# Paleozoic/Lower Noachian (Deluge)

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the windows of the heavens were opened.

(Genesis 7:11) ESV

The fountains of the great deep burst open because the expansion of hell caused the waters of the great deep to heat up to boiling point where they were in contact with the core.

#### Paleozoic Era

The pressure caused boiling water to come bursting out of the ground in many locations around the globe. It’s the physical cause for why the fountains of the great deep burst forth. As this occurred water from above the firmament, which had been traveling through space for some time as ice, also hit the Earth. We have the intermixing of very hot and very cold water in a deluge which is rapidly drowning the Earth.

If you tell people that you believe that frozen water traveled through space during Noah’s flood, don’t be surprised by some of the responses you’ll get. One of them will be: how long did it take for ice to travel from the firmament to Earth. On the face of it this is a problem because, on the face of it, the water would have had to start traveling before the Earth was created.

We can solve the issue with gravitational time dilation (GTD). A day on Earth is 1,000 years at the distance of the firmament (2 Peter 3:8). We also know that God warned Noah 120 years in advance that the flood was coming.

We have potentially 43.8 million years of travel time, even though the Earth is only about 6,000 years old. That’s Matty’s Paradox.

This solves another problem which is the counter claim that ice would have to travel faster than light (LS) to get to the Earth in a timely fashion. Given the amount of time that we have because of GTD (potentially 43.8 million years), the water would travel at less than 4% LS. Ponder that.

By a totally staggering coincidence, 4% LS is how fast the Sun is running his race around the heavens. We can speculate that 4% LS may be a benchmark for cosmic travel.
