is it lack of knowledge of what that would mean to the planet and what would be required?
a lack of knowledge of world history (the other cultures that existed then)?
Ignorance of how things work in the world make believing in religious tales a lot easier, it seems. If you have that knowledge it creates a seed of doubt, and they don't want that.

Because the world was 'smaller' back then and a flood in one big area could ealiy be seen as a 'world flood' because that's all the world they thought existed. On a side note- the Noah flood story is NOT the oldest and therefore not the correct version. It was taken probably from the ancient Sumerian flood myth, embellished, changed slightly and presented as something true and unique which it's not.
