    “2 tons per square inch,” sufficient to fossilize fauna and flora quickly.—See The Biblical Flood and the Ice Epoch, by D. Patten, 1966, p. 62.

    What evidence proves that there truly was a global deluge?

    Other possible evidence of a drastic change: Remains of mammoths and rhinoceroses have been found in different parts of the earth. Some of these were found in Siberian cliffs; others were preserved in Siberian and Alaskan ice. (PICTURE, Vol. 1, p. 328) In fact, some were found with food undigested in their stomachs or still unchewed in their teeth, indicating that they died suddenly. It is estimated, from the trade in ivory tusks, that bones of tens of thousands of such mammoths have been found. The fossil remains of many other animals, such as lions, tigers, bears, and elk, have been found in common strata, which may indicate that all of these were destroyed simultaneously. Some have pointed to such finds as definite physical proof of a rapid change in climate and sudden destruction caused by a universal flood. Others, however, favor explanations for the death of these animals that do not involve an earth-wide catastrophe. Proof that the Flood occurred is not dependent on such fossils and frozen animal remains.

    Deluge……..
    Effect on the Earth. With the Deluge great changes came, for example, the life span of humans dropped very rapidly. Some have suggested that prior to the Flood the waters above the expanse shielded out some of the harmful radiation and that, with the waters gone, cosmic radiation genetically harmful to man increased. However, the Bible is silent on the matter. Incidentally, any change in radiation would have altered the rate of formation of radioactive carbon-14 to such an extent as to invalidate all radiocarbon dates prior to the Flood.

    With the sudden opening of the ‘springs of the watery deep’ and “the floodgates of the heavens,” untold billions of tons of water deluged the earth. (Ge 7:11) This may have caused tremendous changes in earth’s surface. The earth’s crust, which is relatively thin and varied in thickness, is stretched over a rather plastic mass thousands of kilometers in diameter. Hence, under the added weight of the water, there was likely a great shifting in the crust. In time new mountains evidently were thrust upward, old mountains rose to new heights, shallow sea basins were deepened, and new shorelines were established, with the result that now about 70 percent of the surface is covered with water. This shifting in the earth’s crust may account for many geologic phenomena, such as the raising of old coastlines to new heights. It has been estimated by some that water pressures alone were equal to “2 tons per square inch,” sufficient to fo

    There is nothing that survives the death of the body. That is why our only hope is in a resurrection. read (John 5:28,29) (Ecclesiastes 9:5) and (Psalms 146:4)

    @LCDR…..”JERUSALEM IS THE ETERNAL CITY WITH GOD’S NAME ON IT, not Rome.”

    What is God’s NAME ?

    Maybe the Pope should focus more on God’s Kingdom, isn’t that what Jesus said to pray for?
    Stay away from politics and worldly affairs. Jesus also said that his followers would be no part of the world. (John 17:16)

    @ Servant-Of……..Palestine = (name of a Roman province) from Heb. Palesheth “Philistia,land of the Philistines”
    Revived as a political territorial name in 1920.
    Where are the Philistines today?

    Mapache………..”breeding with monsters or giants?
    Genesis 6:3 the sons of the true God began to notice that the daughters of men were beautiful. So they began taking as wives all whom they chose.
    Genesis 6:4 The Nephilim………………the sons of the true God continued to have relations with the daughters of men, and these bore sons to them………………………
    The offspring were the giants or the mighty ones of old, the men of fame. (Nephilim)
    The sons of the true God were disobedient angels or demons if you wish. That is why God destroyed the earth with a flood.
    Genesis 6:11 But the earth had become ruined in the sight of the true God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 Yes God looked upon the earth, and it was ruined; all flesh had ruined its way on the earth.

    God created man in his own image; does not mean physical but his attributes like power, justice, wisdom, and love. God is a spirit.

    Rev 5:9,10…….they (144,000) are to rule over the earth with Christ for 1,000 years.
    Rev. 7:4 & 14: 3,4 & 20:4,6
    The 144,000 who were bought from the earth will rule as kings and priest.

    If they are going to rule over the earth then it would make sense that there will be those on the earth to rule over.

    Psalms 37:29 …….the earth……..they will live forever on it.

    @gemmeri………..”What is truth & what is not. The fact is it does not matter what happened 2000 years ago.

    John 17:17 Jesus says: “Sanctify them by means of the truth; your word is truth.”

    Verum……..”Either way, if Jesus comes before or after, everyone is going to die”

    Matthew 24:22……In fact, unless those days were cut short, no flesh would be saved; but on account of the chosen ones those days will be cut short.

    It seems to be saying that some people will not die, but will be saved.
    Psalms 37:29 the righteous will possess the earth. And they will live forever on it. (saved)
