There are many evidences have been unearthed that there was a worldwide flood such as thousands of Dinosaur bones on mountain sides that are hidden from observers in order to hide much of the myths being published by the evolutionists and their mythical theory. There are many more evidences being discovered of the worldwide flood but it is kept from the public view purposely, eventually the truth will come out openly.

But some archaeologists and historians are taking the latest claim that Noah's ark has been found about as seriously as they have past ones—which is to say not very.
"I don't know of any expedition that ever went looking for the ark and didn't find it," said Paul Zimansky, an archaeologist specializing in the Middle East at Stony Brook University in New York State.
Turkish and Chinese explorers from a group called Noah's Ark Ministries International made the latest discovery claim Monday in Hong Kong, where the group is based.
"It's not 100 percent that it is Noah's ark, but we think it is 99.9 percent that this is it," Yeung Wing-cheung, a filmmaker accompanying the explorers, told The Daily Mail.

Noah's Ark Location in Turkey a Secret
The team claims to have found in 2007 and 2008 seven large wooden compartments buried at 13,000 feet (4,000 meters) above sea level, near the peak of Mount Ararat. They returned to the site with a film crew in October 2009.
Many Christians believe the mountain in Turkey is the final resting place of Noah's ark, which the Bible says protected Noah, his family, and pairs of every animal species on Earth during a divine deluge that wiped out most of humanity.
"The structure is partitioned into different spaces," said Noah's Ark Ministries International team member Man-fai Yuen in a statement. "We believe that the wooden structure we entered is the same structure recorded in historical accounts. ... "
The team says radiocarbon-dated wood taken from the discovery site—whose location they're keeping secret for now—shows the purported ark is about 4,800 years old, which coincides roughly with the time of Noah's flood implied by the Bible.
"Noah's Ark" Wood "Way, Way, Way Too Young"
Skepticism of the new Noah's ark claim extends to at least one scholar who interprets the Bible literally.
Biologist Todd Wood is director of the Center for Origins Research at Bryan College in Tennessee, which pursues biology in a creationist framework.
As a creationist, Wood believes God created Earth and its various life-forms out of nothing roughly 6,000 years ago.
"If you accept a young chronology for the Earth ... then radiocarbon dating has to be reinterpreted," because the method often yields dates much older than 6,000 years, Wood said.
Radiocarbon dating estimates the ages of organic objects by measuring the radioisotope carbon 14, which is known to decay at a set rate over time. The method is generally thought to reach its limit with objects about 60,000 years old. Earth is generally thought to be about four and a half billion years old.
Across the board, radiocarbon dates need to be recalibrated, Wood believes, to reflect shorter time frames.
Given this perceived overestimation in radiocarbon dating, the wood the Noah's Ark Ministries International team found should have a "traditional" radiocarbon date of several tens of thousands of years if the wood is truly 4,800 years old, Wood said.
"I'm really, really skeptical that this could possibly be Noah's Ark," he added. The wood date is "way, way, way too young."
Wood thinks Noah's ark will never be found, because "it would have been prime timber after the flood," he said.
"If you just got off the ark, and there's no trees, what are you going to build your house out of? You've got a huge boat made of wood, so let's use that," he said. "So I think it got torn apart and scavenged for building material basically."
(Related: National Geographic's search for Noah's flood.)
"Noah's Ark" Found in Right Country, on Wrong Mountain?
Another reason scholars are skeptical of the latest Noah's ark discovery claim is that Genesis—the first book of the Bible—never specifies which peak the vessel supposedly landed on in Turkey.
"The whole notion is odd, because the Bible tells you the ark landed somewhere in Urartu,"—an ancient kingdom in eastern Turkey—"but it's only later that people identified Mount Ararat with Urartu," said Jack Sasson, a professor of Jewish and biblical studies at Vanderbilt University in Tennessee.
Stony Brook's Zimansky agreed. "Nobody associated that mountain with the ark" until the tenth century B.C., he said, adding that there's no geologic evidence for a mass flood in Turkey around 4,000 years ago. (See "'Noah's Flood' Not Rooted in Reality, After All?")
The Noah's Ark Ministries International explorers are "playing in a very different ballpark than the rest of us," Zimansky said. "They're playing without any concern for" the archaeological, historical, and geological records.
Better Explanations for "Noah's Ark" Structure?
Even if the Noah's Ark Ministries International team did find a wooden structure or even a boat on Mount Ararat, there are other explanations for what the structure might be.
For example, it could be a shrine constructed by early Christians to commemorate the site where they believed Noah's Ark should be, Zimansky said.
Even in that speculative case, it wouldn't be 4,000 years old. "The Bible hadn't even been written yet," he said.
Bible scholar Sasson said he thinks biblical writers intended the story of Noah's ark to be allegorical, not a true recounting of historical events. By presenting a scenario in which humanity is punished for its wickedness, "they were trying to draw us to the notion of a God who asks us to be acceptable," Sasson said.
UN to Consider "Noah's Ark"?
On its Web site, Noah's Ark Ministries International says the Turkish government plans to apply to the United Nations to put the Noah's ark discovery site on the UNESCO World Heritage list, a designation given to places of special cultural or physical significance.
But the agency hasn't received any official requests from Turkey for "the inscription of 'Noah's ark'" into the list, UNESCO spokesperson Roni Amelan said in an email.
Such a move would take time, Amelan added. "This cannot be done overnight."
It is very possible the myth of Noah's Ark was triggered by the Durupina geologic formation that some have claimed is the ark itself. Mythology is replete with examples of natural phenomena forming the basis of stories to explain them. Just as a rainbow was said to be God's sign to Noah, the sight of such a strange, boat shaped formation could easily have resulted in a story to explain it as a man made giant boat.
Given current extreme climae change, with increased sea levels predicted, perhaps each community should underwrite and build an ark with sustainable methods and supplies on board.
It's more complicated than we think, any expectation about the Ark will be very hard to be found, after so long centuries. A lot people will come and say I saw God, I talk to Him, I walk with the Lord. God will send a new ark in the future...We need be prepare and pray for the coming days.

One more point.... would Universities offer a MASTERS (theology, etc.) on something that was "fake", "not real", etc.?
The Holy Bible is STILL the #1 reading book, selling book and banned in 52 countries. Why?
Im currently researching the whole "if there wasnt a worldwide flood then WHY ARE THERE SHELLS ON 28,000 foot Mount Everest?"
Jesus is LORD. EVERY Knee shall bow and EVERY tongue WILL confess.
The Bible does NOT support what we view as modern day slavery, etc. To understand the Bible, namely the OLD TESTEMENT you MUST take the historical and cultural aspects into account...also why some are bothered by laws given to the Jewish Nation of Israel 1406-7 B.C is beyond me. Its the same dumb argument every "atheist" makes. This is extremely intellectually dishonest.
A review in Hermeneutics and Biblical Exegesis with a concordance and commentary has helped me immensely in understanding the Holy Bible which was written TO GODS PEOPLE ONLY, not for scoffers! It is a supernatural book that one can only comprehend once they enter into convenant with HIM. Luke 24:45
And for those prooftexting individuals may I suggest you go back to basic reading comprehension and READ WITHIN THE CONTEXT?
Hello. Id like to share some info with some. I, a former atheist agnostic have become a believer simply by looking at all the empirical evidence that supports the Bible. (Bible archaeology, scientifically, geologically, etc.) Also as far as Noahs ark is concerned... If my 7 membered family and I invested 100 years in building a three story vessel that measured about 600 feet (think a 3 level contemporary cruise ship with 16,000 animals) this would be difficult but not completely impossible. Think about it. Seriously.
Some resources I would like to leave with you should you really possess an open mind and a teachable spirit....
Facts about Noahs Ark = http://www.icr.org/article/402/
John Woodmorappe's A Feasibility Study of Noahs Ark. (GREAT book if you can find it!)
Why would anyone would expect to find any remains? The legend of Noah's Ark pre-dates the Bible by thousands of years, it was known on tablets from the Mesopotamian city of Ur - now in modern day Iraq, in the earliest version the Ark was a circular raft built of reeds.
The story as we now know it has been changed and embellished many times, measurements added etc according to how people thought Noah may have made his Ark relating to the construction methods of their own times. The biblical Ark that some people are searching for simply did not exist
The original story of the raft may well have related to a real flood in the area but having made landfall in such circumstances it is likely that the survivors would utilise their raft/ boat for firewood and shelter. Nothing could be found nowadays that could be linked to the legend, no one knows the date of the flood or the true location of even if it was based on a real event at all.
For all the intelligence we humans claim to have, those "illiterates" had a great deal more. You find them dumb because they could not read or write, before words there was not a need to read or write. Science is a useless knowledge, for all its solutions it has only created problems, that it tries to solve. Isn't that a paradox?
Words are sounds that humans give to things, because we give them sound does not mean that we give it purpose or identity or existence. Science does the same, it gives words to things. No matter how hard science says this thing is an "electron"(jus an example) and it does this or interacts with this, it still does not explain what it is, for we will never truly know what ANYTHING is.
Every physical thing you see, hear, taste, smell, touch. Is a vibration, whether its "solid" or "gas" or "liquid". Yet science does not truly know what this is? Only the name it has given it. Would a rose called by any other name smell as sweet? Well no s***.
We are blessed with a planet that is filled with every piece of this universe, good and bad, that we can awe at and wonder at and preserve. Science has done nothing but destroy this planet, along with media preying on insecurities. This is the physical devil we face as of now!! This is where our focus should rest!
It does not matter whether any religion is real, whether any god is or is not.
What matters is striving for a better humanity. Believing that people, are inherently good, and helping them to see that in themselves.
Because god or no god, the only purpose that should matter is that alone.
Looks like we have a war between religion and atheism going on here. First of I would like to say that I respect everyone's opinion, even the opinion of atheist's. I'm not a scientist so I'm not going to go to in depth, but I do have a couple of questions. The Big Bang Theory states that at one point, the universe was a singularity containing all the matter needed to create the universe. My question is, how did that singularity get there? Was the universe at one point nothing and if so, how could something come from nothing? That is why I believe in God. I just don't see any other way we could all be here.
Noah's Ark being found high on Mt. Ararat is a very debated topic. One thing is for sure; there is a man made wooden structure up there. This structure looks very similar to a ship, specifically the famous Ark of Noah. Could it be a hoax? Of course! Anything is possible. I have done a little research on Mt. Ararat and let me say it's a treacherous mountain. Avalanches are a real threat and there are multiple crevasses that one could fall through to their death. I just don't believe someone would risk their life and go through those incredible lengths just to play an elaborate hoax. The way I see it is there are 2 ways that ship could have got there. 1: someone is playing a very sadistic hoax on humanity or 2: There was indeed a flood and the mountain is where the Ark ran aground. One eye witness of the Ark brought back wood that was carbon dated back to around 5000 years, which coincides with the Ark's journey. Now I am aware that carbon dating is not 100% accurate, but I still don't believe someone would go through that much trouble to play a joke.
Many events in the Bible that have been disputed actually can be supported by science. One such even is the parting of the Red Sea. The point where the Jew's crossed was actually a shallow area. A strong wind could indeed make a path for the Jews to cross and all it would take after that is a change in wind to cause all that water to come crashing down. Napoleon actually experienced a similar event and barely escaped with his life.
Another event is the famous battle between David vs. Goliath. The main argument to this historic battle is the size of Goliath. He was supposedly over 9 feet tall. However history has shown that giants did live back in the day as well as today. I understand that there is no way to prove Goliath's actual size because his body was never found. But Julius Caesar's body hasn't been found either but we all know he existed. The other argument against this event is the fact that a little pebble brought down a giant like Goliath. But I have been to Iraq and have witnessed first hand how fast a sling can throw a pebble. Someone who is experienced can sling a pebble with lethal speed and pin point accuracy. If a pebble traveling that fast struck someone in the head, as did Goliath, it could easily knock someone unconscious. After Goliath fell, David then took Goliath's sword and cut Goliath's head off. Every bit of that is plausible.
The Bible goes into so much detail it's just impossible for me to think that it's just fiction. Read the book of exodus, specifically the part about the Jew's constructing the Ark of the Covenant. The Bible describes how the Ark was supposed to be built in so much detail. From every material used to every last measurement. The same detail is given for the construction of the Temple of Jerusalem in the 2nd book of Kings. Given the detail of the Bible, I just don't think that someone could have just made it up. The Book of Exodus is an eye witness account of the Jew's journey from Egypt to the promised land. Archeologist have found a carving at Mt. Sinai in a cave of a cow. The exact cow that the Jew's worshipped while Moses made his 40 day journey to the top of the mountain to receive the 10 commandments from God. That proves that the Jew's were indeed at that location just like the Bible says.
I would also like to address whether the great flood is possible. Like I said previously, I am no scientist. I'm now saying that the rain alone flooded the Earth. But if it did pour for 40 days and 40 nights like the bible say's, wouldn't that cause the oceans to flood which could put the world underwater? That's actually a question. I'm not nearly good enough at math to figure that answer out. If the oceans did indeed flood, could the flood be plausible? I also see and understand the views of atheist. I know it can be hard to believe in something that you can't see. It's one of those things where you just have to have faith. I can't explain it but I just know in my heart, that God does exist. One thing is for sure, one day we will all find out. It's just a matter of time.
One last thing - if you knew the truth behind religion, Christianity etc..... would you blow it for everyone else....
These poor souls (Christians etc.) need GOD for their existence otherwise their lives would be without purpose.... or so they think.
Besides everything in this world that is not man made has an opposite.... and many parts of the bible misplace this fact... women for a start give life.... not GOD..... sexual intercourse is a fact of life, for without it there would be no life...
The bible also states that to live life you must be gay, have sex with your brother or sister... and treat women like dirt.... for this you will be given entry into heaven.....
NOT FOR ME..... YOU POOR SICK PEOPLE.....
Can anyone tell me what is at these coordinates on google maps?
You'll need to zoom in to see object.
...Like Seneferu, Imhotep was a Theban priest, and they took over and started the 4th Dynasty. Like Imhotep, Noah was a high priest, medicine man, great architect, and etc. Where else did Noah get the skills to build the great ark, but ancient Egypt. Like Lamech, his father prophesized, Noah would be a deliverer. When Seneferu was mysteriously found dead, and the government was taken over, it seems obvious that Imhotep took off and a hundred years later, his great ark was constructed, and the 5th Dynasty was ended abruptly by the flood. That marked the end of the Old Kingdom and the end of the great pyramids built of stone as it was done prior. But because of Separation of Church and State, we have been deprived of being able to see the truth in regards to how Imhotep's life and Noah's life match! It seems obvious to me that Imhotep and Noah are one and the same man! The names of Noah's eldest son match Imhoteps priesthood in connection with PTAH, and so many other names of Noah's descendants match the name of Imhotep [a spiritual name] such as Mizra-IM, RephidIM, CaphtorIM, and etc. Due to the Separation of Church and State, the educational system has been used as a tool to deprive us of so much truth. But hopefully, not for long.
...In regards to the wonderful man, Noah, his life coincides exactly with the life of Imhotep. The high priest, lecture priest, medicine man, and etc. of Djoser of the 3rd Dynasty who constructed the Great Steppe Pyramid of Sakkara was dated to be about 2667 B.C. according to the Bible timeline, Noah would have been around 300 years old at this time. It is said that the tomb of Imhotep was never found, and that would be because, HE NEVER DIED! Imhotep never died!
. . . Considering the dating system with regards to the Biblical timelines, if you compare and contrast the secular dating systems of today with respect to the Star of Bethlehem the becomes the basis for the Biblical timelines, then it is obvious that the dates given for the wood tested by this team is accurate. Based upon the Star of Bethlehem, the actual time of the Great World Flood and Noah's Ark was April 17, 2356 B.C. and Noah would have been 600 years old. This would also correlate to the actual birth of Jesus Christ too, April 17, and the very time of the appearance of the Star of Bethlehem. Like the book of Genesis states, the flood was on the 17th day, the Second month, when Noah was 600 years old. And then there is the secular records that can also be compared and contrasted to ancient Egyptian records which gives only more astonishing findings:
Well, as an African American descendant of slaves and severely persecuted in this system, and a Christian, I know that this will be the closest I will get to the truth about Noah's Ark, that is, until the Second Coming. I followed this story for over a year now about this team and although most of the video youtubes are cancelled regarding this subject, I've seen them and know that it is total truth. It matches the Bible in all respects. I am so elated to have found this research team and information about their trek to what I believe to be one of the most important findings on this earth and beyond in regards to mankind. The conflicting reports given in the media and by scientist is only expected and goes along with ages old deceptions to try and kick against the truth.
I've seen other youtube videos about how the Russians, the army, and other governments have trekked to this site and taken pictures and all of a sudden the videos are taken off the internet. So much secrecy. But any avid Bible researcher will see and know that this is truth.
they stated "The team says radiocarbon-dated wood taken from the discovery site—whose location they're keeping secret for now—.."... why would they want to hide this?
@Sidney Burrows No evidence at all of a worldwide flood has ever been found. You may find my other answers on this page helpful in understanding the water cycle, rain etc as to why a global flood is impossible and why dinosaur bones are found on mountains - no mysteries simply basic geology and geography.
@Mike Harmon Interesting, yes it's always possible that tales of a boat shaped object could have led to some of the later legends such as the version of the story found in the Bible. In the very earliest versions of the ark story it was a circular raft built from reeds.
@Dennis Amagan Go directly to Youtube for the video that was once attached to this article.
@S A Regarding the fossilised shells on Mount Everest, no mystery there, the rocks were pushed up from the seabed to form the Himalayas when the Eurasian and Indo-Australian tectonic plates collided.
Mount Everest is formed of marine limestone from the now extinct Tethys Ocean which existed at the time, because of the low density of the rocks they faulted and were pushed up to form mountains rather than going down to form an oceanic trench.
There may well be sites on Google showing evidence of a world wide flood, there are wild theories for everything on the internet - no genuine evidence at all has ever been found.
For further info on the possibility of global flooding you may find some of my other replies explaining the water cycle etc helpful.
to add a comment to the source of the flood water: I am not a scientist
either and I do not know the total amount of water that the Earth's ice
caps have or if it would be enough to cover the whole planet's
surface.One thing that I do know is that the Bible doesn't state that
all the waters that covered the Earth emerged from the planet's surface.
In the passage of the flood, the Bible states that on that day, "all
the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the
heavens were opened" (Gen.7.11). This passage, however, can be subjected
to interpretation to simply say, "oh, it just rained; water fell from
the sky." However, in the narrative of the Creation, we see that 'in the beginning' "God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so. God
called the vault 'sky' " (Gen. 1.7,8) So there is water above and below
the "vault" that we see; the visual sky is a vault for water as well.
@Alex Holloway As regards any flooding on Mount Ararat, the base of Mount Ararat is 1,526m above sea level with the peak rising to an elevation of 5,137m. To put this into perspective, if all the ice in the Antarctic and Greenland icesheets including the glaciers were to melt then the global sea level would only rise by approximately 70m.
@Alex Holloway Actually 40 days and nights of rain doesn't sound that much to someone living in the UK lol. Some places in the world today have far more rainfall, Waratah in Australia averages 314 days of rainfall per year, i believe they have a giant Wellington boot to represent the actual inches of rain that fall there.
@Alex Holloway Hi Alex, just to try and help with your question about the rain, rain is part of the water cycle, over 97% of the world's water is in the oceans and it is the evaporation of the oceans that accounts for the vast majority of the water in the atmosphere which falls as rain. As part of the cycle, however long the period of rain globally the sea level would balance out. So no global flood caused by 40 days and nights of rain but quite possibly a large local flood, the known world in biblical times was relatively small.
Please cite your source. I have read the Bible cover to cover and have not found this. Yours is a reading comprehension problem I think. You misunderstand scrupture. Very common I find.
@Bob Smith Let me correct you sir, "women for a start give life.... not GOD....." that is pretty stupid to say, cause if woman gives life and not God then how in some cases some babies die after Birth or while in the Womb, as if women has a choice to kill the baby before birth or after birth. men and woman help make the Baby in the woman's womb, (the woman carries the baby for 9 months in the Womb) and God lives life at first conception. if man and woman can create life then how come every time science try to create life it always ends up in total failure (or clone a human) It's called "being blinded from the truth" and my words to you is nothing but vanity and corruptions. "Amazing Grace"
@Bob Smith I understand you didn't read the Bible.! Even if you read but you didn't understand it. I will say one thing, Bible didn't say what you think it said. You are wrong.
@Kimberly Daniel Actually, the pyramids were built long after Noah and his supposed boat. They were built largely by the Israelites and other slaves of the Egyptian Empire. But many cultures long preceding the Israelites spoke of floods, though the accounts vary.
@Kimberly Daniel Hopefully religion and the last remaining gods will finally die out.Noah's ark and a global flood is impossible and has been thoroughly debunked over and over again.
Noah died, according to the Bible, when he was 950 years old. So, this would add to why the tomb of Imhotep was never found. Mankind had longer lifespans at that time before the flood. Djoser, the Golden Horus, died according to script and his descendants took over for a short while, but the 3rd Dynasty, was taken over by Seneferu, the Beneficent king-priest.
@Kimberly Daniel Somebody is pulling your leg because you're so gullible. There are no 'secular' dates for this "flood", mainly because scientists have found absolutely no proof that such a flood has ever happened. If you wish to talk timelines, literal Creationists believe that the earth is only about 10,000 years old, based off of the information in the bible itself. The 'secular' method of aging things is accurate for 60,000 years, while secular scientists believe the earth is closer to 4.5 billion years old. Creationists (who believe in the bible) refute this "secular" science, saying that nothing can be older than 10,000 so the testing process is flawed (measured decay of radioisotopes is wrong?) or the funniest one, that god made everything with an apparent age. The apparent age one kills me, it says that god made the earth to appear old, why would god make things to look older than they are? Anytime you go looking for 'science' to support your faith, you have to change the science to suit your needs. Anytime you go looking for history to suit your faith, you have to modify it and make unfounded claims to suit your needs, like your claim that Noah and Imhotep were the same man, which is, to put it gently, completely stupid, unfounded and unprovable.
@Kimberly Daniel That date is absurd. There were civilizations all over the world that had developed writing long before then, and there was no mention of a flood. Those civilizations would not be there writing stuff after a flood that kills everyone in the world.
Also, how exactly did Noah fit 13 million animals (2 each of 6.5 million land species) on a 400'x70' boat? How is that there are plants? A flood that covered up the highest mountains on earth would kill all land based plants on the planet. most of the waterlife would be killed off too, with the introduction of that much fresh water into the ocean. Ever put a saltwater fish into fresh water? Or vice versa?
@Izzy Colón @Alex Holloway Hi Izzy, have you seen my replies to Alex? You may find them helpful. The total amount of water that exists on planet Earth is roughly 326 million trillion gallons. This does not change as it is constantly re-cycled in the water cycle, evaporating and then falling back down as rain apart from the water that is present as ice. The maximum amount that sea level could rise at any time is approximately 70m in the most extreme case.
Also, scientists have gotten quite good at cloning animals now, and use them regularly in research. They don't clone humans for ethical reasons, though they are starting to clone working human organs that are already being transplanted into patients.
By the way, those evil scientists are why you are typing on a computer, on the internet, using electricity. You probably have a smart phone too because of those horrible, always wrong scientists. That phone probably has GPS. If not for Einstein's relativity (time shifting), the knowledge of what exactly the speed of light (which shows us how old the universe is), and the way light shifts into different spectrums based on speed and distance travelled (which also shows us the distance to distant stars and the age of the universe), your GPS wouldn't work...not to mention the satellites, and how they got up in space.
@Kraig DeSmedt @Bob Smith
...um...conception is when some genes merge inside a cell, which changes the type of cell, which then reproduces a whole bunch of times. After about 24 weeks, this batch of cells becomes sentient, in that it has the ability to process internal and external input from sensory cells and purposefully move it's newly formed body parts. We can watch the entire process happen these days.
The fact that babies die before, during, or shortly after birth show not that there is, but that there isn't an "intelligent designer" creating each kid. Considering that 64% of all pregnancies naturally end in miscarriage, not to mention the high rate of infant mortality, I'd say that the "designer" screws up a rather lot of the time.
Have you read your bible? The one that endorses slavery and racism? The one that says a wife should be subjugated to her husband and do as told by men? The one that says if a man rapes a woman he should then be made to marry her (the man's not punished for rape, the victim is), the one that specifically states you should stone your children if they be unruly? Bob may be wrong about the gay thing, but the rest is awfully close to what the bible really says. Read it, the whole thing instead of just the passages your pastor drones on about or the verses you like, the entire thing. You may learn a few things about how sick your own faith is.
@Rick Shannep @Kimberly Daniel Did you bother to check anything before making such claims? Scientist agree that the pyramids of Khufu were built roughly about 5200 years ago. Christian scholars say that the 'flood' happened 4800 years ago. That would mean that the pyramids came long before the flood wouldn't it?
@Kristina Ferman @peter bartholomew @Izzy Colón @Alex Holloway The water (hydrologic) cycle simply explains how water travels from the surface to the air and back again - not my theory lol - just basic knowledge taught in primary geography.
The amount of water remains constant, in fact the water around today is the same water as was here millions of years ago, it is just constantly recycled. The amount of water was certainly no different in historical times.
There is no evidence at all of a global flood or even a large flood in the area, the nearest thing in relatively recent times, geologically speaking, was the flooding of the Mediterranean basin to form the Mediterranean Sea but this was 5.3 Million years ago.
