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.
