My understanding is that the flood was global, covering all land in 40 days, taking most of a year to recede, and causing substantial change in Earth's surface contours (i.e. much more pronounced post-flood variations).

Why do you believe that? There is not one scrap of evidence to support that contention.

The bible itself does not even suggest the earths contours were changed. This is just stuff made up to rationalize a belief system. Even as uneducated as you are surely you can see that.

I realize that. You don't do sufficient questioning.

And you do, much to your embarrassment.

You have brought the beatings on yourself. There is no one else to blame except yourself.

Remember, you are the one who has, at best, a 10% response rate to questions.

You are the one avoiding and dodging the questions you do "answer".


The fact remains you CAN'T answer most questions put to you. You have given over your life to an Anti-Christian cult and must follow their cattle prods, wherever they push you.

You have no original thoughts because they took your ability to think for yourself away long ago.

Remember, it is you who have been unable to defend your cult as somehow being the chosen and correct true followers Jesus.

Maybe you can sign up and get some more advanced brainwashing and come back and be able to answer 20% of the questions posed to you.

You live in denial that you have squandered your life to be a puppet.

Have I ever disputed their modern history? Do they presently show a knowledge of floods?

Another dodge (lie).

Again, you are completely compulsive, knee-jerk, liar.

If you can't answer the question then just don't answer.

That is what you do when you can't answer my question. You just cower.

Break the cycle of lying! Yes, it will be hard.

I do not. However and as usual, you cherry pick what you want out of any given topic to support your loony claims and ignore anything that will expose your foolishness.
Earlier, you disputed the value of Egyptian history. Now, their history is of value. Which is it? Just the parts you like?

He indicated a global flood would wipe out evidence of all earlier floods, a dataless and you seem to realize, incorrect assertion.

Another compulsive lie. That was NOT what he said.

You just cannot stop. I realize that you are a chronic liar who no longer has any credibility. Everyone sees through your game except you. Not uncommon, but always sad.

No, I don't wish for you or your ilk to be out indoctrinating the simpletons.

What you do is no less than evil. It is calculated by people above you that you be well trained to manipulate other and decrease your own cognitive dissonance while doing so. It is a win-win situation for the temple priests and their coffers, but a lose-lose for everyone else.

Why do JW's believe they need human help to understand the bible?

That is insufficient data. I asked for a comprehensive description. You defined neither the depth of the water accumulation nor its source(s). "Substantial change in Earth's contours" and "much more pronounced post-flood variations" are vague and could be subject to misinterpretation. Describe those "substantial changes in Earth's contours" and the "much more pronounced post-flood variations" to which you refer.

The funniest thing about this whole thread is the fact that people who claim evolution is not real clearly knows nothing about it. Its not "we all came from monkeys." Actually evolution exists today. For example, there are cases in which humans are being born without wisdom teeth and overall, they are smaller than previous generations. Adaptation to your environment is all evolution really is. You keep things you need, develop aspects that are most beneficial to your survival, and lose things that hinders it.
My favorite argument is "God created humans and the Earth therefore evolution is not real." Well if he is truly the all mighty then why is the scientific fact of evolution out of the realm of his power?
Just because you don't understand something doesn't mean you have to fear and deny it.
You could be onto something. It appears you don't understand evolution, yet you don't fear and deny it. Unfortunately, I do understand evolution but only enough to deny it, not fear it.

how do account for humans being around a lot longer than that?

How do you account for a flood while civilization went along uninterrupted?

As per typical, the facts are not your friends.

Another lie. You have to be constantly reminded of even the basics of evolution. The reality conflicts with your programming therefore you must reject it. You do so gleefully.

Oh, I win again.

You point to an event in history before the bible was written.

Now we have the word of god (which is often misused by incompetents).

The more relevant scripture is Matthew 7:15-23.

Jer 23:21-22
Deu 18:20-22
Micah 3:11
2 Pet 2:1-3

Pretty damning evidence against the JW's

Oh, and Isa 30:9-14.

CRACK! That one's outta here!

And, unlike KAB, I am not committed to lying so will admit my errors when I make them.
He will never do so.
It seems worthwhile that everyone have opportunity to be reminded of this along with my recently acknowledging an error I made. I do so love to contribute to your credibility.

As recently as 5,000 years ago, the Sahara—today a vast desert in northern Africa, spanning more than 3.5 million square miles—was a verdant landscape, with sprawling vegetation and numerous lakes. Ancient cave paintings in the region depict hippos in watering holes, and roving herds of elephants and giraffes—a vibrant contrast with today's barren, inhospitable terrain.

The Sahara's "green" era, known as the African Humid Period, likely lasted from 11,000 to 5,000 years ago, and is thought to have ended abruptly, with the region drying back into desert within a span of one to two centuries.

Now researchers at MIT, Columbia University and elsewhere have found that this abrupt climate change occurred nearly simultaneously across North Africa.

The team traced the region's wet and dry periods over the past 30,000 years by analyzing sediment samples off the coast of Africa. Such sediments are composed, in part, of dust blown from the continent over thousands of years: The more dust that accumulated in a given period, the drier the continent may have been.
