A lot of good responses , Thank you all !!!!!!!
AS I have read Genesis, I have pick up so things that are not talked about Much and one thing that goes against Most teaching...
If You read real close and slow enough to were you can think of what you have just read (Thats the way I have to do or I will over look what I am
reading or at least the POINT ))))
What I'v have picked up in my reading is that after God had seprated the waters, Lets say he put 1/2 of all the waters in the sky and 1/2 under
ground and in some of the Bibles it says (and the sea) Which coule say ONE SEA..
As I under stand it is that the earth was most likely 90 To 95% Land and Maybe 5 to 10% water ON the Land,,,.
Now just think that God made the Earth to be home of many people and as have it, we can not live under wather nor can we do well on high mountins /
with out help of some thing, and as one of you said that it never rain till the Flood was sent.
So if the hole Planet was to hold people, there was no use for oceans and High mountains. as the Bible says that the earth was waterd each night by
the water comming up from the ground and watered the roots of all the plants and trees and also made small pons of clear clean water for who or what
ever wanted a drink..
The water in the sky made earth one big Green house and there were no polor caps to interfer with the growth of the poplation of of the land,, with
the green house effect, the hole planet could mantain a tempt. of a low at night of about 70 to 72 degrees and maybe 72 to 75 during the daylight
Now, just sticking with the water thought, when the flood came,, All the water came up from under the ground and the outer 1/2 fell out of the Sky
and with the Earth being mostly land and no mountains there would be enough water to cover the hole Planet OK....
Now to do something with the water that covers everything,,, You as God could have raised the Mountains and put in major ditches so the water would
have a place to go and only about 1/3 of the land became Dryed again so that the people could be seperated for 1000's of years and the technical
Knowlage of man would have to waite a long time before he could get enough people together in order make things as they studied from each other..
It took Noah 120 years to build the ark, it rained for 40 day and nights and the earth was under water for 150 days, Noah open the window on the ark
40days after the rain had stoped, after that, Noah let a raven out to see if there were any dry land, and it didn't so noah set out a Dove to see if
it could find dry land and it looked and looked and never found dry land.
Noah then waited 7 days and sent a nother Dove out to find dry land, and when the Dove returned to him in the evening and there in its Beak was a
freshly plucked olive leaf, them Noah wated another 7 days and sent another dove out again but this time, the Dove never came back.. By the first
dayof the first monthof Noah's six hundred and first year, the water had dried up on the earth..........
