According to the bible it was deluge(flood).. the people back then lauhed at Noah and his family because it never rained.<quoted text>
It wasn't, you know.
Well, not according to Langoliers.
"Was there a global flood?
No. The flood of Noah was a Euphrates River flood in southern Sumer similar to the flood of 1954 in southern Iraq. The "earth" in Genesis 7:17-18 refers to the ground/land in the flooded region, not the entire planet."
That's what the man posted.
Perhaps you should have words with him?
Or maybe he needs to have words with you?
(genesis 6:17)“And as for me, here I am bringing the deluge of waters upon the earth to bring to ruin all flesh in which the force of life is active from under the heavens. Everything that is in the earth will expire".
The water that came down came from the thermosphere. As you read Genesis it says the God opened the heavens. When the earth became exposed all water and the thermosphere came down because the water cooled and fell. This and debris from space would have also have fell.
if you want to understand the bible it is better to let scripture interpret scripture, Otherwise you get confusion and then division.
The bible is very complex,so reading it once will not get understanding it. many of it uses symbolism,literal,metaphors and allegories and other literary terms to hel the reader understand it.
the flood is mention several times in the bible several times. it never mentions as the euphrates river.
