Evidence For Noah's Flood Presented
Many secular scientists believe there is very
little or no evidence for a global flood which is mentioned in the Bible. Many
of those same scientists however believe a global flood could have happened on
the planet Mars. As we shall see, there is plenty of evidence for a worldwide
flood which confirms the Scriptures.
"And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was
great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was
only evil continually...And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have
created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing,
and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them...And,
behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all
flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is
in the earth shall die.
The Grand Canyon is one of many places which
showcases evidence for Noah's flood. Evolutionists have dated these rocks based
on assumptions between 230 million years old and 530 million years old.
Generally when fossils are found, they get assigned an age which then dates the
sedimentary layers. The concept is known as uniformitarian geology. The
creationist paradigm predicts widespread, thick strata deposited quickly over
vast areas of land. Generally showing little or no erosion between the
What we find in the Grand Canyon is more
consistent with the Flood model than with the uniformitarian model. We observe
the formation of Cocoino Sandstone in the top of the Grand Canyon which can
linked with sandstones in New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Oklahoma and Kansas. When
we look closer at the interface between layers in the Grand Canyon, we see
little or no erosion which evolutionists claim to be many millions of years old.
The average state of erosion on the continents would erode the layers to sea
level in 10 million years. So the observational data is not even matching up to
the evolutionist hypothesis of age.
In a flood especially a world wide flood, one
would expect to find a highly diverse rock layer. And that's indeed what we
find, as sedimentary rocks in the Grand Canyon are found all over the world,
showing very little erosion between the layers. Evolutionists have noticed the
regularity and parallelism of the layers which suggests the rocks were deposited
in a single uninterrupted sequence. Something a flood could do. But their
assumptions on how the fossils are dated are in direct conflict of what they see
in the rocks themselves. So what conclusion do you think would an evolutionist
take? Pretty obvious, he or she would take the dating of the fossils assumption
instead. It's the main reason why many secular scientists try to deny the flood
evidence. However, their denial doesn't change observational data.
The Fossil Record
In a world wide flood one would expect to find a
massive and highly diversified group of fossils in a localized area. If there
was a global flood, the water would carry animals from various parts of the
world into localize areas where they are not known to have lived. And this is
what we do find in the fossil record. Also, 95 percent of the fossil record
consists of marine life. Marine life can degrade pretty quickly and would be a
poor candidate to fossilize slowly over time. The animal must be buried quickly
in order to ensure the creature being fossilized.
The Geological Model
A global flood would make a considerable and
observable impression in the strata. One would expect to find a pattern
consisting of buckling, bending, tilting, in the strata. Not a smooth flat
layer. This would happen because of billions of tons of weight created by the
flood would put an enormous amount of pressure on the earth's crust. The
pressure would increase as the flood gets larger and larger, thereby creating
downwards pressure, and also creating upwards and sideways pressure in
non-flooded areas. When the flood regresses to post-flood levels, an imbalance
of side pressure is created. Upwards pressure is also created when the massive
weight created by the water flow is removed. Observational data reveals the
geological model for the flood. The structure of the Pacific Ocean, Continental
Divide, and Mississippi River Valley show the water had moved off the uplifting
western United States, while seeing the water rushing toward the Pacific Ocean
and down the east slopes of the Rockies. We also observe bent, and tilted strata
in various parts of the world as the result of what the flood left behind.
Gene Pool Reveals The Flood
In a massive world wide flood one would expect
evidence in a reduction in the gene pool, and that is what exactly what
scientists have found.
“The studies, published in the journal,
Nature, paint a picture of a population of humans migrating off the African
continent, and then shrinking at some point because of unknown adversity.”
DNA is most accurate form of tracing ancestral lineage. This is because
Mitochondrial DNA is only passed on from mother to child and doesn’t mix
with the other parent’s DNA. After mapping mitochondrial DNA, scientists
noticed what is called a "bottleneck" in the gene pool. Now of course this
study in itself couldn't ID the flood as the reason for the shrinkage in
the gene pool, but it adds another factual observational fact, that the
flood indeed happened the way the Bible said it did.
