ASV mark on Genesis 7:11-12,15-16,24 and questions

The beginning of the flood

It burst open

How can we understand this; “All the fountains of the great deep burst open”. It could be that in the center of the earth there was a huge amount of water, called the great deep and God made it burst open for it to flood out, it says that it burst open, that could mean that the water that streamed out is no longer there.

Infinite amount of water

And then we have; “The windows and floodgates of the heavens were opened” The water above those windows and floodgates could be in the heavens outside the universe, above the firmament and it seems that God opened those windows and gates for the water to flood down like heavy, heavy rain. Then after 40 days, He closed them and it could be that in this “room” there is an infinite amount of water for use when needed.

Questions

  1. Where is the great deep, which God talks about?
  2. How did God flood the earth?

The flood lasted

Breath of life

All the living went in two by two, in which there were the breath and spirit of life; there are spirits in animals and God can communicate with them, but they too can disobey God, and possessed by evil spirits.

Animals in heaven

Seven pairs of clean animals went into the wooden box, and one pair of unclean and crawling things and God picked all of them and led them to the ark. In the ark, there were no evil spirits.  The spirit of life is in animals and it seems likely that we will have animals in heaven.

40 days and 150 days

When the flood started it rained for forty days until the water covered the earth completely, 23 feet above the highest mountain peak, and then the water stayed like that for 150 days before it started to decline.

Questions

Can God talk to his creation?

Is there spirit in animals?
