Does the Story Sink or Swim?


I recently heard an argument against the belief of a giant flood (Noah's) in the ancient past because of the fact that every civilization has a story of a giant flood in their past.

Wouldn't a catastrophic flood be more unlikely if the Jews were the ONLY people who had this story in their past?

no...everyone came from the sons of noah right, so it would make sense that there was a history before of these people...then a flood, then history of the other people begins

ah ok, i see the argument now. couldn't these people have all had ancestral roots that led back to Noah's sons?
