What would you have God say, that He has not already said to convince you
that the flood was universal, given that the record was written by Moses
3000 years ago? If you are going to take this position, Glenn, you should
at least acknowledge that you are doing so in the face of the most open
reading of the account. While one can develop constructs of logic to allow
most anything with the account, in its pure and unstrained reading, it says
the flood was universal.
