The best evidence of the world wide flood could be all those cities and "temple" complexes found deep underwater in many parts of the world such as Asia, America, europe and the Mediterranean. Nobody can deny that those could not have been built by a bunch of ancient divers and the only logical explanation is that they were built along time ago before the water levels rose at some point. Maybe it didn't happened all at once but it reach some areas first but eventually touch mosts parts of the world. Scandinavia is the only part of the world without tales of a great flood, most like because it just got real cold and froze at the time.

The problem is many of these aren't actually 'temples' they are either natural, don't exist at all or are cities that were drowned much later in the time line

See point above, first you have to ID which one are actually human built and if so then when were they built. Just to clarify what you are claiming can you list by name the ones you are asserting were human made and drowned between 12,000 BC and say 7,000 BC

Sorry other parts of the world also have cultures without world destroying great floods.

Many people around here seem to be completely devoid of even the most basic concepts of geology.

The main fact ignored by the ignorant is that land actually sinks. IOW, a rising sea level is not required to explain any ruins ever found on the sea floor by anyone at any time.

Obviously, no explanation is necessary for Yonaguni or the "site" claimed to exist off the shore of Cuba.

Sites off India sank a few centuries ago (and they are still sinking.)

Parts of Alexandria (I assume this is the reference to the Mediterreanean) also sank a few centuries ago. Alexandria, too, is still sinking.

"The discovery of ancient mangrove forest remains under the Great Barrier Reef has cast doubt on some theories about how quickly the sea level rose after the last ice age.

Most scientists believe it was a gradual rise over the past 9,000 years. But the existence of relic mangroves 70cm (27in) below the floor of the Barrier Reef, some with leaves and branches still intact, suggests an abrupt rise.

Dan Alongi, a biologist at the Australian Institute of Marine Science, said it appeared that sea levels rose about 3 metres in less than 30 years, drowning forests and flooding estuaries, 20 times faster than previously thought."

As already indicated, sea level change happened in differing locations at differing levels and in differing events. No global flood or sea level change, instead it happened over thousands of years in many different places. In some of these places, there were rapid events (over the course of decades), in others it was far more gradual. Research available from Woods Hole and a variety of other institutions. The reason i favour Woods Hole for this sort of research is that they specialise in the marine environment, so they really understand their findings!

I should add that, in geological time, Australia is one of the places that has been bouncing up and down like a basketball.

It is just as valid, then, to presume that the mangroves Scott pointed to were sunk, and not inundated.

In historical times Port Royal, Lisbon all or in part were lost into the sea by a subsidence as was Helike
