Creationist models are often criticized for being too vague to have any predictive value. A literal interpretation of the Flood story in Genesis, however, does imply certain physical consequences which can be tested against what we actually observe, and the implications of such an interpretation are investigated below. Some creationists provided even more detailed models, and these are also addressed (see especially sections 5 and 7).

Stop and think, do you believe this should be in science or religion?

Well, the article is mainly both; though it attacks religion. I put it in science because there is a ton of science in the article

When I read "global flood" in the Bible I honestly always just thought about Mesopotamia flooding because that was the whole world at the time.

That's just me though.

Until proponents of the flood can find enough water to cover the continents there really is no argument. The vapor canopy proposal was finally given up on back in the late 80's early 90's. Even answersingenesis advises creationists to quit using it.

Many places have had great floods in history. The Bible story probably just puts the stories together as if it were one event.

And, yes, all the Creationist stuff should be under "religion.' It's a conflict between religion and science, not a scientific issue.
