I recently had the pleasure (lol) of watching a dated Christian “documentary” about a group of gentlemen with too much time and money looking for Noah’s Ark. They started looking high on Mt. Ararat (in eastern Turkey) and then moved to hills of western Iran. They needn’t have bothered looking where they were looking, there is not enough water in the Earth’s hydrologic system to get a large boat anywhere close to the elevations they were searching at.
According to a recent post by Brook Wilensky-Lanford on religiondispatches.org:
I hate to break it to you, but Noah’s Flood is not a real thing. As geologist David Mongomery wrote in his recent history, The Rocks Don’t Lie, . . . science knows better.
Let me state for the record: many archaelogists and geologists have discovered evidence for many different floods, some of them large, or sudden, or both. But they all have end points, high water marks if you will. They certainly did not cover the entire earth. (Sorry, creationists.)
Genesis is not literal history folks. Deal with it!
