Noah’s Flood—It Was Global!

A Local or Global Flood?

This is Ken Ham, and we’ve produced the family-friendly Answers Bible Curriculum.


Genesis seven tells us that during the Flood of Noah’s day, the water covered all the high hills. Now, some people have argued that Noah’s Flood was just a local flood in the Mesopotamian valley. But how could a local flood explain all of the mountains being covered in about 20 feet of water?

Water seeks its own level. It won’t even cover all the hills in one area without spilling into other areas. And, besides, the Flood lasted over a year. No small, regional flood has ever lasted that long!

So, you can’t claim the Bible teaches a local Flood without completely ignoring what the text says and reading your own ideas into it.

The Flood—it was global!
