Interesting point about olive trees. Sure they are hardy trees but.
my point would be that if the world was totally covered in water such
that the highest mountains were covered
then wouldn't the "olive trees" be out of sunlight for more than a year?
That would make them more than hardy trees wouldn't you think?
Whoops, my email on the flood of 2900 vs the biblical flood got sent
Let me simply add that I do not believe it can be proven or even be
stated with probability that if covered by water for a year, all olive
trees would be so dead that none could send out shoots. They are
extremely hardy trees and well known for their sending forth of shoots.
As for Nephilim, if the word means "giants," I see no reason why some of
the descendants of Noah genertions later could not be significantly
taller than the majority of men.
