I'll admit my numbers were off. A column of water 30,000 feet in depth would result in almost 1,000 atmospheres of pressure, not 2,000. As for the rest, it does not require self-aggrandizement to deduce cause and effect.<quoted text>
If you'll recall, I'm just following your lead,
Do you not believe yourself?
Where are your numbers, KAB? On what do you base a claim that mountains suddenly rose by tens of thousands of feet? What mechanism(s) do you propose for hundreds of millions of cubic miles of water to upwell and precipitate over the entire planet?
On what evidence or observation do you base the argument that mountains were lower pre-flood and that "post-flood increased land peak elevations above sea level of many thousands of feet, and much greater average ocean depths?" Were apologists making any such claims before the heights of mountains were known?
