Here's my take on where the Flood waters went. If it sounds too far-fetched, no problem, it's just a hypothesis (or theory, or guess, or whatever it's called):

My take on this is that the waters, which predominantly came from within the earth, went back down. As it was raining on the surface, water was also coming from below, and the people were sandwiched between the two sources.

When the rains stopped, the waters began falling back down through the holes in the earth. Sort of like a giant bathtub with many plugs that had been pulled.

Now comes the interesting part, a sort of modified Boyle's Law.
pV = k, or pressure x volume = a constant

Originally Posted by Isaiah 5:14

Here's the entire verse:
Isaiah 5:14
Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.

Using Isaiah 5:14 to modify Boyle's Law gives us this:
pm = k, or pressure x mass = a constant
Since pressure (or more appropriately density) is defined as mass/volume, I conclude this:
(mass/volume) x mass = a constant, or
mass2/volume = a constant
To explain this using a simple example, let's say:
mass = 5
volume = 5
Then the constant is 5 --- (5 x 5 / 5 = 5).

However, double the mass without changing the constant, and what happens? The volume has to compensate for the change:
mass = 10
volume = ?
constant = 5
Thus 10 x 10 / ? = 5, and ? = 20.

This, then, is what Isaiah is basically saying:
As Hell acquires more mass, it enlarges to compensate for its temperature.
Now back to the Flood:

Everyone on earth died except for 8 people, and Hell "super-enlarged" to compensate for the large influx of souls, and the expanding diameter could have engulfed the water reservoirs.

Just a pet theory of mine --- submitted for "peer review".

p.s. The only problem I see with this, is that Christianity teaches that Hell is not a constant temperature, but is in fact, a tiered structure, being hotter in the lower levels.

[From an essay "Talking Points on World AIDS Day for Christian Parents", the rest of which is insane as well]

If we eliminated homosexual male sex and intravenous drug use, HIV would be reduced by at least three fourths in this country. Both are unnecessary, chosen behaviors. Schools need to make sure this point is absolutely clear in the minds of every student in health education.
[...]
Attacking AIDS through wide distribution of condoms is a complete failure. Do we want to keep promoting sex, or do we want to save lives? Or- do some influential people have financial ties to the condom and contraceptive manufacturers? Is this an example of corruption and big business at work in exploiting poor Third World people?
[...]
If homosexual sex is a leading cause of HIV in the U.S., doesn't it make sense to teach people to not engage in these acts? Perhaps "gay" social establishments should close until the HIV rates are severely reduced. And no students should be encouraged to enter homosexuality through "gay" clubs or tolerance lessons.

Earlier today I recieved a most disturbing telephone call from my great grandson. He recalled to me the start of his public summer school courses. He told me of his science class teaching about evolution and natural selection. Like any good Christian, I was uphauled! How dare they instill the lunatic notions from a man who has been under growing suspicion of being the secret founder of modern Satanism! Some here may know of the damned soul by the name of Anton LaVey who went public with Satanism in the 1960's, however, it all began in secrecy in the 19th Century by Charles Darwin!!! YES! IT'S TRUE!!!!! It quickly and oh so quietly spread throughout the globe from secret encoded Satanic texts that could only be read under the influenc of demons and unclean spirits. Than one man decided to adopt the teachings as his own and went public. One of the primary things LaVey excluded from his wretched Satanic Bible was evolution! He did not want Darwin's most prevalent work of lunacy to be made known as a Satanic teaching, because it would hurt it's public acceptance!

What I am telling you all is true! Please, I beg of you, do not inquire of the source of this information. By me doing so, I will be in great danger!

I pray that God lets the Patriot act stand, even if that means He has to "Retire" some members of the supreme court to make that body more representative of His will. The Patriot Act allows the President to better root out the Muslim evildoers who are a constant danger, not only to our bodies, but to our souls. It is my hope that in the future he will also be able to use this mighty tool against other enemies of God.

Because they are not in denial.
Because they are just a result of Social Conditioning.

Since evolution and creationism cannot be proven right or wrong. It's just pure idiocy to think that you should only teach evolution or creationism. It's just like all the theories about how the dinosaurs died, no one is absolutely sure so you are usually taught at least 2 of the prefered theories. But to call this some stupid conservative thing really just highlights why people think liberal thinkers are the antichrist. The main problem with it, is that the school board made a decision on what to teach in Science class not based on science but what they "felt" was correct. Science isn't about feelings, it's about facts data and experiments. Outlawing theories is un-American and can only lead to a closed minded society that has a problem grasping difficult new concepts.

I have no problem with homosexuality. I have a problem with homosexual acts. As I would with acts of other, what I would consider to be, acts outside of traditional heterosexual relationships. And that includes a variety of different acts, not just homosexual. I have nothing, absolutely nothing against anyone who's homosexual. If that's their orientation, then I accept that. And I have no problem with someone who has other orientations. The question is, do you act upon those orientations? So it's not the person, it's the person's actions. And you have to separate the person from their actions.

I don't have films that portray modern philosophies or fashions, have sexually questionable material in them, or are non/anti-christian in general theme... When I go movie shopping, I rule out 99.5% of everything out there. Most of my films were released before 1965 or take place during/prior to WWII. Exceptions include a few modern films such as Star Wars, Narnia, and Lord of the Rings.

Bottom line? If the women don't wear dresses and traditional family structures aren't found in the film, you won't find it in my collection. If there's blaitant sin in it you certainly won't find it there. If Christ isn't in one form or another elevated or endorsed by the spirit and character of the movie, it goes (a) back to the store it came from or (b) into the trash can... no regrets about it. I hate liberalism and compromise, and I will until the day I die.

A liberal mindset has crept through our society following the second world war... bringing us to the brink of social colapse. We now are forced to fight a new war of right and wrong-- only this time around, in an atmosphere that denies the existance of both.

And if I witnessed an illegal abortion and the women died, I'd walk past her dead body and spit on her!

Quote# 17550

Once people started to deny that sin exists and make up their own "morals" here is what happened:

In the 1960's when the pill was introduced, people began to challenge the idea of "sin" which led them to think that there was nothing wrong with premarital sex. This led to the rise in std's and many more unwanted pregnancies which then led them to figure out what to do with them. So since sin was no longer considered sin, then instead of abstaining from sex, the idea of killing the unborn babies became another viable option. Killing babies then became legalized and many people began to think that we were finally becoming civilized.

Then in then 1970's, premarital sex wasn't enough so the next step was open marriages. This led to swinging, adultery, divorce, and broken familes. Then in the 1980's when adultery wasn't enough, homosexuality began to make its public appearance. This led to the AIDS epidemic which is now considered to be on track as the number one cause of death in the world.

This led to the 1990's where still claiming there's no sin, homosexuals were given socieity's sanction to marry each other. And now the definition of marriage has changed for the first time in the history of mankind from being between a man and a woman to being between one person and another. This shows that the secular world has no clue why people were created male and female. Only religious people know. And it's still being debated about which person can marry which person, i.e. a mother and her child, a father and his child, etc. Now society has to change the definition of a husband and wife! A husband can now be a woman and a wife can now be a man!

And this is just the tip of the iceberg of what can happen when people deny sin. Not only do they have no clue what marriage is, but what is right and wrong, period. And this confusion is what we are passing along to our children all to deny that God and sin exist. And then we wonder why our children are murdering people today? An adult first has to know what right and wrong is before he can teach his children anything! This shows that we are definitely not fitter than the previous generations but in an escalating state of decay. And what's sad is that many adults who consider themselves so intelligent can't see that. That's how arrogance clouds judgment. Only Christians appear to understand why the above is decadent and leads people to death because we don't deny that sin exists. And atheists calls us evil. Yes indeed, Satan can deceive people into believing that the truth is a lie and that lies are the truth.

J P Moreland an excellent Christian Philosopher responding to atheists claim that man is nothing more than brains and a body that ceases to exist at death has philsophically from science refuted that claim by giving a sound argument for the existence of an IMMATERIAL SOUL.

He has stated that from a LEGAL PERSPECTIVE if human beings were merely material, man COULD NOT be held accountable THIS YEAR for a crime LAST YEAR because physical composition changes over time. IOW everyday, we lose multiplied millions of microscopic particles-in fact every seven years virtually every part of our material anatomy changes APART from aspects of our neurological system. From a purely material perspective therefore, the person who previously committed a crime is PRESENTLY NOT the same person.

However, to attempt to use this reasoning as a line of defense would not get very far because the IMMATERIAL MIND (soul) that atheists claim doesn't exist in fact DOES EXIST because your mind stays with you even though materially you fully change.

Again atheism bites the dust.

They are really no better than the loathsome Judeo-Christlamic Father/God Cultists they profess to despise.

Therefor, I judge your above statement to be disingenuous, even if you make it honestly.
