Genesis 7: 18 The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 19 They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered. 20 The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than fifteen cubits.
The book of Genesis tells us that the flood of Noah’s day covered the entire earth, and the water rose above the highest mountain. Some people try to claim that the Bible teaches that the world is flat, but not only does it never say so, but it says much which disproves this theory. One such example is the flood.
A flood above the highest mountains can’t work on a flat earth. A global flood assumes a ball earth, because only on a globe can the waters continue to rise. If the earth were flat, the water could not rise above the highest mountains. The water would run over the edge of the disk before it could pile up a mile or more.
So this accusation that Genesis teaches a flat earth doesn’t hold any water.
Boom. That’s science, bro.
