it is always glad to read you, hans.
I am sure TWISI will turn up again some day.
Hey Bigfatfurrytexan, there was a great flood because of all the legends from people around the world (wiki flood myth). I came across that when I
first started to comment on this site a few years ago. Your comment about the water causing parts of a continent to move up or down is correct and I
didn't think about it until I googled the weight of 1 cubic meter of water. And it weighs 1,000 kilograms at 4 degrees celsius, and they say that
the temperature is important because density of water is effected by temperature and this temperature is water at it's densest. And at one thousand
kilograms that brings it to a little over 1 ton or 2,204.6 pounds. That isn't alot of water when you look at it, but it still weighs alot. And if
you add on that the same size of soil weighs 1.5 tons (give or take the moisture content).
So look at the last Ice Age, at where New York City is the ice was 1 mile thick and if you went further north into northern Canada, it was 2 miles
thick. This made the oceans 100 to 150 meters lower than today (but I think the oceans where closer to 250 to 400 meters lower, thats just to much
water that is trapped and also the effect of evaporation). So while the rest of the planet had areas and places that where very much dry lands until
the flood and/or archapeligos (like greece) and there was no seaway between Iran and Saudi Arabia at this time (You can find a good sea simulator
online that will allow you to lower and raise the sea level). Once the ice age started to warm up, the ice melted and water (specifically fresh water
started to flood into lands). But what caused much of the great flood (not all people had it happen at once some may have had water rising a decade
before etc., but most had it happen at one time), was from the ice dams. One happened in the upper plain states, what happens is that while the ice
melts, it not only start to flow into other areas but also into ice lakes that are on the surface of the ice sheets and also ice caverns inside the
ice sheets. So as the decades continue and centuries this water continues to build and build and build to the point that it may have a few oceans of
freash water sitting inside and on top of the super ice sheets. Then one day the ice dam/wall breaks and the water flows out and like any dam that
breaks the water quickly makes the open larger and larger until the massive amout of water is flowing out.
Heck there where some small ones and large ones and super big breakouts that may have happened more than once, but just imagine what I said about how
big those ice sheets where. Imagine 1/2 mile deep and 200 mile wide and 300 mile long (being very conservative it may have been alot bigger) of fresh
water is trapped behind a glacial wall that is breaking all at once. That water hitting an ocean or sea would cause a massive tsunami of water to
form from the introduction of the water pushing the sea forward. And then you will have to contend with the massive amount of weight that is put on
the land in front of the water that is filling up the basin and the weight leaving the cavity/land/ice shelf. One side would move up (don't know by
how much but it would) and the other side would go down. Just this alone could cause a ripple affect of earthquakes to happen (big ones) across the
planet and definitely cause some volcanoes to erupt from the compression and the decompression of the landmasses from the weight distribution.
It's hard for us to imagine a landmass to move up lets say 900 feet (I believe that the water lakes could have been as large as 2,000 miles both
direction and at least 1/2 mile deep all of a sudden just emptying into the ocean basin). Everyone has been schooled to believe that geological
activity takes eons and epochs to happen, but yet we see as an example from the 70's Mount Saint Helens blowing it's top off and half the volcano
sloughing off, quickly. And then these massive earthquakes cause other ice dams to break etc.. And I don't even take into account what would happen
to the planet with all the earthquakes and the massive amounts of water weight being sloshed back and forth into the ocean. Would it move the axis a
little or alot, after the Japan quake, it did effect the axis. I think their was an advanced planet spanning civilization during the Ice age, and
once this horrible effent happened it caused a new dark ages and survivors of this planet spanning civilization and what was left of the old world
tried to start the world back up via what was left and what they knew. These individuals may have been the helpers to the egyptians, and other
civilizations we know today (Olmecs, I think part of the secret is with the Olmecs of central and south america)
Most civilizations tend to be by a large body of water or river, and with the flooding happening most of this old world and cities are underwater
either off shore a few miles or underwater where land used to be and then the ocean came back to claim it. Like I said, once I figured out the weight
of water it hit me that this massive weight moving quickly could have easily caused earthquakes and filled areas quickly.
