The Origin of the Flood

January 5th offers us a great opportunity to watch a National Geographic special which guesses as to the origin of flood in Old Testament Noah's times.

There are some scholars that point to texts written thousands of years before the Bible that describe a flood and say that the Bible story comes from those stories.

Archaeologist Jeff Rose says these pre-biblical stories have some merit because the destructive forces of water in a once tropical region, considered by some to have been the Garden of Eden, might have inspired the biblical story of Noah’s Ark and the great flood.
