GREAT FLOOD - Our comfort as humans here on Earth is not what's most
important to the God of the Bible. Life on Earth in this temporary biological
form is a time for our learning and testing. Some of us are born with more
"talents" than others. The fact that "life is not fair" is a given in this
fallen world. To our Creator human muscular strength, mental intelligence
and external beauty are but as important in the long run as great leaves,
thick bark and plentiful roots on a plant. If they don't lead to producing
the fruits of the spirit then they're for naught.
Human learning and testing, not our comfort and security, are the important
things to the Owner of this planet. We were placed here for a reason. You
and I choose each day whether to forgive and how best to build up others.
This is true for every society, for each person, down through time. But
the whole "crop" went bad at about 1600 years into human history. Many
of the over 200 flood traditions from around the world still recall that
violence among men filled the Earth leading to God's judgment of the Great
The Flood of Noah was not merely regional. If one walked at 3 MPH for
10 hours a day (so 30 miles in 1 day) for 10 days then he or she would
go 300 miles (500 km). Noah could have moved to a different valley if it
was only a regional flood that God was preparing. "Noah's Wagon" would
have then been a better vehicle than a 450 foot long carefully constructed
Ark. (text by P.A.)
1998, naturalists William Ryan and Walter Pitman made a bold proposal that 7,500 years ago the Black
Sea Basin was quickly and catastrophically filled by marine water, creating a multicultural diaspora later
recorded in the Bible as Noah’s Flood ... Young-earth creationists ... Sea of Marmara. This water
continued moving farther north and overtopped the Bosporus Sill where it catastrophically flowed several
hundred feet down into the Black Sea Basin ... vertical movement and related age of the chemocline layer ...

to Bible-believing Christians, rainbows hold a great testimony to the glorious creativity of the Lord God ...
horizontal light rays from the sun strike the upper portion of a spherical water droplet, they are bent by
refraction and then reflected internally within the droplet, exiting at an approximate deviation of 138
degrees from their original direction ... exiting at an angle of about 232 degrees ... violet light is bent
slightly more than red light by this prismatic action, causing a dispersal of the component colors of white
light ... cirrostratus clouds contain predominantly hexagonal ice crystals of uniform size, sunlight passing
through these crystals is refracted by 22 degrees ... the heavens declare the glory of God. The high degree
of order evidenced by rainbows and sun dogs demonstrates that our world did not come into being by
random chance as evolutionists would have us believe, but by an all-knowing Creator
cubit is one of the earliest known standards of length, used in ancient Israel and throughout the Near
East. It was originally the length of one’s forearm between the tip of the middle finger and the elbow.
The word cubit comes from the Latin word for elbow and the Hebrew term refers to the forearm ...
long or royal cubits were common. Dual cubit values in Egypt were 17.72 and 20.67 inches ...

The number is often rounded to 18 inches or 1.5 feet. ... Noah’s Ark measures an impressive 450

The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the
earth, and, behold, it was corrupt ... stegosaur back plate with a bite mark from an allosaur or large

commandments, however: multiply and eat plants (Genesis 1:22, 28, 30). Of course they did not stop
reproducing, but these verses seem to indicate that at least some animals were not following God’s
command to eat plants
isotopes Tellurium-130 (130Te) and Selenium-82 (82Se) are known to undergo double beta-decay,
a process in which two neutrons change into two protons with the emission of two electrons and two
anti-neutrinos ... 1881, Charles Spurgeon addressed this subject: God’s word is the manifestation of
his secret thought ... decay rates were much larger during the Genesis Flood. As part of the research

At the recent Creation Research Society Conference ... significant amount of accelerated decay

uniformitarians, Earth history is drawn directly from their geologic timescale. From this philosophical
perspective, sediments are assigned a stratigraphic position consistent with modern depositional
environments. Problems arise where geologic materials and the purported paleo-environments ...
Pliocene sand, clay, and gravel deposits along the Florida peninsula ... Appalachian Mountains and
Piedmont brought sediment to the coastal plain where it was deposited along adjacent flood plains or
reached deltas discharging into the marine environment ... Fluvial-delatic sedimentary processes
merged into cross-shelf and downslope sedimentary processes, again all pulsed by variations in
sea-level and climate
1998, naturalistic geologists William Ryan and Walter Pitman published an outlandish idea claiming
that a catastrophic marine flooding of the Black Sea occurred northward through the Bosporus Strait ...
story made worldwide headlines and proved to be a lucrative source of funding for marine geologists
working in the Black Sea ... proposed former freshwater lake elevation ... violated evidentiary rules
by dismissing without reason the historical account in the Bible in favor of a questionable geologic
interpretation ... Which is the real myth: the straightforward narrative of Genesis or the convoluted
attempts of geologists like Ryan and Pitman (1998) to mythologize the Flood? ... Genesis
Many people have looked for the remains of Noah’s ark, and a number of alleged sightings

modern patterns of extinction and threatened extinction reveals a pattern opposite that predicted

woman made from the first man. If we cannot accept this on the basis of Moses’ account in Genesis,
