"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."
"Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment."
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."
Scientific Evidence Supports Noah and The Great Deluge (Flood)
The biblical record of Noah and The Great Deluge is a popular target for heathens to mock and scorn the Bible. They often claim the biblical account of Noah was copied from The Epic of Gilgamesh. Of course the story of Noah was not copied from that laughable myth. What The Epic of Gilgamesh does point to is the fact that there was an actual flood that covered the earth and this is the explanation of it from the Mesopotamia region.
A recent article from the Institute For Creation Research highlights how new science is confirming the biblical account of the flood:
"A new study reported in the journal Science has advanced our knowledge of rare DNA variation associated with gene regions in the human genome. By applying a demographics-based model to the data, researchers discovered that the human genome began to rapidly diversify about 5,000 years ago. Remarkably, this data coincides closely with biblical models of rapid diversification of humans after the global flood...
The authors wrote, "The maximum likelihood time for accelerated growth was 5,115 years ago." Old-earth proponents now have a new challenge: to explain why—after millions of years of hardly any genetic variation among modern humans—human genomic diversity exploded only within the last five thousand years?
However, the same data conforms to and dramatically confirms biblical history. Since the author's date represents the maximum time, the actual DNA diversification event probably occurred even sooner. A biblical time scale indicates that a global flood occurred about 4,500 years ago, and this closely correlates with the time scale of the researcher's estimate."
Was the story of Noah's Ark true? Archaeologist who found the Titanic claims Biblical flood DID happen 12,000 years ago
"'We went in there to look for the flood,' Mr Ballard told ABC News. 'Not just a slow moving, advancing rise of sea level, but a really big flood that then stayed... The land that went under stayed under.'
The team found an ancient shoreline which Mr Ballard believes is proof such an event did take place.
He believes that, by using carbon dating shells found along the shoreline four hundred feet below the surface, it took place around 5,000 BC."
His use of carbon dating roughly coincides with the date in the Bible for the worldwide flood that covered the entire earth. The other dates in this article and the liberal views of the Rabbi who disputes the ages of the Patriarchs I wholeheartedly disagree with. I don't want to throw the baby out with the bathwater. So, even though I disagree with numerous things in the above article, I have decided to quote the relevant part that coincides with the biblical account.
