Noah's Flood - was it local or world wide?

This is a very important question --was it a local flood or worldwide in scope?

You have probably heard 'arguments' on both sides.

Interestingly, this question was not even up for 'debate' until about 200 or so years ago.

Hmmm.  Isn't that about the time that the theory of evolution began?

Hmmm. Yes. 

So there seems to be a 'world view' situation going on here.

World view?


Those with the old earth glasses (evolutionary thinking) explain the various rock layers around the world as being due to slow deposition of mud, etc. over millions of years and they also say that Noah's flood never happened or if it did it was just a local flood and not worldwide as the Bible states.

On the other side of the 'debate', those with young earth glasses attribute those same rock layers to deposits laid down during Noah's Flood.

So which view is correct and what difference does it make?

This important article by John Whitcomb, Th.D, has some answers.  HERE'S THE LINK
