Amos 9:6<quoted text>
There are a number of Scripture passages that identify the flood waters with the present-day seas...[snipped]
"American King James Version
It is he that builds his stories in the heaven, and has founded his troop in the earth; he that calls for the waters of the sea, and pours them out on the face of the earth: The LORD is his name."
Job 38:1-11 New International Version
1 Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. He said:
2 Who is this that obscures my plans with words without knowledge?
3 Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me.
4 Where were you when I laid the earths foundation? Tell me, if you understand.
5 Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it?
6 On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone
7 while the morning stars sang together and all the angels[a] shouted for joy?
8 Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb,
9 when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness,
10 when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place
11 when I said,This far you may come and no farther; here is where your proud waves halt?"
5 He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved.
6 You covered it with the watery depths as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains.
7 But at your rebuke the waters fled, at the sound of your thunder they took to flight;
8 they flowed over the mountains, they went down into the valleys, to the place you assigned for them.
9 You set a boundary they cannot cross; never again will they cover the earth."
(a) You have in the above biblical texts, VERY ambiguous prose, that does NOT suggest that 'mountains rose' or 'ocean floors dropped'. In fact, EVERYTHING that a Supreme Being may have left us to investigate tells us that nothing of the sort EVER took place.
Geology, Paleontology, Geneology, Anthropology and possibly other sciences seperately tells us that there has NEVER been a world-wide flood in the past several million years.
(b) The Bible is rife with blind ascertations with NO evidence whatsoever. Your supplied verses (above) are not "evidence", but re-telling of earlier stories and without merit.
