I've read about so many flood theories, however, I do not think I agree with them. Let me enumerate:
1. With all the waters combined in the world, including the frozen north and south pole, I don't think it will manage to flood the whole world. You
will still see Mount Everest towering. Perhaps, many parts of the world will be flooded, but not substantial enough to cover the whole face of the
2. Regarding the fountains of the great deep that bursts forth, there are no evidences that a very huge volume of water lies hidden beneath the Earth
so as to have caused the floodings.
3. I don't quite agree with a local flooding. Where did all the water come from anyway to have cause massive local floodings? From a lake high above
However, I have another theoretical model to show you guys how a global flooding might be possible.
It is given that we only have so much volume of water available. So how can a world wide flood be possible?
Clue no. 1:
I believe the world before the flood was one huge landmass called "Pangea".
As you can clearly see in the gif animation, the huge landmass has experienced a separation. It looks more like it's expanding.
Clue no. 2:
Prepare an empty tin can and put a little water in it. Place the can on a heat source, it could be a bunsen burner or a stove. Wait for it to boil
until you see steam coming out from the spout. Now, turn the tin can upside down so that the spout is submereged first in the cold water. It is
observed that the tin can imploded. Cool.
Watch the video:
Clue no. 3:
Genesis 7:11 - In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, on the seventeenth day of the second month--on that day all the springs of the great deep
and the floodgates of the heavens were opened.
According to this verse, it is clearly understood that all the springs of the great deep burst forth.
- The "great deep" here denotes the depth of the oceans.
- The "springs" here denotes ocean volcanoes and geothermal vents.
- The "burst forth" here denotes an eruption.
"In 1977, scientists discovered hot springs at a depth of 2.5 km,
on the Galapagos Rift (spreading ridge) off the coast of Ecuador. This
exciting discovery was not really a surprise. Since the early 1970s, scientists had predicted that hot springs (geothermal vents) should be found at
the active spreading centers along the mid-oceanic ridges, where magma, at temperatures over 1,000 °C, presumably was being erupted to form new
oceanic crust. More exciting, because it was totally unexpected, was the discovery of abundant and unusual sea life -- giant tube worms, huge clams,
and mussels -- that thrived around the hot springs."
Kindly note that the Bible already knew that there are springs lies hidden in the great depths of the oceans. It's only in 1977 that we only knew
about this. Cool.
With regards to deep ocean volcanoes:
"The true extent to which the ocean bed is dotted with volcanoes has been revealed by researchers who have counted 201,055 underwater cones. This is
over 10 times more than have been found before.
The team estimates that in total there could be about 3 million submarine volcanoes, 39,000 of which rise more than 1000 metres over the sea bed."
