    Dating the Flood back 650 years

    Answers in Genesis, etc, date the Flood to be 2350 BC while the pyramids of Giza are dated at 2550 BC. But it seems that a more Biblical dating of the Flood is actually about 3000 BC.

    This makes the Biblical record seem more reliable though I still believe in an old earth.

    All of the archaeological and geological evidence says that there was no 'The Flood'.

    This makes the Biblical 'record' pure fiction.

    I thought this video presents some pretty good evidence of a global Flood:

    I don't really want to contribute to the hits on a global flood video.
    What is some of the evidence?

    I have more experience with floods than I ever wanted, but it's left me with a few observations. First, when you are surrounded by water, it's not difficult to believe the entire world is flooded. Second, anyone with a boat has an advantage during a flood.

    So, here we have the most likely scenario for a story told by any flood victim at any point in history. There is a natural progression by which stories become more interesting through time as it is repeated. We start off with a man who lived by a river with his family and their pet sheep, Wooly. Our man is clever and decides a raft would be useful to have. The raft comes in handy when it rains for four days and he is able to save his flock from drowning.

    Take this completely plausible story and run it through 14 generation and we get Noah and the Ark. In a sense, it's all true, except for the incredible parts. Of all the reasons to disbelieve any particular detail of a story, "It's impossible," is still number one.

    Which do you think is more correct and why?

    In the video it shows there are 4 versions of the genealogies. The version most English Bibles use involve 30's but 3 of the 4 versions involve 130's. So it seems 130's are the correct numbers.

    Well it says that there are ocean floor fossils on some mountains... I recommend watching it - it has 1.4 million views so your viewing wouldn't make much difference.

    Uh-huh.
    Actually, they're IN some mountains, but, yeah. That's something of a PRATT.
    Mountains formed by upthrust can have all kinds of things in them.
    I recommend watching it -
    Well if fossils in mountain tops is the best evidence in it, imma go with cold day in Hell.
    it has 1.4 million views so your viewing wouldn't make much difference.
    Not exactly the point of my refusal....

    You only asked for an example so I just mentioned the one I could understand that I was already familiar with. It also talks about catastrophic plate tectonics, dinosaur graveyards, tsunamis, and "megasequences". BTW you can double the playback speed. I barely follow what it is saying so I would rather you check out the video for yourself rather than having me try and summarise what it is saying.
