The years science uses are faith based only. They are based on assuming nature was always the same..hence, radioactive decay and etc etc. I am talking real time. My current guess as to when the flood was, is somewhere near the time the KT layer was laid down. In imaginary so called science religious dream years, that was something like almost 70 million years ago. In real time, Noah lived at the same time as Abraham, they were contemporary, so it wasn't all that long ago!Wrong. 5000 years or less, isn’t in the far past, not even for Earth.
