    I believe there was a great flood in the area of the world we now call Turkey about the time that people believe the Biblical flood took place. The name of the event eludes me at the moment, but it would seem that the flood myth's of the ancient world may have been based on this real event.

    The bible is a fictional book

    Truth be known, yes there were literal floods and they surely had some bearing on the story. But if local flood, why did God not say leave these lands like in the exodus? I think context points to a global flood in this allegory but I respect the endevours of the local flood thinking

    The flaming sword still exists and it revolves with astonishing speed somewhere in the middle east. Have faith.

    :like science fiction writers of today, bible contributors were clever.

    what great symbolism of an automatic , nearly invisible, invincible barrier. now:

    add the detail that a sword is also defined as a foil, airfoil, and the prospect of being blown away from, or sucked into the cucumber slicer, would make you keep your distance.

    A contemporary human, Cain, had to use a far blunter instrument.

    What is a sword if not a cutting instrument adapted for use as a weapon?

    The problem is not the terminology. The problem is the introduction of the concept of weapons to humans.

    I throw in the suggestion that the angels had merch that Moses would later identify as a sword. But since it is a symbolic account recorded by Moses, I dont think real time matters 😁. The sword symbolises the separation from God just like in Luke 16 and making necessary the ransom at-one-ment

    After wondering where they got the Iron Ore to make the steel and how he even knew what steel was made from, Adam's first thought after seeing the spinning sword was " of those thingies would sure make shaving and haircuts easier".

    Eve first thought was " I could slice a whole lot of apples if I had one of those".
