I am wondering how many theistic evolutionists here believe in a literal world flood as described in Genesis 7? Especially given the fossil record that Christians believe is a direct result of the Flood, and evolutionists deny. This teaching of a world flood is anathema to virtually every evolutionist that I have ever heard or read. Last week on PBS there was a story on NOVA about an area in Washington state that a geologist had theorized to have been devastated by a flood. The old school of thought was that the area was formed by millions of years of geological change. When he presented this theory to his colleagues he was dismissed as a fool because this may have lent evidence towards a biblical flood. Well now it is believed that a flood did cause the change to the area, but of course they came us with a theory different than the biblical flood. They say it was a local flood caused by a large glacier melt. My point of course is that scientists will bend over backwards in order to discredit any chance for there being a world flood. The reason being that they are lost and know it, so they must suppress in their minds the thought of there being a God of judgement. But what do you thesistic evolutionists here think; was there a literal world flood less than 10,000 years ago as described in Genesis 7?
