When we talk of "The Story of Noah's Flood", were are talking about "reality", not about "science fiction", or about "fantasy" as is actually the case with "The Story of Evolution". I know that people like to tell their children about "The Story of Noah's Flood". Nevertheless, there are some problems with treating this historical flood as just some kind of light-hearted "Children's Story":
(1) The Flood of Noah's Day was the greatest disaster in the history of the world. This flood was a far greater disaster than the sinking of The Titanic, or any of the other disasters of the past. In fact, only eight people in the entire world lived through this tremendously tragic worldwide disaster. All of the other millions of people, (if not billions of people), living on the Earth in that day, drowned during this great flood. Therefore, in what way is this story of mass death a "Children's Story" to be so glibly told to young children?
(2) Noah was a righteous man. Nevertheless, the flood was a judgment sent by God upon a world that had become filled with wicked, violent unbelievers. These evil men and women committed so much violence and sin on the Earth that God was left with no other choice but to judge the Earth with a great flood.
(3) This is not a "story" like "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" or "The Three Little Pigs". No, this Flood actually happened, with an incredible amount of physical evidence which can still be seen throughout the world today, showing that it did indeed happen. This scientific evidence is also well documented. The huge weight of scientific evidence just cannot be simply ignored, as if this were just some kind of "Children's Story".
