Apparently those at the creation museum disagree with you on the entire earth being covered during the Noah flood.<quoted text>
For the third time the Bible doesnt list a date of Noahs flood. Genealogy is listed.
Despite what you believe is impossible. The entire Earth must have been covered up in water at one time because there are marine fossils on mountain tops. Im not claiming that was from Noahs flood. Im just saying water covered the earth at one time or most of it.
Even at the top of the Grand Canyons South Rim is evidence of marine fossils.
I have stated many times that Noahs flood was massive and encompassed thousands of square miles. We see floods like that even today in the United States. Did it cover the entire global earth? Probably not but it did cover the earth where people lived. So the Earth as they knew it flooded.
Now why would you try to make us believe that a flood could not happen in Noahs day when floods happen today in our time?

Many Christians today think the Flood of Noahs time was only a local flood, confined to somewhere around Mesopotamia. This idea comes not from Scripture, but from the notion of billions of years of Earth history.
But look at the problems this concept involves:
If the Flood was local, why did Noah have to build an Ark? He could have walked to the other side of the mountains and missed it.
If the Flood was local, why did God send the animals to the Ark so they would escape death? There would have been other animals to reproduce that kind if these particular ones had died.
If the Flood was local, why was the Ark big enough to hold all kinds of land vertebrate animals that have ever existed? If only Mesopotamian animals were aboard, the Ark could have been much smaller.1
If the Flood was local, why would birds have been sent on board? These could simply have winged across to a nearby mountain range.
If the Flood was local, how could the waters rise to 15 cubits (8 meters) above the mountains (Genesis 7:20)? Water seeks its own level. It couldnt rise to cover the local mountains while leaving the rest of the world untouched.2
If the Flood was local, people who did not happen to be living in the vicinity would not be affected by it. They would have escaped Gods judgment on sin.3 If this happened, what did Christ mean when He likened the coming judgment of all men to the judgment of all men (Matthew 24:3739) in the days of Noah? A partial judgment in Noahs day means a partial judgment to come.
If the Flood was local, God would have repeatedly broken His promise never to send such a flood again.
