How much water is below the surface of the ocean? Seven-ish years ago, a team leader at Los Alamos by the name of Mike Houts told me they had discovered the ocean had ten to one-hundred times more water below it, than above it. An incredible figure to me. I haven't heard of this before or since, from any other source than Mike, so I thought I'd ask you guys.
One, it makes this verse appear quite literal "the wellsprings of the great deep burst forth." -Genesis 7:11
And two, it certainly provides enough water for a world-wide flood if God (for the sake of argument) not only existed... but had the power to bring such water to the surface. Regardless of the amount of ice available... there would be enough. I was just wondering if anyone had heard of this at all.

Well, I know I didn't mis-hear and I doubt he misspoke. Likely, it was another scientist's findings that either haven't been listened to, or have since been disproved and/or changed since Mike was talking about it 7 years ago. A lot of what we talked about were discussions among scientists and what this guy or that woman was studying/finding etc... -not necessarily stuff that had been formally established at the time.
Thanks for the info!
