Probably the majority went back from whence they came...the springs of the great deep
whence they came....wouldn't that be the heavens?

Besides that, when water turns into ice, it EXPANDS. It takes up more space, not less. Therefore, we should be seeing ice about 3 miles deep completely covering the entire earth, which, of course, it does not. Scientists say if all the ice and snow in the entire world were to thaw out, the oceans would rise about 21 feet. Ain't enough.
So...if the flood was world-wide, and covered all the mountains, then where did all the water go?

Most of earths water will not be found in the oceans, but in the earth itself. A new study states that the earth may hold 10 times the amount of water than all the oceans combined. Consider the link below.

Yes and no.

"And God made the firmament and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so" Genisis 1:7

IIHO, (the earth pre-flood) was one big green house, that would explain findings of tropical forests in Alaska, evidences of palm trees on Greenland ect. It would also have some explanation to the longer life span of living things pre-flood rather than after-flood.

Excellent ref!

Once again..."faith" seems to be the dividing line

I believe the GREAT DEEP refers to a dense cloud covering that encircled the entire earth at the time, not the oceans as we have now. That same scripture seems to back up that theory, IE: the floodgates of the heavens...

Uh...that same link...says all that water is 400km down! (roughly 249 MILES)

If anyone here really believes that water and lava mix, send me a PM....I have some cheap ocean-front property in Phoenix I want to sell...
