I thought years ago they said it was found on a mountain some place. Who really knows. With God all things can happen. (((He don't need to prove his self.))) If you must prove it, it wont be proven, because that isn't what he wanted.

I can't believe that in the age of science and reason, people actually still believe in the great flood. It's like believing in the tooth fairy and the easter bunny.

yeah, most people aren't that educated about history. They do assume it was the entire planet, but it was only that small area.

Otherwise instead of Adam & Eve we'd all be seeing Noah's family as the first humans. And it is illogical to think that "then" unknown creatures from North and South America and Antartica somehow got to the Middle East without any transport in record time.

People don't think about that stuff.

BTW DROP - I agree with you.

It depends on who is doing the documentary.

Ive seen documentaries that state the great flood did indeed happen, and a few that said its impossible. Depends on the person who is giving said documentary. People could go back n forth with this one till eternity.

as far as the ark being made out of pitch and wood and not being able to float, God shut the door of that ark. He sealed them all inside. Tada...if He did that, you can bet he made sure it was floatable.

The animals on the ark. You, me and the guy down the street really have no idea how many animals were all in the ark. What matters is God said take such and such animals, Noah did.

Again, if God sealed the door to the ark and was powerful enough to keep it afloat, then all the animals that were supposed to be on there, were. They all fit because he made sure they fit.

We sometimes get ourselves so worked up over the math part of things and the things we can grasp as humans, that we forget God is all powerful. Dont try to overanalyze and take apart what you are not supposed to fully understand in the first place. This is where your faith comes in . Either you read the bible for what it is and apply it, or you read it and spend your time constantly trying to pick it apart and missing the message altogether.

My opinion is quite simple as, I don't believe ANYTHING that's in the Bible since, there is no PROOF anywhere to demonstrate ir being true and real.

But that's just me

I think the flood and the storm came on the people of prophet Nooh alone. I think it was area specific.


You would be right. When the bible was written they didn't know about australia or the america continent. thus the specie of human inhabiting were not reffered to.
The flood spoken about was one over persia.back then that was the whole world to the those people
if you look at the scale of flooding queensland recently had, it was a massive massive area. probably as big as the world that existed to those who wrote bible back in the day.

After all over 1 thousand years later they still thought the world flat.
