Hugh Ross of Reasons to Believe says that Noah’s Flood was just a regional flood in Mesopotamia, which actually was one of the floods which swamped much of the low land downstream from ice age icepacks when the Ice Age ended; just a regional flood (as he says), so why then would distant nations be named after Genesis 10 (post Flood) characters, just a few generations from Noah, such as Tarshish (Spain), Ophir (Indonesia), and Cush (northeast Africa), if they were merely the progeny of survivors, listed in Genesis 10, of a regional flood in lower Mesopotamia, when those other regions of the world were supposedly already populated with established tribes?
Ross and the other old earth creationists can’t rationalize their position because their flood in lower Mesopotamia has been dated to circa 3000 B.C. (it really was 1500 B.C.), so he’s saying that distant nations (presuming he believes Genesis 10) were founded by people who actually need have only retreated to higher ground from the local flood, to come back and rebuild their in lower Mesopotamia, along the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, the “cradle of civilization?” So it’s obviously ludicrous to the extreme for this to be espoused, the logic just is not there.
And those ancients, after Noah’s Flood, were navigating the globe during the Ice Age, which makes real the notion that the great megalithic structures of the ancient world sprang up, worldwide (some of them submerged since the end of the Ice Age), with many similarities of design, in the 2000 B.C. timeframe, within several centuries after the Flood, using the ancient mapping and surveying method explained in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com.
