How did people get from where the Ark landed in the Middle East to the Americas or Australia?
Well, the Flood was followed by the dispersion at the Tower of Babel. God confused the people’s language, forcing them to spread out and fill the earth. This got people moving.
And the Flood was also followed by the Ice Age. Ocean levels were dramatically lowered, exposing land bridges—including a bridge between what is now Russia and Alaska. This allowed people to walk to the Americas.
Land bridges and island hopping also allowed people to get to Australia. Other groups took boats and set out to explore the new world.
Starting with God’s Word, we can explain human migration.
