Video: "Earth Electric | Deep Quakes, Electric-Magnetic-Kinetic"

Although the narrator doesn't make any connection between the mechanism described here and the flood of Noah, that is where my thoughts strayed. "In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened." (Genesis 7:11). To me, this provides a possible mechanism to explain from where the water came (and to where it went back) without involving an impactor. The phrase "windows of heaven" is sort of interesting because the word for "window"--arubbah--is rarely used to refer to windows as we would think of the term. Instead, it seems to mean a hole or holes, and is used to refer to a lattice, a chimney, a dove-cot (because of the holes), and a sluice. The phrase is also used in Malachi 3:10 where the Lord outlines one of the few times we are permitted to test Him: "Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it." In other words, the Lord appears to be comparing the blessing as comparable, in terms of size or volume, to the Great Flood. I presume that the blessing is not necessarily one that we will enjoy in this life, but in eternity (see, e.g., Mark 12:41-44 and Luke 21:1-4 for the story of the Widow's mite).
