Your arrogance is outrageous.
Should you, who embraces the "agree to disagree" formula would do some checking you would see that the prophet was speaking of Genesis, not "a couple of thousand years after the flood."
Again David speaks of Genesis...Psa 104:3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters; Who maketh the clouds his chariot; Who walketh upon the wings of the wind;
Psa 104:4 Who maketh winds his messengers; Flames of fire his ministers;
Psa 104:5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, That it should not be moved for ever.
Psa 104:6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a vesture; The waters stood above the mountains.
Psa 104:7 At thy rebuke they fled; At the voice of thy thunder they hasted away
Psa 104:8 (The mountains rose, the valleys sank down) Unto the place which thou hadst founded for them.
Psa 104:9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; That they turn not again to cover the earth.
Psa 104:10 He sendeth forth springs into the valleys; They run among the mountains;
I say back to you your own words, " Whatever basis you pick and choose.." I agree with the Word and agree with the Word and I am afraid it maybe your nose wringing within theology of its rhetoric. I do not disagree, I say you are in error.
Gen 1:6 And God saith, `Let an expanse be in the midst of the waters, and let it be separating between waters and waters.'
Gen 1:7 And God maketh the expanse, and it separateth between the waters which are under the expanse, and the waters which are above the expanse: and it is so.
In my understanding there was a flood, a flood for His purpose, it was not and did not need to be a global flood. imo.
What did a global flood or even a local flood accomplish?
My reasoning and wonder, Gen 6:6 And it repented Jehovah that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
Gen 6:7 And Jehovah said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the ground; both man, and beast, and creeping things, and birds of the heavens; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
And yet when the flood subsided and Noah with his sons were instructed to replenish, all that the flood was to have disposed of, emerged just as before and men began to be just as they were.
Do you believe Gow would go back on His Word?
Jer 5:22 Fear ye not Me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at My presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual (which can mean, any more or at any time) decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?
Oh, with one exception, with Noah's flood they passed anywhere they wanted to go. They defied all of God's decrees and declaration and commandments?
I say No.
