Where's your proof of a worldwide flood?
Remember, only credible and valid sources will do.
FROM THE GENESIS NARRATIVE........[47 reasons]
(59) The account in Genesis speaks of the flood being a universal event at least thirty times.
(60) God promised three times not to "smite [destroy - NKJ] every living thing" by a flood (Gen8:21; 9:11; 9:15). Three occurrences in Scripture indicates absolute truth.
(61) Following the flood, Eden was no longer discussed geographically. If it was a local flood, its general whereabouts would still be known. The total obliteration of the whole earth's geography is therefore inferred - such as by a global flood.
(62) The "waters above the firmament [earth - NKJ]" would not have been localised into a small area.(Gen 1:7)
(63) No rain on the earth before the flood speaks of a worldwide condition.(Gen 2:5)
(64) The whole earth was watered by a mist, prior to the flood.(Gen 2:6)
(65) The dawn of civilization had a high civilization (Genesis chapter 4). This was wiped out and did not recover for a long time.
(66) The long life spans of the pre-diluvial people indicates an entirely different biosphere.(Gen 5:5; 5:8; 5:11; etc)
(67) The subsequent decline in life span following the flood indicates a radically different biosphere.(Gen 23:1; 25:7)
(68) God described the pre-flood people as universally evil (Gen 6:5). He never described the post-flood people as universally evil, so something universal (ie. worldwide) must have happened to weed it out.
(69) Mankind had multiplied all over the earth (Gen 6:1), so the flood had to be global to destroy them all.
(70) God was sorry that he created all living creatures, not just a localised population of animal creatures.(Gen 6:6-7)
(71) The whole earth was seen by God as corrupt.(Gen 6:11-12)
(72) God decided to destroy the whole earth.(Gen 6:13)
(73) Everything that had breath was to die.(Gen 6:17)
(74) The purpose of the ark was to keep two of every breathing animal (ie. worldwide species) alive.(Gen 6:19)
(75) Two of every kind of animal and bird came to Noah, not just local fauna.(Gen 6:20)
(76) Noah had to collect samples of all food eaten, not just local foodstuffs.(Gen 6:21)
(77) God wanted the ark "to keep seed [species - NKJ] alive upon the face of the earth".(Gen 7:3)
(78) God promised to destroy every living thing on the earth.(Gen 7:4)
(79) The Hebrew word for flood "mabbul" only refers to Noah's flood, so it must have been different to all other floods.(Gen 7:10)
(80) All the "fountains of the great deep" broke up in one incident.(Gen 7:11)
(81) The "fountains of the great deep" would not have affected a simple, local land-based flood.(Gen 7:11)
(82) The opening of the windows of heaven (if this refers to "the waters above the firmament") would had a global impact.(Gen 7:11)
(83) The double superlative, "all the high mountains under all the heavens" ["all the high hills under the whole heaven" - NKJ], indicates a global covering.(Gen 7:19)
(84) The highest mountains were covered by 15 cubits (6.75m) of water.(Gen 7:20)
(85) The Hebrew word, "kasah", used to mean that the mountains were covered has a meaning of "overwhelming".(Gen 7:20)
(86) Every human died on the whole earth.(Gen 7:21)
(87) All living things on dry land, with "nephesh" life in them, died.(Gen 7:22)
(88) Every living thing on the earth was destroyed.(Gen 7:23)
(89) The floodwater remained at maximum height for 5 months.(Gen 7:24)
(90) The "fountains of the deep" were open for 5 months.(Gen 8:2)
