Noah’s Flood—It Was Global!


Part 4



This is Ken Ham, inviting you to visit the full-size Noah’s Ark attraction in Northern Kentucky.


Some Christians argue that Noah’s flood was just a local flood in the Mesopotamian Valley. But this doesn’t match with what the Bible says. It uses phrases like “all the high mountains under the whole heaven were covered” … and “all the flesh died that moved on the earth.”

Now, clearly Genesis is describing a global flood. And this makes sense—God’s purpose was to judge all of wicked humanity.

The only reason some people say this Flood was local is that they’re trying to fit millions of years into the Bible. If the Flood was global, it means the rock layers were laid down quickly, not over millions of years.

We shouldn’t reinterpret God’s Word in light of man’s ideas.
