If the Flood was local, why would God:
Have Noah build an ark? Why would the ark be 500 feet long? Why would He have all the animals come on board?
If it was local, all God had to do is tell Noah’s family to move out of the valley. And for the animals, they would not have been effect. This, the local flood believers do not adequately answer! They can’t answer without lying or looking foolish.
Arguments that people use to say that the Flood was not worldwide:
There are no water stains on the Pyramids.
Where did all this water come from?
Where did all this water go to?
For the first question the explanation is simple. Since when were water stains indelible marks that can withstand the test of time (thousands of years through all kinds of weather)? A water mark is not something that last permanently. And with the wind blowing the sand, it would wear anything on the surface away! Also, this is assuming that the Pyramids were built before Noah’s Flood.
Where did all the water come from? If these people read the Bible more carefully, they will know that there is water above the heaven (atmosphere) as told in the Creation Story. We also read of the “windows of heaven.” Then, there is the Great Deep of water that is BELOW the earth (not just what is WITHIN the earth). Of course, being a student of the flat earth you know this. But even before you talk to these people about the flat earth, if they just read the Creation Story carefully, they will also be told this.
We know that water seeks its own level but the heliocentric people ignore this. Whatever water that fell on the earth would be drained off and go below the earth. This would be the same areas of the world where the tides come from and return to, but that’s another story.
Finally, for those good Christians who don’t fall for the lie that all the races came from one race of people, this local Flood would account for where the other races came from after the Flood and that’s why, in part, they believe the Local Flood story.
Some of the people who hold onto the Local Flood do so because they say how can various and diverse races come from one couple (of the White race)? Now, these people are good people who do know a lot of Bible truths, but they are attracted to the Local Flood idea to explain how we still have Negroes and Asiatic people today.
We know that the various and diverse races did not spring all from one race. White people do not produce Asians and vice versa. As God said, Kind produces after their own kind. Even the very liberal and Communist people know that this is true for animals, but they don’t admit this for humans, otherwise, it would destroy their argument and reason for a New World Order of a mix-race multitude. If two pure-bred Negroes have children, they will ALWAYS be like their parents; they will be of the Negro race and not some other race. The Leftists try to show this is not true and what do they produce for evidence? A very rare albino, which Kent Hovind did, which is nothing more than an defect in the DNA where the skin does not produces pigmentation. But looking at such pictures you can tell that the person is definitely a Negro, with the facial features and hair texture being the same.
So, people who realise that we are being told lies from all quarters, and they know that the various races can only be produced by separate races, think that the only possible way for us to have diverse races today is that Noah’s Flood was local only; that the other races existed outside of the Flood, and, therefore, account for the different races today.
As a side note, let’s not get confused with the mixing of the races. They do NOT produce a new race but are a mixed race as the word implies. Other people use the word mongrel.
“If Noah’s Flood was worldwide, then where did the other races come from?”
Good question. When we read about the story of Noah and his family, we read about the animals that he took on the ark. Now, we know that not every land creature is mentioned but does it need to be mentioned? We know by the reading that it is implied, and other words are used, to describe this. Can you image if authors have to go into every bit of detail in order to explain something? Do you realise how long a book would have to be? The Bible would be much larger than needed if God were to write like this (as He inspired Prophets to write).
The Ark was very large as we are told. In fact, no ship after Noah’s was as large until thousands of years later, and that was in the 19th Century. Therefore, it would require more help than Noah’s family, which totalled eight people to feed and care for the animals. So, he needed help. It is very probable that these people were the servants from other races; that they came aboard the ship to do this. They will also be released afterwards and travel, over time to other parts of the world to populate those areas and do their job in maintaining those areas of the world by keeping the animals in check.
Some People Get Down Right Mean
Listening to some pastors who talk in support of a Local Flood, they get down right mean. There is Steven Anderson who has a YouTube channel that says words to the effect, “If you don’t believe in a local flood you are a blasphemer of God.” It really gets me how some Christians use the word “blasphemer” to anyone who disagrees with their version of the Bible. Well, if they were more informed, they would know that is not what qualifies as a blasphemer. If that was the case, I think there would be very few people in Heaven! When you think throughout history of all the good Christians that did not go to “the right church,” or that “the right church” did not exist at the time. Well, this Anderson guy said the same thing when he had a sermon on the flat earth – that anyone who believed in the flat earth was a blasphemer of God.
Dear Reader, even if you are a globe earth believe, I do NOT say that you are a blasphemer and that you will not be in Heaven. For this is not the qualifying factor to be in the heavenly Kingdom. But I’m sure you already know that.
The Critics Arguments for a Worldwide Flood
Then, there are those who build a “straw man” to show our side of the argument, as if to show that they are being objective. Yes, they do give some of the arguments of what worldwide Flood believes would say but only part of it.
There is one Christian Identity pastor who admits that there are fossils of sea creatures found on mountain tops. This is what Worldwide Flood believers use as a claim. But this pastor says that’s because of a local flood that happened there at some time in the past. Can you imagine how illogical that statement is! But here is where critics don’t examine the issue further.
How do you get a flood on a 14,000-foot mountain, for example, without the rest of the lower ground being flooded? This is where a flat earther knows the simple physics of “water seeks its own level” comes in at. You can’t have a flood on the top of a mountain without all the lower parts being flooded. If the flood came halfway up the mountain, that means the whole earth would have to be flooded up to that point. Otherwise, the water will keep draining off at the lowest point. In other words, you can’t have a flood on a mountain; you can heavy rain on a mountain; you can have a dam break and the valley flood but you’d never get a flood on a mountain. Don’t forget, it would not just have to be any flood but one where masses of earth move that suddenly captures fish and other creatures into the soil.
Yahweh, God made it quite plain in His perfect wording so as to make it understood that the Flood was worldwide when He said it covered the tops of the mountains. If it covered the mountain tops that means everything was covered. If only the small mountains were covered, that would leave the larger ones exposed and God did not say that there was some ground that was not covered. Therefore, it could only be a Worldwide Flood – exactly as the Bible described.
