agree that jtl's argument is poor, however, the nazis were not atheists. Communists, certainly, but hitler often referenced the creator and apparently was more of a christian. There were others in the party that were sort of new-agey/theosophistic pagan-revival types, but not many atheists that I am aware of. Certainly all the preists and ministers and deacons who were part of the party weren't athiests.

hitler was a self confessed catholic
Thus, my starting assumptions assume significant climate instability post-Flood and rapid accumulation of snow and ice
If one starts with the uniformitarian paradigm, it is easy to see how the various methods appear to be corroborating
He would have fitted right in 700 years ago.

Well yeah, all you have to do is ask for forgiveness of your sins and you are allowed into heaven, according to christians, unless you are gay, female, black, jewish, or anything else but rich white heterosexual christian males.
Science can be right Nygdan, they are right about round earth, unlike religon. So science 1, religon 0.
Science can know that humans can't live to be 900+ years old, unlike religon. So science 2, religon 0.
Science knows that the earth isn't the center of the universe, unlike religon. So science 3, religon 0.
Science knows there is nothing in the clouds, well, except airplanes, birds, so forth, but according to religon clouds are heaven. So, science 4, religon 0.
Not enough water on this planet for a world flood. Sure enough to make most islands bye bye, and anyone within a hundred miles of the ocean coast bye bye, but the whole world? No. So science 5, religon 0.
According to religon disease is an act of god, while science knows it is germs, viruses, not supernatural. So science 6, religon 0.
It's not always easy to prove something in science, but when you do, we have proof. While all religon has is a book, written by the elite to control the masses. Also, science looks for the answer, while religon says it has the answer, and even though everything points to it being wrong, it is right because I have my head up my ass. Faith is nothing but a crutch for those to weak to walk on their own.

" If the earth were flat, that would be a pretty short distance God removed our transgressions. However, if it's a sphere, east and west are infinitely distant.
That was Catholic doctrine from back in the day. I'd be very curious to see where in that oh so popular book it makes that claim.
A major geothermal event could, potentially, heat up the water underground to the point of bursting from the ground as vapor, then raining back onto the ground.
Over time, it would be reabsorbed into the empty cavities that would result, and there would not appear to be enough water on the surface to constitute a global flood.

Psalm 104:8 (NASV) says, “The mountains rose; the valleys sank down …” This appears to be at the end of the Flood.
Calculations show that if you could “flatten” all the mountains and make the earth smooth
like a billiard ball, there would be enough water to cover the entire earth by 1-1/2 to 2 miles of water.
