1) Noah’s Flood: And the Waters Went…? 2) Idolatry

Simply put, the water from the Flood is  still in the oceans and seas we see today.  

And the majority of geologists observe, it  does appear that the continents were at one  time all “together” and not separated by the  vast oceans of today. So there are very good reasons to believe these features likely formed  during or since the great deluge, and that the Earth during Noah’s pre-Flood day didn’t have the  high mountains or deep ocean trenches of today.

The forces involved in the Flood were  certainly sufficient to change the  planet. Scripture indicates that God formed the  ocean basins, raising the land out of the water,  so that the floodwaters ‘returned’ to a safe place. Some theologians believe Psalm 104:7–9 may refer to this event, indicating how God  ended the Flood—by raising the mountains and lowering the ocean basins so the water  ran off the Earth to form the present oceans.

Some creation scientists believe this breakup  of the continent was part of the mechanism that  ultimately caused the Flood, possibly associated  with continental break up and plate tectonics.  

For the record… Psalm 104:5-8

5 He set the earth on its foundations,
    so that it should never be moved.
You covered it with the deep as with a garment;
    the waters stood above the mountains.
At your rebuke they fled;
    at the sound of your thunder they took to flight.
The mountains rose, the valleys sank down
    to the place that you appointed for them.
You set a boundary that they may not pass,
    so that they might not again cover the earth.

Psalm 104:5-9, English Standard Version

A reasonable, logical and rational viewpoint.

As opposed to the meaningless “Stuff happens” of the irrational Darwinians, with their profound hatred of a purpose, law, and authority that does not originate with them.

Implicit and Explicit Idolatry

Christians may not worship or exalt men over God… implicitly or explicitly.

Even if they are wearing lab coats.

I rather doubt if Stalin with his Scientific Socialism was ever actually worshipped in a cultic fashion, unlike Mao and the Marxist Chinese leadership… with their great hunger to have private crosses in rural homes replaced with pictures of the current Political Master.

Instead, Stalin simply said what the Law was, and the Law was enforced with rigour. An additional goal – a goal that was reached – is to have the Soviet population fear Stalin more than anything or anyone else.

Certainly, to fear him more than they fear some invisible and unseen Creator-God in the sky… a concept viewed with contempt by any consistent materialist worth his salt… and his eyes on the main goal, taking the Throne of Law for himself.

“The Source of the Law is the Functional God of a Society.”

“Who you fear is who you worship.”

“Only Gods you can see, and Gods you can touch, matter.”

This is the kind of worship – compliance and obedience, external and internal – that Our Betters want… regardless of any and all scientific, legal, moral, or reality-based objections.

Especially regardless of any and all religious objections.
As Our Betters enjoy emphasizing repeatedly.

Regardless of the will of our political and cultural masters, Christians may not give powerful men the worshipful obedience and pants-soiling fear that Our Betters demand.

God’s Law comes first.

The Will of Powerful Men does not.
