Hard to say that Genesis flood myth is true in a literal sense when virtually no other culture shares the same story. True, floods occur all the time in history. That doesn't mean they were the same one.
    Well, when you look at languages (especially ancient ones), very, very, very few of them have anything in common other than the fact that they're utterances from the throat. Pronunciation, grammar, spelling, alphabets differ extremely. My point? Different peoples have different takes on things, especially when large distances in geography and a time-line separate them. Not to mention, things get lost or changed in Oral tradition, we know this from the game Telephone, and things get lost in translation in almost every language to the next. Not to say this proves it was real, just that we all have very similar information, we just interpret it differently, especially regarding early history.

    I didn't know if I should apologize for making you spew all over your keyboard.

    And do you like your DP with a nice Chianti?

    http://www.chianti.com/

    "In 1995 it became legal to produce a Chianti with 100% Sangiovese. For a wine to retain the name of Chianti, it must be produced with at least 80% Sangiovese grapes.[2] A Chianti may have a picture of a black rooster (known in Italian as a gallo nero) on the neck of the bottle, which indicates that the producer of the wine is a member of the "Gallo Nero" Consortium; an association of producers of the Classico sub-area sharing marketing costs.[3] Since 2005 the black rooster has been the emblem of the Chianti Classico producers association.[4] Aged Chianti (38 months instead of 4-7), may be labeled as Riserva. Chianti that meets more stringent requirements (lower yield, higher alcohol content and dry extract) may be labeled as Chianti Superiore. Chianti from the "Classico" sub-area is not allowed in any case to be labeled as "Superiore"."

    Yes I do..

    That's not exactly a great argument for why dissimilar floods are really the same one.

    And especially when flood stories around the world aren't global in aspect, don't kill many people and recede relatively quickly. It takes a great many telephone games to turn a global, mass killer into a river flood that kills few.

    Not to mention the sheer lack of any empirical evidence for such a global flood. The belief in a global flood requires a believer to reject principles of water they can test in their own sink. That alone is enough to reject it as history.

    I wasn't going one way or another, just saying it's a possibility.

    Who knows. Just saying, **** gets lost in translation and flood evidence goes away. And when you don't know there's a whole world out there when it does flood, all that you see getting flooded is your land.
