I was just watching a video on the History Channel website, but it was saying that scientists don't know where the water came from (the oceans). The video featured a scientist who said that he thinks it was brought here from extra-terrestrials (through meteors which are 5% water).
Then the water from the meteors evaporated and formed huge rainclouds
They say that it then it rained for MILLIONS of years, straight ---- And that is where the oceans came from (4.2 billion years ago)
Not all scientists believe this. What do you think?

it rained for millions of years? Well the only way that could happen is if the forces of God made it happen.
It couldn't possibly be because the earth was superheated when it was formed and constantly letting of steam in the form of assorted gases that kept the atmosphere moving and filled with released water. That couldn't possibly be it, even though it's precisely how the atmosphere functions over rainforests where it rains 365 days a year today.
