But if we want to chose Bibical "history" as a basis, then why if God considered all that he made as "good", did he later wipe out most of humanity with a flood? Evidently things weren't so "good".

I believe God also brought plague and pestilence down on the Egyptians, so he couldn't have thought that they were too good either.

If one is going to use the Bible, then one needs to take the works as a whole and not just the parts that might back the point one is trying to make.


Personally, Evolution makes a lot more sense.
"If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them more than the miracles of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it." Lyndon B. Johnson
