Once upon a time, an angry crab caused a big flood. It destroyed everything except a brother and sister, who locked themselves—and two of every animal—in a big chest, until a rooster’s crow told them it was safe to come out.
Does this Chinese legend remind you of anything? Well, if you’ve read the account of the flood in Genesis, you’ll notice some similarities. A global flood, a few people, and two of every animal saved, and a bird letting them know it was safe. All of these are found in the true account of the flood.
These legends confirm that the Bible’s history is true. Yes, people groups from all over carry the memory of Noah’s global flood.
