Aron-Ra: Meteorology and the Flood

    A few days ago, Aron-Ra posted a new video commencing what he promises to be a new series debunking the Noachian Flood. He did this despite the fact that every adult should know it didn't happen, and yet many do.

    I'd like to remind everyone what the Insight book says:

    Where did this “heavenly ocean” come from? The Genesis account of creation tells how on the second “day” Jehovah made an expanse about the earth, and this expanse (called “Heaven”) formed a division between the waters below it, that is, the oceans, and the waters above it. (Ge 1:6-8) The waters suspended above the expanse evidently remained there from the second “day” of creation until the Flood. This is what the apostle Peter was talking about when he recounted that there “were heavens from of old and an earth standing compactly out of water and in the midst of water by the word of God.” Those “heavens” and the waters above and beneath them were the means that God’s word called into operation, and “by those means the world of that time suffered destruction when it was deluged with water.” (2Pe 3:5, 6) Various explanations have been offered as to how the water was held aloft until the Flood and as to the processes that resulted in its falling. But these are only speculative. The Bible says simply that God made the expanse with waters above it and that he brought the Deluge. His almighty power could easily accomplish it.

    Since, as the Genesis account says, “all the tall mountains” were covered with water, where is all that water now? Evidently it is right here on the earth.

    Aron-Ra tackles that belief, too, and explains how life would be under a global water canopy. Enjoy.

    What the WTS doesn't accept or acknowledge is that various ancient civilizations told many diverse stories of how the world was created, as the ancient Hebrew civilization did.

    Human ignorance about the world the ancients lived in and era, is an indefensible fact, sorry religionists.

    Many discoveries over the centuries through scientific evaluation have revealed what the ancients tried to understand and perhaps not to their fault. such as why the open sky is blue and its not because there is expanse of water above.

    Animals need grass and vegetation, they congregate near rivers for said foods. Humans eat animals and drink water and die within days of an absence ....and so likewise established communities near rivers and water.

    Sea levels and water levels adjust constantly from drought to floods.

    What a surprise....... all human civilisations have stories of FLOODS.

    Not of A FLOOD but of FLOODS.

    That's one of things that I hated growing up as JWS , the organization that I was supposed to be faithful to never told the truth, avoided the truth, twisted the truth and never sought the truth.

    The Flood of Noah is just one of the mythical fictional stories told by one select ancient civilization and was probably plagiarized from the ancient flood story of Epic of Gilgamesh.

    The bible is full of ancient mythical stories from Genesis to Revelation.

    There are some difficult questions if flood account is true:

    1) 8.7 million species to be loaded in 7 days

    2) Complete burden fallen on the lone righteous family (the wicked died within minutes)—something that should not happen when God Almighty directs matters

    3) Flood did not cleanse the earth permanently, soon earth filled with violence again

    4) China’s history remained untouched by Noah’s flood

    5) Jesus had totally different picture about Noah’s flood and the reasons that led into it (Mat 24:36)

    Thinking back to the biblical account as described by the witnesses in the Insight book, it seems God had prepared this expanse of water just so he could provide a deluge....if so that is predestination - so much for free will.

    Its also interesting that the Bible describes "An earth standing compactly out of water in the midst of water..." very much sounds like they believed in one landmass. The American and Australian continents not having been discovered yet by Middle Eastern humans demonstrates again that humans authored the Bible.

    800,000 years of ice core samples from Antarctica and 150,000 years from Greenland, no evidence of a global flood! According to the Bible timeline great pyramid at Giza should show evidence of being covered over by water for a year, there is none.
