Seriously. I used to be a Christian myself, but once I started really applying critical thinking to these claims I had been accepting, I saw they were BS. What I don't get are people who are just determined to go through life with blinkers on. I mean, I get there are many benefits to religion, from psychological to social, but isn't honesty and truth more important? I think so anyway.

1.086981012 km3(Is this the current water at see level?)
1.086981012 km3(Only a bit more, not too off the range if it is being compared to the previous.
If the original number is current level of water, what is the number of it? And how do the calculations work? And the earth isn't trully round. It is made of small tiny bumps put together to make the earth look round, so pi wouldn't work. And what about the water that is in our bodies that used to be in the sea? And the water in the sewers, springs and clouds?
No, the Earth is not a perfect sphere, but for the purposes of calculation it's fine to use pi for this. As for water in our bodies, springs, whatever, there is not nearly enough water from any source you could name that in sum could cover the Earth above the highest mountains. Sorry, it's just a story. And a borrowed one at that.

you say that for several reasons, one being you have NO true concept of what RIGHTEOUS and HOLY mean.
the flood happened not because God's design was flawed but because MAN CHOSE to ignor it, dishoner it, and go outside that perfect design to seek that which was wrong, sinful, abomination.
the flood happened because man CHOSE to become wicked in his/her ways. Rejecting God.
God being RIGHTEOUS and HOLY can not allow sin to exist.
when things reach the boiling point, God makes it right.
Wow, where to begin? First off, obviously, if God made humans flawed, then God is necessarily flawed as well. Secondly, didn't God know the future? Was God surprised when everything supposedly went wrong pre-flood? If God is omniscient, then the flood was entirely unnecessary. Furthermore, post-flood things are still not to God's liking. Again, did God not see this coming? So the ham-handed fix didn't even work. Your God is a clueless bumbler, at least going by what the Bible says about it.

As for God not allowing sin to exist, well guess what? According to the Bible, it does! So I guess that's not true either, is it? So according to you and the Bible, God is neither omniscient, nor omnipotent.

I was talking about the difference between English English & American English.

Brits have Air Marshals.
Americans have Generals.

This is not a difficult concept.

But the calculations of it being a pi compared with the cubic miss measures and some parts of the earth being potentially lower, evening it out making some water at least able to fully cover it could make up for it all. And why not the water in the sewers and so on not being enough? There are many clouds in the sky.

a man grows a crop of tomato's.
the earth and the seed were perfect in yielding a perfect tomato.
the man picks the tomato's letting some hit the ground, bruising them. He places them in a bucket and instead of using them right away to produce a perfect meal, he lets them sit to long and they rot.
does the man eat the rotted tomato? of course not, he throws it away.
when man's heart is 'bruised' God can elimate the bruse and save the man.
but if the mans heart is 'rotten' then God elimates it.
The problem with your parable is that you are comparing humans to God. Humans are neither omniscient nor omnipotent, yet you claim God is both. God should therefore know in advance whether a tomato or a human heart are or will become rotten or not.

Woah, hey hey hey.

I'm not angry at a lack of progress, I'm confused by it.
