That is not something the Bible says God does. He never works outside of his principles.

You do not know the story. Water was released from a large source that had been underground before. It is not mysterious.
Oh yes, and the Flood itself - gathering enough water, from somewhere, to drown that spinning planet bar a man and his family and a boatfull of animals miraculously gathered together from all over that planet to a spot in the MiddleEast, was it?).
Well, not all drowned, you know. And again, how far do you go in your reverence for animals? Animals are animals. They breed rapidly and there are usually enough under normal hunting and other circumstances-
This omnipotent god, creator of all things - and what was it? Collateral damage? Just a little bit of something unpleasant which involved millions of creatures swimming for their lives, becoming exhausted and then drowning.
You? No reason.-
Why would I believe any of that?
What is that to you? You do not know it or believe it. That is no argument for you.
Oh - I know. It's in the Bible.
For those of us who understand who wrote it and what it means, this is so. But for you, what is that to you?
And if it's in the Bible it must be true.
You are not talking to me in that as I know a circular argument when I read one. What the Bible says is true because it matches real life where we can match it up. But this is a long and different discussion. I believe the Bible to contain truth because it explains those two most important elements i the world, man and God. It gives a perfect answer as to why men are the way we are and what God does and why. And what the Book says MATCHES real life. I do not force real life to match. It already does same as my anatomy book shows the structures of the human body and I do not have force what it says to match real bodies. But i do not expect you to believe this. I just wanted you to know what I thought. How can you know if you disagree with me if you do not know what I think?
Why's that?'Coz it's in the Bible, stoopid!
