Myth making from the Bible
One of the ways in which evolutionists have managed to convince so
many people to blindly accept the religion of evolutionism is to repeat
the same lies, distortions and half-truths again and again. As
Christians we must be careful to make sure that the things we say are
Following are three commonly repeated stories that are not based on the actual words in the Bible.
There was no rain before the Flood. We donít know that. What the Bible states is that there was no rain during Creation Week, but that the earth was watered by a mist. From Creation Week to the Flood there is no mention of rain. The use of the rainbow as a reminder of Godís promise not to flood the earth again is not proof of it not having rained, because God often used everyday items to convey spiritual meanings. Two examples being the bread and wine of the Lordís Supper.
Noah and his sons built the Ark. We actually donít know who built the Ark. While Noah and his sons were undoubtedly involved in its construction, Noah could have subcontracted out some of the work to others. It is clear from the story of Noah that he was a wealthy man. He had to have been in order to get all of the things that he would have needed. Even though the people before the Flood didnít believe what Noah said, that doesnít mean that they wouldnít have taken his money to help him build the Ark.
Noah cursed Ham and that curse caused Hamís skin to turn black. Someone who had heard this story from others asked me about it recently. The story is in the ninth chapter of Genesis and tells of Ham mocking his father, Noah and of Noahís reaction to that mocking. Noah said,

Noahís statements are regarding Canaan, not Ham, and it dealt with
Canaan, his character and his descendantís occupations, not their skin
color. This story about Noah, Ham and Canaan has been used for
centuries as a justification for racism by those who seek to distort
the Bible to fit their desires, rather accepting Godís Word for what it
