Without Knowledge of the Story of Noah’s Flood Would Anyone Conceive of One Which Would Cover the Earth?

If there would be anyone in the world who hadn’t heard of the global flood, would he/she say that a flood to cover the whole earth is plausible? Certainly not, yet over six hundred ancient tribal legends bespeak the global flood, the least likely globally destructive mechanism one could imagine, behind asteroid strike, global fire, wind, or all of the above. For summary of the dynamics of the global flood see the Page at right Natural Selection by Noah’s Flood.
