Bible: 2 Peter 3:3-6
3:3 Above all, understand this: 1 In the last days blatant scoffers 2 will come, being propelled by their own evil urges 3 3:4 and saying, 4 “Where is his promised return? 5 For ever since 6 our ancestors 7 died, 8 all things have continued as they were 9 from the beginning of creation.” 3:5 For they deliberately suppress this fact, 10 that by the word of God 11 heavens existed long ago and an earth 12 was formed out of water and by means of water. 3:6 Through these things 13 the world existing at that time was destroyed when it was deluged with water.
