell, Faith! Read up at least at the 11th-grade level on what you’re planning to write about before you start typing. There are hundreds of fossil riverbeds just in the oilfields of northern Oklahoma alone. The sand made some of the really good reservoirs of the last century - and were easy to find besides!

Re: Floods can't create this.
Yeah, the Sahara Desert is pretty famous for all the water forming sand dunes there.

Re: Moving post about the prehistoric geological past
So supernovas, or solar eclipses, or volcanic eruptions and earthquakes tell us nothing scientifically useful whatsoever. They aren’t repeatable.
Got it! Thanks for enlightening me!

Re: Land sediments sandwiched between marine sediments
Does not compute? Are you still using that Eniac? Or an abacus?

Re: layers don’t represent time periods
This complete misunderstanding of yours seems to be at least partly recent. But it’s still bizarre. The Canyon Reef, about a mile below where I am sitting, is a great big hunk of limestone. It grew in place in the shallows of the North American Seaway that we’ve been talking about here. It GREW, similarly to reefs today, by organisms at its surface forming limestone around themselves. It grew thicker at way slower than an inch every year, just like reefs do now.

The Canyon Reef is up to a third of a mile thick in places. It’s one BIG ROCK, made entirely out of fossil shells of critters. They all grew at the surface of the rock (yes, under a few feet of water, but at the rock surface.

I have no idea, Faith, what you have as your mental image of how rocks in general form, but it isn’t an accurate image. Not at all

If the amount of water you need is what it takes to raise the worldwide level by 1100 feet, you might have a point there! That’s only 41,000,000 cubic miles of water to find and then get rid of!

Do some math before you post weird factoids, Juvinessun.

So where did it hide? In a cube somewhere?

Re: Time scales
Why does anyone need to consider whether Noah lived to an age of 600 years? Dumuzid the Shepherd reigned over Sumeria for 36,000 years, and that was before the Sumerian Flood. Jushur lived right after that flood, and was in office for 1200 years. What about them? What about a little basic biology, which rules out absurdly long lifespans like any of these?
And don’t get me started on the geological history of Venus. You know it never had water how, exactly? Bald assertion?

Re: Time scales
Do YOU know how much water is stored in a kilogram of a typical granite, Juve? How easily can you, or Mother Nature, get it out of there?
