There has never been a time when the whole earth was completely covered by water in at least the past 20,000,000 years....possibly as far back as 2.5 billion years.

How have you been doing Word? I ran into Chilli J on another forum we occassionally cross paths in, but other than that, I have left the debate here and there to him, you and the others of those better than myself to carry on. I have missed the exchange of ideas and the practice in arguing though. And the humor.
Glad you're back.

I wonder how they would know this if no human existed yet? No pun intended, just a thought.

Sure, but for how long? There is no guaranteed accuracy in this observation.

I am guessing by this question that you have done no research into scientific matters at all. Considering you ask for only one source, and you expect the list of sources to be able to fit into a reply on here .... you need to learn how to learn.

No there is no such evidence, unless you have something that everyone missed.
There is a ton of evidence.

Yes, scientists believe more in evolution, but they found the ark and it estimated the exact length of Noah's ark.

Really I'm not lying

No you aren't lying, you're just gullible. They were lying, the people claiming to have found it. You should be a little more ready to question authority instead of just buying what they hand you. So far no one has presented any evidence supporting your religion ... shall you be the first ... ever?

Kitten, the Ark is at the bottom of Loch Ness. No one can get close enough to take a photo or gather other evidence, because it is being guarded by a pesky aquatic dinosaur.

It is the unfortunate luck that, while many have seen the Ark and other miraculous things, no one has had the forethought to gather evidence. Perhaps, they should send some smarter creationist out on these explorations.
