Response Article
This article (Flood from vapor canopy (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.


Claim CH401:

A "vapor canopy" (water vapor above the troposphere) was the source for much of the flood waters.

Source: Morris, Henry M., 1974. Scientific Creationism, Green Forest, AR: Master Books, pp. 124-125,210-211.


CreationWiki response:

This is an outdated theory that most creation scientists have long since abandoned. This a good case of creation science in action as a true science. When this theory was first proposed, there was no real way of testing its validity. However, things like this can now be modeled on computers. Creation scientists checked it and found it was unworkable and for the most part have abandoned it. This is supported by the fact that Talk Origins uses a creationist source as a reference.

There are some who still hold to it and are trying to make it work, but that too is typical of science in action.
