    Where did the water causing the global Flood come from?

    During the second creative period, or day, when the earth’s atmospheric expanse was formed, there were waters beneath the expanse and waters above the expanse. Genesis 1:6, 7

    The waters beneath were those already on earth. The waters above were huge quantities of moisture suspended high above the earth, forming a vast watery deep.

    These waters fell upon the earth in Noah’s day.

    In the 600th year of Noah's life, in the second month, the 17th day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.   Genesis 7:11

    (In other words, from below and from above)

    All of a sudden water began to fall. It poured down from the sky as when you pour water from a bucket. Noah had been right! But it was too late now for anybody else to get into the ark. Soon all the low ground was covered. The water became like big rivers.

    or 40 days and 40 nights the water poured out of the sky.

      It came from underground.

      Gen 7:11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the windows of the heavens were opened.

    God poofed it into existence with his magic.  But he forgot he could also have just poofed all the bad people dead and not make a flood at all.

    There is no evidence that remotely suggests a global flood. Currently there is not enough water or hydrogen to make enough water to come close to being able to flood the earth to the level described by the Bible.  This is before we start to look at biological or genetic evidence, not to mention the engineering or logistical problems with the myth. (Hint, a wood boat of that size would not have survived for any length of time on calm water much less the conditions associated with a global flood and the genetics simply do no support anything remotely close to the flood story.)

    Edit:

    Just to be clear, the flood would have left undeniable, unmistakable evidence on a world wide basis, and this evidence or anything remotely resembling it does not exits in any form.  Not only that, but we do not see any parallel to it in genetics i.e we do not see any reason to think that clean animals are more diverse than unclean animals.  Then we can point out that any flood that lasted nearly a year (given the Bible's timeline) would have killed most, if not all plant life as well as nearly all marine life, there simply would not have been olive trees or anything else when the water receded -- all the herbivores from the ark would have starved providing that the carnivores didn't eat them first.

     

    It is simply a myth.

    A global flood did NOT happen.  It was most likely a local flood and the story got expanded.

      Actually the flood took place only in the region of the then known world.(Northern Africa) where Noah and his descendants settled after the flood

    If you can't find it, then the event did not happen.

    Must have come from magic, because there is nowhere near enough water in our atmosphere for such a global flood. Nor even remotely enough. The story of the global flood is a lie.
