    Again: The burden of proof remains with the claimant!

    Further evidence.....

    https://northernwoodlands.org/outsid...atop_mountains
    there is evidence of long-ago ocean life embedded in the limestone at Everest’s summit: fossils, including those of crinoids, ancient underwater animals with tentacles and cone-shaped shells. These fossils are found at 29,000 feet because the highest point on Earth was once under sea
    https://www.nytimes.com/1987/03/12/u...-from-sea.html
    Scientists have found fossils of whales and other marine animals in mountain sediments in the Andes, indicating that the South American mountain chain rose very rapidly from the sea
    And https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polystrate_fossil



    BTW I am able to find creationist counter-arguments for just about every objection against the Flood or YEC.... it took a former creationist (Ed Babinski) to deconvert me, then I became an atheist for a long time...

    Modern YECs can solve the problem about incest.... while allowing Cain to have a wife....
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incest_in_the_Bible
    Leviticus 18:9 says not to have sexual relations with your sister and Cain's wife would be his sister....

    YECs believe that incest was eventually outlawed in Moses' time because it had become a problem. Cain and his sister wouldn't be a problem because their DNA had no mutations. By Moses' time there would be a lot of mutations and incest is a problem because it is more likely that both people would have the same mutations.

    Apparently the "where did Cain get his wife?" question is one of the most common YEC questions and I think it has a very good explanation.... though it is only in modern times that the whole mutation explanation became possible...

    People where I live are all flocking to see the Noah’s Ark replica in KY and then coming home and going on and on about it. I have to bite my tongue.
