Some try to reconcile Noach's story with the fact that the Chinese (and other cultures like the Native Americans) existed beforehand and afterwards (with documented history) and didn't die by saying that the Mabul only happened in Mesopotamia. Then how come the Torah speaks of it as the destruction of the world (end of ALL living)?

    Izzy, welcome to Mi Yodeya, and thanks for the interesting questions! But the first was a duplicate of an already-asked-and-answered question: lucky you, you get ready-made answers! So I've edited it out of this post. And the last (about the water) seems like a completely separate point, so I've removed it; feel free to ask it separately. I hope you stick around and enjoy the site, including our 27 other questions about Noah's flood. You may wish to register your account for more site features. – msh210 Nov 11 '14 at 17:10
