New Evidence For Oceans of Water Deep In the Earth 190

techtech (2016646) writes Researchers from Northwestern University and the University of New Mexico report evidence for potentially oceans worth of water deep beneath the United States. Though not in the familiar liquid form—the ingredients for water are bound up in rock deep in the Earth's mantle—the discovery may represent the planet's largest water reservoir. This research was published in Science.

    What isn't "contrivocerial" is that you are an idiot.

    If you had an ounce of critical thinking skills (or had even bothered to read the article), you would realize that hydroxyl radicals pervasively bound up in mineral deposits that are hundreds of millions of years old in no way support the idea of an imaginary flood that allegedly occurred 6000 years ago before being written about by semi-ltierate Bronze Age goat herders.

    Go thump your bible elsewhere, and retake 3rd grade spelling while you are at it.

    You all keep using that word. I do not think that word means what you think it means.

    For all of you who think you can drill down and suck some of this out - it's several hundred KILOMETERS (that's a unit of measure, common in the rest of the world - think of it as something like half a mile) down. It's NOT liquid.

    You can't have it, no matter how much you want it.

    "but one of the many arguments to refute the Ark story being true is that there wasn't enough water to flood the Earth."

    Really? Trying to claim that ommnipotent GOD didn't have enough water to do something? If GOD is so GODLY as religious people say there didn't even have to be flood "for real". God could have just moved everything into new position, altered everyones memories, and there, a big flood just happened without any "real" water at all. When discussing what GOD can or cannot do you might as well be discussing if unicorn can fly or not. It kinda depends how you want to imagine them. Same with GOD. Refuting some bible stories is just bloody stupid, refute Lord of the Rings instead, you'll have more fun, and the opponents don't hopefully actually take it seriously enough to be mental patients if their delusion was anything but GOD.

    There you have it, folks, another tolerant Slashdot mind!

    You're absolutely right!

    People, please, when you're writing in Slashdot, try to make an effort to respect the opinions of retards and trolls.

Always leave room to add an explanation if it doesn't work out.
