Dr. Robert Ballard the world-renowned underwater archaeologist may have proof of Noah’s biblical flood. He and his team have been exploring the Black Sea for evidence that Noah’s Flood may have been based on real events. In an interview for the Science Recorder Dr. Ballard explains. “Where I live in Connecticut was ice a mile above my house, all the way back to the North Pole, about 15 million kilometers, that’s a big ice cube,” Dr. Ballard explained “But then it started to melt. We’re talking about the floods of our living history.” Dr. Ballard and his team found ancient shoreline 400 feet below the surface proving that an historic flood took place in the Black Sea around approximately 5,000 BC. This time coincides with the time frame that experts believe the biblical flood could have taken place. “We went in there to look for the flood,” the underwater archaeologist said. “Not just a slow moving, advancing rise of sea level, but a really big flood that then stayed. The land that went under stayed under. It probably was a bad day, at some magic moment, it broke through and flooded this place violently, and a lot of real estate, 150,000 square kilometers of land, went under.” Dr. Ballard does not think the actual shipwreck of Noah’s vessel will be found. “It’s foolish to think you will ever find a ship,” Mr. Ballard said. “But can you find people who were living? Can you find their villages that are underwater now? And the answer is yes.”
