But NYD, since it cannot be proven or disproven that there indeed was a deluge that many refer to as the Great Flood, how would you know what kind of evidence would be lying around? I am no believer in religions but I do feel like there is plenty of documentation in multiple ancient cultures around the world to suggest that one did indeed occur more than 12,000 years ago. I realize from earlier discussions about this that you feel that these cultures were all referring to a flood that was localized and over dramatized in their accounts. The problem I have with this is that they all have eerily similar descriptions including the people involved. I feel that the accounts are so similar that I cannot discount it as coincidence.
