When a major flood occurs it leaves a distinct layer in the geologic record. No such layer occurs all over the world at the same time. As has been pointed out many times on this board there are plenty of reasons to explain why so many cultures have flood stories. For one every ancient culture that has a flood story was founded by and dependent on a river. A large part of Egyptian beliefs were based on the cyclical flooding of the Nile. Stories can also travel and be passed down through the years. The first Semites were the Akkadians. As a result it is not surprising to see strong similarities between the story of Noah and the Epic of Gilgamesh. All the evidence points to these stories being in reference to localized flooding not an actual global flood.

Imtor, think about catastrophes. You are living in ancient times. Let's see what upsets we might have encountered: big winds, big fires, big quakes, eclipses, big floods. Of these floods are probably more common. So which are we going to use in a story?

Has there ever been a world wide flood? No. Have there been local floods? Of course. Have there been huge floods? Yes. Global floods? No.

If you want to learn about sinking mountains you might want to learn about guyots.

ATTENTION!!!!!



Going forward in this thread, there will be no calling out, in ANY way, of members as being disinfo agents or any other sort of name-calling.

Such posts will be removed and warned.

I am often called a disinfo agent. Should people report those posts when they occur?

Well... you two are saying there was no global flooding. Maybe yes,. but what's your definition of global? If you mean the entire continents all suddenly underwater or something, no, but as large as Europe, half Europe is just big enoughm let's say a flood only in the area known by people - which could be as much as half Africa/Quarter Africa which still is partial - is still very big flood.

If you're saying it's just the water going out of the river and flooding one village and people making a whoel story out of it.. well hardly. And most importantly - you cannot prove it, this layering theory probably would work if it were one area you constantly keep a track on. With the crust constantly active, plate tectonics, you cannot be sure what remains and what not.

So as a result of the movement of plates, several places on the Earth may have sunk at the same time or nearly the same time, there is basically no way to know and you cannot prove that peopel made it up, just like at the moment it can't be said how large was the flood. In order to exist in several different places, it may be holding soem truth. I cannot say for sure but you cannot prove it didnt happen. So where are we - nowhere, you cannot prove either.

There are no pan Europe floods. Such a flood would require inundation of most of the world.

Actually we can determine that there have been continuous settlements of man going going back into prehistoric times. Settlements may come and go but there is overlap showing humans have lived in areas for tens of thousands of years.

Do people make up stories? You bet. Look at all of the wacky stories posted here and there. There are places in the world where varves show that there has been no flooding for over 25,000 years.

The crust does move. We can see that movement for billions of years. It is slow and continues today.

Continents don't sink. They are too light to sink. They float on the surface of the Earth and have done so for billions of years. No flood has ever covered a continent. Post glacial floods from ice dam failures are larger floods than rivers flooding.


In order to exist in several different places, it may be holding soem truth. I cannot say for sure but you cannot prove it didnt happen. So where are we - nowhere, you cannot prove either.

You are wrong. Floods leave evidence. That evidence can be seen in places like river deltas.

You might want to know that DaVinci wrote about the Deluge and was probably one of the first people to openly criticize evidence for a global flood. This is not a new idea. For 500 years people have been aware that a global flood did not happen.
