Denial I'm sure. It's obviously true, Brian, the fossils themselves prove the Flood. Denial is the only way to explain why it isn't recognized, and that has to be because 150-200 years ago somebody decided that there was no flood and that things have been the same forever, and nobody is willing or able to question this received wisdom except us creationists.
But, Faith, it is some conspiracy theory! EVERY science department doesn't take the flood seriously there must be some evidence against it. Scientists cannot just say something is untrue, they need to produce evidence to support their theories, or else they'd be picked apart by other scientists.
That's the myth. They've shown nothing of the kind. They just decided long ago that it's a myth because they liked the idea of assuming that the fossils evolved from each other up that stack of disparate sediments that they laughably labeled eras in time.
I didn't mention science here because i'm not a scientist, but archaeology and history has shown the flood to be a myth. many cultures hav an unbroken history that goes right through the date of the flood. Take the Egyptians as an example, they have a continuous history right through the flood period and their structures (e.g. great pyramid) has no water erosion.
Anyway, why would scientists want to deny the flood if it is so obvious? We do have Christian and Jewish scientists don't we?
Do you know if Woodmorappe took into consideration that there were 7 of all the clean animals and it was only the unclean that had 2 of each kind?
Genesis 7:2 Take with you seven of every kind of clean animal, a male and its mate, and two of every kind of unclean animal, a male and its mate
More problematic is the fact that a literal translation of Genesis 7:2 actually states that Noah took 14 of each clean animal on to the Ark.
of all the clean beasts thou dost take to thee seven pairs, a male and its female; and of the beasts which are not clean two, a male and its female (Young's Literal Translation)
The English Standard Version also has seven pairs, as does The Message, The Amplified Bible, The New Living Translation, The Contemporary English Version, The Holman Christian Standard Bible, and the Revised Standard Version.
I wonder if the author has considered the larger amount of animals given in these Bibles?
