quote:Flood needs water. The earth has a lot of seawater. This satisfies the first requirement. Of course, there are other requirements. But, in the solar system, the earth is the only place allows a global flood.
Admit that first. This eliminates the statement: the global flood is impossible.
According to a "Oceanography", Paul Pinet, ®1992, West publishing Company, all the seas and oceans combined contain 1.36 million km³ of water. Taking the Mount Everest at 8 kilometers, and the Earth radius at 6371 km, the volume of the shell, to cover the entire water is given by: V= 4/3 * Pi* (R³-r³)
Filling in the numbers give a required volume of water of 4 083 570 535 km³. That's more than 4 billion km³. So your claim that there is plenty of water to cover the earth falls short.
