The first thing you need to do is to look at this new photo of the earth by NASA: Blue Marble. Only then will you be able to appreciate what we’re being told today by the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) — the granddaddy of all creationist outfits — the fountainhead of young-earth creationist wisdom.
Have you looked at the NASA photo? Okay, but it’s likely that because of the limitations of your materialistic worldview you only saw a startlingly beautiful picture of our world. But the creation scientists of ICR see more deeply than that, as they explain in NASA Earth Image Helps Answer Flood Question. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
This image can help answer a question that creationists often hear: If the entire earth really was covered during the Flood of Noah’s day, then where did all that water go?
We know you’re interested. Don’t deny it. Now pay careful attention to what ICR has to say, as it just might save you from an eternity in the Lake of Fire:
According to the Bible, the water retreated from the surface of the earth, apparently running off the continents into newly created ocean basins. Geophysicist John Baumgardner developed a detailed, feasible model called Catastrophic Plate Tectonics of how the earth’s mantle and crust might have shifted and interacted during the Flood year. According to this model, the configuration of today’s ocean floors formed during the latter months of the Flood year.
You never thought of that before, did you? Let’s read on:
So, what happened to all the water from Noah’s Flood? It went into the oceans. As extraordinary images of the earth from space show, water covers the majority of the blue planet. In fact, from at least one vantage point near the center of the Pacific Ocean, virtually no land is visible — just ocean!
There’s your answer — the Flood waters went into the newly-formed oceans! Here’s their concluding paragraph:
NASA’s new Blue Marble image, like previous ones, shows that the earth’s watery surface — which is unique among all known planets — has all the fitting hallmarks of Noah’s Flood: mountains made of catastrophically deposited mudrocks, valleys from which mudrock was catastrophically removed, and vast, blue reservoirs that hold the waters that were responsible for the destruction of the planet’s primordial surface.
So there you are, dear reader. Now you have proof — from NASA! The Flood waters receded into the oceans. It’s all so obvious!
