Have you seen/read the book NOAH'S FLOOD by
Ryan & Pitman?
It postulates the flod was ~7600 years ago, it was local,
it happened in what is, today, the Black Sea, that there
were many survivors, and that most flood legends,
including that in the Bible, are derived from this.
The authors have valid credentials, their claims are
interesting and the evidence they cite fairly compeling (IMHO).
