Nonsense of Noah


6. "The Flood"
THE POINT!
There are about 300 cultures around the world have stories of a massive flood. Christians believe these stories confirm the story of Noah's Ark and a universal flood. Others believe that the stories refer to a local flood that occured approximately 7500 years ago in the Black Sea region.


Genesis

Genesis 6:7


Genesis 6:17 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.





That there are many stories about a monster flood is not even disputed by the < Institute for Creation Research:
