As It is Written
In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights. Genesis 7:11-12 NKJV
Now the flood was on the earth forty days. The waters increased and lifted up the ark, and it rose high above the earth. The waters prevailed and greatly increased on the earth, and the ark moved about on the surface of the waters. And the waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth, and all the high hills under the whole heaven were covered. The waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered. Genesis 7:17-20 NKJV
From where did all that water come? What fountains of the deep?
There is much unscientific speculation on the origin of water. Some suggest comets.
What does genuine science suggest?
Researchers have found evidence of a potential “ocean’s worth” of water deep beneath the United States.
Although not present in a familiar form, the building blocks of water are bound up in rock located deep in the Earth’s mantle, and in quantities large enough to represent the largest water reservoir on the planet, according to the research.
Ongoing discoveries reveal vast reservoirs in depths impossible, for the time, to be pumped to the surface.

Just the Facts
According to the USGS, 71% of the earth’s surface is water. The USGS also reports, “About three-quarters of Earth’s freshwater is stored in glaciers. Therefore, glacier ice is the second largest reservoir of water on Earth and the largest reservoir of freshwater on Earth!”
If the Earth were a smooth spheroid, how deep would the ocean be? The entire land mass would be under approximately 2.717 kilometers, 1.69 miles, of water. Reference: Earth Science Beta

Truth is the way things really are. Don’t you agree?
The myth about a so-called population bomb. This idea was made popular by a fellow named Paul R. Ehrlich in his 1968 book titled The Population Bomb. Erlich predicted there would be insufficient food production to feed the world’s hungry within about 20 years, the 1970s and 1980s. Well, it’s 2018 and we Americans are the fattest in the history of the world.
India is often seen as a country where people are stacked like a cord of wood. Truth runs contrary to this myth. India is a favored destination for people who wish to visit vast wildernesses, game preserves, and national parks.
How dense is the most populous nation on earth? India’s population density in terms of people per square mile compares to the state of New Jersey, the Garden State.
Folks like Professor Erlich have a poverty mentality, visions of scarcity. Is there any place on earth where there are scarcities? Yes, indeed, and they are all countries under the stranglehold of totalitarian governments – Venezuela, for example, where children are dying in the country with the world’s largest proven oil reserves.
And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:19
We Texans know the pinch of water shortages. Despite our very large state, only one of our thousands of lakes is natural. Water is a critical commodity but I have faith all we need has already been laid up for us.
Doomsayers like Paul Erlich, Al Gore, and atheists everywhere, both professing and practical, have no knowledge of the future, but the God who made you, them, and me, holds our futures in the palm of his hand. God’s provisions are more than enough to sustain us.
