The Real Flood and the Flood Legends

Flood Legends

by Ken Ham

Part 1


This is Ken Ham, heading up the ministry that built a full-size evangelistic Noah’s Ark.


All last week, we looked at common questions about Noah’s Ark. But how do we really know the Bible is right about the global Flood and Ark?

One confirmation is the Flood legends found in cultures all over the world—from Australia to Mexico to China. After the Flood and the rebellion at the Tower of Babel, people were dispersed and sent around the world. They took with them the account of the Flood from their ancestor Noah and his sons. Over time, this true account got twisted as it was handed down to each new generation. But the real account is preserved for us in the Bible.

These different flood legends confirm there really was a global Flood, just like the Bible says.
