Crazy guy darth frosty. re: the feezing ark. . I looked at the canopy coming down problem. how high was it, as imagined? a hemispheric dome firmament over a flat earth? 6000 km high? or more conservatively estimated at satelite orbit heights? Than it would take 1 million joules to put a kilo up there. 4184 joules will heat that kilo 1 degree c. (1kcalory). so: upon falling the mass of the water canopy, would have been heated to 240 degrees c. superheated steam. The ark would not have floated. Wood and bitumen ignite at that temperature. It would have burned while the oxigen lasted. The rain did NOT come from HIGH up in that story.
I re-did the atmosphere at the new sea level above Everest, and the fall in pressure is equivalent to the change in a 3 story climb, do not expect adiabatic cooling from that. how is that math?
Earth circumference 40 000 km. added heights 8 850km to radius X 2 ( to get diameter) =17.7km x 3,14= 55.6 km added to diameter. 40 000:55.6=~ 720. --.14 % --addiing a slice of ~56 km longditude to the existing atmosphere reduces the density by only .14%.
No aspect of the flood fable stands up to scrutiny.
at the rate of 1% of drop in air pressure for a 100 meter climb, this means, that above a lifted sea level surface at Everest not even an island, the air is not rarer than on a top of a 3 story building. dont expect adaibatic cooling.
