Therefore, so is the Bible they wrote.
You see the difficulty?
The magnitude of the flood made the people to think that the flood were global.
Remember, population drift started from the east between Africa, the middle east and the entire east.

Far east and middle east are never seen as closer.
The issue you can not counter was that, there was flood the middle easterners thought was global, due to the magnitude of the flood.

The flood indeed was deadly. So, even though it was not global, there was a flood, no one can dispute that.
The only flood in the area that falls into the Biblical slot is dated to 2900 BC so if the Bible can stretch there it works. And like we have been telling you there was no interruption to the rest of the world and all the civilizations around the world that were flourishing both at 2900 BC or 2350 BC.

None of the Biblical stories fit the rest of the world civilizations going on at the time that the Hebrews were writing their opus.

Why do you suppose a God would contact a small tribe of wandering goat herders in the Middle East and not the big civilizations in China and India and the Indus valley Civilizations that wouldn't have to go through the crap that the goat herders did??

No!
But the writers of the bible that were wrong based on their level of education.
But they were not other wrong because the flood was devastating and large, making the people then, to think it was global or universal.

So you understand that all the peripheral stuff about the Biblical story goes away?

There is no animals being imported from all over the world (Koala bears, Platypus's, anteaters, Panda bears, etc.) No Noah trying to build a boat that is impossible for him, or anybody, to build at the time....hell even now.

There is no Ark bouncing around on the waves for almost a year....no birds being thrown out of the Ark to check for dry land. Floods such as the big one that hit the Mesopotamian area in 2900 BC generally go away within days....weeks at most. Deserts tend to suck up flood water pretty quickly.

After the flood there was no need for Noah's sons and daughter-in-laws to split and go to the far 'corners' of the earth to re-establish civilization and establish the black race in Africa....because we know that the blacks were already there, and in fact we evolved from them.

Yeah, that flood really needs to go away, its a stupid story in light of what we know to be true today.

I'm glad to see you finally agree Charles. Welcome to the real world.

No!
If truly the bible is false, as well the faith according to your assertions, the faith would have been long dead. But the reverse was the case.

I'm not religous and I don't support documented religious views. I do accept the non-religious concept of fixed species when it comes to the origin of species. Instead of descent with modification I see common desegn. I base this conclusion on the biological reproductive species term which states a species reproduce the same fertile off-spring species.

When you say that you are not religious then claim a designer it seems to me that you are contradicting yourself.

How do you feel about the fact that our ancestors mated with neanderthals and the connection that that makes with the prior Homo species. And that we non-Africans carry a small percentage of Neanderthal genes/blood
