Flood and Rainbow
12 Oct 09
The flood that was told in the bible was of greater event. It destroyed all living things in the world except for those that was in the ark. In other words, it was something that affected not a certain area but the whole of earth. What we experienced today are concentrated in different parts of the world.

I believe that the volume of water in the earth has never changed since pre-historic times. And tidal waves do happen due to some movements in earth's plates. That being said, the effect before is not that devastating as what we see nowadays. I hope you are not implying that the floodings we see now are acts of God. They are mostly man-made caused by unabated deforestation and clogging of waterways due to blatant disregard for the environment and uncontrolled waste disposal. I don't see God punishing people with floods, mankind, on the other hand is punishing themselves due to their own negligence and lack of concern for the earth that God has made. It will continue to rain, since that's included in the divine design, but man has destroyed the forests that hold and contain the water. Rain was not designed to flood people's houses and communities, we have brought this to ourselves. God is still true to His promises that He will never again destroy mankind with water. Have a nice day!

it's ridiculous to blame God when calamities hit the world. In the Old testament God made a covenant after the flood where Noah and his family were only saved. God promised through his covenant that people will never be destroyed again through flood. So it is clearly to say that What happening in our environment now is not from God but from people themselves. The flood and typhoon and aggressive climate change partly attributed to human activities that's why Global warming is worsening. So when there are people who perished through flood that's because people themselves created such cause of the disaster. So what we are going to do now is be a good steward to the mother earth, if we are just so responsible with the mineral resources God created then we wont suffer such circumstances. We should not blamed God because HE did his best to give us everything we wanted but then we kept on destroying it, too bad, most of the victims of flood and other calamities are those living poverty line who are also to be considered as victim of too much industrialization. Why cannot just balanced our so called "improvements" in the environment.
