Re: Does Isaiah 54:9 refute a figurative Noah's flood?
If all of mankind inhabited a region say the size of the state of Kansas and if that area and the surrounding states were flooded that would wipe mankind off the face of the Earth without inundating the entire planet. No needs to submerge the Himalayas or the Andes for instance if nobody was anywhere near them.
If you want to describe the Earth as essentially meaning the “then known” world you are agreeing that the Flood need not be global in extent. No need to flood most of Africa, Europe and none of Australia, North America and South America.
The idea that the sediments were still soft as they slid around the world is so full of problems that I couldn’t possibly fit them in one post. Suffice it to say formations like this couldn’t form if the sediments were still soft (and this is but one of thousands of similar formations).
And the sort of heat would quickly remove any moisture so the sediment wouldn’t be soft for very long and you’re once again faced with friction that would basically turn the crust molten.
Gihon has been identified as being the Karkheh. The Pishon has been variously identified with the Nile, the Indus, the Ganges and even the less known Kuwait River.
As for "best evidence," why don't we start with Siccar Point shown above. I'll be awaiting your C&P PRATTs.Always strive to keep an open mind – but not so open that your brains fall out!Still afeared of & dodging The PINTM
