Genesis 7: 10 "And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth. 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights." 18 "And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters. 19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered. 20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered." 23 "And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark. 24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days." Then chapter 8: 2 "The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;" First we see that the windows of heaven opened and that is of course the Canopy Theory. That a canopy surrounded the original earth and that it was punctured and the deluge came down from heaven. But what we see too is that the fountains of the great deep were broken up. Now question what would cause the fountains of the deep to open? Could it have been a shift upon the axis? Otherwise a great earthquake and you would think that Noah would have spoken of such a great earthquake and Moses would have recorded it. But it the earth shifted on its axis what would that have caused? When the fountains opened up what would that do the earth's continental plates? Would a shift on its axis have caused this?
