If a water canopy encompassed the whole earth, it would create a virtual greenhouse, regulating a perfect temperature
around the globe in which there would be no storm of any kind. The sky would have been picturesque and clear everyday. It
would have created a perfect tropical climate, worldwide! A place God called Paradise!
Prior to Noah's flood about 4400 years ago according to the Holy Scriptures, this water
canopy would have rested above the sky. Ancient people called it a "celestial ocean." Before the flood of Noah we
have no record of clouds or rain, as recorded in Genesis 2:5-6,
"And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of
the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground."
This cloudless sky that would have existed under this water canopy would then have
not allowed a rainbow to have formed PRIOR to the biblical flood.
God said, ‘This is the sign of the covenant. I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant
for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the
earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me
and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life."
The ancient civilizations of Babylon, Egypt, Greece, India, Hawaii, Indonesia,
Europe, Asia, and Australia all testify of a water canopy above the firmament. In the 1850s, British archaeologists found
about 20,000 clay tablets in the ruins of a library excavated in Nineveh which also support a celestial ocean in the sky.
It's important to remember that these people were not adherents to the Bible. This explains the unfamiliarity
of the rainbow in the sky during Noah's time and also, provides its significance. Today, we take it for granted.
the water canopy encompassed the entire earth, then a temperate climate would have existed throughout the entire globe
whether we are talking the area around poles or the equator. It would have been a tropical environment everywhere!
On May 31, 2006, the headline of Purdue University News reads, "North Pole's
Ancient Past Holds Clues about Future Global Warming."
The findings of a once tropical climate at the North Pole are, of course, true according to the physical evidence
discovered. However, the assumption of millions of years taking place are built upon the faulty belief of uniformitarianism,
and are not science at all, but simply incorrect hypotheses.
Purdue University News reports:
models fail to explain another puzzling fact. The temperature difference between the North Pole and the equator today is about
45 degrees Celsius. But the difference appears to have been much smaller during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum time
frame. Otherwise, it would have been too hot for vegetation to survive in equatorial latitudes.
‘We still haven't explained why the tropics stayed cool," Huber said.
"Somehow, we have to explain how you can warm the poles up to 23 degrees Celsius without having the tropics rise to at
least 50 degrees, which is 10 degrees too hot for plants to carry out photosynthesis."
He said the implications are troubling because current models may be providing optimistic predictions.
"Today's models under-predict how warm the poles were back then,
which tells you something disturbing - that the models, if anything, aren't sensitive enough to greenhouse gases," Huber
said. "At the same time, it is possible that other forces in addition to higher-than-normal greenhouse gas concentrations
were involved, otherwise we can't explain how the tropics maintained livable conditions. [End of quote]
The hard physical evidence points to a global temperate climate encompassing
the whole Earth at the same time. They cannot explain it. No models or theories based on evolutionary theory can explain it.
They do not accept the Biblical worldview of a young Earth and the water canopy theory that the Holy Bible speaks of in Genesis
1:6, because in their "science" following the evidence wherever it leads is trumped by the primary
objective of supporting the squatting rights of the evolutionary paradigm in the upper circles of society.
The camp of evolution has a lot at stake. Billions of dollars have been invested
in the Godless religion; careers and livelihoods, prestige and acceptance in the academic community are on the table. Their
freedom to live life without eternal consequence is of paramount importance and anything that contradicts their theory of
evolution which NEEDS millions and billions of years to be facilitated will be rejected or simply ignored!
thing that is of consequence, is that it rained upon the whole earth for 40 days and 40 nights at God's request. That would
be a lot of water in the sky, or better yet above the sky! This gives even more
credence to enormous amounts of water in the water canopy that must have fallen in a great catastrophe. To flood the entire
Earth, we must also understand that the fountains of the deep added to the water on the surface of the earth all at once and
in a sudden moment. The scars and physical evidence of the subterranean water bursting forth through the crust is along the
fault lines today including the massive scar running from pole to pole on the Atlantic Ocean floor today.
In Genesis 7, God opened the windows
of heaven and poured the protective water canopy down upon the earth. This destroyed every creature that had the breath of
life in its nostrils; with the exception of the residents of Noah's Ark. Things would never be the same again.
The destruction of this water canopy has produced devastating results. There are
billions of buried fossils from living creatures that were destroyed by water action. Over 95% of all fossils found are actually
marine fossils. That makes sense if the world was deluged by water. About 4% are plants and vegetation. The remaining 1% of
fossils found which include dinosaur bones are found in sandstone, limestone, or other water action rock layers or even permafrost
(ice). These are all sedimentary rock formations. That means they were buried by water action. Again, this supports the biblical
account. This is simply not discussed when evolutionists and non-believers speak about fossils and dinosaur bones.
There are also countless fish fossils and clams found in the closed position on
the world's mountain peaks. The ONLY way that clams can be fossilized in the closed position is in a FLOOD! Then, the next
question is; how can marine fossils be on top of mountain peaks? All the mountains all over the world including Mt. Everest
must have been under water during a flood at the same time. No one outside the biblical doctrine can explain this phenomenon.
Interesting enough, the Word of God has the explanation. In Psalm
104, it speaks about the last part of the flood where the mountains arose, the valleys sank down, and the waters
Another result of a water canopy above the expanse or sky would be the action of the canopy as a filter, blocking
deadly UV rays from the sun which arguably participate in every disease known to man. It would have only taken a layer of
ice about 18 inches thick to completely block the harmful rays of the sun such as ultraviolet rays, X-rays, microwaves, etc..
This result of this filter of the sun rays is that life spans of the inhabitants under this canopy would be much longer.
Students of the scriptures know that the average life span before the flood, in
the days of Noah, was 911 years. Today, this would seem fantastic and unbelievable were it not for the Holy Scriptures. Once
you understand the water canopy theory that is spawned from the scriptures themselves, you find that the science and nature
actually provide the proof.
With the water canopy destroyed
and then replaced by a one-and-one-half inch thick (approximately) ozone layer, the UV rays bombard the earth continually,
contributing in a major way to man's abbreviated 70-year life span.
after the flood, man's age span drops sharply from an average 911 years to 120 years in Genesis 6:3,
and still further down to 70 similar to what the more medically advanced nations know today. The Holy Scriptures stated in
Psalms 90:10 (score equates to 20 years),
"The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet
is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away."
Something dramatic happened that shortened man's life span so profoundly and it
happened during the worldwide flood of Noah. In the beginning of creation, God placed a blanket of water above our sky and
in the days of Noah he rained it down upon the earth. Surrounding the globe, it would have shielded the world from over 60
major life shortening diseases as well as create a mild tropical paradise, offer perfect air, perfect food, etc., plus protect
creation from harmful mutations caused by the sun's radiation. Keep in mind that nearly all mutations are a product of ultraviolet
rays from the sun.
Let's speak briefly about other
animals in creation like dinosaurs. We know dinosaurs were reptiles and that reptiles NEVER stop growing. The only thing that
limits the size of reptiles is the age limitations. Remember the harmful sun rays that bombard ALL inhabitants of the earth
now affect reptiles as well. With pre-flood conditions under a water canopy, these reptiles would live to be much, much older
and grow to be much, much LARGER!
5. Another result of a water canopy above the expanse or sky would be the
compression of air in the atmosphere or expanse. A layer of ice above the atmosphere would encase the air resulting in compression
due to the fact that air molecules like oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and other elements could NOT escape into outer space.
There was a hard ceiling called the water canopy.
the hard ceiling, much more oxygen and carbon dioxide would be present in the air. This fact is not disputed, yet in is not
explained either. Remember Huber stated in the Purdue University News, "At the same time, it is possible that other forces in addition to
higher-than-normal greenhouse gas concentrations
How is it that the atmosphere
has less oxygen and carbon dioxide today than it had in the past? How was it possible for there to be higher concentrations
than today? The Biblical view of a water canopy has the only explanation for this phenomenon.
One of the reasons that they do not refute this fact is the hard physical evidence
that has been found.
From the website; http://minerals.cr.usgs.gov/gips/na/amber.html
The recent extraction by scientists, of ancient
DNA from organisms entombed in amber much like in the science-fiction novel and movie, Jurassic Park is an example of why
scientists are intensely interested in amber. Minute bubbles of ancient air trapped by successive flows of tree resin during
the life of the tree are preserved in the amber. Analyses of the gases in these bubbles show that the earth s atmosphere,
67 million years ago, contained nearly 35 percent oxygen compared to present levels of 21 percent. Results are based upon
more than 300 analyses by USGS scientists of Cretaceous, Tertiary, and recent-age amber from 16 world sites. The oldest amber
in this study is about 130 million years old.
of an elevated oxygen level during Cretaceous time are speculative. Did the higher oxygen support the now extinct dinosaurs?
Their demise was gradual in the transition from late Cretaceous to early Tertiary times, as was the decrease in oxygen content
of the atmosphere.
There was a major
decrease in oxygen content in the atmosphere from 35 percent to the present day level of 21 percent.
This decrease occurred about the same time that the dinosaurs disappeared--65 million years ago. [End of Quote]
They have the physical evidence but the conclusion is all wrong! They are basing
their conclusion of the time period on the evolutionary paradigm of millions of years. They still have no valid reason for
the change in the makeup of the atmosphere of the distant past.
Did you also notice the statement that the decrease in the oxygen content coincided with the disappearance of the
dinosaurs? The atmosphere changed at the SAME TIME! The Water Canopy Theory based on the Word of God explains this phenomenon
whereby the biblical flood during Noah's time coincides with the destruction of the water canopy. The dinosaurs drowned in
the flood and the atmosphere would drastically change due to the absence of the water canopy.
6. Another result of a water
canopy above the expanse or sky would be the hard ceiling which would cause the air pressure to be substantially greater.
Scientists now believe that the air pressure during the time of the dinosaurs would have had to be about TWICE the levels
of today. Why is this important?
the sheer size and weight of some of the flying reptiles namely Pteranodon and Pterodactyl, would not have
been able to provide enough lift to produce flight. Scientists know that they could not have flown in the present-day atmosphere.
In an atmosphere twice as dense as today's they would have found it very easy to attain flight.
Another reason is that reptiles of enormous size namely dinosaurs could not breathe
in today's atmosphere. The animal's lungs would not be efficient enough to get oxygen to the muscles in their body. For the
real heavyweights of the dinosaur world, the Sauropods and Titanosaurus, their immense size led to their own anatomical problems.
The long necks on the likes of Apatosaurus and Brachiosaurus were too long to reach their lungs. They could not breathe!
To rescue their "theory" of evolution, evolution proponents are now clinging
to another flawed hypothesis that they somehow "evolved" bird-like efficient breathing systems. They cannot substantiate
this guess with any real evidence, but it must be the case in their eyes because they are strapped to the mindset that the
earth is billions of years old, because it has to be old for the evolutionary model to have ground to stand on.
On Wednesday, October 27, 1993, in Boston, MA, U.S.A, the Geological Society of
America held a symposium. The governmental group stated that with the new evidence dinosaurs were not killed off by an asteroid,
but an inability to breathe due to the drastic change in oxygen levels. Their hypothesis was that it was due to a great increase
in volcanic activity. The evidence is right; their hypothesis as to why it happened is again flawed based on their need to
keep their evolutionary model afloat.
The only way
that both flight and breathing could have existed in the time of the dinosaurs or "terrible lizards" is by way of
a drastic difference in the atmospheric makeup. Heavier amounts of breathing elements like oxygen and carbon dioxide along
with much higher air pressure is the only conclusion. Coincidently, plant life all over the globe in the distant past also
happened to be of great size, nothing like today's vegetation. Today's world is a miniature picture of the grandeur of the
time before the Biblical flood and the destruction of the water canopy.
A further example of evidence that supports the Biblical worldview of the increase in the elements in the atmosphere
and the increase in air pressure resulting from the water canopy is the fossilized remains of insects during the distant past.
Insects all over the world have been found to have been much, much larger! Grasshoppers TWO FEET long! Cockroaches over
18 inches long! Spiders with 3 feet long legs! The reason insects are of a much smaller scale today is that fact that they
are limited to their ability to breathe and get oxygen to their extremities. Insects breathe thru spiracles in their skin;
no nostrils. They are limited by the surface-to-area ratio. With more oxygen in the atmosphere and double the pressure the
insects can get more oxygen in their body thus larger body capacity.
Another by-product of the pressurized atmosphere is the ability of enormous sized animals like dinosaurs, giant elephants
and Rhinoceros', and man as well is the astronomical metabolic rate that would have existed in all animals living in those
conditions. Without heightened metabolism rates, large animals like dinosaurs would not have been able eat enough to survive.
Under today's environment, they would NOT be able to consume enough food daily to sustain existence. With higher metabolic
rates, very small amounts of food would have been necessary.
