Bypassing the whole "Unproven Theory" misnomer, I guess it's time to dust off this old post...again:

Don't believe everything you read. Use your mind and skills of discernment.

They weren't zombies. They were like Lazarus whom Jesus rose from the dead.
I will believe everything I read in the Bible, thank you anyway.

You think it's cool to denigrate my beliefs by calling them zombies. I think you are pathetic.

No, it turned into a land of milk and honey. It was a really sticky situation. People swimming in milk and honey. No rocks or trees. Just milk and honey.

That's funny. My bible tells me that the land in Adam's day was irrigated from under the earth.

Not at all. Pangaea was one continent and all continents today separated to where they are after the flood in spite of what some say.

But that is what you said.

That's only a small percentage of what would be required to cover 29,000 foot mountains. Since geological evidence indicates the Appalachian Mountains are several million years old, it is a perfectly valid assumption that there were mountains when Noah lived. In any case, the lower of the two peaks on Mount Ararat is over 12,000 feet, so the figures based on that height must inherently be valid since that is the written resting place of the Ark.

Once again I ask, "Where did all that water come from?"
Tsk, tsk, it says right there in genesis that there is water held back by the vault of the sky. So all god needed to do was open up those doors and let the ocean up there pour down through the floodgates. And don't you go telling me that using the words vault and floodgate were metaphors! There is no such thing in the bible!

It is possible that, since there is 2 atoms of hydrogen per cubic centimeter out in space above the earth in the universe, it is possible that prior to the flood there was a huge amount of hydrogen trapped in orbit just above the earth. Then something pulled these hydrogen atoms into the atmosphere, mixed with oxygen and it looked like the windows of heaven had opened and these huge amounts of water came in streams down upon the earth.

Well now, how magnanimous of you to allow consideration of the truth of G-d's word about a global flood. First, the destination of all that water was...ahem...earth. The source of all that water was...ahem...earth...surrounding it, and underneath it and the rest gathered together into a single location..."seas." Secundo, formation of metamorphic rock produces water. Third, the radioisotope "age" for the Appalachian mountains of several million years, calculated on the assumption that radioactive decay has always occurred at today's rates, is a gross error. At any rate, G-d said "...the mountains were covered." Genesis 7:20 KJV, and is evidence sufficient to prove apart from your erroneous assumption about the age of the Appalachian mountains that there were mountains on the earth in Noah's day. "Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered." Genesis 7:20 KJV. Based on the plain text, the waters prevailed over the highest mountains by about 30 feet. Again, the voluminous amount of water required to sustain your belief in what G-d said was already here.
