Hi Bill, you wrote:

Remember, the Hebrew word har can be translated either "mountains" or
"hills." The King James translators were laboring under the prevailing
misinterpretation that the flood was universal. So they skewed the
translation in that direction. Thus earth vs. land and mountains vs.
hills were selected with this presumptive bias.
