Often in talking to Evolutionists, they like to pooh-pooh the idea that there is enough water on this planet to ever cover the whole earth. I always ask them to take a globe, and think for a minute about what all that blue color means, as 71% of the earth is covered with water. Also, the mountains on the earth would fit comfortably in the deepest trenches in the oceans.
I’ve read somewhere that if you flattened out all the mountains on the land, it would just take around 100 feet (meters?) of water to cover 100% of the planet.
Anyway, we can read in inspired writings that there were jets of water that came out of the earth at the time of Noah’s Flood. They had tremendous force, and hurled huge rocks high up into the air. Personally, I think they might have even created comets and blasted pockmarks on the moon etc., but am not sure about that at all, as 95% of the craters on the moon face earth.
So it is interesting to see that scientists are finding more and more clues that there are huge amounts of water far under the crust in places and forms that they thot couldn’t exist. Here is one science news article showing that ice was found in a diamond. They estimate the diamond came from 500 miles or so down (that’s highly speculative), and it includes ice with a new atomic structure, so they have named it Ice-VII. Seems our ordinary ice is now called Ice-I – ha!

Another article says
A reservoir of water three times the volume of all the oceans has been discovered deep beneath the Earth’s surface. The finding could help explain where Earth’s seas came from.
