Why do people believe in the Bible? How does the Bible compare to other religious texts? Is there a difference between other religious texts and the Bible?
People are constantly attacking the Bible and saying there isn’t any evidence that supports it. Someone commented on one of my prior posts saying there isn’t any evidence for the Bible, but they are wrong. I want to first talk about Noah’s Flood. What really annoys me is when the Discovery Channel or the History Channel does a special on Noah’s Food saying, “Did Noah’s Flood really happen?” The whole special has one geological expert on it that makes statements like, “There isn’t any geological evidence that supports a global flood.” Are they saying that the Discovery Channel or the History Channel couldn’t find one geologist who believes in a global flood to give a counter argument? I can give you 10 in about 10 minutes. The truth is that there is loads of evidence to support a Noah’s Flood, and there is huge evidence to support the Bible.
Another flood article located at this site: mininova.org has statements such as “Oceanographer Bill Ryan was part of the team that revealed how the Mediterranean was formed 5 million years” and other statements like “Was Noah's Flood a symbol for real people who were driven from a real homeland by a real flood? In an extraordinary geological detective story, two of the world's greatest earth scientists travel to the Black Sea to reveal evidence of a mighty torrent that poured through the Bosphorus with the power of over four hundred Niagara Falls. Did this catastrophic event, only 7,500 years ago, become the stuff of ancient storytelling and the origin of the Biblical Flood?”
First they are spouting out another date that means nothing to anybody but evolutionist. How do they really know that it was 5 million years? Is there really a dating method that can date something accurately to 5 million years? However, the video is really about endorsing the local flood idea and not the global flood idea. I guess they will later explain how the Chinese legends had flood stories, and how the Native Americans had flood stories, and how Australian Aborigines had flood stories. I guess they plan to explain that in their next documentary. I guess they will explain how the Fossil ‘graveyards’ are found worldwide and in rocks of all ‘ages’. Only a global flood could achieve such an event. Maybe in their next unbiased flood documentary they will cover how the Dinosaurs and many other prehistoric creatures died out suddenly. Only a catastrophe such as a global flood could have produced this result. Just maybe, when the media actually attempt to film a documentary concerning Noah’s Flood that is accurate, we will learn about some of the facts that are actually true.
