In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.(Genesis 7:11) KJV
The fountains of the great deep were created on the third day as the dry land was spread out over the waters of the deep. 1,656 years later they burst forth, allowing Noah’s flood to happen.
The fountains of the great deep had a function in the creative process. This is how the waters of the deep came to be in the interior of the Earth. The fountains weren’t created for the purpose of flooding the Earth.
If Noah’s flood is the result of natural processes which were set in motion at the fall of man when God cursed the Earth, what could they be? In hell and deduction are before the Lord we pursue this line of reasoning.
If hell has been expanding since the fall of man in Genesis 3, and the great gulf in the interior of the Earth is filled with the waters of the deep, then we can offer a simple solution to the question: what physical force caused the fountains of the great deep to break open? It doesn’t require a miracle or any supernatural agent, other than for it to have been part of God’s will. The great deep was heated to boiling point by the expansion of hell. At boiling point the pressure was enough to break open the fountains of the great deep.
If our model is correct, then the waters of the deep were part of a hydrological cycle and the water temperature was continually increasing throughout the antediluvian age. As such, it’s reasonable to suggest that the flood was preceded by antediluvian global warming. This very much echoes our time. A flood is coming upon us: the tribulation. This time we don’t have an ark, we have the church.
As the waters of the deep passed through the fountains of the great deep, the great gulf in the interior of the Earth went from wet to dry. Tehom became sheol.
We can also resolve a schism within creation science in reconstructers and remodelers missed the boat. The current crop of creationists are conflating Noah’s flood with Peleg’s tectonics as a way of providing a physical cause for the breakup of Pangaea. The problem is that they’re working with the popular science (SciPop) model of the interior of the Earth, which was designed for the express purpose of making it look like the Bible is impossible. We show where the energy came from to drive the events leading to Noah’s flood in biblical gravitation and the cause of Noah’s flood.
