1. Context?

Sounds like you're watching something that not everyone here is.

4. To extrapolate. There is a belief that the black sea flood happened during pre-history, but


that humans lived in the area and are the basis for Noah and the great flood.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Sea_deluge_hypothesis

I believe that there is also evidence for archaeological structures lying beneath the surface of the black sea which could give credence to the whole hypothesis.

Congressman Cummings was not in, but they took my message thanking him for supporting more gun regulations!!

Have you thought about the Children?

6. We have had some flooding here in Maryland, but nothing like what happened north of here in NJ,

though we do have bible thumpers in central Maryland who are KKK/NRA members. I think one of them named their child Adolf Hitler Campbell. Fortunately they took the child out of that horrible situation.

7. We had a flood in the basement once when the pipes froze.

FYI... don't flush the toilet when that happens.

8. Just turned the channel.

She is usually someone whose reporting I admire but the subject matter is stretching credulity this evening, for me. DH was enjoying it but when he left I saw no reason to continue listening to it.

9. I saw the promo for that. Very disappointing.

It looks like it will only encourage the idiots who mistake mythology with history.

11. science has proved it, almost

The area did flood about 5000bc. (and several times before) The bible tells the tale, approximately. It wasn't a worldwide flood, just a flood covering their known world.

16. List of flood myths

Many cultures have flood myths similar to the Noah flood.

13. I watched some of it.

The part about the flood was pretty interesting, IMO. But then I got bored and changed the channel. LOL

14. Many cultures have great flood stories, even many with no known connections

I think there may be something to it in human history, in a substantial way. Probably not a literal global flood but it wouldn't take such a thing to make people of ancient times believe it.

Who knows. Mythology is fun and probably chock full of little kernels of truth.
