You know, I'm trying to wrap my brain around it. So if you are a young earther, and you follow a timeline like this one: http://www.agapebiblestudy.com/charts/Generations%20Adam-Moses.htm
then EVERYONE, including the mean Pharaohs of Egypt, and the frisky Soddomites, were the descendants of Noah.
So whatever was going on before the flood must have been really really really bad, in comparison to enslaving the chosen subset of the surviving population. I mean, God decided to kill off EVERYONE in the flood because they were being so naughty, but enslaving His favorite humans wasn't as bad as what was going on in Noah's time? Even the whole Sodom and Gomorrah debacle came afterwards.
It doesn't seem to me that the flood was a very effective method of turning around humanity. But surely I'm missing something.
So then, a small percentage of humanity remembers the whole Adam and Eve and Noah story, and then God sends Moses to provide a bunch of rules to the subset of humanity that remembers their history.
In the mean time, a bunch of humans who have forgotten the whole history of their own ancestry, and who have forgotten the stuff that pisses God off most, manage to repopulate the whole, huge planet, moving all the way down to the southern tip of Africa, moving far far east, and inhabiting Korea and Japan. Braving the cold, and moving northwest into places like the British Isles.
And some of them, LOTS of them, actually, somehow managed to cross the ocean (without the benefit of the Bering Strait providing a footbridge, because the earth is only 6000 years old, and all of that geological stuff that supposedly happened tens of thousands of years ago is part of the scientific conspiracy to make us hate God) thousands of years before the really faithful folks figured out how to cross the ocean.
And young earthers care to clarify any of this for me? Surely I'm missing something here.
