Quote# 46296

Beaches and mountains are the indirect result of the Flood, which was created by God. There were no oceans prior to the Flood. Most of the Floodwater is out in the oceans.
Before the Flood, there were vast subterranean water chambers that existed under the thinner plates of the Earth's crust. During the Flood, these "fountains of the deep" broke open, and this water came to the surface, collapsing the chambers as they emptied, and creating the ocean basins. The rest of the water came from the collapse of the 7th layer of water/ice above the Earth. These two things combined caused everything on the Earth to be buried 2 miles deep in water. The weight of all this water on the Earth's crust caused the plates to shift and collide with each other and mountain ranges were built. As the thicker plates rose up, and the thinner plates sank, water drained rapidly off the surface, creating formations like the Grand Canyon, which used to be soft sediment at that time, and later mineralized into rock.
Beaches are created by these Flood-created oceans washing sediment against the edge of a land mass.

So, although mountains and beaches were not necessarily part of the original creation, they are definitely post-Flood creations.

Holy shit.

Geology and several other forms of science to not work that way.

This is the most bullshit I have ever read in my life regarding the flood.

Then how did Moses part the red sea, dumbass?

wow, my head hurts.

The Outsider

1) There is no evidence for any of that shit you just listed.

2) None of that stuff is even mentioned in the Bible.

3) Kent Hovind is not a good source for scientific information.

what the shit....Noah musta had a failboat

8/30/2008 7:20:16 AM


This is fucked up, right here.

8/30/2008 7:26:41 AM


Is what you just did "thinking", by any chance? In your case, it's hard to tell.

8/30/2008 7:28:47 AM


Yet another mind ruined by the insane ideas of Hovind. Personally, I think a few more years should be added to his sentence for this kind of damage alone.

8/30/2008 7:37:34 AM


So, in other words, God planned from the beginning to kill everyone?

8/30/2008 7:37:57 AM

Lithp, yes

8/30/2008 7:49:16 AM


Yeah, forces that make the atom bomb look like a little poop but Noah of course was floating happily on the sea...

Makes perfect sense.

8/30/2008 7:50:37 AM


I just love this pseudo-science. Hard evidence, please.

You must own a horse. An imagination that fertile requires a lot of compost.

Mountains are created by continental drive, and plate tectonics, the different landmasses pushing into each other. Beaches are caused by the ocean water breaking down rocks, coral, skeletons, shells and silicates to form sand.

Thus ends your micro lesson in reality.

"creating formations like the Grand Canyon, which used to be soft sediment at that time, and later mineralized into rock."

I'm not a geologist, but I'm pretty sure that GEOLOGY DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY!

8/30/2008 8:25:58 AM


GEOLOGY FAIL. Ocean level and erosion, learn them!

8/30/2008 9:11:21 AM


"There were no oceans prior to the Flood"

Now I think you might be contradicting your own Bible.

8/30/2008 9:48:00 AM


Read your own holy book, the one that starts

The Book of Genesis
1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

8/30/2008 9:48:37 AM


I call bull shit (oh wait looks like everybody knew that allready)

8/30/2008 10:06:30 AM


And every geologist and oceanographer in the world agrees with everything in this post.

8/30/2008 11:24:55 AM


Genesis 1 disagrees.

8/30/2008 11:44:37 AM


Actually, the Grand Canyon cannot have possibly been caused by a massive flood. Look at the way it is formed. It was carved out by a river for millions of years. And how can these "fountains of the deep" possibly exist? The amount of water in the oceans is incredible, and there would have to be a very big gap in he earth's crust that would have collapsed when the water drained out of it. And mountain building does not work that way, if so, then it would happen today at many places in the ocean that are already two miles down.

Another Atheist

"subterranean water chambers that existed under the thinner plates of the Earth's crust"
Notice, under. Water doesn't flow up, idiot. Here's an experiment for you. Pour a glass of water, then place a piece of paper on top of it. Take the paper off and watch the water float up and cover the surface you put the glass on in water (or not). Record the results.

Either he's making shit up as he goes along, or he's parroting his pastor. Fail either way.

8/30/2008 12:49:34 PM


Yahoo, nuke the damn place.
