/* Evidence */ unless there is something in a particular flood account that directly relates to geology, I think it should be removed from this article and kept on the Great Flood article
== Evidence ==
Flood geologists base their belief in a relatively recent global deluge on several strands of evidence. While none of these strands alone is sufficient to ''prove'' that a global flood occurred, flood geologists argue that a global deluge is the most reasonable and [[parsimonious]] explanation for the evidence.
=== Ancient flood accounts ===
All ancient cultures have stories about a global flood which destroyed the entire Earth. A large number of them tell of a man who survived the flood by building a boat, or some other mechanism of surviving. Flood geologists interpret these accounts as being cultural memories of a historical event, which have been corrupted over time. <ref></ref> They consider a historical flood to be the only reasonable explanation for the prevalence and similarly of the story.
=== Sedimentary rock ===
