    Mesopotamia is the site of the flood. The only reason to
    posit a flood 5M years ago is to try to "match it up" with a
    fossil. And then you have to swallow tons and tons of historical,
    archaeological, and Biblical evidence that refutes your position.
    In other words, you will be in error.

    There will always be those who won't accept Biblical inerrancy in the
    originals. It is a tough issue to grapple with. Archaeological
    evidence comes to light which shows a Bible "error" to be fact.
    There are occasional scribal errors.

    For starters, the "mountains" of "rrt" are not in Turkey. See
    Bailey's book. Ararat extends close to southern Mesopotamia.
    A mountain range connected to this extends all the way down past
    Southern Mesopotamia.
