Thank you, Rod, for elaborating on this. I also read such an article (Creations Moments from 7/23/2012, which cited the research from New Scientist, 8/30/97, pp. 22 26, "Deep Waters.") which actually indicated that because of the way that the waters are stored deep in the earth under intense heat and pressure, locked in minerals like wadsleyite, there is potentially enough water to fill 10 oceans in this mineral alone, and enough water for 30 oceans is concluded based on the water that is brought forth by volcanic eruptions. The Bible refers to these as "the fountains of the deep."
To assume that the mountains of today were the same height as the time before all this seismic activity began is truly begging the question. Your point is well taken, Rod, that discussions with those who argue from a "given premise" of long ages and "naturalism" expect you to make their same assumptions, though they are not validated, but rather contrived in the imagination and wishful thinking of the evolutionist.
What happens when you just let the evidence speak for itself? Then you move on to explain why there are abundant marine fossils on Mount Everest, why there are surface features (rain drops, animal tracks, etc.) on the layered sedimentary rocks of mountains, why there is no fossilized soil between those layers, why hard brittle rock bends for miles without any cracks like it was once a mud flow, why there are polystrate fossils, and why, in the midst of begging all of these questions, do the fossils NOT present what Darwin said was necessary to validate his theory: transitional gradations from one species to another.
Indeed, we are dealing with more than one logical fallacy here. All that is needed to advance true science is honesty without presumption. The Creation (which accounts for the 1st Law of Thermodynmics), the Curse (which accounts for the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics), and the Catastrophe (which accounts for the Fossil Evidence answering to a global flood) together stand as the only sensible explanation for the evidence which absolutely points to Divine intervention on every level.
