There is an interesting book called "The Genesis Flood"
written by Henry M Morris and John C Whitcomb, Jr.
Based on the flood documented in the Biblical book of Genesis
it suggests that a world wide flood in the days of Noah better
answers the theories of the scientific community than the idea of
Uniformitarianism demands that the past is
the key to the present. This is the theory that changes in the
earth's crust during geological history have resulted from the
action of continuous and uniform processes.
One of the most important Biblical arguments for a universal flood is the statement of
19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth, and all the high hills under the whole heaven were covered.
20 The waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered.
