Obviously, the Bible is a history and has been carried forward with many imperfections in translation, as I mentioned above, so every detail is not necesarily accurate in the currently used versions. But the story of a great flood is something that is shared by the oral histories of people generally across the world. So, even if the details may vary, it is obvious that something catastrophic occurred that cost great loss of life and a great flood. The question is when it happened. It appears from the geological record that it was about 12,000 years ago. I haven't made it to the library to get a quote about it from a book there, but last night I came across a Nova, Adventures in Science show, supposedly the most watched TV science show, called Warnings from the Ice. In it they said that the last ice age ended "approximately 11 or 12 thousand years ago, when temperatures rose so rapidly as to cause climatic changes during the course of just one lifetime that are nearly unimaginable." So, although some people seem to think that the last ice age ended uncharacteristically quickly (i.e. over a few thousand years instead of over many thousand years), it actually ended almost overnight from some great cataclysm.
