Looking thoroughly at evidential proof of a worldwide flood, there are multiple biblical accounts, written accounts, and scientific statements that many scholars believe the claims of the catastrophic event [the worldwide flood] actually happened. Is there really evidence that proves the world wide flood actually happened that is written about in the book of Genesis? The Bible gives testimony of the Great Flood and how it covered the whole earth: “Now the flood was on the earth forty days. The waters increased and lifted up the ark, and it was raised high above the earth” (Gen 17:7 [NKJV]).Many Christians and scholars have questioned the Word of God; however, investigating to get answers will be the conclusion, if the Great Flood actually happened …show more content…

First, evidence that takes away from evolution is that: evolutionists would have to believe that the Colorado River flowed up hill; the Colorado River is more than 4,000 below the elevation where the Colorado River meets the Grand Canyon. When you look at this through a creationist viewpoint, a massive amount of water came crashing into the land to forge valleys, the water washed sediment down and left layers of evidence. The layers of evidence have left fossil grave yards high and low in the Grand Canyon. Moreover, millions of natiuloids are buried in the limestone layer of the Grand Canyon.
