Flood Legends

The worldwide catastrophic Flood, recorded in the Bible (Genesis 6–8) was a real event that affected real people. If there never was a worldwide Flood, then why are there so many stories about it?

Flood legends abound globally across many cultures and point to the reality of the global Flood. It is to be expected that the stories of the Flood would contain not only profound similarities but also differences. These differences would be due to both the confusion of tongues at Babel (Genesis 11) and the varying relationships to the true God which cultures had.
