A Flood of Truth - Part 4 – Strong Scientific Support - Anchored by Truth - May 18, 2021 by Wave 94 published on 2021-05-18T16:13:00Z Let’s start by reminding people that the Bible makes it clear that the story of Noah is one of the major steps in God’s unfolding plan of redemption. But it couldn’t be a real step in a real plan of redemption if the story wasn’t real history. So, that’s the first really big point. The Bible treats the story of Noah as literal history. A second major point is that because Noah’s story is real we should be able to find evidence of the story’s historicity in at least four different areas: the origin and after effects of the flood itself, the ark, the animals, and anthropology and genetics. By origin I’m obviously thinking about the very basic question of where did all that water come from? By after effects I’m including the paleontological and geological evidence that we should be able to see if the earth was at one time suddenly submerged under water. The questions about the ark and the animals are pretty self-evident. By anthropology and genetics I’m referring to the fact that flood stories exist in hundreds of different cultures around the world and that we can see evidence of a major bottleneck in the world’s population today by looking at DNA. And a third major point is that, unlike some personalities from the Bible, the Bible never tells us that Noah had any special ability. The only reason we know about Noah today is because in a world of unrighteous people Noah was willing to obey God.
