    I was watching a show on Discovery about Biblical diasters and it talked about the flood. They presented a few different views and it got me to wondering what everyone believes about this event.

    Yes there was the flood and if you read the word the next will be fire.
    Science has shown the flood actually existed and I believe, to the others look at the evidence simple stupid.

    If there wasn't a flood why can we find fossels of sea creatures on top of Mt. Magazine?

    Scietific evidence shows proof of many Bilbe accounts. This is why if you go to the Smithsonian Museum you will find the Bible also listed as a history book, not just a religious document. Further proof.

    My philosophy go with the Bible instead of watching and believing any show, newsarticle, or story teller about biblical facts and occurances.

    A good book on this subject is The Genesis Flood by Whitcomb and Morris. Whitcomb is a geologist and Morris is a theologian. I will reinforce your belief in a flood.

    The grand canyon has been said to have been created by a little water over millions of years. Recently some scientist conceded that it could have been created over a few weeks with lots and lots of water.
     
  12. As far as I'm concerned, The Bible account is 100% true.

    If you believe the story of the flood then do you also believe that there was an arc with all those critters?

    Lets see...the bible says 'God said let there be...and it was so'. So God was able to take chaos and turn it into order. The account of the flood states that at that time there was no rain but a mist rose up from the ground to give water and when the flood happened 'were all the fountains of the great deep broken up and the windows of heaven were opened' so water came out of the ground as well as down from the sky. It also says there was enough food to sustain the people and animals on the ark and that the animals went in by twos and sevens. It just doesn't add up does it. It also doesn't add up that even though we curse God and disbelieve that he still loves us and cares for us.

    This is the same God who took 5 loaves and two fishes and fed the multitude, the same God who called life back into dead bodies, who put fingers, ears and noses back on leporous bodies, who formed man out of clay and breathed into him the breath of life. Why can't he fit however many animals into an ark and feed them with two bales of hay and a cup of water?

    For those who believe no explaination is needed, for those who believe not no explaination is possible.

    Go to the petrefied forest and see the trees lying flat, sticking out the hillsides, it brings it all home.

    --It's gotta be true. One reason is the universality of the Flood in stories told by many different cultures all over the world. It didn't just flood for ancient Hebrews, you know, it flooded for everybody!

    I'd be more inclined to believe that the "flood" was in fact tidal waves caused by crustal displacement.

    That's what the Sumerians tell us. The Hebrews simply stole their stories, changed the names, and claimed them as their own.
