Read the link again. Scientists think that 400-500 miles below the crust there are vast bodies of water. By vast they meAn oceans. Not microscopic. However, since it is so deep and we cant seem to reach there, it is only a theory. The water trapped in these crytaline rocks is the proof for the theory.
Please take another look and read other sources if it does actually interest you.

My 2 cents on the matter.
First we have to take in account that most of the civs back then thought the world was flat and the centre of the universe and that by no means they had any idea how big is the world. Also the most literate civs out there from which the myths sprang were concentrated near rivers and sea...China, India, Mesopotamia, Greece, Egypt...
So when the flood happened...it could be a major flood but I understand why they thought it was a world flood because it probaby completely obliterated the settlements they were living in which were prone to floods due to low altitude. I would love to hear some myths about great flood from Tibet or Incas who were high above water....then the plot would definitely deepen
Archimedes' principle indicates that the upward buoyant force that is exerted on a body immersed in a fluid, whether fully or partially submerged, is equal to the weight of the fluid that the body displaces. Archimedes' principle is a law of physics fundamental to fluid mechanics
