Unnatural Selection?
Luke 12:33

Just about every public school textbook once included the example of the peppered moth. The moth is used as a prime example of natural selection. Supposedly, as the trees in the English countryside...

Your number is incorrect. If the planet were completely flat the water would cover the earth to a depth of nearly three kilometers.

You seem to have missed my point about Mt. Everest. You're still making the same claim I pointed out was fallacious, namely that the present height of Mt. Everest is the height it must have been at the time of the Biblical flood. Paleocurrents show us that in the lowest layers there is no continental nor mountainous differentiation. That is, the direction of water flow is uniform through areas of current continental margins and uniform through areas where mountains exist today. If the continents were there, the water would change course and run downhill into the ocean. If the mountains were there, the water would run downhill away from the mountains. This data clearly indicates the earth was scoured flat or nearly so at the beginning of the Flood. As we move upwards through the geologic layers, we begin to see the continents and the mountains form. Mt. Everest, and pretty much every other mountain on the planet, formed during and after the Flood. The present height of Mt. Everest is a post-Flood value, so it does not disprove the Bible's claim that the Flood covered all the world.
