Hi, the stories of an earth wide deluge are told in many versions all over the world. Some say that the flood of Noah’s Ark was only a flash flood as we have today that is covering the ground up to the thighs, some places even higher to the chest. But the story of Noah’s Ark is flood waters that covered the highest mountain as in Mt. Everest that is over 29,000 feet. That would make the waters of the flood into outer space. Must remember it was just a story for how could the earth hold the waters if it overwhelmed the earth into outer space? The Bible says the waters drained off the earth. We don’t see that happening even now. I believe the waters will be absorbed into the ground, there are desert areas on earth.
