Global Flood: Evidence We Should Expect
Such a catastrophic event as a global flood should result in significant evidence that it happened. In addition to the geological evidence (we've already talked about that here, here, and here) we should see cultural evidence. People would pass on the story about the flood for generations. And we do see that type of evidence. For example, the creator God of the Bible, and the flood, were such a big part of the lives of the original Chinese people that they incorporated them into their written language.
Pictures are used for written Chinese. However, that does not mean each "word" is a unique character. Many of the characters are composed of other characters. The above video looks at the Chinese word for large boat (or ship). It is composed of three characters: the characters for boat, eight, and mouth (living, breathing people). That's Noah's ark! Noah's ark was large, and was a boat with just eight people on it. We see the global flood and Noah's ark captured in ancient Chinese characters, providing cultural proof the flood was real.
The second word we'll look at is the Chinese character for "garden" (or park). Here we see a picture of the Garden of Eden. It includes an enclosure, and inside that enclosure is dust, breath (life), and two people. So we see the creation of humanity in the Garden of Eden in this character.
The character for "mouth" has several shades of meaning. Here it refers to breath... God took dust and breathed life into it. This character can also represents a living person, as it does with the character for a ship (above). One mouth means one person. But there there is another symbol for a person, and that symbol is there twice, indicating two people... and one person is coming out of the side of the other. You can see this better in the contemporary character that has the same meaning. Draw a vertical line down the middle of this character and you can see you basically have the same character back-to-back.
More information on Chinese characters, that are related to the Bible, can be seen in some of the articles linked below.

GOD KNOWS YOU...
HE KNOWS EVERYTHING!
You cannot hide anything from God, and you can't hide from God:
'Can a man hide himself in hiding places So I do not see him?' declares the LORD 'Do I not fill the heavens and the earth?' declares the LORD. - Jeremiah 23:24
Imagine you have an SD card in your head that records every thought and dream. We record for a month and then rent a theater. All your friends are invited as we play that SD card on the big screen. How would you feel?
That's what God sees. He is disgusted and knows that because of your sin (those thoughts we all see on the big screen) you will never be with God. But God still loves you, and He made an incredible sacrifice for you. He died in your place.
You have a choice. Reject God... and get what you say you want... you'll spent eternity separated from God. And that means separated from EVERYTHING that is good. Think about that.
Or accept the gift God offers... trust that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the penalty you've earned (remember those thoughts on the SD card). Jesus paid your penalty in full. It is finished
There is no darkness or deep shadow Where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves. - Job 34:22
