Consider this scripture:
And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods.
And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood,...
If Terah, the father of Abraham lived before the flood, then Abraham would have had to survive the Great Flood. Furthermore, since Abraham's father was an idol maker and served other gods, he would not have been considered righteous enough to get a boarding pass. Would he?
Or does this show that the Flood was not a world-wide event?
Or does it show that the Qu'ran is more accurate than the bible as it says Noah took 72 passengers in addition to his family?
