Earth’s atmosphere

Continuing with our weather unit, the space shuttle was a hot topic due to recent events, so I took advantage of it as we had been discussing what the atmosphere may have been like in the days of Noah.  A paper written by my father on Noah and the flood included some fascinating verses quoted from the Bible helping us understand where ALL THAT WATER CAME FROM? We discovered that the atmosphere prior to the flood was quite different and full of moisture – fascinating.
