Global Flood Known to Most Ancient People Groups But Only Lineage of Jesus Recorded Pre-Deluge Details


Over 600 tribes have ancestral recollection of the global flood, but only the Hebrews’ account of Noah’s Flood provides great detail, even naming the ten patriarchs and their lifespans sequentially from the Garden of Eden to the Flood, yet the Babylonians (by Berossus) recorded too that there were ten kings as does the Word. That a flood covered the entire earth must have seemed preposterous to those born after the Flood, however, they maintained that legend as fact, even though they weren’t aware of the plate tectonics for the Flood (as explained in the Page at right Natural Selection by Noah’s Flood).
