While we might never know what caused this flood, it is likely safe to assume this flood occurred,
Um, no, it's remarkably ignorant to assume such a flood occurred, as there's absolutely no evidence for it occurring.
Actually there is a lot of evidence of a global flood. From the eroded mountains in China, to the Grand Canyon, to dondoga land off the UK, to the
very oil and gas beneath your feet. The question isn't whether or not there was a flood, but to what extent of one are we talking. Keep in mind, we
are still in a flooded state, the water level has been proven to have risen over 200 ft in the last 2000 years in some areas, while the Mediterranean
Sea has rising 130ft by itself. Think for a moment of this, if 90% of the population lives at sea level, why would it be any different then than now,
especially given the lower level of technology 10k years ago, (when the ice age receded), and the fastest most efficient form of travel was in fact
via boat. To a lower level man, with a lower level technology, watching the seas rise over 100 years would make you think it's global, especially
since most had very specific traveling circumference that they traveled.
Do I think the floods that happened were on the scale that the bible says, no. However, there are many civilizations that point to wide spread
flooding on a large regional level that has been proven to have accursed and happened around the same time globally, from the hopi's to the chronicles
of Gilgamesh to the sanskrits on India to the aborigines and Indians in north and South America. So again, there was a flood event, the question is
why, and how severe was it.
