    "The theory, known as true polar wander, postulates that if an object of sufficient weight -- such as a supersized volcano -- ever formed far from the equator, the force of the planet’s rotation would gradually pull the heavy object away from the axis the Earth spins around. If the volcanoes, land and other masses that exist within the spinning Earth ever became sufficiently imbalanced, the planet would tilt and rotate itself until this extra weight was relocated to a point along the equator."


    So if something with a lot of mass was in one area of the planet, the 'extra weight' would shift toward the equator, and " force our entire planet to spin on its side"

    The flood water is said to have come from above, with windows of heaven opened to bring the water from the other side of space or the firmament down to the planet.

    They say there is about 321 cubic miles of water in the oceans.

    "According to the U.S. Geological Survey, there are over

    332,519,000 cubic miles

    of water on the planet. A cubic mile is the volume of a cube measuring one mile on each side. Of this vast volume of water, NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center estimates that

    321,003,271 cubic miles

    is in the ocean."


    If there was far far less water before the flood, then we can guesstimate that a lot of this water came from the flood. A lot may have also been taken away after the flood also somehow from earth, so we don't really have any exact figures. Let's just say for example (no I am not claiming this exact number) the flood waters were about 300 cubic miles of water brought onto the planet. Since we know that the source for the water was areas of the sky (also areas on earth that brought water from below) we can probably assume that hundreds or thousands of millions of cubic miles of water came from each of these spots. (fountains of the deep and the windows in the sky).

    As an example we could have 12 windows of heaven and 12 founts of the deep that brought in 300 million cubic miles of water from the flood! So 300 divided by 24 is about 12.5. So each of these founts or windows of heaven brought in, in this example, 12.5 million cubic miles of water!

    Now a large volcano in Hawaii is about 2000 sq miles apparently.

    "largest active volcano on Earth, Mauna Loa in Hawaii, which measures about 2,000 square miles (5,200 square kilometers)."


    The question comes to mind that if we had hundreds of millions of cubic MILES of water suddenly on earth, that may have forced the entire planet to spin 'on it's side'!
