There are often discussions about the Great Flood of the bible and generally science folk claim that there is absolutely no evidence for such a flood.
However I've just finished reading 'Noahs Flood' by William Ryan & Walter Pitman. They are marine biologists who have uncovered evidence for a wide spread flood in the middle east. Now while they do not cite this as proof of noahs flood, nor attempt to. In fact they do the opposite because they conclude that it was this localized flooding which led to the flood 'myths', they do show that around 5600 years ago the Black Sea was inundated with sea water from the mediterranean. They provided evidence of a sudden dispersal of the inhabitants and a relatively short length of 3 centuries of inactivity then a sudden repopulation on previously inhabited sites by a more advanced people.
Their hypothesis has been critisised in that some say that the water flow through the Bosporus repeatedly reversed direction over time depending on the water levels of the Aegean Sea and Black Seas.
This apparently contradicts their assertion that the water broke thru the Bosporus.
Im interested if anyone else has read it and what they think of the evidence that these researchers found regarding the sudden disapearance of populations and the repopulation by new settlers with more advanced technologies.
