I havent read every post here, but I am encouraged to see some thoughtful discussion and meditation over God's word. Good going guys.
Some science has shown that earthquakes are directly linked in some ways to the tides, as there are waters moving at a similar motion to the tide
under the tectonic plates.
Nice to see your input, and I do echo the encouragement that has left this Topic to a discussion.
Your outlook on the Firmament is quite accurate with one exception, I believe.
When considering the misleading translation of Genesis Chapter 6, it is believed the WHOLE GLOBE was flooded, but I believe it was the WHOLE AREA THAT
WAS SURROUNDING NOAH'S WORLD. The infestation of the Fallen with the Daughters of MAN seems to be one that was occuring within the decendants of
Cain, or the Serpents Seedline, and those decending from Adam, through Seth.
The question then is where did Noah live?
I'll try this quickly, and please, do not jump down my throat for offering this anyone. It is my view about a great many topics that are truthfully
ONE SUBJECT, and this is what I believe would be accurate.
We start in Eden, and the Garden. I frankly believe Eden and Atlantis where found within the same area. (That could be debated in another post.)
Adam and Eve sin, (which is another post) and they are expelled from the Garden and move east.
I was always under the impression, Natural barriers became the "Borders" in Ancient Times, and I have never seen any evidence that suggests
If Altantis was within the Atlantic, as Plato asserts in the "Account", I would expect Adam and Eve, would have be sent past the First Barrier,
which would seemingly be the "Pillars". I believe they inhabited the area of the Mediterranean Sea. We have that Serpents Seed, Cain, who kills
Adam's son, Abel, who is expelled and again goes east, which I believe is the next barrier to be found, the mountians/hills seperating the Med from
the Black Sea.
So, the "Regions of Habitation" for the descendants of Adam through Seth, and the Serpents Seedline through Cain and his spawn, would be set in the
exact regions that had a flood tale which coincides with a flood event that is believed to have occured around the timeframe we would expect to see
I also believe it is within these areas that we have the MASSIVE lore about gods and deities, and interbreeding with daughters of man producing men of
renown such as Hecules for example. In some Cases this breeding was inclusive of beasts.
Be that as it may, exactly what HUGH mountain range is within the Med Region? None, in comparision to say the Alps or the Himalayans. Hills and knolls
with some Peaks here or there.
This was the world of NOAH, and it is this region that we should expect the Whole FACE of the Earth was covered. Afterall, a Face is only part of the
Body of the Earth.
With that offered, I do not believe there was MASSIVE AMOUNTS of WATER behind the firament. Only enough to cause an increase in global water levels by
300', which historical evidence seems to suggest.
Certainly, the Age factor and the eliminations of dangerous Rays from the Sun, would still be a benefit, and we would have answers to questions like
how did the Ancients study the stars, and know of matters we only recently have been able to confirm. The firmament allowed them to view the Stars
like a huge Hubble, without the massive costs involved.
And as for your Tidal point, I worked for about 2 years on Night Sercurity, and listened to Noory on Coast2Coast quite a bit. He has a "REGULAR"
guest which comes on every month or so, who predicts Quakes and Tremors, with some accuracy to say.
He uses the Moon, along with Tidal motions to point to a period when events would occur, and then points to a specific area where increases in MISSING
PETS are notices within the local area papers. Somehow he then tells the C2C listeners where a quake will occur, and he has been quite close to both
Size and Location.
He also reviews papers from around the world which offer strange occurances of wildlife, like say a migration of some spieces from one area to
another, that is occuring within the Window of the Moon and Tides at there best time for Quakes and such, and I believe he was quite accurate with
this is predicting events in the Far East.
I do not remember who this guy was, but the point was, you are quite right in suggesting Tides and Quakes have some relation to eachother.
