I found the cartoon below on the internet. It is about calculating the amount of rain water which supposedly would have been enough to destroy Noah’s Ark.
I’m not sure how they measure rain water so any comment would be appreciated.
I have never believed or taught that the level of water literally reached the top of Mt. Everest. Personally, I think that this is an absurd interpretation of Genesis 7. The water rose 20 ft, not 29,000 ft (Genesis 7:20). EXACTLY what this 20 feet above the mountains in forty days means, I really am not sure. However, if we take this literally, that means 0.5 feet per day, which is 0.25 inches of rain per hour. The fact is that in the recent Hurricane Harvey, roughly three feet of rain fell in two days. BTW, Billy’s calculation is a correct one, but, if the teacher said that the water rose 29,000 feet then she is not interpreting the flood story correctly.
