What in the world makes you think that?!?

Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; and no man ever had a distinct idea of the trinity. It is the mere Abracadabra of the mountebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus. -- Thomas Jefferson
For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus -- and non-believers. -- Barack Obama
We see monsters where science shows us windmills. -- Phat
It has always struck me as odd that fundies devote so much time and effort into trying to find a naturalistic explanation for their mythical flood, while looking for magical explanations for things that actually happened. -- Dr. Adequate

It really helps moderators figure out if a topic is disintegrating because of general misbehavior versus someone in particular if the originally non-misbehaving members kept it that way. When everyone is prickly and argumentative and off-topic and personal then it's just too difficult to tell. We have neither infinite time to untie the Gordian knot, nor the wisdom of Solomon.
There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.

Let's approach this from a different angle. What type of geologic feature could the flood NOT produce? Can you describe a single one?
1) It would not produce a climate as warm as pre-flood.
2) It would not produce the same atmosphere, given the volumn of water to accomodate a flood of this magnitude.
3) It would not produce the same elements in the atmosphere of a pre-flood planet which is implicatied due to the volumn of H2O in play
4) It would not produce the same sun rays on the planet as post flood.
5) It would not produce relative uniformity in calculating dating methodology nor would it produce acurate dating data of present dating methodology used.
6) It would not produce similar weather as pre-flood.
7) It would not produce a rainbow-less atmosphere.
8) It would not produce as long a life as that of a warmer uniform atmosphere which filtered out less healthy sun rays.
9) It would not produce as level a planet surface as pre-flood.
10) It would not produce small shallower oceans as would be pre-flood.
11) It would not produce warm polar regions void of ice.
12) It would not produce large continents compared to pre-flood.
13) It would not produce nearly (by far) as little carbon on the planet and it's atmosphere, due to volcanic eruptions, etc.
14. It would not produce the same sub-terrain as pre-flood.
These are a few examples of what it would not produce. Taq. Thanks for asking. I see you got a well deserved fiver for that.

How would the flood cause all the dating methods to be wrong and yet still agree with eachother? show your math.
edit: you can provide your evidence for this assertion in another thread

Doc, all methods assume a relative uniform planet. I would assume that perhaps all forms would be skewed, though I'm not able to confirm.

At best, topic needs a fresh start...
and a clearly defined theme and a good topic title that reflects that them.
Closing down.
