2) There were roughly 1900 years between the Creation and the Flood going by the geneologies listed in Genesis. So that's 19 centuries.
1) Im not disputing that "the fountains of the deep" exist...What I am desputing is that this apparent layer of water in the crust, with the ability to burst like a volcano, due to tidal pressure build up, is what the Bible means by the term "Fountains of the deep"
The truth is, we dont know what that is describing...and whilst it COULD be a description of a water volcano...it might also mean something else entirely...a bit like the term "as the waters cover the sea" well...what could that mean, how can you cover with water, something already of water? one could argue, thats a Tsunami...a wave of water that covers the sea near the coast...but I wouldnt be certain that the bible was refering to that, just because it matches the description, when a great many possibilities are out there.
I personally, am not inclined to believe the theory just because if one can believe such a glaring astronomical falsity as used in that video...I dont see how we can relay on the fact that they wouldnt make the same falsity in regards to the seizmological prepositions. Although I am not learned enough to know that...to me it raises a high chance that this person isnt reliable...and therefore I can not adopt this position
2) The problem with this whole argument is that athiestic Scientists can never see a world with GOD as creator...and the Christians can never see GOD in creation.
The easy answer is to say that GOD didnt mean it like that...Athiests point out that Genesis has MORE THEN ONE version of the same Creation and it differs, and the Christians can tend to think that like Revelation, the Creation accounts are figurative and not litteral.
I take an interesting approach...because I happen to believe that as a Historical text, Genesis should be taken litterally....and yet I also have no problem with stuff happening "before" Creation.
The reason is because I think that "Creation" was took place in the Spiritual Realm...in THE SAME WAY, that "Salvation" happened. Therefore Dinosaurs can appear BEFORE Adam...Just as Moses can be Saved before Christ.
Why...Because both are Eternal! As Christ and his Salvation work Backwards from one chronological point, to cover History both before and after the event...why not Creation? Why cant creation go backwards into History just as it goes forwards...stemming from one chronological event?
Just as Moses was credited with Righteousness, before the Chronological point at which Salvation was available...so Dinosaurs can be credited with Creation, BEFORE the Chronological point at which Creation was avilable
Because the author of both Creation (Life) and Salvation (Eternal Life) has been Timeless.
When you remove the barriers caused by time...you see that its possible for someone to be saved in an age of death, just as something can exist in an age before creation.
Thankyou...and good night
