Massive 'ocean' Discovered Towards Earth's Core

Discussion in 'General Discussions' started by Scripture Bird, Jul 25, 2014.

  1. Now the question is can it be tapped safely without causing major issues to the environment. Or astronomical costs.
     
  2. Scientists and other people who question the bible about the flood story often ask, "If that really happened, where did all the water go?" Well, this could be the answer......

  3. The water was trapped in this layer long before the event of the Biblical flood.

    Which was a localised event. The use of the word world in Hebrew in this context was a region, not the whole planet.
     
  4. Haven't there been regional floods since then?
     
  5. All over the world there has been regional floods.

    There is no evidence of the world being mostly covered with water for thousands of millions of years. In fact the rocks that the article speak of where formed over 4000 million years ago.

  6. Genesis 9:11 says that God would never send a flood to destroy the earth again. If this were a regional flood, and there have been regional floods since, then God didn't keep His word??
     
  7. He said he'd never send a flood like that to that region again.

    Did he? Not that any record shows.

    That region that Noah lived in has never seen a flood that lasted 300 days since. Small ones, but nothing on that scale.

    So God kept his word.
     
  8. When Noah was 600 years old, on the seventeenth day of the second month, all the underground waters erupted from the earth, and the rain fell in mighty torrents from the sky. (‭Genesis‬ ‭7‬:‭11‬ NLT)
    We knew the water was there all along.
     
  9. I am sorry my brother, but I have to disagree with you on the flood being a "local event".

    The Bible has God say to Noah: Gen. 9:11.............
    "Thus I establish My covenant with you: Never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood; never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth."

    V:15 "and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.”

    Did you notice it says to destroy the earth, not a certain area.

    Then have you considered that the purpose of the Flood was to judge the entire world of its sin that overtook people’s lives.
    The population, both animal and man were destroyed, which would require a universal Flood to accomplish this. Gen. 6:5-7 and 6:11-13 all physical life was destroyed (v. 22). Gen. 7:19 and 7:22.

  10. You are absolutely correct.
     
  11. Absolutely. We had one right here in Central Fl. in 2004 during Hurricane Frances!!!

    I drove hy. #92 from Deland to Daytona Beach in two feet of water on the highway all the way.
     
  12. It's not worth tapping... it holds double the salt content of that of the oceans.

  13. The word is NOT earth, It is Erets. Earth is a anglo saxon word.

    Erets read in context of the whole of scripture and knowledge becomes:

    land

    1. country, territory

    2. district, region

    3. tribal territory

    4. piece of ground

    5. land of Canaan, Israel

    We know it did not destroy all the globe, because it would have mighty difficult to have the Golden Age of Ur during the same time period or the fourth dynasty of Egypt. All of which flourished with no flood event.

    So we have to look at the word and then take it in context.
     
  14. Well then let it be. We don't need more salt at present.
     
  15. He certainly does scripture bird. There are many who struggle with the concept that God covered the entire earth with water in a flood but it's entirely possible given what we know scientifically today along with the countless examples of world wide flood. In Noah's days, the world was a very different place, there was a water content on the sky and under the earth's plates. When God allowed the flood there was more than enough water to cover the whole earth, when the water came up from the plates, the earth began to move down the way taking up the space from where the waters moved thus covering the whole earth with water. When the flood reached it's peak the water began to recede under the plates and give us the ocean geography we have today along with the North and South Poles containing much of the fresh water on the planet.

    I still find it amazing that scientists claim that the planet Mars had a surface crafted by water yet there's no water there and yet 2/3 of our planet is covered with water and the scientists can't believe that water formed our surface? Crazy....

  16. I'm not saying that there is NOT enough water.

    I am saying that when the event occurred chronologically, a world wide flood would have stopped history that we have written proof of in other areas around the world.

    Ur would have been drown and there would be no Golden Age and the fourth dynasty in Egypt would never have existed. Thus killing off the line that led to the Pharaoh that enslaved the Jews. Thereby stopping Passover, thereby making Jesus a lamb brought to slaughter on Passover moot.

    Cascade effect that stamps out even biblical history.

    I won't even go into Asian history that was also totally unaffected.

    So what do we do?

    We go back to The Word and look at the word in Hebrew. We use context and then use our mind.

    There was a flood.
    A regional event.
    It lasted long enough to kill off the people in that region that Noah knew.
    Leaving his family as the only survivors.

    It all goes back to context.
     
  17. Isn't it though? There's so much happening in the world today where a people who just 30 years ago knew God, would not question scripture, are now seemingly falling away at a rapid pace. And in all facets of society it seems.

    They'd rather look to Mars and speculate than consider their earthly home is what it is and God is responsible. Amazing!

    land:
    earth
    earth
    whole earth (as opposed to a part)
    earth (as opposed to heaven)
    earth (inhabitants)

    land :
    country, territory
    district, region
    tribal territory
    piece of ground
    land of Canaan, Israel
    inhabitants of land
    Sheol, land without return, (under) world
    city (-state)
    ground, surface of the earth
    ground
    soil


    That makes it a little different when the whole meaning is presented.

    Genesis 7:1....... (ESV)
    1. Then the Lord said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you are righteous before me in this generation.
    "
     
  19. Hello scripture Bird and sorry for the late reply. Yes they say we all came from Mars and yet they call us strange! It's a good point your making though, years ago many wouldn't question God or scripture yet today many are, even Christians, I believe that warrants a bit more examination! God bless you...
