Noah’s Flood—It Was Global!

Was the Flood Global?

This is Ken Ham, president of the brand-new Noah’s Ark attraction, Ark Encounter.


In order to fit millions of years into Scripture, many Christians argue that Noah’s Flood was just a local event in Mesopotamia. But this isn’t what the Bible says!

You see, Genesis tells us that the water covered even the highest hills “under the entire heavens.” And it emphasizes that every living thing on land died except those on the Ark. If the Flood was just local, how were all the high hills flooded with water?

And how did everything on land die? Birds could have flown off and animals and people could have run away to higher ground.

And remember Noah’s Flood lasted over a year! You see, local floods, they don’t last nearly that long. The Bible couldn’t be more clear—this was a global event.
