God's creation overwhelmingly tells us that the flood did not cover the entire planet.

I'm not a YEC, but this statement does not follow from anything else you said.

@Sloth.

Sorry, but there's just not enough space to repudiate the science against a world-wide flood, not to mention the various meanings of the Hebrew word eretz. Here is a good start from a Christian perspective and here is another.

I can go into further detail regarding the amount of heat and erosion that would be generated by a planet-wide flood, but that kind of research is easy to find using Google. Suffice it to say that, assuming a planet-wide flood, Noah's ark would have been floating in boiling wather and we would not find the nice, neat, species-matching sedimentary layers that we see all over the world.
