Articles related to the Biblical flood

A pretty unscientific claim by a guy in this article:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/foss...c67220724c?

with a link in it to a fairly scientific article about a flood in the Middle East by a reputable researcher here:

Subject: I have a black cat.
Believer: Black cats are bad luck.
Non-believer: It's just a cat.
Crackpot: Black cats are part of the New World Order government conspiracy.
Skeptic: I can test if black cats are more or less lucky than another cat.
Cynic: You only have a black cat to gain power and prestige.

They have been many floods in the middle east in history.

This would explain why Egyptian Polytheism, Jewish Polytheism, Zoroastrianism, and Judaism all developed a story about a large flood.

However this still does not indicate that a flood covered the entire Earth at any point.

That is true and if a person had a literal view of Old Testament scripture the article would not be very satisfying. However, if you consider that people in the Middle East around 4000 years ago had no idea of the actual size of the Earth and probably thought the Earth was flat anyway, this might be considered plausible.

Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.

LOL, not me! My view of pre-history is a little more scientific. Same as guy mentioned above, I think.
