What do you think about Noah’s flood? Is it a myth, or did it really happen? If it was an actual event, is there any evidence that can help us understand Noah’s flood in the context of the history of mankind? What can hard facts—such as the stratigraphy of the earth’s geological and anthropological records—tell us about what Noah’s flood could and could not have been?
These are all fascinating questions that have been carefully vetted by engineers, scientists, and scholars at Reasons To Believe, the science-faith think tank whose “mission is to spread the Christian Gospel by demonstrating that sound reason and scientific research—including the very latest discoveries—consistently support, rather than erode, confidence in the truth of the Bible and faith in the personal, transcendent God revealed in both Scripture and nature.”
These people are smart. Very smart. And they’ve got soul—and class.
The primary goal of our blog is to share resources that corroborate the Bible. The Reasons To Believe website is a treasure trove on the information superhighway. They have thus far written 1,564 articles since their founding by Dr. Hugh Ross in 1986. Their website has video and audio materials that prove their mission. Pop into their search box and you’ll find amazing resources.
Their position on Noah’s flood (they call it the “RTB Flood Model”) is controversial—because it flies in the face of what a lot of people have traditionally believed about the events recorded in Genesis 6-9.

Start reading, and by all means form your own opinion.
For those who might be encouraged to dig a little deeper, the classes offered by Reasons Institute contain additional videos that they do not release to the general public (you need to sign up for the courses). These course videos are as powerful as what you are able to download or purchase from their site. I watched one yesterday by a geologist, who specializes in the earth’s stratigraphy, that was absolutely amazing in relating the geological record to Noah’s flood.
