If this point has been covered before please forgive me.
I have had the principles of Noahs flood used by JW's to encourage me to attend meetings recently and this has got me musing about the flood....again.
Genesis states that a river flowed from Eden and branched out into four rivers, two of which being the Tigris and the Euphrates.
Heres the baffling part; If it had never rained before, how is it that rivers existed before the flood?!!?
A brief google search tells us that the Euphrates begins its journey as snow melt and rain ( as most rivers do) in mountains in Turkey.
Ecc chapter 1 mentions the water cycle and describes the rivers flowing into the sea but the sea not becoming full. How did it work pre-flood? Was there a constantly filling ocean?
I had never thought about a river in Eden contradicting the rainless, pre-flood world before so I thought I would share it. Once again, sry if its been mentioned previously.
