Words of Comfort: Oceans & Comets.


I believe that God created the oceans and all the sea creatures that are in them: “So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind…” (Genesis 1:21).

Approximately 70% of the earth is covered in water, so I took a camera to a university and asked a professor (a marine biologist) where the water came from. He said that the possibility was that the ocean came from space in the form of comets. So I asked him where the 28,000 different species of fish came from. Up until that point he was friendly, but the question seemed to offend him. He then put his hand over the lens and ended the interview. Apparently he didn’t know where the fish (or the oceans) came from.

So if you believe the oceans came from comets, can you tell me where whales, dolphins, porpoises, plus the 28,000 different species of fish came from? I don’t want links to rabbit trails (I will delete those). I want you to tell me in your own words--do you believe that there was life in the rocks/soil waiting for water to come from space? Did the fish come on comets? Or, like the professor, you don’t know?
