Scientists Discover Evidence of Massive Global Flood

The Bible tells us that about 4000 years ago, a man named Noah, got on an ark and saven days after God sealed him in, all hell broke loose to deliver the largest flood the world has ever seen.

Anthropologists tell us that in dozens and dozens of cases, people groups, tribes, clans, etc...will tell them, "Soon after the big flood, our people came here and started to do..."

What does this tell you?  It tells you that no matter where people are on planet earth they have a FLOOD STORY that starts off their history?

What else does it tell you?  It tells you that a lot of these stories have their basis in truth.

Today we find out that the Chinese also have a flood story that has been passed down through the generations...and that scientists are now coming up with proof that confirms something catastrophic really did happen about 4000 years ago involving a flood.  The story says the flood was so massive that "it threatened the very heavens."

Scientists have recently found evidence that might prove that the legendary Chinese Flood which took place in Central China four millenniums ago might have been real. The legend has it that there was a flood so high “it threatened the very heavens” and a hero, Yu the Great, who started the mythical Chinese Xia Dynasty. Now, scientists have proofs that the story is no longer a myth.

The legend has passed from generation to generation. However, according to a team of archaeologists and geologists from the Peking University in Beijing, it did occur. It was approximately 4,000 years ago when a massive earthquake caused boulders to form a dam across the Jushi Gorge, and this new dam blocked the way into the Yellow River. Qinglong Wu, who led the investigation, said the dam was about half a mile wide and 660 feet tall, as big as the Hoover Dam.

Unfortunately, nine months later the enormous dam broke, and the water went downstream, devouring the Yellow River Valley. It was so high, it reached the hills and everything in its way, no settlement was saved from the water’s ferocity.

Scientists believe that the outburst flood contained around 3.8 cubic miles of water and might have reached more than 1250 miles downstream. It is also considered that it is likely to be the largest flood since the Iced Age and that it probably lasted 22 years.

“To put that into perspective, it’s among the largest known floods to have happened on Earth during the past 10,000 years,” said geologist Darryl Granger, one of the co-authors of the study, “It’s more than 500 times larger than a flood we might expect on the Yellow River from a massive rainfall event”, he added.

According to the myth, years after the flood occurred a hero entered and spent decades organizing campaigns to build digs and channels for the floodwater, never setting foot in his house until he accomplished the mission. People was so thankful and amazed by this man – who would later be called Yu the Great – that it is believed he became the emperor of China’s mythical first dynasty, the Xia.

To make these conclusions, the scientific team looked for sediments in the Yellow River Valley, and some appeared to be originally from the Jishi Gorge. As well, researchers examined the archeological site of Lajia -known as China’s Pompeii- hoping to find a connection between the outburst flood and the abandonment of Lajia. The scientist found, using radiocarbon dating, skeletons from 3900 years ago, an important fact to the Great Flood investigation.

Additionally, the research also gave information of the emergence of the Erlitou culture. Scientists expect they can soon show a real connection between the flood, the Xia, and the Erlitou sites. This investigation has amazed and impressed the scientific community, but beyond the newly revealed facts about the Great Flood, this could be the beginning of more studies aiming to solve the now-unknown mysteries.

I have no idea exactly how old the earth is.  What I do know is that Jesus, our Savior, said very clearly that there was a man named Noah and there was a massive flood.

Matthew 24
37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

Satan wants the world to believe HIS LIES.  He wants folks to believe that the universe created itself, that rocks created life, and that once basic life was created by rocks that it EVOLVED into a human being...even though the human body and brain is one million times more complex than a Boeing 747 jet!

Satan knows that once you believe that can be led to believe anything!  And once you deny that God/Jesus is the creative power of the universe and mankind, your mind gets turned upside down and all of your thinking becomes foolish.

Romans 1
19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

YEP!  NO EXCUSE!  If you can't see the Creator by looking at his CREATION you have NO EXCUSE!

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools.

Yep!  Fools who believe they descended from rocks and pond slime...who believe they can believe and do anything they want...because the rocks and pond slime will never hold them accountable for anything.
