"How much would it have to rain every day for a month (that's how long it poured down for, right?) in order to cover even the highest mountains (which we both seem to remember the bible claiming)?"

He started doing the math, and the result was that it would have to rain so much that the waterlevel/height would have to in increase by about 140 meters every day.
Something which made me giggle like a girl.

Even he looked baffled by the thought of that.
But, he ended up defending it with "Well, if god created this and that, then surely he could make that (insane amounts of rain)happen too"

The math might ofcourse be wrong for all I know, but..

But, if it rained that much...

Would it be safe to go outside?
Would people drown from the downpour alone in such a case?

You do know that Rain was not the only source of water the bible reports to be the source of the flood right?

Was Rain a character in the bibble or are we talking about rain?

And how does this change zero evidence for any global flooding?

I love semantics with reference to global flood, it doesnt fucking matter if the great mythical sky daddy stood on top of Mount Everest and pissed water for 4,000 years to flood the earth, there....here, let me say it slooooower...there exists ZERO evidence for a GLOBAL worldwide flood.....ZERO...and it damn sure didn't occur in 2349 BCE *points to Greenland, yet again for the thinking challenged*

oh wait let me guess he hid the evidence right Laugh out load

If by "he" you mean god you are absolutely wrong. Obviously Satan hid the evidence for the flood. Just like how he planted fossils...

Okay, playing god's advocate for a moment: perhaps the tallest mountain back then was only, like 50 feet tall. Rolleyes

Then it would only have to rain a bit over a foot a day, over the entire world. And sure, the rainfall itself would kill everyone who was outside, but that was kind of the point, right?

RE: Dat Noah Flood
As has been stated elsewhere, rain need not have been the sole source of water nor did the mountains need to stand at their present heights...

And has been stated elsewhere, you create circular arguments at TTA by asking me for scholarly citations then rejecting the scholars themselves.

I'm told atheists on forums like TTA are bitter and angry. If you are not, your posts to me will be respectful, insightful and thoughtful. Prove me wrong by your adherence to decent behavior.

For the sake of argument, let's just say that water from subterranean sources aided in a global flood. The entirety of Earth is submerged with the exception of Noah and his nautical menagerie.
Wouldn't the Egyptians, Sumerians, and Minoans (who all existed before, during, and after the alleged flood) all have either been completely destroyed, or perhaps bothered to mention it in their records? If the whole point of flooding the Earth was to kill all of the humans (the other billions of animals were mere collateral damage), that would seem like a major oversight.
