You Can Run but You Can’t Hide: The Global Flood

Article#: 1619

Deuteronomy 30:19:

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

There are only two doors; we make the choice and the choice we make results in eternal consequences.  

Acts 4:10-12:

10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.

11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Salvation is an eternal benefit purchased for us by Jesus Christ on the Cross.  Salvation is a place Jesus calls “born again.”  John 3:3:

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

John 14:6 speaks of the exclusivity of Christ in regard to life:

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

There is only one way to eternal salvation and this way is a person; Jesus Christ is His name.  Have you been born again?  Will today be the day you enter through the door of eternal life?  Today—I mean right now—can be the day where all your sin, shame, and bondage is completely erased.  Today, you are in the valley of decision.  Choose life and live.  Click onto "Further with Jesus" for childlike instructions and immediate entry into the Kingdom of God.  NOW FOR TODAY’S SUBJECT. 

GOD SAID, Genesis 6:12-17:

12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.

16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.

17 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.

GOD SAID, Genesis 7:18-24:

18 And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.

19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.

20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.

21 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:

22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.

23 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.

24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.

MAN SAID: There was no “Noah’s Ark”—this is a bunch of Sunday-school foolishness!

How does evolutionary “science” come up with the bizarre deep ages of the universe—13- and 14-billions of years—when the Bible states the universe is younger than the earth, which was created by God in six, literal, 24-hour days just over 6,000 years ago?

The ultimate foundation of this foolishness called evolution is a principle in II Thessalonians 2:10 known as the “deceivableness of unrighteousness.”  The product of such pursuits is, as Romans 1:28 calls it, a reprobate mind, or as II Thessalonians defines it, strong delusion.    

In this life, only two options exist: Faith and God or unbelief and Satan.  Righteousness and its deeds are rooted in faith while unrighteousness and its deeds are rooted in unbelief—and herein hides Hell and the final results of the deceivableness of unrighteousness. 

Does regular, non-evolutionary science support billions of years?  The answer is no; to the contrary, true science finds itself sidling up beside God’s young earth pronouncement consistently.  A host of these Book endorsements are reviewed here on GodSaidManSaid.  Be of good cheer, saints: your Holy Book remains and will continue to remain undefeated.  All the world’s books and their knowledge must genuflect before the Word of God.

GodSaidManSaid has published a treasure-trove of research concerning Noah, his ark, and the global flood and now Noah is back in the news.  Everywhere we look, we see Noah—on every continent, on every mountaintop, and from a host of ancient societal records.

All over this earth, evidence of a catastrophic, Noahitic-like flood consistently emerges.  The following excerpts are from the GodSaidManSaid feature “Noah’s Ark and Societal Records:”  

The following excerpts are from the July 21, 2007 issue of Science News, under the heading, “Birth of an Island: Megaflood severed Europe from Britain:”

Hundreds of thousands of years ago, as an ice age was ending, the spillover from an immense glacial lake in northern Europe sliced through a broad range that for millions of years had connected what is now England to the continent.  The flood that resulted, one of the largest that scientists have ever identified, quickly created a breach that makes Britain the island that it is today.

A sonar survey just south of England reveals a 100-km-long, submerged feature that scientists have dubbed the Northern Paleovalley.  This valley, which contains little if any sediment, is as much as 50-m deep in spots, says Gupta.  Large, flat-topped islands in the valley have streamlined shapes, suggesting that they were carved by massive amounts of water flowing over what had been dry land.  Broad grooves carved into the bedrock, some of them at least 100-m wide and 15-km long, curve to follow the valley’s terrain—a hint that the features were quickly created by a colossal deluge. 

The size of the paleovalley’s islands suggests that the floodwaters could have run as much as 20-m deep, says Gupta.  Considering the width of the now-submerged valley, the scouring flow that created it could have carried about 1 million cubic meters every second and raged for months, he adds. 

The purported flood probably rivaled the floods that scoured portions of the northwestern United States at the end of the most recent ice age, says Philip Gibbard, a geologist at the University of Cambridge in England. [End of quote]

According to an article reported in the January 1999 issue of Discover magazine titled, “Forty Days and Forty Nights, More or Less,” a great flood of possibly Noahitic proportion did take place in ancient times.  I’m quoting ¼th of the article:

About 7,500 years ago [they’re off by about 3,000 years], a flood poured ten cubic miles of water a day—130 times more than flows over Niagara Falls—from the Mediterranean Sea into the Black Sea, abruptly turning the formerly freshwater lake into a brackish inland sea. 

The evidence has been slowly accumulating over the past five years.  In 1993, William Ryan and Walter Pitman of Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory dug up cores of sediment from the bottom of the Black Sea.  The core samples showed that the sea’s outer margins had once been dry land and that it had been two-thirds its present size.  Furthermore, over the entire sea bottom was a thin, uniform layer of sediment that could only have been deposited during a flood.

This past year, even more evidence came to light when researchers collected sediment samples from several new, nearby sites.  “If there had been a flood, there would have been a flood everywhere,” says Ryan, “so we know that we had to find the same features—the same evidence that the Black Sea had been smaller.”  The new samples are consistent with that story. [End of quote]

In an article in The Smithsonian written by James Trefil, under the heading, “Evidence for a Flood,” he reports on the research of Columbia University geologists Ryan and Pitman.  Trefil reports on the research that claims that antediluvian “ocean levels were about 400 feet lower than they are today” and that “the east coast of the United States was 75 to 150 miles farther out than it is today, and places like Manhattan and Baltimore would have been inland cities.”  Of course, this was a result of God opening the windows of heaven and pouring water down for forty days and forty nights.

The core samples taken by Ryan and Pitman from the area of the Black Sea lead them to believe that a flood of Noahitic proportion actually occurred, although they don’t make the complete jump to global.  The following paragraph is from The Smithsonian:

It was this event that Pitman and Ryan believe could be the flood recorded in the Book of Genesis.  The salt water poured through the deepening channel, creating a waterfall 200 times the volume of Niagara Falls (anyone who has ever traveled to the base of the falls on the Maid of the Mist will have a sense of the power involved).  In a single day, enough water came through the channel to cover Manhattan to a depth of at least two times the height of the Word Trade Center, and the roar of cascading water would have been audible at least 100 miles away. [End of quote]

The following information is quoted from the November 2007 issue of Discover magazine under the title, “Did a Comet Cause the Great Flood?”  This story reviews discoveries made by environmental archaeologist Bruce Masse of Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Masse believes that he has uncovered evidence that a gigantic comet crashed into the Indian Ocean several thousand years ago, and nearly wiped out all life on the planet.  What’s more, he thinks that clues about the catastrophe are hiding in plain sight, embedded in the creation stories of cultural groups around the world.

Masse’s epiphany came while poring over Hawaiian oral histories regarding the goddess Pele and wondering what they might reveal about the lava flows that episodically destroy human settlements and create new tracts of land.  He reasoned that even though the stories are often clouded by exaggerations and mystical explanations, many may refer to actual incidents.  He tested his hypothesis by cross-checking carbon-14 ages for the lava flows against dates included in royal Hawaiian genealogies.  The result: Several flows matched up with specific reigns associated with them in the oral histories. Other myths, Masse theorizes, hold similar clues. 

Masse’s biggest idea is that some 5,000 years ago, a 3-mile-wide ball of rock and ice swung around the sun and smashed into the ocean off the coast of Madagascar.  The ensuing cataclysm sent a series of 600-foot-high tsunamis crashing against the world’s coastlines and injected plumes of superheated water vapor and aerosol particulates into the atmosphere.  Within hours, the infusion of heat and moisture blasted its way into jet streams and spawned superhurricanes that pummeled the other side of the planet.  For about a week, material ejected into the atmosphere plunged the world into darkness.  All told, up to 80 percent of the world’s population may have perished, making it the single most lethal event in history.  [End of quote]

Masse is getting close, but he is still short of the correct assessment.

The great destruction cited by Masse is said to have happened at the end of the Permian period, where it is estimated that 70% of land species and 95% of ocean species were destroyed.  They keep tripping over the truth but refuse to acknowledge the obvious. [End of quotes]

From the GodSaidManSaid feature, “Noah’s Ark—Fact or Fiction (Updated):”

Many ancient non-Jewish and non-Christian civilizations have passed down accounts of the flood.  One of the world’s oldest, the Miao or Miautso of China, passed down this story from generation to generation:

So it poured forty days in sheets and torrents.
Then fifty-five days of misting and drizzle.
The waters surmounted the mountains and ranges.
An earth with no earth upon which to take refuge!
A world with no foothold where one might subsist!
The people were baffled, impotent and ruined,
Despairing, horror-stricken, diminished and finished.
But the Patriarch Nuah was righteous.
The Matriarch Gaw Bo-Lu-en upright.
Built a boat very wide.
Made a ship very vast.
Their household entire got aboard and were floated,
The family complete rode the deluge in safety.
The animals with him were female and male.
The birds went along and were mated in pairs.
When the time was fulfilled, God commanded the waters.
The day had arrived, the floodwaters receded.
Then Nuah liberated a dove from their refuge,
Sent a bird to go forth and bring again tidings.
The flood has gone down into lake and to ocean;
The mud was confined to the pools and hollows.
There was land once again where man might reside;
There was a place in the earth now to rear habitations.
Buffalo then were brought, an obligation to God,
Fatter cattle became sacrifice to the Mighty.
The Divine One then gave them His blessing;
Their God then bestowed His good graces.

The following two paragraphs are from the December 2000-February 2001 issue of Creation under the heading, “Uncanny Coherence to Noah’s Account.”  The excerpt reads:

There are at least 500 legends of a worldwide deluge.  Many of these show remarkable similarities, with many aspects similar to the details about Noah’s Flood in the Bible. 

We are left with a few options.  Perhaps all of these peoples of these remote civilizations had different flood experiences that, by chance, had all these features in common, on which they based their stories.  However, the more reasonable alternative is that these legends all find their root in the same one global Flood experience that Genesis records.

The following information is from an article titled, “Time, Life, and History in the Light of 25,000 Radiocarbon Dates:”

When carbon-14 data is “correctly” calibrated, and 25,000 radiocarbon dates are graphed, the results show evidence of a great peak of death about 4,000 years ago.

Consider these geological facts that certify the Bible’s account of Noah’s ark:

    1. All the mountains of the world have been underwater at some time or times in the past, as indicated by sedimentary rocks and marine fossils near their summits. 
    2. Most of the earth’s crust consists of sedimentary rocks which are formed almost entirely underwater.
    3. All sedimentary formations appear to have been formed rapidly—even catastrophically. [End of quotes]

Proofs of the global deluge arise with such regularity that it’s a wonder the skeptics can still show their faces.  [End of quotes]

In 2016, the world’s media was abuzz with accounts of a catastrophic flood occurring in China that seemed to confirm the ancient Chinese account of a global flood and a Noahitic-type hero.  Some of the published headlines included:

New York Times, August 4, 2016: “Scientific Evidence of Flood May Give Credence to Legend of China’s First Dynasty.” 

NewScientist.com: “First Evidence of Legendary Flood Reveals China’s Origin Story.” 

UK Telegraph, August 5, 2016: “First Evidence of Legendary Chinese Flood May Rewrite History.” 

Washington Post, August 4, 2016: “Legends Say China Began in a Great Flood.  Scientists Just Found Evidence that the Flood was Real.” 

AncientPatriarchs.WordPress.com, February 8, 2016, “Chinese Mythology Clarified by Miao Legend Confirms Noah’s Flood History.” 

For more detail on the amazing China issue, read the GodSaidManSaid feature “Evidence of a Legendary Flood Keeps Flooding In.” 

The headline in the February 18, 2017 issue of Science News reads, “Ancient Deluge Drenched Sahara.”  Excerpts follow:

Thousands of years ago, it didn’t just rain on the Sahara.  It poured.  Grasslands, trees, lakes, and rivers once covered North Africa’s now-arid, unforgiving landscape.  Form about 11,000 to 5,000 years ago, much higher rainfall rates than previously estimated created that “Green Sahara,” say geologist Jessica Tierney of the University of Arizona in Tucson and colleagues.  Extensive ground cover, combined with reductions of airborne dust, intensified water evaporation into the atmosphere, leading to monsoon-like conditions, the scientists report January 18 in Science Advances[End of quote]

Geologist Dr. Timothy Clarey reviews the latest research that absolutely certifies a global flood.  The headline of his feature published in the March 2017 issue of Acts and Facts reads, “South America Shows the Flood Progression.”  Excerpts follow:

New research confirms that the Flood recorded in Genesis was global.  It also reflects the exact step-by-step Biblical account of the floodwaters’ progression. 

In previous articles, I described ICR’s Column Project, a research initiative in which we are building a database of stratigraphic columns from across the world.  At that point, we’d only completed North America and Africa, compiling stratigraphic information for more than 1,100 boreholes—oil wellbores, outcrops, cores, cross-sections, and seismic data—over these two great landmasses. 

Most recently, we’ve added 404 columns across South America, giving a total of over 1,500 compiled stratigraphic columns from around the world.  This report describes some of the results of that study and gives compelling confirmation of the Biblical Flood account described in Genesis 7. 

What do we see?  In Figures 1-6, we show the thickness of the six mega sequences across South America.  The Sauk is the earliest Flood layer, followed by Tippecanoe, Kaskaskia, Absaroka, Zuni, and finally, the youngest layer, Tejas.  Note how the coverage of the continent steadily increases with each successive layer, marking the Flood’s progression. 

 

These data indicate the Flood started out slowly, inundating limited areas at first but increasing a little more each time as the first mega sequences were deposited, perhaps during the first 40 days (Sauk, Tippecanoe, Kaskaskia).  Later, during the deposition of the Absaroka mega sequence, the coverage dramatically increased until the Flood appears to have reached a maximum coverage level in the Zuni mega sequence, possibly around Day 150.  Fittingly, this is the exact same maximum level observed across North America and Africa, indicating a truly global event.  Finally, the Tejas mega sequence seems to show the floodwaters receding—post-Day 150 of the Flood—and accordingly shows a similar coverage level to the Zuni. 

The geology of South America confirms God’s Word; the columns across the continent show a clear progression of the floodwaters, just as described in Genesis 7[End of quotes]

According to Bishop Ussher’s book The Annals of the World, Sunday, December 7, 2349 BC, Noah and his family, and the creatures two-by-two, entered into the ark that would carry them upon the flood waters that would cover and destroy the entire earth.  GodSaidManSaid has published a plethora of features on Noah’s Ark, which has been confirmed repetitively via geology, paleontology, archaeology, microbiology, genetics, ancient societal records, and more—yet the unbelievers cling (and I mean cling) to their unbelief.  Why such relentless rejection of the obvious?  Jesus Christ states it clearly in John 3:19-20:

19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.   

It is just that simple. 

GOD SAID, Genesis 6:12-17:

12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.

16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.

17 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.

GOD SAID, Genesis 7:18-24:

18 And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.

19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.

20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.

21 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:

22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.

23 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.

24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.

MAN SAID: There was no “Noah’s Ark”—this is a bunch of Sunday-school foolishness!

Now you have THE RECORD.
