"The Book of Genesis says of the Flood that 'all the high hills that were under the whole heaven were covered'. Taken literally, this seems to indicate that there were 10,000 to 20,000 feet of water on the surface of the earth, eqiuivalent to more than half a billion cubic miles of liquid! Since, according to biblical accounts, it rained for 40 days and 40 nights, or for only 960 hours, the rain must have fallen at a rate of at least 15 feet per hour."
