The only problem I see is, there is a finite amount of water in the world. Once all the ice is melted, is the water level going to be that high?

I don't know.  the guy said there were big tidal waves, monsters that flooded the coasts and even inland to the point that the bigger valleys became salt water lakes.  after the initial surge retreated.  some of the lower islands and coastal plains stayed underwater.

 

of course it's just a book and based on mystical science, so the world would call it fantasy.  just something i like to think about.

 

i read somewhere that if larger parts of the polar caps melt off and slam into the water hard enough it would trigger tsunamis.  but i'm no scientist and can't live in fear, just kind of wonder about that stuff, the earth is a pretty interesting subject imo

Most of the ice in the world isn't in the water, ie glaciers, South polar cap, Greenland.

It's because of that i am no scientist, i just can't argue or debate or whatever it is called.  i'm just repeating what i read in a book that most of the scientific world would mock. 

in college i noticed the "doctor professors" and "scientists" were arguing with each other all the time, back stabbing on theories, and nothing ever got done other than they got promoted to full professor, tenure, etc.  that's why i'm into machines and not academia, just too political.

 

anyway this is the book Spiritwalker by Hank Wesselmann.  i liked this one, part of a trilogy, it raised a lot of good questions and hope for the future imo (better than nuclear war) but the next book bogged down so i never read the third, good luck
