Evidence the bible’s date of the flood is correct

The bible teaches us the flood in the days of Noah happened approximately 4400 years ago. Is there any evidence to support this date? Here are afew facts that I believe support this date.

  • In 1999 the worlds population passed the 6 billion mark. In 1800 there was approximately 1 billion. In the days of Jesus the world’s population was close to ¼ of a billion. It looks like the worlds population growth curve started around 4400 years ago.

  • The earliest civilizations are generally recognized for having started in whats known the fertile crescent. These been Egypt, Babylon and Assyria. These date back to approximately 4000-4500 years ago.  The land of Sumer is known as one of these earliest civilizations. The oldest written language found has been Sumerian.
  • The Sahara Desert has been studied carefully. It has been dated at 4000 years old based on its growth rate.

  • When it rains, 30% of the water runs back into our oceans carrying mineral salts. Today our oceans are 3.6% salt, this could have been reached within 5000 years.
  • Oil is under incredible pressure below earth. The weight of rocks is not sufficient to keep the oil under ground for more than 10,000 years. All coal seams and oil deposits were created by the animals and plants that were buried during this flood. At least the flood must have accord within the last 10,000 years.

  • The oldest trees on the planet ring date to a maximum of 4300 years old. Some include the bristle cone pine.

  • The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef system in the world. Growth studies show the reef is less that 4200 years old.

These factors are scientific predictions that validates the biblical date of the flood in the days of Noah. There simply is no scientific reason to reject this finding.
