comment How could animals have gotten all around the world after the flood?
The whole earth is always covered with tectonic plates. Even when there is a single continent, there are tectonic plates under the ocean. Hence, for the tectonic plates of a single supercontinent to drift apart, there has to be a tectonic plate being pushing under another, to make room. In other words, I'm not sure what Pangaea would be "floating" on, in your analogy. Take care and welcome to the Christianity Stack Exchange.

The land is denser than water (otherwise, land would float). So land would provide more pressure than the same amount of water. In other words, when all the land is covered in water, the land underneath a mountain would have much more pressure than land at the same elevation, but covered only under the water. I think you might also be underestimating the effects of the earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes (and the corresponding ash that would black out the sun) that would result from that much tectonic activity over 100 years, without heavy divine intervention.

revised Is it a sin or forbidden to follow any of the parts of the Law of Moses?

@H3br3wHamm3r81 I've modified my question so that, hopefully, it is clear that it does not depend on the authenticity of the Pericope Adulterae. After thinking of your response more, I'm unsure about your stance and I would appreciate your clarification. Do you agree with the other passages (like Rom 10:4) that say that we are no longer bound to parts of the Old Testament? I'm guessing that you believe that we are not forbidden to follow any of the Old Testament laws, even if we are no longer bound to them? Thanks!

@Narnian I tried to clarify that I'm asking whether there are any laws, including those classified as ceremonial, which are not only not applicable, but forbidden (or sinful). In other words, I'm asking if there are cases where "does not apply" means "forbidden".

Trying to clarify so that the distinction between ceremonial and moral law are not required.

@Narnian interesting view. I have a difficult time accepting that the Bible is still telling us that we should be fulfilling those laws of Deuteronomy. Anyways, your comment seems answer-worthy. Perhaps you should promote it?
