"Genesis 1 vers 6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day."

That's great, but now those crazy Creationists are going to use this as 'evidence' to prove the existence of the Great Flood and the Noah's Ark story... On the side note: Does it have a chance of getting to the surface? And how can we extract the water for our own purposes?

More proof in the flood of Noah.

Not specifically to this video, but I love how people think theres an ocean full of unknown life 3 meters under us.

This is crap science.  Every volcano spews out sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide and water vapour gas.  At the temperatures and pressures deep within the earth, water molecules are in a solution with the molten silicates.  It's only when the gas infused lava gets near the Earth's surface where the pressure decreases that the dissolved gases fizz out like when you shake a bottle of Coke and pop the lid.....Yeah there's a LOT of water down there but it ain't for swimmin' in.

I love the fact we are so awed by life in space etc when we have only explored 2%ish of the ocean, which accumulates to a huge percentage of earth. Imagine what could be down in this new ocean. Essentially another world in itself.

A hole new meaning to the term and movie water world! This would suck.

“In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up.” Genesis 7:11

They cut out part of the video and i'm sure he was about to say this is overwhelming evidence for noah's flood, because it is.

theres also alot hiding in this "guy"s  bunghole also
the water receded from the earth too, so with the great flood story this works...

Doesnt the GREAT FLOOD storys claim the water came from within the EARTH ???

I am a historian that has studied it and I can tell you but one truth, every culture has the stories and lore, and tribal stories and they are all very similar and ironically at about the same period of time, right about the time the last ice age ended. The old Cherokee story is the most cool, a rock fell from the area of the sky called turtle's belt "Orion's belt" and landed in the sea to the east "Atlantic" then earthquakes, huge waves, and water fell for many weeks on end afterwards and the whole earth was in fear. from study I know these stories are true, when a culture does not have contract with one another and tells a similar large scale event as this historians call that proof of a event when all the data is the same from one side of the planet to another, to remote to not so remote places.  you shouldn't believe what you hear but study for yourself,  go on now,  the truth is amazing, so amazing

+Messenger Disciple alright it's been nice talking to you.

+djancak I'm not worried. People that make ridiculous claims that it didn't happen aren't concerned with facts and are of no consequence. The rest will come to the same conclusion I stated. 
You Don't Say? (3 years ago)
+Messenger Disciple that's quite a claim you have there. would be a shame if anybody actually tested your claim.
Messenger Disciple (3 years ago)
Didn't happen? Every civilization in history knew and spoke of the flood. Even atheistic secular scientists confirm it. You have absolutely no clue what you're talking about. 
its a very interesting finding.  just wait for the fundamentalist Christians to start harping about how this one study proves the great flood story.  then all of a sudden they will just love science.  the problem is that with science you don't get to cherry pick whatever will fit your belief system.  they will cherry pick this and ride it like a stolen surfboard.
Messenger Disciple (3 years ago)
1 study?? LMAO. That's insanely ignorant. Even if you take the Biblical account as fictional, it still happened. I  love how these self proclaimed "intellectuals" , always think they're superior, and then make ridiculous comments that show how full of  b.s. they are. Cherry picking? You do realize almost all science never lasts and is replaced constantly? They call it facts, when it is nothing but theory, and ignore what the evidence actually shows. At that moment, a new science is born. Then it's like amnesia hits and act like they were right all along. So whose cherry picking? 
techofreal (3 years ago)
No cherry picking on our side.  We use all the evidence and don't throw away what doesn't fit like evolutionists have to do.

Why are these videos so underrated? they are awesome, to the point and informative!

I think there are just too many channels doing the exact same thing.  I think that if Newsy Science and DNews merged, we would get twice the content, because they wouldn't have to both work on the same stories, and subscriptions would skyrocket because we would get twice the content.  Win! Win!

Great job .Very well delivered. We are very interested in rocks around here and this adds something new.
