At the time of the creation of the United States of America, the word natural meant the features of the universe were the creation of God. I reference an excerpt of the 1st sentence of the 2nd paragraph of the Unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America: “… the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God… “. I write from this same worldview.
From where did all that water come that flooded the earth in the time of Noah? Look to Genesis 7:11 for an answer. “In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, the same day, all the fountains of the great deep burst open and the floodgates of the heavens were opened.“
Obviously, the phrase the floodgates of Heaven point to massive, unrelenting rainfall. The fountains of the great deep are my focus.
I quote from the article Massive ‘ocean’ discovered towards Earth’s core posted in the NewScientist online magazine, 12 June 2014.
“A reservoir of water three times the volume of all the oceans has been discovered deep beneath the Earth’s surface. The finding could help explain where Earth’s seas came from… the new discovery supports an alternative idea that the oceans gradually oozed out of the interior of the early Earth… “We should be grateful for this deep reservoir,” says Jacobsen. “If it wasn’t there, it would be on the surface of the Earth, and mountain tops would be the only land poking out.”” close quote.
It is said, and I believe, nothing and no one can create something greater than itself. God created the universe. Therefore, God is greater than the universe.
