Okay did I say anything wrong? Our knowledge of DNA is limited to our understanding which is constantly changing. Is that better? We do not understand everything 100% and DNA is one of these things.

How does DNA disprove all mankind came from Noah and his kid's families after the historically, scientifically and archeologically proved world-wide flood in which only eight survived?

Gen 6:11 and Exodus 9:33 both use the Hebrew word erets which can also mean land.

-----------------------

YLTGen 7
20 fifteen cubits upwards have the waters become mighty, and the mountains are covered;


The water was just 15 cubits deep.
Not 7 cubits above the 'mountains'.
It just covered the 'mountains'.

Mountains can also mean the high ground in that region.
Flooding evry mountain on earth requires 3.5 more water+ice+vapour than present on earth.

Just a thought

On the contrary. mDNA that passes down via the woman is quite stable. It can be used as "clock" and determine genetic difference.
The story goes that mDNA points to one mother.
The Mitochondrial Eve.

The 'clock' is little more disputed. The mDNA clock originally pointed to a hundred of thousand year old mother. Gradually that number became lower. Even into the 6000-10000 year old region.

i think more of the question would be HOW could they???
i mean think about it,noahs kids would have only been dedicated to the Abrahamic God Yeshua-why and how would they have gone off and started other religious cultures,lets take India for instance,India can recognise 33 million demigods,some dating back as far as 10 000 years,and thats just as far as the history of it and each one worshiping in different ways(thats not including The eternal forms and avatars of Vishnu)why would they have started all those religious cultures,?????

and the other question was to do with Race,how could 8 people of the same race start all the other races in the world,chinese,japanese,african,native american,Indian,eskimos etc etc.???

i think its an honest question,maybe there was a flood yeah,but whether it engulfed the whole world is questionable.
Doesn't Gen 6:19 says that EVERY living thing of ALL flesh you shall bring two of EVERY sort into the ark...they shall be male and female.

It doesn't exclude other peoples as we immediately assume by our mere simple understanding

Then Gen 7:2 Of EVERY CLEAN beast ...take you SEVEN PAIRS, the male and his mate and beasts that are NOT CLEAN a PAIR of each kind; male and his mate

NOTE:In the book of Jashar these creatures had to bow down in order for Noah to accept them into the ark as commanded by God. And from those three sons Ham families were about 730 men, Shem family 300 men and Japheth family 460 men. we forget that during that time people lived for centuries seein their great, great, great, great grand children. It hard for us to fathom this concept even when we read it with our own eyes and because we don't see it in our own lives.

In the book of Enoch, Noah is albino (no pigmentation at all) and comes out of his mother's womb speaking the word of God and his three sons appears to be of different colors yellow, red and black if I recall correctly, which would account for all the races on earth.

All of this together fills alot of gaps in our bible
