Wow! Well lets look at the numbers folks.

1) Could a comet change Earth's orbit?
Well depends on the size of the comet. Perhaps if it 1/4 the size of earth. But that isn't very likely.

2) The global flood?
Well, what controls the earth's orbit? Its distance from the sun. The earth's velocity around the sun is based strictly and really only on its distance from the sun. So the question is how could a local event on earth effect how far the earth was from the sun? The answer? Short of blowing up the earth, nothing could.
