- - - and the evening and the morning were the 2nd Day (Monday)


Genesis 1:6-7 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and

let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the

waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the

firmament: and it was so.

In the early Earth the Bible clearly indicates God inserted an Atmosphere between two

bodies of water. In the vacuum of SPACE, liquid water converts to the gaseous state.

Even solid ICE, such as that found in comets, begins to convert to the gaseous state as it

approaches the SUN; even in orbit positions further out than Earth's orbit. Thus,

water above the atmosphere would naturally exist in the gaseous state, perfectly 

transparent. But how would it stay above the atmosphere? Water (H2O) has an atomic

mass of 18 which is significantly less than the primary gases of the atmosphere Nitrogen

(N2) and Oxygen (O2), 28 and 32 respectively. Like Helium, gaseous water would rise to

the top due to its significantly lighter weight and remain there unless particulate matter

(dust) and temperature should trigger condensation into liquid droplets. The fact that

water above the atmosphere does not now exist can be explained by the Biblical

account of the flood where, for forty days and nights, the windows of heaven were

opened and rain, such as never seen before or after, poured profusely from the sky.


Since water has a refractive index, it bends light. Thus, in the primitive earth, additional

amounts of radiation would be bent toward the polar regions creating a warm climate from

pole to pole.

Benefits of a water canopy would include the filtering out of much of the ultra-violet

radiation which is detrimental to human and animal life. It would also trap some of the

infra-red radiation that is today lost into space. A gentle, globally warm climate, might

have provided for abundantly plush plant life beyond anything we have on earth today. A

near perfect environment would have made life on earth flourish and provided for optimal

health capable of sustaining even the giant forms of life documented in the fossil record.




British Antarctic Survey

"Whereas today we see Antarctica as a cold, inhospitable desert, in past geological time,

the climate was once much warmer. In earlier geological periods, abundant finds of fossil

leaves and wood point to the existence of extensive forestation, even to within a few

degrees of latitude of the South Pole itself. Dinosaurs, and later, marsupial mammals

roamed across its surface."


The Biblical model of primitive earth with gaseous water above the atmosphere provides

an explanation of how life on the South Pole could have supported tropical vegetation and

large animals feeding on a plush fauna.
