    There is an existing disagreement on the flood, global, universal or local.
    I believe it was global. I am open to a non global universal flood. But the problem would be what were it's boundaries if it was not global? There are no firm answers.
    There are Biblical datings for the flood.
    The oldest living tree sets a post flood date.

    I usually say that God does not work miracles. He makes it happen.

    Let there be light, and there was light.
    Produce the earth ... and the earth produced ...
    Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; ... and it was so.

    JESUS said: Luke 17:v.26-27-KJV
    26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
    27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the Ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

    Genesis 7:v. 11-13 and 19-20 and 24
    11 On the seventeenth day of the second month of the 600th year of Noach’s life all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of the sky were opened.
    12 It rained on the earth forty days and forty nights.
    13 On that same day Noach entered the ark with ... his family ...

    19 The water overpowered the earth mightily; all the high mountains under the entire sky were covered;
    20 the water covered the mountains by more than twenty-two-and-a-half feet.

    24 The water held power over the earth for 150 days.

    Again: God does not work miracles. He makes it happen.
    Let there be light, and there was light.
    Produce the earth ... and the earth produced ...
    Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and it was so.

    Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. Matt.19:v.26


    In accord biblical Chronology, through Genesis chapter 5 we can see that the flood occurred 1.618 years after Adam, as follow:

    Adam lived …............................................ 130 yrs and begat Seth
    Seth lived ………………………….......…….......105 yrs and begat Enosh;
    Enosh lived ...................................................90 yrs and begat Kenan;
    Kenan lived....................................................70 yrs and begat Mahalalel;
    Mahalalel lived ..............................................65 yrs and begat Jared;
    Jared lived ....................................................162 yrs and begat Enoch;
    Enoch lived .....................................................65 yrs and begat Methuselah
    Methuselah lived............................................187 yrs and begat Lamech;
    Lamech lived .................................................182 yrs and begat Noah;
    From Noah´s birth until the Flood..............600 yrs.
    Total of years from Adam to the Flood = 1.656 yrs.

    I work with the Word of God. Notice that the table above is proved by the Word of God, it is not human theories or human speculations. The Word is GOD, understand?
