The Water Prevailed Upon The Earth One Hundred And Fifty Days

In creation, news insight on December 7, 2007 at 4:27 pm

LiveScience has reported an unusual finding in the Bahamas:

Divers also found fossilized leaves, twigs, flowers, fruits, seeds, pollen and spores.

Don’t miss the key-word there, divers.

Leaves, twigs, flowers, fruits, etc. were found by divers in a sinkhole in an underwater cavern called a blue hole. Here goes the theory: During the Ice Age, limestone caves existed in various parts of the world, when the ice melted and the waters rose they covered the roofs of these caves and eventually the weight of the water caused the roofs to collapse creating a sinkhole effect, which is called a blue hole.

I would propose this theory: A few thousand years ago, God wanted to wipe out every living thing from the face of the earth so He caused the rains to pound the earth for 40 days and 40 nights and the fountains of the great deep to open up and together the two sources covered the earth with water such that no dry land was found anywhere. Any formation without a roof sturdy enough to withstand the weight of the massive amounts of water collapsed and preserved whatever was inside the formation at the time. Read the account here.

These blue holes could have been here when God created the earth or possibly they were caused when God did something so dramatic to our planet that it is difficult to predict the ramifications it had on our terrestrial structures. I would even venture to say the effect it had on this earth probably would look very similar to the effect huge glaciers of ice covering the earth melting away over time and causing the water levels to raise drastically would have had. What’s my proof? Also from the article:

The bones, ranging in age from 1,000 to 4,200 years old, were very well preserved in the deep, oxygen-free saltwater layer of the sinkhole, which is free of the bacteria and fungi that typically munch on bones.

The Bible dates the flood sometime around 2300BC. Which would be right around 4,300 years ago…
