Re: Chocking Noah after he has been choked on H2SO4

I was asked privately why the volcanics needed to go off during the flood.
Here is an explanation:

The young-earth creationists believe that the entire fossiliferous rocks
are the result of the flood. The volcanic rocks are sandwiched between
them like:

flood deposited sandstone with few fossils
volcanic ash
flood deposited shale with fossils
flood deposited limestone with fossils

That the basalt and ash must occur during the flood also. To me the
young-earth creationists must account for ALL the volcanism in the
Phanerozoic during that single year. The noxious gases and volatiles
coming out of the lavas would surely choke the occupants of the ark.
