So, Jehovah's Witnesses and many other biblical literalists think that the "Whole World" was flooded during Noahs day.
They take the "accounts" in Genesis literally. So that means that areas as far away as Australia, Russia, Argentina, Greenland, Antarctica were all visited by Noah and his family to gather animals and preach before it happened right?? They then took everything back to the middle east to board the ark...Uh huh...
Yet, the same expression in the bible for the "whole world" is also used in the account about the "worldwide famine" in Josephs day! Apparently people came from "the WHOLE world to get grain during the 7 year famine! So Does that mean that the Australian Aboriginals, the American Indians, the Arctic Eskimos and African desert dwellers all travelled to ask the Egyptians for food??
So does that give a different perspective on the Genesis expression of "The Whole World"?
What about the expression in the Gospels too then that say "The good news was preached in the "Entire Earth"?
