The Great Dinosaur Mistake

More than a Rainstorm

But this flood was more than just water coming from a rain storm. We read that the fountains of the great deep were broken up. Look at the eleventh verse of the seventh chapter. It states,

"In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights." (Genesis 7:11-12)

So a deluge of rain fell, but in addition the fountains of the deep broke up.

It is interesting to examine the National Geographic oceanographic maps and observe that a system of ridges runs throughout the ocean floor. These are like a system of giant mountain ranges which spring up in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and can be traced all the way around the earth through the Indian and Pacific Oceans. The ridges, rising as much as 10,000 feet from the ocean floor, are built of volcanic rock, and rifts run along their length. Outpouring of water from the earth's crust is always associated with volcanic activity. Thus the term "fountains of the deep" may include both a rising up of the ocean floor some 10,000 feet as a result of global volcanic activity, and the outpouring of vast quantities of juvenile waters from the earth's crust. As a result vast tidal waves flooded the continents and covered the entire earth with water. There is enough water in the ocean now to cover all of the earth. All that is necessary is to rearrange the water and the land. The mid-Atlantic ridges provide evidence that in the past the ocean floor uplifted causing great tidal waves of water to overflow the land mass covering the whole earth with water and with mud. So in addition to the windows of heaven opening with rain, we have great tidal waves covering the earth. Such an event would cause a global cataclysm. If it happened as the Bible says, we ought to see evidence of such an event.
