If Noah experienced a flood that covered the entire world including every mountain, like the Rockies and Mont?

Blanc, the water would have been 4-5 miles deep everywhere, everywhere......uhhhh...where did it all go?

    you bring up a valid point... anyone with a calculator can figure out that in order to cover the earth with water to the top of mount everest, there would have to be something on the order of 4 times the volume of water on the planet than we currently have (in all forms: vapor (gas), liquid, and solid).

    this is a question fundamentalists have been unable to answer except by chanting "... and then a MIRACLE happened!..."

    If the land mass of earth was flattened out, squashing the mountains into the ocean trenches, then the surface of the earth would be covered in water to a depth of over a mile !

    So the water went into the oceans.

    Noone is suggesting that the flood waters were as high as the current mountains. There has been much raising and lowering of land. Everyone agrees on that. Just not on the timescale. It happened at the end of the Flood, about 4500 years ago. It is described in Psalm 104.

    That is why fossils of marine creatures are found at the top of mountains.

    Check out some of the articles here, which provide much more details.

    You know you can pick seashells out of the rocks in the Rocky Mountains, right?

    Because the Rocky Mountains were not always mountains.

    At one point they were sea floor.

    The planet would have wobbled and centrifugal force would have put a lot of that water into space along with Noah and his ark

    A flood wouldn't have to be anywhere near that deep to cover the known world in the time of Genesis.

    It's still around, not a hard concept. It's in lakes, streams, underground, all kinds of places.

    obviously, it evaporated.

    where do you think clouds come from?
