10. fair enough, you're right in some respects.
i'm just saying what the book says. in Uriel's Machine, there is explanation for a "flood" that is at least continent wide due to a comet/meteor strike, (tsunamis and tidal surges). a'course that's not the only thing the book says, there's much more, but it does explain why comets (and tsunamis) are seen as an omen of terrible import in many places across the world. (something else not generally talked about is that we really don't know just how skilled ancient people were at various sciences (astronomy, architecture, navigation, cartography, etc))
something else is that a comet or small meteor could create a horrible tsunami, on par with something created by an earthquake. even a small one could wreck an area, considering population density at ocean shores.

with regards to your question "where did all the water go?", remember that there are accurate maps of antarctica (beneath the ice cap) that are rather old, so one must ask just how old the ice actually is there. just a theory, but a fairly good one.
