The historical account of the Flood, as recorded in Genesis Chapters 6-9, tells us about a catastrophic event that destroyed the entire planet and completely altered its geologic features. The Flood came as a result of God’s divine judgment on a world that had turned to pure evil (Gen. 6:5). God commanded Noah, who was righteous, to build an ark to save his family and two of every kind of animal. All who were not on the ark perished in the Flood.
Evidence of the Flood is all around us. We can see the sedimentary rock layers that were laid down as a result of the waters churning and destroying the land. Within these rock layers are billions of fossils—the remains of animals and people that were judged during the Flood. We see other evidences like the Grand Canyon and other geologic structures. Not to mention the almost 300 flood legends that other cultures have. Peter prophesied in 2 Peter 3:5 that in the last days people who reject the fact that a flood had come and destroyed the earth. Today, that prophesy has been fulfilled. When scientists study geology or perform radiometric dating, they ignore the fact that there was a catastrophic flood and instead adhere to the idea of uniformitarianism, which was also prophesied (2 Pet. 3:4).
