  • Because the "great flood" (which is historically recorded by many ancient cultures) only covered the entire area of the then KNOWN world... When someone believes the world ends beyond the horizon, it's easy to believe that a flood could cover everything... Also, at the time period when the Great Flood was meant to have happened... They weren't here yet. However the early Mayans and Aztecs would have been in S.America - and they weren't touched by it...

  • There never was a great flood that covered the earth.

  • The flood never covered the entire earth... it covered the area where Noah lived. There are some indigenous peoples that also have stories of great floods, but there really was no giant flood that covered the entire earth. Noah may or may not have existed, but there could have been a great flood, for that region at least...

  • It didn't cover the entire Earth that is scientifically impossible.

  • According to Genisis 7:21 all flesh died that moved upon the earth.....and every man (mankind). In vs 22 everything died.

  • Ok, so let's say that the flood did cover the whole earth. Noah was said to put two of each animal on the ark. However, how did he get animals that were not native to his region? How do you explain the existance of those animals still today (as well as in Noah's time)?

    The flood was a story, plain and simple. It was telling what God can and would do if need be. There is some historical evidence of a Great Flood in the region that could have been about the time of Noah, but it did not extend over the entire planet.

    Btw, I do believe in the Word of God. But I also believe that there are parables all over the Bible that were told as a way to allow people to better understand things. You cannot and should not take each and every story in the Bible to heart. Many are just there as teachings and examples.
