Where did the water come from?
The Hydrology of Eden Deduction 1
When the Lord God made the universe, there were no plants on the earth and no seeds had sprouted, because he had not sent any rain, and there was no one to cultivate the land; but water would come up from beneath the surface and water the ground.(Genesis 2:4-6) Good News Translation
A stream flowed in Eden and watered the garden; beyond Eden it divided into four rivers. The first river is the Pishon; it flows around the country of Havilah. (Pure gold is found there and also rare perfume and precious stones.) The second river is the Gihon; it flows around the country of Cush. The third river is the Tigris, which flows east of Assyria, and the fourth river is the Euphrates.(Genesis 2:10-14) Good News Translation
The simple answer to the question: where did the water come from which watered the surface of the land? is: it up welled at Eden. But, how did it get to Eden if there hadn’t been any rain?
- IF a river from Eden watered the surface of the Earth,
- BUT there hasn’t been any rain,
- THEN where did the water come from?
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
Let’s think through what we’ve been told here. Apparently the Earth had rivers but there hadn’t been any rain. Is this flowery poetic language or should we start digging for clues? We’re going to demonstrate how to deduce the answer by investigating further and asking more questions. Over the next few days we’ll ask a series of questions to construct a generalized model of the topography and hydrological cycle of the original Earth.
The Hydrology of Eden
Hydrology deduction 1: Where did the water come from to water the Earth if there hadn’t been any rain? By the time we’re finished asking and answering questions, we’ll understand why a mountain that filled the whole Earth is a repeating theme in the broad narrative of scripture.
