Again, totally agree. While I can accept "antediluvian" to represent one or more extinction level conditions that spared the few individuals who managed to survive underground, etc., I really don't consider it to be a conventional "flood" in terms of water inundation, e.g., due to rain that literally fell for 40 days and nights. The original Hebrew translation of Genesis actually goes beyond a mere water level and implies something far more profound and auspicious as do some other cultures' legendd of that same concept.

In my opinion, our traditional characterizations of the "ark" and "flood" are just more examples of Mother Goosing something we really don't understand.

How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
