never happened, but proof is the counterexample of just that. The story of Noah, like other stories in

the first 11 chapters of Genesis, are archetypal. Noah 's story tells us that human beings have an

inherent tendency towards violence both towards their fellow human beings and the creation itself.

Before the flood came, we lived in a century called The Ice Age. Originally our planet was made

Now we live on the earth made of a mixture of cratons and flood sediments. After the ancient Greek

words pan meaning “entire” and Gaia meaning “Mother Earth”, we now know Pangea could not have

paleomagnetism. Evidence indicates that the continents have moved around, broken apart, and crashed

together, but the basic pieces have remained fairly…
