It’s interesting to see that scientists are claiming that water came first on earth and then land rose out of it:
Earth was an ancient waterworld until 2.4 billion years ago when land rapidly rose out of the oceans and transformed the planet, experts say.
I seem to have read something like that before:
Genesis 1:9-10: And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
