The narrator is highly flattering when he says we know 5 per cent of what lies underwater. I was thinking more like .oo1; even that would be generous. So in connection with water water everywhere, we read this:
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.
And the waters PREVAILED, and were INCREASED greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.
And the waters PREVAILED EXCEEDINGLY upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.
Uh oh. And yet we are so quick to dismiss that in which we are clueless while we pretend to be authorities of such things. Quite interesting that we modernists have latched onto that ancient word ‘the deep,’ without reference to He who created the greatest playground in the world. And btw, it has been discovered recently that in the very deepest part of the waters, there are fountains resembling springs. Who woulda thought? Enjoy.
