Science or Religion?

Noah's Flood:Myth or Scientific Fact?

Picture: Rock of Gibraltar,called the one of the Gates of Hercules in ancient times.Site of a once solid mountain range that split open, allowing the Atlantic ocean to flood the Mediterranean Basin.

For over 150 years, some so called “scientists”, have decreed that the Genesis account in the Christian Bible was a fairy tale myth and not a “scientific” fact.

Yet as more deep sea drilling is done of the ocean floor, evidence is proving that such a world wide flood did occur.
For seekers of true scientific proofs I recommend reading the following book to begin your search for the validity or even the possibility that there was a Noah’s Flood. The book dose not promotes religion and avoids the issue. It does present fact after fact such as the following:

  • Barley roots along with other plant material in core samples from the Mediterranean sea floor
  • Fresh water clam shells in core samples from the Mediterranean sea floor
  • A huge debris fan spread out over the Mediterranean sea floor eastward from the Straits of Gibraltar
  • Pebble beach shorelines over 300 feet below the surface of the Black Sea
  • Smooth polished rocks retrieved from a former stream bed found in a buried gorge at the site of the Aswan Dam. At one time that running stream flowed into the Mediterranean sea basin at a level hundreds of feet below the present sea level of the Mediterranean sea
  • Mosaic murals’ found in the mountains adjacent to the Mediterranean Sea, of a huge flood that inundated village locations that were at the time of the flood, on the floor of the Mediterranean basin.

The book is available and still in print.

Noah's Flood: The New Scientific Discoveries About The Event That Changed History

Another study from British scientists, lead by Chris Turney, a geologist at the University of Exeter, was published in the journal, Quaternary Science Reviews in September 14 ,2007.The study using radiocarbon dating and archaeological evidence concluded the following:

  • A flood some 8,300 years ago covered 73,000 square kilometers of the Black Sea Basin over a 34-year period, causing mass displacement of people.
  • After the flood there was a sudden expansion of farming and pottery production across the European continent.
  • When the flood happened, farming seemed to stop but it was re-established a generation later across Europe.
  • People displaced by the flood took their skills to new areas previously populated by hunters and gatherers, where there had been no evidence of farming
  • From archaeological data on farming in Europe it was found that only a little bit of farming was done in Greece and the Balkans just before the flood.

With climate change increasing across the earth it is time to start public planning for these future events, rather than discussing “carbon credits” and so called “man made global warming”. The great flood is a fact. Only god haters spew out their constant diatribe that there is no God and state that science’s seeming purpose is to disprove religious delusions and so called superstitions. Well as it turns out, more true scientific studies and research are proving that the so called “superstitions” were reliable reports of actual events.

Will the general public ever hear any contrite and humble confessions of wrong from these so called “scientists”??

If the melting of the ice sheets and glaciers continues at its existing pace, it is theorized in the British study, that sea levels may rise close to 3 feet by the year 2100.This conservatively, would displace some estimated 145 million people from low lying coastal areas around the world according to the same study.

I say theorized, because there is the possibility the earths crust will deform from the additional weight of the water changing location and result in little change to existing shorelines.

Or, the shore lines will be little affected, due to possible expansion of the earth’s diameter from what some scientists theorize and call the expanding earth theory.

In simple terms, a very small group of people believe that the earth is actually expanding and of course simple math would tell you with any appreciable increase in the earths diameter, and with a constant amount of water as a given, the waterline would most likely recede.

But if the water level does rise, where are these people going to go?

These issues are real issues, not only for this generation but for the next generation. That Climate Change is constant, most scientists will agree on. It is the rate and direction that, we as a civilization need to determine and prepare for.

The discussion can not bear fruit when god hating zealots shout down, ignore and dismiss conflicting reports to their religious agenda.

All true scientists must support the belief in absolute truths. With out that adherence to the spirit of Truth, there is no science, only dictates and tyranny.

In the Soviet Union it was dictated that science must confirm to Communist Party Dogma. As a result the most brilliant of Russian scientists were sent to Gulags to die and Russian science was handicapped and stymied for a period of 20 years.

Stand up against the Party Line of Global Warming. Both faith and science go together. The whole of the True scientific method has the element of faith in it called: hypotheses. There is no escape from it; science research contains the element of faith. When a scientist proposes a thing to be true with out evidence, that is an act of faith. When he conducts his research that is exercising his faith.

Noah’s Flood is a fact, whether it is believed or not. The research and evidence proves it.

Going back to 1987 news reports were made of whale and other marine animal fossils being found at the top of some of the highest mountains in the Andes. Putting you cursor over the above link will take you to an article written in the NY Times.Here is an excerpt:

''For example,'' Dr. Novacek said, ''we found the oyster beds and sand dollars just beneath the lowest sediments containing land animals."

Please explain how their carcasses arrived at over 10,000 feet in altitude without at least jostling the oceans, just even a little bit.
