I have heard it said the flood of Noah's day may not have been a global flood.

The following link is really worth reading:

I myself have some problems with this. If indeed the entire earth was wiped out but only Noah and his family were in the ark, then that would mean any re-population after would have been by incest and we all know how wrong that is. Yet in the old testament incest seems to have been ok.

Interesting reply Spice.

I must admit that I may not understand the Bible fully but I have faith that it is the word from God given to the writers to send to us, the Christian, the information we need to live by.

A thought for you from me would be this:

At the time the flood took place only Noah, his wife, his three sons and their wives were saved. The Bible does not mention any children of the three sons being on the Ark. So, it is of my understanding, Noah's grandchildren were produced after the flood was done. If I am wrong, hopefully someone can point that out for me and send me to where I need to go to study.

It stands to reason to repopulate the earth there must have blood kin having children together. Perhaps, as with Sarah at the age of 90, the women lived a long time and could produce children in old age. We would have to assume that Noah produced offspring with his daughters-in-law? (a question because I am asking also)

I will do a search on this for it is a topic that needs to be discussed.

One of my friends on facebook has posted the following link:

I am in the process of exploring it.

I took a glimpse at it myself. Noah had sons true enough. But in order to repopulate there would have to be a woman(women) involved. So if indeed the flood did not wipe out the whole earth, that would stand to reason why they were able to do this.

The years are kind of fuzzy in the records of those times, and as the men were usually with younger women, they could have copulated with fifth and sixth cousins and such, making the bloodline imperceptable.
