Where did Noah's water go?
The surface of planet earth measures 510,072,000 square kilometers. The tallest mountain, Everest, is 8.848 kilometers high. If you discount curvature which will actually increase the volume, the amount of water required to cover the planet so that Everest is under water is 4,513,117,056 cubic kilometres. Where did it go? And it didn't go into ice at the poles. Not even close. @matt.. yes, the crest of Mt. Everest is marine limestone. But, that marine limestone was at the bottom of the sea millions and millions of years ago. Tectonic pressure caused by the collision of the Indian plate and the Asian plate caused the upthrust called he Himalayas. Obviously, fundies reject evolution AND geology.

You should start at the basics. Where did it comes from? Also I would like the Christians to keep in mind that creating matter out of thin air (no pun intended) would rip the universe apart.

God pulled a big plug and it drained into the Earth's core. Also it magically became magma.

Its because it didn't actually happen. Every bit of that story falls apart when you actually look at logically. Even if one could answer that, about the water. How did 8 people take care of tens of thousands of animals on a boat built by someone with no knowledge of shipbuilding, 5000 years ago for 150 days.

They are still on Earth in oceans, subterranean aqifers, ice-caps, the poles, glaciers, and clouds. Mount Everest was formed shortly after the Flood. Marine fossils on its summit confirm that.

If the great flood ever happened at all, not way did it cover more than just a small part of the earth. How did all the worlds animals get into a vessel no bigger than four football fields. And why did the sea water not kill of the plant life and wreck the food chain. There is really no logical way it happened.

According to some creationist, they claim the water ejected from the crust of the earth, turn into ice and landed on the moon. No, seriously they said that.

It went into the ark...after all it was big enough to hold every animal on the planet as well as all their food.
Answered By: QWS - 8/3/2011
Yawn. The mountains were uplifted during and after the flood, so your estimate of the amount of water is grossly too large. The flood narrative of Noah is improbable, but it is not impossible. The current oceans at their current depths provide plenty of space for the flood waters that covered the earth.

noah's water didnt go anywhere because there was no noah's flood. that is nothing but hebrew mythology. There was a Flood though and it lasted 10,000 years. The water was went to the north and south poles where it is ice.
