The Math of the Great Flood

- 1:51 You are presuming Mt Everest was as high as or even existed before and during the Flood.
Let's assume volume 2 is instead just two km higher ...
(6371 km)^3*4/3*pi = 1 083 206 916 845.75 v1
(6373 km)^3*4/3*pi = 1 084 227 366 064.47 v2
1 084 227 366 064.47 v2
1 083 206 916 845.75 v1
= 1 020 449 218.72 km^3
2:40 the drop of "all water" minus the volume of the Flood height of water:
1 360 000 000.00 km^3 -
1 020 449 218.72 km^3
= 339 550 781 280 000 000 m^3
= 339 550 781.28 km^3
So, assuming Flooded Earth is two km higher than Earth normally is, the present volume of water suffices to cover that and there are even 339 millions of cubic km to spare.
Note also, while 2 km would be inadequate for Mt Ararat now so called, it is fairly adequate for Mount Judi, with its highest point at 2,089 m.
Meaning, the water IS still here.
- 3:54 Let's go with 2 km water, instead.
73 in * 40 = 2920 in = 74.168 m
730 in * 40 = 741.68 m ten times heavier
1460 in * 40 = 1483.36 m twenty times heavier
Now, between ten and twenty times heavier means, the rest of the volume has to be accounted for by subterranean waters.
- 4:14 Again, you are considering the number of species existing now.
What if for each family there were just one or two species on the ark (interfertile for male and female) and the rest of the species developed since the Flood?
What kinds of animals needed the Ark? Mammals (except the flly aquatic ones), birds, "reptiles", perhaps also amphibians, if they could not survive as tadpoles during the Flood.
Now, mammals would perhaps be 5000 species - but it is just 126 families.
I went to first classification type, "molecular classification of placentals" (I was leaving out marsupials, but they are perhaps about as many families as aquatic mammals).
Now, I copied each indenture where it said "Family", then took them to a word document, then replaced "Family " with "" and clicked "replace all", which gave 126 changes.
5:04 Let's replace your "1 000 000 species" with 126 mammal kinds.
126 / 12 hours
126 pairs in / 720 min
126 / 720 = ... let's reverse
720 minutes / 126 pairs = each pair had
720 / 126 < 5 min 40 seconds
Certainly, apart from mammal kinds there were also bird and reptile kinds.
But birds and reptiles aren't quite as varied as mammals.
And I am counting on all animals brought on board on one single day, as you do.
5:39 I am accepting your volume of 1 518 750 cubic ft.
Now, I am presuming there were 126 mammal and 126 non-mammal families (birds, reptiles, but also extinct mammals, dinosaurs), meaning 252 pairs = 504 animals.
1 518 750 / 504 = 3 013 (and some) cubic feet per animal.
5:45 obviously, if most animals were smaller than sheep, this leaves plenty of room for supplies too.
- 7:18 "It is only after this fails"
But it doesn't fail for me, at all.
Your math is based on unsound interpretations of what the Universal Flood and Young Earth Scenario really entails.
No Creation scientist in AiG or CMI will consider it sound to say Mt Everest was the height it is now during or before the Flood. None of them will concede that Noah had to deal with many more than thousands of passenger species (worms are obviously more like a food supply species, right, food supply for birds). And I even narrowed it down to 252 pairs.
Are you aware that hedgehogs and moonrats are one family but 25 species? That moonrats differ from hedgehogs in having hairs instead of keratine spikes?
That amarillos even come in two families, as do sloths. Or is it armadillos, and I was thinking of Sherry? I think so.
