Why didnt God just take out Adam & Eve and start again?
Obviously sin started with them right?
If Adam & Eve could not refrain from giving in to sin, how did God think the rest of the world would in time?!!!
Why flood the entire earth that was full of sinful people, when he could have nipped it in the bud with adam & eve!!
should this be seen as a mistake on Gods part?

The Biblical flood story is not the first. There are other, more ancient versions. Here is the oldest documented one (notice the parallels to the Bible story which came thousands of years LATER): http://www.historywiz.com/flood.htm
Good question about Adam and Eve... the only think I can think of is that God didn't foresee how 'sinful' the world would become and that leads me to conclude that he is NOT all-knowing and all-powerful.
