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