In so many threads pertaining to the Biblical Flood, I see people conceding that there is no scientific evidence to support it. So, I took it upon my
little biased, Jesus-lovin' self to find some unbiased information. This is harder than it seems. Not because the facts don't exist, but because
they are produced most often by the faith community.
It's important to meet people where they are. A lot of times, people are not in a place to read confirmation from jesus.com to support the science
behind Biblical events. They may never be there, and that's okay. However, to say there is no evidence is a fallacy. The evidence I'm about to
present took about 10 minutes to find in a Google search, so it doesn't have the depth I would like, but I have work and life...hence the fact that
I've been here for 5 years (3 more before that as a lurker) and have less than 200 posts as of this writing.
Alright, get to the point.
Robert Ballard is on the hunt. Man, I love him...I've been a Titanic buff since I was 14.
Four hundred feet below the surface, they unearthed an ancient shoreline, proof to Ballard that a catastrophic event did happen in the Black Sea. By
carbon dating shells found along the shoreline, Ballard said he believes they have established a timeline for that catastrophic event, which he
estimates happened around 5,000 BC. Some experts believe this was around the time when Noah's flood could have occurred.
Bretz found exotic granite boulders perched on basalt cliffs hundreds of feet above the highest recorded river level. In the scablands, a desolate
region stripped of soil, he came across dry waterfalls and potholes hundreds of feet above the modern river. Gigantic gravel bars deposited within dry
valleys implied deep, fast-flowing water. Streamlined hills rose like islands, extending more than 100 feet above the scoured-out channelways.
He realized the chaotic landscape had been carved by an enormous flood that chewed deep channels through hundreds of feet of solid basalt. The ancient
flood deposited an enormous delta around Portland, Oregon, backing up flow into the Willamette Valley. The waters, he eventually realized, could have
come from catastrophic drainage of Lake Missoula, an ancient, glacier-dammed lake in western Montana.
I thought both of these articles were interesting, especially the first one. I don't present them as definitive evidence, but they ARE evidence and
shouldn't be ignored. You can't say there is NO evidence of a period or periods of cataclysmic flooding. Regardless of if it involved a guy in a big
wood boat is beside the point. So often, the point is missed that you can't deny evidence because it may or may not support a Biblical event.
Hey, ATS, I hope you'll join in the conversation. Present your evidence...preferably unbiased.
Biased Site I Couldn't Ignore
Please note that I am not presenting this as a part of my commitment to unbiased information. I also am not presenting it as an entry for argument.
This is for the other believers out there. Good site. Ton of evidence...even though it looks like it was created in 2002.
