Explained by how. But what the person says it was? The explanation could also be that those who wrote of the great flood, were all ancestors of the family members who passed down the historical fact of that great flood. And even though not all of the facts are exact as what the Bible mentions, the fact that the flood is mentioned from around the world, does leave open that the Bible was correct. Just as it has been for all of the other doubted historical events which have been proven true.
You can believe that someone made such a dam way back then that would have held so much water. This would have been a very monumental challenge for us in our age. And an impossible for one for anyone at that time. .
And please remember that those who are interpreting the evidence that you are accepting. Are those who are denying the Bible’s authority. They interpret what they are seeing, or making up what they are seeing according to their billions of years theory. Where everything is looked at through the “there is no God” lenses, and so of course what is found or what is read, had nothing to do with God.
So now, you have every scientist who claims that there were momentous floods all over the world but that they were all at different times. But these could not have been just one flood?
Why not? Who is to say there wasn’t? Those who refuse to believe what God told us in His Word!!!
And river water does not contain millions of sea life that would be laid onto all of the mountain ranges.
You are not thinking logically. First of all you are not willing to accept that God is real. You would rather believe what man has devised and not what God has given. Even though the evidence points to what He has said.
Even though there are plenty of other scientists who say that their fellow scientists are all wrong about the evidence.
The marine life predicted and well explained? By whom once again. When? After the fact.
And you fail to see the mentioning of the fact that the higher mountains of today, were the then lower mountains of the past. Which would have been covered by the flood, ans which would have been pushed up because of your “admitted, tectonic shifting” making them higher mountains.
In other words, they still would have had to have been under water. And if we take into consideration that these marine fossils are on every mountain range, then either water covered them at one time, and then pushed up. Or they were all covered at different times, and then pushed up. But no one has ever said that there were dispersed floods, all over the earth where sea water flowed and then those specific mountains were formed.
And yes I can presume what you say I can not. For one, it is historical evidence that goes to suggest that it happened, (although the exact nature is in question). And for another there are scientists who claim that it did happen. And they have been awarded their diplomas from the same schools as those who you choose to believe over them.
But the scientists who recognize the flood, are backed by the historical records of may of the civilizations, and by historical recordings of a proven trustworthy document, the Bible.
