GeneDouglas Noah's Ark -- Historical? 0 Jul 13 2008, 3:22 PM EDT by GeneDouglas

The Catholic Encyclopedia uses the proliferation of flood legends around the world as evidence of the reality of the Noah's Ark story. However, the same story says that everybody except the passengers of the ark died. So how did people all around the world survive to tell those stories?

Or are they saying that Noah's Ark passengers were the ancestors of all people, including Chinese, North and South American Indians, Australian Aboriginese, and Africans?

One statement is that "Earth" really meant "land." So not everybody in the world was involved. In that case, why do they cite flood stories all over the world as evidence of the literal truth of the Noah story?

The Bible states that Noah grew grapes after the flood. However, if the land were submerged for a year, would that not have killed all of the plants in the world, too?

The story says that a dove came back with the branch of an olive tree, with its leaves. Supposing that meant a twig, how would the dove have had the strength to pull the twig from the tree?

Do you find this valuable?
