QUESTIONS  #17



What Triggered the Flood?




God initiated the flood because of man's sin. At the end of the creation week, all that God created was "very good" (Genesis 1:31), so the flood was not inevitable at that time. In other words, the earth was not created with a "ticking time bomb." Nor was the universe created with killer comets, asteroids, or meteoroids aimed at earth. Indeed, their presence at the end of the creation week would not have been "very good" 


THE  CHOAS  IN  THE  UNIVERSE  IN  DIFFERENT  WAYS  WAS  THE  RESULT  OF  THE  WAR  BETWEEN  SATAN,  THE  DEMONS,  AND  THE  HOLY  ANGELS  OF  GOD;  RESULTING  IN  THE  EARTH  BEING  COVERED  WITH  WATER  IN  A  VIOLET  WAY;  WHEN  GOD  BROUGHT  FORTH  THE  WORK  OF  6  DAYS,  IT  WAS  INDEED  GOOD  -  Keith Hunt


Later, because of the depth of man's sin (Genesis 6:5-6), God flooded the entire earth. We may never know just how the physical chain of events for the flood began, but the Bible gives some intriguing clues.


NO,  THE  EARTH  WAS  NOT  COVERED  WITH  A  GLOBAL  FLOOD  IN  NOAH'S  DAY  -  Keith Hunt


The hydroplate theory, summarized on pages 105-141, shows how a global flood, corresponding in every detail to the Genesis flood, easily explains otherwise mysterious features of the earth and solar system. This theory requires (1) a large volume of water under the earth's crust, and (2) pillars that partially supported the crust. Although the Bible speaks in several places of considerable subterranean water (see page 355), how and when did the pillars form?


NO  PROBLEM  WITH  WATERS  UNDER  THE  EARTH;  OBVIOUSLY  THERE  IS  AS  MAN  HAS  DISCOVERED  -  Keith Hunt


Rock Movement. 


First, visualize an important feature of the newly created, preflood earth. Imagine the entire earth's surface covered by a sandwich arrangement in which a horizontal layer of rock (which will become the earth's crust) has a layer of water above and below it. The rock layer is almost 10 miles thick; each water layer is about 3/4 mile thick. The water above this rock layer is surface water; the confined water below is subterranean water. If the rock layer were perfectly uniform in thickness and density, everything would be in balance. Equilibrium would exist.


No doubt variations existed in the rock's thickness and density. The heavier parts would sag (bend) downward, like an overloaded floor, causing additional surface water to flow into each depression. That added weight would increase each sag. More surface water would flow into the growing depressions, driving each sag even deeper.1


Some sagging rock would also be squeezed downward through the subterranean water, forming protrusions—or "pillars"—pressed against the chamber floor. This is because the pressure within the rock at the base of the rock layers thicker, denser portions would exceed the subterranean water's pressure pushing upward. If that pressure difference exceeded the rock's shear strength at any point, rock would "flow" downward, deforming like putty. (Compression tests on cylinders of rock subjected to high confining pressures, but larger axial loads, show that the rock cylinders deform like putty.)


WELL  ALL  IDEAS  THAT  COULD  TODAY  BE  BASED  UPON  WHAT  MAN  HAS  FOUND  UNDER  THE  CRUST  OF  THE  EARTH  -  Keith Hunt


Dry Land Appears. 


At the end of the first creation day, Day 1, water covered the entire earth. On Day 2, God made a "raqia" that sharply separated ("badar") the liquid water ("mayim") above from the liquid water below. On Day 3, land rose out of the surface water, in preparation for the creation of plants, animals, and humans. (Water thicknesses are exaggerated to illustrate events of Days 2 and 3. Dimensions are estimates.)


Sequence is important. 


If the Sun and Moon, created on Day 4, had existed before pillars formed, the Sun and Moon's powerful gravity would have greatly deformed the temporarily unstable crust. To understand why, see "Energy in the Subterranean Water" on pages 424-429. Pillars, the foundations of the earth, maintained stability.


Recognizing that a large amount of water was under the preflood crust, as the Bible states, is essential to understanding the flood. Our failure to understand basic physical aspects of the flood opened the door to evolution and a belief, by some, in a multibillion-year-old earth.


THE  SUN  AND  MOON  WERE  NOT  CREATED  ON  DAY  4;  THEY  ALREADY  EXISTED.  THE  IDEAS  OF  BROWN  DO  NOT  HOLD  WATER  WHEN  IT  COMES  TO  GOD,  ALLOWING  WHAT  WAS  ALLOWED  IN  DESTROYING  THE  EARTH  IN  THAT  HEAVENLY  WAR  THE  BIBLE  SPEAKS  OF,  THE  EARTH  COVERED  WITH  WATER  -  GEN. 1:2;  AND  HOW  GOD  THEN  BROUGHT  FORTH  THE  LAND  AND  SEAS  AND  WATER  UNDER  THE  CRUST.  TO  TRY  TO  FIX  IT  ALL  IN  BROWN'S  MODERN  SCIENCE  MEANS  NOTHING  TO  GOD;  HE  DOES  THINGS  THE  WAY  HE  DOES  THEM,  AND  DOES  NOT  HAVE  TO  OBEY  MODERN  SCIENCE  -  Keith Hunt


Downward protrusions (pillars) would grow like the downward flow in a lava lamp, except that the rock, being a solid instead of a liquid, had internal strength due to atomic bonding. The deeper the pillars went, the greater this pressure difference would become, so rock would "flow" even deeper until all pillars pressed against the chamber floor. Pillars carrying an excessive load would thicken and penetrate slightly into the chamber floor.


AGAIN  BROWN'S  IMAGINATION,  MAYBE  BASED  UPON  WHAT  CAN  BE  SEEN  UNDER  SOME  PARTS  OF  THE  CRUST  OF  EARTH  TODAY;  WATER  BEING  UNDER  THE  EARTH  THERE  IS  NO  QUESTION,  BUT  ACCORDING  TO  BROWN'S  IDEAS,  BIG  QUESTIONS  -  Keith Hunt


Likewise, the thinner, less-dense portions of the rock layer would have risen up out of the water, forming continents. Keep in mind that the confined subterranean water had essentially a fixed volume. Therefore, as rock sagged downward and as pillars were squeezed downward, this fixed volume of subterranean water forced the thinner parts of the rock layer upward.


THINNER  PARTS….. SPECULATIONS…..  GOD  BRINGS  FORTH,  BROUGHT  FORTH  THE  LAND  AS  HE  DESIRED  -  Keith Hunt


If, on Day 2 of the creation week, our "sandwich" encircled the earth like the outer three rings of an onion, water would cover the entire earth. In the following hours, the thinner portions of the crust would rise out of the surface water and become dry land. Water would drain into depressions. This seems to be what happened on Day 3 (Genesis 1:9-10). Water covered the entire earth, then "God said, 'Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear'; and it was so. And God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas;" 


NO  BIG  DEAL;  GOD  FORMED  THE  LANDS  AND  THE  SEAS,  WITH  RIVERS  AND  LAKES,  AND  WATERS  UNDER  THE  EARTH  -  Keith Hunt


Genesis 1:9 says that the waters below the heavens were gathered into one place (i.e., one big ocean). Why, then, in the next verse did God call the collected waters "seas"— plural? Answer: Multiple seas were honeycombed below the crust. The Interpreter's Bible explains:


"Seas" embraces more than the waters upon the face of the earth; it includes also the (supposed) subterranean waters upon which the earth was believed to rest... and the circumfluent ocean, upon which the pillars of the firmament stood? Psalm 24:2a specifically states that God "founded it [the earth] upon the seas"


SEA  OR  SEAS  -  IT'S  HOW  YOU  LOOK  AT  IT  -  THE  SEAS  ARE  ONE  LARGE  CONNECTED  BODY  OF  WATER  ON  THE  EARTH [INCLUDING  WHAT  GOES  UNDER  THE  EARTH]  -  ALL  ONE;  YET  "SEAS"  PLURAL,  AS  DIFFERENT  PARTS  WE  GIVE  DIFFERENT  NAMES  TO  -  ATLANTIC,  PACIFIC,  INDIAN  -  OCEANS  AND  ETC.  -  Keith Hunt


Interestingly, Day 2 was the only creation day in which the Bible does not expressly say God saw that day's work was "good" Certainly, nothing bad was done on the second day, because at the end of the creation week, God saw that all He had made was "very good" Apparently, the second day's activity was not completed until Day 3.


A  TECHNICALITY  THAT  REALLY  MEANS  NOTHING,  FOR  AS  STATED  AT  THE  END,  GOD  LOOKED  AT  IT  ALL  AND  IT  ALL  WAS  "VERY  GOOD"  -  Keith Hunt


Now we can see why. On Day 2, after the crust was created with liquid water above and below it, the crust began to deform. Heavier portions sagged and squeezed down pillars, while lighter portions rose out of the water. On Day 3, after the pillar structure had been established (the foundations of the earth were laid), God stated in Genesis 1:10 that "it was good." Later on Day 3, after vegetation was created, God made a similar statement. Thus, Day 3 was the only creation day in which two "it was good" pronouncements were made.


OKAY  A  TECHNICALITY  THAT  MEANS  NOTHING  PER  SE  AS  TO  PROVE  ANY  DOCTRINE  -  Keith Hunt


Psalm  104:3,  in   describing Day 2, 3  states   (with  my interpretations in brackets), "He lays the beams [pillars] of His upper chambers [the crust]  in the [subterranean] waters" By Day 3,   surface  water  had  drained  into depressions, forming dry land—a "good" condition (Genesis 1:10) necessary for the life God would create next.


ALL  BROWN'S  THOUGHTS  MAYBE  BASED  UPON  WHAT  HE  LOOKS  AT  TODAY  IN  SOME  PARTS  OF  THE  WORLD;  BUT  THE  TECHNICALITY  OF  HOW  GOD  DID  IT  IS  NOT  IMPORTANT,  THE  FACT  HE  DID  IT  IS  THE  IMPORTANT  THING  -  Keith Hunt


Peter also seems to describe these events in II Peter 3:3-6. He states that in the latter days mockers will not understand that, "the earth was formed out of water and by water, through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water"


WATER  IS  THE  THEME  OF  PETER  NOT  THE  TIME  FRAME  OR  TRYING  TO  PROVE  NOAH'S  FLOOD  WAS  GLOBAL  -  FORMING  AND  DESTRUCTION  IS  THE  THEME  IN  PETER'S  MIND;  SOME  NOT  BELIEVING  THE  PAST  FORMING  AND  DESTRUCTION;  SO  MANY  AT  THE  END  WILL  NOT  BELIEVE  THE  FORMING  AND  DESTRUCTION  TO  COME  ON  EARTH  -  Keith Hunt


This is consistent with the following interpretation: On Day 2, a nearly horizontal crust, or "expanse," was formed in the midst of the liquid water covering the earth (Genesis 1:2,6,7,9). On Day 3, lighter portions of the crust rose out of the water, causing water above the rising crust to flow into depressions (Genesis 1:10). In other words, the earth (its crust) was formed out of (rose out of) surface water and was formed by pressure from subterranean water. Some might incorrectly think "forming the earth out of water" implies alchemy—water (H20) was changed into Si02, (Mg,Fe)2Si04, and a host of other minerals that comprise rock (Even if alchemy occurred, one would not say rock formed by water.) Actually, "out of" is used in a spatial sense. The King James Version clearly conveys this idea of the land rising out of water: "... the earth standing out of the water…"


THE  EARTH  WAS  COVERED  BY  WATER;  GOD  BROUGHT  FORTH  THE  LAND;  THERE  WAS  A  DIVIDING  OF  LAND  AND  SEAS;  NO  NEED  TO  SPECULATE  HOW  IT  WAS  DONE…..  IT  SIMPLY  WAS  DONE  BY  THE  COMMAND  OF  GOD  -  Keith Hunt


About 2,000 years later,4 the water below the crust burst forth as "the fountains of the great deep" combined with the surface water, and, as Peter wrote, flooded and destroyed earth in a global cataclysm. The Greek word katakluzo, from which we get our word "cataclysm," is translated as "flooded" in II Peter 3:6. In describing Noah's flood, the Bible never uses the normal Greek or Hebrew words for flood. Noah's flood was much more; it was an unparalleled, global cataclysm—earth's defining geological event.


NO  IT  WAS  NOT!  NOAH'S  FLOOD  THOUGH  SPECTACULAR  AND  LARGE,  WAS  NOT  GLOBAL….. BROWN  AND  OTHERS  LIKE  HIM  JUST  DO  NOT  SEE  ALL  THE  QUESTIONS  AND  ANSWERS  AROUND  A  SUPPOSED  GLOBAL  FLOOD  AT  NOAH'S  TIME.  SEE  THE  STUDIES  "NOAH'S  FLOOD  WAS  NOT  UNIVERSAL"  -  Keith Hunt


The complex Hebrew word raqia is usually translated in modern times as "expanse" or "firmament." Pages 362-370 explain why raqia is sometimes identified with "heavens" but in other contexts refers to earth's preflood crust.


Rock Pillars. 


Pressure from the compressed subterranean water supported most of the crust's weight; pillars supported the rest. Every 12 hours, tidal effects, caused primarily by the Moon's gravity, lifted the subsurface water (and, therefore, the earth's crust), just as tides lift ocean surfaces today. At low tides, the crust settled. The pressure each pillar exerted on the chamber floor increased and decreased twice daily. These loose, or flexible, contacts could be described as "sockets." Smaller tides also occur in the solid earth. 


SOUNDS  LIKE  BROWN  WAS  THERE  WHEN  GOD  WAS  DOING  ALL  THIS…..  PURE  SPECULATION.  GOD  DID  IT  AND  THAT  SHOULD  BE  ENOUGH  -  Keith Hunt


The Bible says the earth was founded on pillars. Psalm 75:3b says, "It is I [God] Who have firmly set its [the earth's] pillars." 


WHAT  GOD  MEANT  BY  "PILLARS"  COULD  BE  UP  FOR  GRABS;  MAY  NOT  BE  AT  ALL  WHAT   BROWN  SAYS;  WHAT  GOD  MEANS  BY  PILLARS  IS  MAYBE  NOT  WHAT  WE  WANT  TO  MAKE  IT  -  Keith Hunt


In Job 38, God demonstrates His authority by giving Job the most difficult science examination of all time. In verses 4-6, God asks Job, "Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding, ... On what were its bases sunk?" This word, "bases," is translated in all 54 other places in the Bible as "pedestals" or "sockets" which held pillars.


AGAIN  WHAT  GOD  MEANS  BY  "PEDESTALS"  "SOCKETS"  -  MAY  NOT  BE  WHAT  WE  HUMANS  IMAGINE  -  Keith Hunt


Two verses later, in Job 38:8-11, God seems to speak of a confined sea of water that burst forth. Then a dark cloud of water vapor apparently enveloped the exploding sea. Or who enclosed the sea with doors, when, bursting forth, it went out from the womb, when I made a cloud its garment, and thick darkness its swaddling band, and I placed boundaries on it, and set a bolt and doors, and I said, "Thus far you shall come, but no farther; and here shall your proud waves stop."


JUST  POETIC  LANGUAGE  FOR  THE  SIMPLE  FACT  THAT GOD  SET  THE  SEAS  IN  PLACE;  THEY  HAD  BOUNDARIES.  WE  SHOULD  READ  NOTHING  MORE  INTO  IT  THAT  THIS  SIMPLE  FACT  -  GOD  SET  THE  LANDS  AND  THE  SEAS  -  Keith Hunt


Ancient extrabibhcal writings, although not having the authority of biblical passages, also describe this pillar structure within the subterranean water. As one example, the British Museum's The Book of the Cave of Treasures, dated at about A.D. 300-599, states:


And on the Third Day God commanded the waters that were below the firmament to be gathered together in one place, and the dry land to appear. And when the covering of water had been rolled up from the face of the earth, the earth showed itself to be in an unsettled and unstable state, that is to say, it was of a damp or moist and yielding nature. And the waters were gathered together into seas that were under the earth and within it, and upon it. And God made the earth from below, corridors and shafts, and channels for the passage of the waters;... Now, as for the earth, the lower part of it is like unto a thick sponge, for it resteth on the waters.5 [emphasis added]


WELL  I'M  SURE  THE  ANCIENTS  KNEW  THERE  WAS  WATERS  UNDER  THE  CRUST  OF  THE  EARTH  HERE  AND  THERE;  RIVERS  DISAPPEAR  UNDER  THE  EARTH;  THEN  RIVERS  COME  FROM  WITHIN  THE  EARTH;  IT  HAPPENS  LOCALLY  APPEARING  SMALL  AT  TIMES,  BUT  COMMON  SENSE  TELLS  YOU  THERE  IS  PROBABLY  HUGE  LAKES  OR  SEAS  HERE  AND  THERE  UNDER  THE  CRUST  OF  THE  EARTH.  SO  WHAT  ELSE  IS  NEW?  Keith Hunt


The Bible often speaks of "the foundations of the earth"? On Day 3, the earth's crust was literally established, or set (using pillars), on its foundation. Had this not happened, the crust would have continually tottered (or oscillated, like the surface of an earth-size water bed). Perhaps this is why the psalmist wrote, "He established the earth upon its foundations, so that it will not totter forever and ever" (Psalm 104:5). Only by understanding some basic physics and the role of subterranean water, will these matters— and the global flood—be clear.


MAYBE  SOME  MODERN  SCIENCE  CAN  HELP,  BUT  THE  FACT  IS  GOD  SET  THE  LANDS  AND  THE  SEAS;  ONLY  EARTHQUAKES  AND  ICE  CAPS,  SINCE  HAVE  CHANGED  PARTS  OF  THE  LAND  BOUNDARIES,  HERE  AND  THERE  -  Keith Hunt


"On the same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open" (Genesis 7:11) On one day, the crust ruptured and the flood began. Water from the fountains fell as rain. Subterranean water flowed with unimaginable force horizontally through the subterranean chambers and up through the globe-encircling rupture. Pillars were crushed into fragments by the increasing crustal loads they carried. Each pillar's collapse produced huge waves in the surface water and pressure pulses in the subterranean water. Rock fragments, accelerated into space by astounding energy sources in the fountains of the great deep, became meteoroids.6 Thus the pillars, or foundations of the world, collapsed. This may be what Psalm 18:15 refers to when it says, "Then the channels of water appeared, and the foundations of the world were laid bare"


SURE  THERE  WAS  WATER  FROM  BELOW  THE  CRUST  COMING  FORTH,  IN  THE  FLOOD  OF  NOAH,  BUT  TO  TRY  AND  PUT  THIS  ALL  IN  A  GLOBAL  CONTEXT,  DOES  NOT  FIT  WITH  OTHER  AND  ALL  QUESTIONS  AND  OBJECTIONS,  AND  COMMON  SENSE  LOGIC,  THAT  SURELY  DISPROVE  A  GLOBAL  FLOOD  IN  NOAH'S  DAY  -  Keith Hunt


Rupture Mechanism: Tidal Pumping. 


But why did the pressure in the subterranean water increase enough to rupture the crust? 


Tides. 


Each tidal cycle, driven by the Suns and Moon's gravity, stretched and compressed the pillars.7 This cyclic compression—tidal pumping—twice a day for about 2,000 years, heated and expanded the pillar's and subterranean water, steadily increasing the pressure in the chamber.


As temperatures rose throughout the chamber, the water became supercritical water and the pillars and the crust weakened. This caused more pillars to flow down from the hot ceiling, further increasing the subterranean water's pressure. About the time the flood began, failure of the first few pillars increased the load on the remaining pillars, so all pillars collapsed, much like a falling house of cards. Consequently, pressures within the chamber fluctuated wildly.


HUMMMM…. AGAIN  SOUNDS  LIKE  BROWN  WAS  THERE  WITH  GOD,  WHEN  THE  FLOOD  OF  NOAH'S  DAY  BEGAN  -  Keith Hunt


How hot might the high-pressure water have become? Question 5 on page 298 explains why some meteorites reached temperatures of at least 1,300°E Some minerals in other meteorites were even hotter,8 a fact that perplexes meteorite experts, because meteorites came from supercold outer space, where temperatures are almost absolute zero (-460°F). This heating was not due to impacts or falling through earth's atmosphere, because the heating occurred not just on meteorite surfaces, but throughout meteorites. Therefore, if meteorites came from pillars, as proposed on pages 295-313, then pillars and the subterranean water exceeded 1,300°F.


NOTE  "AS  PROPOSED"  -  BROWN  WAS  IN  FACT  NOT  THERE  WHEN  THIS  ALL  HAPPENED,  SO  IT'S  ALL  HUMAN  SPECULATION,  FOR  WHATEVER  TEACHING  YOU  WANT  TO  TEACH  -  Keith Hunt


Sinking Continents. 


Because the lighter (and higher) portions of the crust were supported entirely by subterranean water, primarily the continents and preflood mountains sank as the supercritical water escaped during the flood phase. Therefore, the flooded earth resulted as much from sinking continents as from rising water.


WHATTTTT!!!!  NOW  I'VE  HEARD  IT  ALL!!!!  THE  BIBLE  SAYS  NO  SUCH  THING!!!  PURELY  HUMAN  REASONING,  FROM  A  SCIENTIFIC  MIND  THAT  HAS  RUN-A-MUCK…..  I  GUESS  WE  CAN  SAY  ANYTHING  WHEN  YOU  HAVE  A  PhD  AND  PEOPLE  WILL  SWALLOW  IT.  TALK  ABOUT  TRYING  TO  PROVE  A  DOCTRINE  WITH  MAN  MADE  IDEAS,  THIS  TAKES  THE  CAKE  -  Keith Hunt


Genesis 7:20 says that the flood waters covered all preflood mountains by 15 cubits. Today, mountain heights vary by thousands of feet, so why did many, if not all, preflood mountains have about the same elevation? (Some commentators, adding words not in the Bible, say that "at least" 15 cubits of water were above all the earth's mountains. Others say that the text means the Ark, whose height was 30 cubits, must have been only half submerged and did not run into mountain peaks.) The explanation becomes clear if we recognize that: (a) today's



IN  THE  BOX


Something to Think About: "Fire in Waters"


So much heat was generated within the pillars that they would have glowed, as incandescent filaments in lamps do today. Even some burning may have occurred in the subterranean water. The sight within the otherwise pitch-black subterranean chamber would have been eerie: hot, glowing pillars (part of the raqid) surrounded by high-pressure, burning supercritical water. An apt description of this might be "fire in waters." One of the most famous and revered Hebrew scholars of all time, Rabbi Solomon Yitzchaki (A.D. 1040-1105) of France, proposed that the correct translation for Genesis 1:8a is "And God called the expanse fire in waters," instead of the normal "And God called the expanse heaven" The reason may surprise you. Before A.D. 700, written Hebrew contained only consonants. Vowel points were then inserted to standardize pronunciations. For example, the meaning of….   n th bgnng Gd crtd th hvns nd th rth….  may be clear, but the phrase is difficult to pronounce (and, therefore, to remember). If other vowels had been inserted in "hvns," the word would have a different meaning today. Rabbi Yitzchaki, in his eleventh century Rashi Commentary, pointed out that with different vowel points the original Hebrew word we now think of as meaning "heaven" in Genesis 1:8a would mean "fire in waters." While in Jerusalem on 28 June 1990, I met for two hours with Michael Klein, Dean of Hebrew Union College. My question was, "What did raqia (expanse) and shamayim (heaven) mean in Genesis 1:8a when Moses wrote Genesis?" To my surprise, he suggested Rabbi Yitzchaki's translation, which I had previously studied. Shamayim is a compound of the words fire (esh) and liquid water (mayim). After I briefly explained the hydroplate theory, Dean Kline said that raqia (as opposed to "raqia of the heavens") might well have been the earth's crust—appropriately called "fire in waters." You decide.


THE  KING  JAMES  SCHOLARS  ARE  CORRECT….. JEWISH  SCHOLARS  ARE  OFTEN  OFF  THE  WALL  AND  OUT  IN  LEFT  FIELD  AND  FROM  PLANET  PLUTO.  IT  IS  VERY  SIMPLE  TO  UNDERSTAND  AS  THE  KJV  TRANSLATORS  RENDERED  THE  HEBREW  OF  GENESIS  ONE  -  Keith Hunt


mountains were formed by completely different mechanisms than those on the preflood earth, and (b) the earth was founded on and spread out above liquid water (Psalms 24:2, 104:3, and 136:6). Here's why the flood waters covered the preflood mountains by 15 cubits:


On Day 3 of the creation week, the higher a continent rose out of the surface water, the more pressure it exerted on the subterranean water directly below. To demonstrate this buoyancy effect, support a large rock under water with one hand. Notice how the pressure on your hand increases as you slowly lift the rock out of the water. Therefore, as the land rose higher, it would have risen more slowly, giving preflood mountains similar heights.


OH  SO  NOW  BROWN  WANTS  TO  TELL  YOU  HOW  GOD  DID  THINGS…. WELL  OF  COURSE  HE  WAS  THERE  WITH  HIM,  SEEING  IT  ALL  [TONGUE  IN  CHEEK  SPEAKING]…..  GOD  CREATED  THE  LANDS  AND  THE  MOUNTAIN  RANGES  AS  HE  SAW  FIT,  IN  THE  WAY  HE  SAW  FIT,  AND  NONE  OF  IT  HAS  TO  AGREE  WITH  THE  MODERN  SCIENCE  OF  MEN  -  Keith Hunt


About 2,000 years later, as the flood waters rose and continents sank, this same buoyancy effect caused preflood mountains not yet covered by water to exert greater pressure on the water still under the crust. This reduced their height and lifted lower mountains, further equalizing mountain heights above the rising water—just as Genesis 7:20 states.


YA  ALL  MAN  MADE  IDEAS  TO  HOLD  TO  A  GLOBAL  NOAH'S  FLOOD;  I  MEAN  THESE  GUYS  WILL  DO  ANYTHING  AND  EVERYTHING  TO  STICK  TO  A  UNIVERSAL  NOAH'S  FLOOD  TEACHING  -  Keith Hunt


As the first days and weeks of the flood passed, pillars were increasingly crushed, and more and more of the crust rested on the subterranean chamber floor, slowing the water's escape. The vertical walls on each side of the rupture were almost 10 miles high. Because the rock's pressure in the bottom half of each wall exceeded its crushing strength, the unsupported, unconfined walls continually crumbled—for 150 days (Genesis 7:24). During that time, the high-velocity fountains of the great deep removed that rubble, widening the rupture hundreds of miles.


WOW,  BROWN  JUST  HAD  TO  BE  THERE….. I  MEAN  HE  TALKS  LIKE  HE  KNOWS  EXACTLY  HOW  IT  ALL  HAPPENED;  GUESS  WHEN  YOU  HAVE  A  PhD  YOU  GOT  TO  SHOW  OTHERS  YOU'VE  FIGURED  IT  ALL  OUT…. EXACTLY  HOW  GOD  DID  IT;  YEP  HE  MUST  BE   WAY  OLDER  THAN  HE  LOOKS,  AS  HE  SAW  GOD  DO  ALL  THIS  AS  HE  DESCRIBES  -  Keith Hunt


Mass deep in the mantle shifted slightly toward these relatively unloaded portions of the chamber floor. Suddenly, the chamber floor buckled upward beneath the widened rupture, first forming the Mid-Atlantic portion of the Mid-Oceanic Ridge. The crust slid downhill on lubricating water, away from the rising Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Sliding continental plates—hydroplates—crashed and compressed in that "compression event"


YEP  HE  SAW  IT  ALL,  AND  HE'S  TELLING  US  -  Keith Hunt


Weaker portions of the hydroplates crushed, thickened, and buckled. In doing so, the new, postflood continents rose out of the flood waters, allowing water to drain into newly opened—and temporarily very deep—ocean basins. Buckled mountains also formed, as shown in Figure 49 on page 112. For each cubic mile of land that rose out of the flood waters, one cubic mile of flood water could drain. (Note: Today, the volume of all land above sea level is only one-tenth of the volume of all water on earth.) Other dramatic consequences in the Pacific, including formation of gigantic ocean trenches, are discussed on pages 143-167.

Sliding rock-on-rock contacts quickly became molten rock-water mixtures. This is why magma contains a surprising amount of dissolved water, why a thin saltwater layer appears to be under all continents at the depth predicted by the hydroplate theory,9 and why a thick, water-laden layer appears to be under the Tibetan Plateau.10
