Noah's ark rides upon the floods

August 28

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.

(Genesis 7:11-12) KJV

Noah’s flood was not only a world-wide catastrophe, it was also a process which involved several stages. It gives us a way to account for the stratigraphic column, Cambrian through Quaternary.

The Iridium Anomaly

August 19

The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;

(Genesis 8:2) KJV

We finished a step-by-step deconstruction of the Paleozoic and Mesozoic, but there’s another issue that we’re going to account for: the Iridium anomaly.

Equatorial Glaciation?

August 13

Then God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the animals that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided.

(Genesis 8:1) NKJV

After Noah’s flood a wind caused the water to evaporate. The cooling effect caused the formation of equatorial and polar ice. Temperate zones were in the mid-latitudes of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.

Paleozoic/Lower Noachian (Deluge)

Lower Noachian

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the windows of the heavens were opened.

(Genesis 7:11) ESV

The fountains of the great deep burst open because the expansion of hell caused the waters of the great deep to heat up to boiling point where they were in contact with the core.

The Timeline for Noah’s Flood

And it came to pass in the six hundred and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, that the waters were dried up from the earth; and Noah removed the covering of the ark and looked, and indeed the surface of the ground was dry. And in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dried.

(Genesis 8:13-14) NKJV

The timeline for Noah’s flood comes directly from scripture and this is the framework that we use to interpret evidence from the stratigraphic column.
