This is the successor thread to the original Solving the Mystery of the Biblical Flood thread, which was closed only because it had become so long. Long threads have high overhead when rebuilding the HTML pages. Here is a link to the last page.

The discussion in this thread should address wmscott's views. There are other threads for discussing TB's views.

There is indeed a bug in the code for generating URLs. I know what the bug is, and I know how to fix the links in wmscott's message, and I will fix both the bug and the links later this weekend if possible.

I fixed the bug and the broken links in WmScott's post. This bug goes all the way back to the original UBB code. The old code inserted a linefeed every 180 characters if there wasn't any intervening whitespace. Naturally this is a bad idea for URLs.
The bug was only fixable for UBB codes. This is because I added UBB code parsing subroutines last fall, and so moving the truncation to this routine was easy. There is no HTML parsing code at present, and so URLs inserted with HTML instead of UBB codes are still limited to 180 characters.

Reopening This Thread
I'm reopening this thread by request. I closed it because of lack of activity, but I would have left it open anyway had it not been that discussion seems to have become stuck, with all parties having already aired their views, and with what is happening now a mere rehash of previously stalemated points, and with the last parts of the discussion having little to do with the original topic.
If there is anything original left to be said on this topic then post it here, but the last part of the discussion about the influence of religious beliefs on scientific interpretation probably belongs in a thread in the Faith and Belief forum.
Lastly, I shouldn't be moderating my own threads, but hopefully this is fairly neutral.

Randy's note that this thread is for WmScott's flood perspectives as described in his book by the same title as this thread is accurate, but you're more than welcome to open another thread in this forum to discuss your own views.

Topic Drift Alert!
This thread is for discussion of the ideas presented in Wm. Scott Anderson's book, Solving the Mystery of the Biblical Flood. YEC ideas about the Grand Canyon have their own threads, eg, The Grand Canyon: Canyon Formation and Erosion, or a new thread can be opened.

Re: Part 2 of 2 Parts
I've been considering having a "Post of the Month" award, but I wanted to make voting automatic via clicking on a link, rather than sending email or posting a message to a thread. You would be able to vote for as many posts as you like, but you would never be able to vote for the same post more than once, and you couldn't vote for your own posts.
But that's in the future - I don't have any coding time available right now. In the meantime, for those who would like to participate in a less automated "Post of the Month" I'll start up a thread each month in Suggestions. I'll add the "March Post of the Month" thread in a couple minutes.
