More assertions, but still no specific confirming data examples.
The continued existence of 3 incompatible Abrahamic religions, each split into a multitude of competing and mutually incompatible sects, is data enough for my assertion.

Your religions and sects of religions have no empirical grounds on which to develop a consensus.

In science, on the other hand "schisms" - disagreements - are corrected in the long run by new data.

A vertical shift of only 50 feet caused the 2004 tsunami. The shifts you propose are many orders of magnitude beyond that and would leave obvious and overwhelming physical evidence. What source states significant differences in mountain heights and oceanic depths pre-flood?

Tsunamis are destructive in their interaction with shorelines. Imagine Tsunamis with no land above water. Also, one source states that vertical shifts of 50 feet occur virtually instantaneously. The Himalayas are rather striking, don't you think?
So where is the friggin *DATA* for the 'no land above water' assertion? With your nonexistent 'stealth flood' data?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsunami
"Tsunamis have a small amplitude (wave height) offshore, and a very long wavelength (often hundreds of kilometres long, whereas normal ocean waves have a wavelength of only 30 or 40 metres),[22] which is why they generally pass unnoticed at sea, forming only a slight swell usually about 300 millimetres (12 in) above the normal sea surface. They grow in height when they reach shallower water, in a wave shoaling process described below. A tsunami can occur in any tidal state and even at low tide can still inundate coastal areas."
What's your point?

The only point KAB has is the dunce cap he is wearing.

Another lie. And you were having such a good day.

so sad.

We have no data on the size or type of tsunamis that would be generated in a make believe global flood.

If you can't account for the ACTUAL data (no flood, civilizations concurrently occurring,......... then you might as well be telling childrens stories at your local library.

The religion issue was long ago "corrected" by the Bible. You can read about it, in part at 2 Thessalonians 2:3-12 and Revelation chapter 18.

I just responded to the erroneous assertion that the global flood couldn't abide the tsunamis. In other words, if there was a global flood, tsunamis need not be a problem.

2 Thessalonians 2:3-12 is a nice description of the Watchtower cult.
