The Biblical Flood Really Happened
The Biblical flood was very real, but it wasn't global, it didn't begin 4500 years ago, and it lasted far more than a year, right up to the current day. Around 10,000 years ago the Mediterranean breached the barrier separating it from the Black Sea, which was then half its current size. Water poured into the Black Sea over an immense waterfall for a century, eventually filling the Black Sea to current levels. The displaced civilizations scattered, some to the Levant where memories of the ancient flood became legends and myths that were one day recorded in the Bible.

Re: The Biblical Flood Really Happened
Hi Astrophile,
The idea isn't mine, you might want to read the Black Sea deluge hypothesis article at Wikipedia. There's evidence both pro and con.
I can pretend to argue the other side, but I can't pretend to give up an evidence-based approach. The Black Sea flood scenario is the best I can do to argue for the creationist side.
