No. It's a myth of cultures worldwide. It's factually NOT just a Hebrew myth. If it was just a Hebrew myth and no other culture spoke of it, you would have a great point. But you don't.<quoted text>
"Instead of trying to prove it didn't happen, open minds should be investigating the possibilities if it could have happened and forget the theism angle."
Open religious minds did investigate the possibility that there was a flood. It happened in the late 1600's / early 1700's when the scientists of the day (naturalists) started noticing things that did not fit in with a universal deluge.
Since those early time hundreds if not thousands of scientists have been looking for ANY sign of Noah's flood.
To sum up the scientific communities findings about a universal flood....NOTHING happened, it's a Hebrew myth.
Other interesting facts have came to light in the searches people have made for or against the flood. Most (most) all mountains once laid flat and most (most) all sea/ocean floors once were sea level. That means at various times in the earth's aging, there was less land mass than now and more water mass. Sea fossils have been found near and on the tops of most mountains on this earth and fishing vessels are still pulling up sea fossils from hundreds of feet down laying on the sea floor from all over the earth. Drop stones from glaciers have been and still are being found at different depths in the oceans and on land where glaciers were never thought to have existed. New minds are having the opinion their is more water in the earth then there is on the earth.
The above is growing evidence that the possibility of this earth having flooded itself one or more times during it's aging and shape shifting is more and more probable thought still not provable.
