    Kent is either a world-class moron, or an atheist trolling.............

      Why limit the question to atheists? Do not the members of all of the world's many religions get a say?

    If the earth was a perfect sphere ... Yes.

    Ongoing plate tectonics makes that highly unlikely.

    Not the present Earth.

    If one was to bulldoze the Earth to a perfect sphere, no mountain, no valley, then very little water would be required to cover it since there would not be any need for any depth.

    Some other answer says there is enough water in the Earth to cover it. That is just a figure. If one was to take that water from where it is now, then wherever that water was would need to shirk and collapse from the now gone bulk, and that would NOT be the current Earth.

    Bottom line is that Hovind is an idiot and will misunderstand anything so that it somehow "proves" his position.

    Apparently, there is.

    "It is estimated an additional 1.5 to eleven times the amount of water in the oceans is contained in the Earth's interior,[15] and some scientists have hypothesized that the water in the mantle is part of a "whole-Earth water cycle".[16] The water in the mantle is dissolved in various minerals near the transition zone between Earth's upper and lower mantle."

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_distribution_o...

    But, there is no mechanism that could have sent that water from Earth's surface into the mantle in the timeframe described in the Genesis flood account. Creationists will claim that pressure would explain it, but in fact, there is nothing mysterious about pressure. Pressures of hundreds of thousands of PSI, far more pressure than enough water to cover Mt. Everest would produce, have been produced and studied in laboratories. Enough pressure to make diamonds would keep surface water out, not suck it in.

    WTF are you blabbing about? The oceans on their own contain ample water to cover all the Earth's surface. A child of 10 would realise this.

      You mean if it was a perfect sphere? But it isn't.

    How many times are you going to ask this?

    Then award BA to some idiotic creationist?

    --------------

    On the off chance you actually care about the answer:

    With the surface of the planet as irregular as it is, and has been for billions of years, no. There is not enough liquid water on earth to completely cover its surface.

    If that solid surface were somehow completely smoothed out, the liquid water on it would cover it evenly to a depth of a couple thousand feet.

    However, there is ample evidence that the last time that was true was more than 4 billion years ago. It was ABSOLUTELY not the case at any time remotely within human history.

    Not as the earth is, but if you could dig up the mountains and dump it in the deepest oceans, I think there is enough water. It might only be 2 inches deep, but the earth would be covered.

    There would have been more water back then, before the firmament opened.
