Chris, I agree that the flood was global. Otherwise how can we explain the rocks in my Dad's field that have seashells fosils - 300 miles from the coast.

Dear Chris

Although Idon't have much evidence and am not a exppert the symbol for survival in Japan is a boat.

referring to the flood: read the footnotes of the JERUSALEM BIBLE (by the way translated from the original languages and commented by the best biblical experts)about the flood: "le souvenir d'une ou de plusiers inondations desastreuses de la vallie du Tigre et de l'Euphrate, que la tradition avait grossies AUX DIMENSIONS D'UN CATACLYSME UNIVERSEL." i give the french text, but i am sure one or many of the readers of this forum may have the English transaltion and will be kind enough to write it down in this page. So, Chris, it seems that the flood didn't cover the whole earth.

Chris -

Best overview I ever saw about the "flood" was at website Http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/faq-noahs-ark.html If nothing else..it makes ya go "Hmmmmm"

To Chris:

I realize I'm months behind in this conversation, but if you read the text carefully we will notice that the earth was only one land mass before the flood! Therefore the Hebrew word, which means land, is most correct. The flood covered all the "land" because at that time there was only one land mass, during the flood the foundations of the earth were broken up, resulting in what we call our continents today and the best explanation science can offer is the continental drift. I hope this is helpful.
