I don’t know what issue you mean. This doesn’t appear to apply to my post above.
Can you point to any scripture where the author says the world worked differently before the flood?
I look back and realize that an actual historical flood was not the point of the story. Just as the early church fathers did.
You have that backwards. Interpreting the data with no preconceived notion of what the data will say says there was never a global flood.
The truth we see in creation comes from God. A God that does not lie by the way. We can trust what creation tells us.
It it not God’s claim it is your interpretation. A fallible human interpretation.
