"... and the waters assuaged; And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated."
GENESIS 8:1, 3
As even secular geologists observe, it appears that the continents were at one time “together” and not separated by the vast oceans we see today. The forces involved in the Flood were sufficient to change all of this. Some creation scientists believe this break-up of the continent was part of the mechanism that ultimately caused the Flood.
Scripture indicates that God formed the ocean basins, raising the land out of the water, so that the Flood waters returned to a safe place. Some theologians believe PSALM 104:5 - 9 may refer to this event.
Sign of Design: Most children’s coloring books actually worsen the problem of viewing the early Genesis accounts as real history. Depictions of Eden’s animals invariably exclude those real, once-living creatures - dinosaurs. This reinforces the idea that Genesis does not deal with real history, making it harder for the creation message to penetrate in adulthood.
