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.

Edit: I checked and double checked, the textbook above really says 1.3 million km³. but at least two online sources say 1.3 billion km³
Ocean's Depth and Volume Revealed
Volumes of the World's Oceans from ETOPO1 | NCEI

That is still 4 times more than there is water on earth.

I am talking about the possibility of the global flood. I do not care about other noises. Do you agree that the global flood, at some time in the earth history, is a possibility?

No, you have to produce 4 billion cubic kilometer of extra water for that.

I guess you mean to flood the Himalayas?
It is not needed. There was no Himalayas.

Of course, silly me, floodists can declare a world and natural just as it suits them. A mount Everest that stands in the way, just declare the Himalays gone.

Nobody said the Himalayas is gone. I said it has not shown up yet.

As i said, floodists just build a world that suits them, detached from reality.
