Why is that? Why would a catastrophic flood myth occur around the globe if it didn't happen around the globe?
It's the question you seem to be avoiding.
Your myth links are not about a catastrophic event or a global flood, don't know why you give them.

So what the hell are you saying here? The scablands were created by a catastrophic flood? Man was witness to the formation of the scablands and so a myth was born? Floods that create scablands are common?

In other words, they were idle simpletons incapable of critical thinking who just made up stories. Yes you are saying they were not intelligent. Your answer does not answer why similar myths appear around the globe. Your answer is the simplest wave of the hand devoid of critical thinking or even basic curiosity.
> Floods happen everywhere.
No doy. A common occurrence. So what would be the basis for a catastrophic flood?
Your point is?
> Myths contain crazy ideas, don't they.
Typical response from mainstream shadows when no explanation suits the theory of evolution. Just brush it aside. Brilliant Harte, wish I'd made that empty meaningless statement.

Well that would have to be one hell of an earthquake. What do you suppose would cause such a catastrophic earthquake?

Another typical mainstream ignore the evidence response. You're so good at it.
Sounds like you haven't thought this through. Obviously you have no thoughts on how long it would take a myth to spread around the globe. Or why cultures on each continent would conceive of a similar story. Let alone what the source of the volume of water would be and the geological scars left by it. Since you only skim the surface without contemplating cause and effect, how can you possibly have an informed opinion on the subject? So far your opinion is shallow, uninformed for the purpose of self "entertainment"
