Response Article
This article (Pre-flood vapor canopy would have made world Edenic (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.

Claim CH310:

In the pre-Flood earth, the vapor canopy, a translucent layer of water vapor above the atmosphere, caused a greenhouse effect that kept the climate moderate all over the planet, minimized winds and storms, and prevented rainfall.

Source: Vail, Isaac Newton, 1912. The Earth's Annular System, 4th ed. Pasadena: The Annular World Co.

CreationWiki response:

This is an out of date theory. While some creationists are still trying to make it work, most creation scientists have rejected it.

Note that the older reference is dated 1912, this was well before such a model could be tested on a computer. Even the 1974 source predates this ability. So this is simply an out of date theory. The history of science is filled with them.
