Yeah, that was something I couldn't quite get my head around.
I googled it and all I could find is articles talking about mm, cm and metre rises in the sea levels.
And that is if all the glaciers, ice caps, permafrost etc continues melting at alarming rates.
The amount of water required to raise a boat to 4000metres above sea level is immense and would possibly require the whole polar ice caps to melt.
This would take centuries to occur.
The Bible says it rained as well and that the whole flood etc occurred over 40 days.
How much water would be required, in this short period to lift a boat up 4000metres, even if it were just a local flood.
Levels remained the same for 110 days then it took 73 days for levels to reduce.
All this water disappeared in just over two months.
Literally, where on earth did it go?
It couldn't have frozen so quickly, physical impossibility.
So, I just can't help but think there is something wrong here.
Either that just isn't Noah's Ark or there's something seriously wrong with the Biblical account!
Personally I suspect there is something amiss with the Biblical version of events and that if, and it's a big if, the structure is proven to be a
wooden boat then the only possible explanation is that someone / thing sailed the oceans in wooden boats millions of years ago.
Now where are those ancient civilisation and astronaut threads at????
