If the Flood of Noah really did cover the whole earth as the Bible describes, we should find billions of fossils (dead creatures turned to stone) over all the world’s continents. And that is exactly what is found. Fossils are found on the highest mountains. Fossils are found in the middle of continents where there is no water present today. Fossils are found in the cliffs at the seashore. During the worldwide Flood of Noah, the conditions were perfect for fossils to be made. The worldwide discovery of fossils would not occur if the Flood was just a local event.
Sedimentary rock is rock laid down by water. If Noah’s Flood covered the whole earth, we should see layers of sedimentary rock extending great distances across the continents in our world today, shouldn’t we? And that is exactly what we find. This would not be found if the Flood were just a local event on one continent.
If the Flood of Noah destroyed the whole world, and only Noah and his family survived, don’t you think stories about such a huge catastrophe would have been passed down to the later generations who descended from Noah? And that is exactly what we find. In fact, there are at least 200 stories about a worldwide Flood from cultures all over the world. These would not be found if the Flood was just a local event.
