I’ve been looking for reasons to trust the bible. My atheist friends think that the Bible has no credibility and I was looking for reasons to trust it to build my own faith. A big reason they do not trust is is because of the story of Noah’s flood. They say it is a lot like the flood in the epic of Gilgamesh which was a flood story told many years before genesis. They also say there is no evidence of a world wide flood and that there is even evidence against it. It is said that there have been trees found that were at least 9000 years old. Bibical cronology would show you that the flood only happened 4000-5000 years ago.
If you can give any other strong reasons to believe in the bible, please help me out.
Thankyou! God bless
