Noah's flood was exaggerated in the bible
« on: December 20, 2012, 01:30:22 pm »
Some modern interpretations claim the Qur'an differs from the Bible in that it doesn't say that the entire world was submerged in water. According to these sources, only certain parts of the world were submerged under water, one of them being the region of Noah and his people. However, there is little in the Qur'an to support this point of view. Islam differentiates from Christianity on the account of the animals loaded in the ark. According to Islam, Noah's ark was a flat watercraft made of logs, tied together with primitive ropes, the flood was local, around the Dead Sea area, and the animals were Noah's domesticated animals.
