Where is the evidence for Noah’s Flood?

“For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water. Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:”
2 PETER 3:5 - 6

All over the earth, there is evidence of Noah’s Flood, from the sea beds to the mountain tops. Whether you travel by car, train or plane, the physical features of the earth’s terrain clearly indicate a catastrophic past. From canyons and craters, to coal beds and caverns, the whole earth testifies of God’s terrible judgment on sin.

Approximately 75% of the earth’s crust is sedimentary rock. These layers of sand, soil and material, which show evidence of being mostly laid down by water, were once soft like mud, but now hardened like stone. Buried in these sedimentary layers are billions of dead things (fossils of plants and animals) buried very, very quickly. The evidence all over the earth is staring everyone in the face!

Sign of Design: Eyes in different creatures are designed to meet their differing needs. Humans need good resolution and detail, whereas a fly needs speed. We see a fluorescent lamp as flickering at 10 Hz (cycles per second) but it looks stable to us at 20 Hz. A fly can detect a flicker of 200 Hz, so a normal movie would look to it like a slide show!

While driving through New Mexico, I enjoyed seeing the mountains and hills with defined layers in them. It looked a lot like the handful of dirt that settles when shaken up in a glass of water!

That is fascinating about the fly's vision. I read in a book that the human eye will evolve over the next hundreds of years to adapt better at viewing computer screens! Where did they get that? It is all based from the faulty theory that our eyes evolved in the past to be used in hunting and things like that.

Great verse! I've read 2 Peter several times but never really stopped to look at that verse. Although I know faith is a big part of being a Christian, it's encouraging to see proof in the world around me. Thanks for writing this post.

I think it's sad that nowadays we need some complex scientific explanation for proof instead of looking around and having simple faith.
