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 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."
