Dear Cheryl, Dr. Bouw has done some work on this, because the system he advocates requires a rotating World. Off the top of my head, I seem to remember that he calculated that the World would need to be gradually slowed to a standstill over 40 or 45 minutes, to avoid the oceans flooding the entire land mass. Dr. Bouw's position is wrong, so your (and his) beloved KJV can be saved from the dustbin. The Bible tells us that the World does not rotate - and even the atheists can see that. Neville.

You offered other proofs as well. From what I've read on other sites, the scriptures in Joshua prove a static earth. If the earth is in fact rotating, that means my KJV Bible (that "holy men of old wrote as they were moved by the Holy Ghost") is not to be trusted; and I may as well just throw it in the trash. --------------------------------- ALL-NEW Yahoo!
