Atheists all over the world are eating their words after a discovery was made in China that corroborates a major biblical story.
WND reported that archaeologists in China just uncovered children’s bones and layers of sediment in the Yellow River Valley which suggests to them that an enormous flood washed through the area around 4,000 years ago. According to Conservative Tribune, experts used radiocarbon dating and soil samples to determine the time period of the flood.
This puts the date of the flood around 2,000 B.C., which is when Christians believe the biblical story in Genesis of Noah’s Ark and the Great Flood occurred. There is also a legend in Chinese history of an ancient flood that “deluged settlements, spilled over hills and mountains and even reached the heavens.”
Research of this finding was published in the Science journal, which stated that China was submerged under floodwaters at that particular point in time after an earthquake caused a landslide that in turn temporarily dammed a major waterway. When this dam gave way, it spilled some 4 trillion gallons of water across the country, which submerged virtually everything.
Cultures all over the world have stories of floods during this time period, appearing to corroborate the Noah’s Ark story even more.
“Whether it’s the American Indians or the Fijians, Hawaiians, the Eskimos, Australian Aborigines … back to the Babylonians, there are flood legends in cultures all over the world,” Creationist-advocate Ken Ham said in an interview with One News Now. “And this particular flood legend from China – when you read it – it talks about it was basically a global flood, the way it was described. And there was a man in particular associated with that flood.”
“There are thousands of feet of flood sediment all over the globe – evidence of a catastrophic global flood – and [most researchers are] not prepared to look at that because they’ve been indoctrinated to believe that that was laid down over millions of years,” Ham added.
