Flood confirmation

Regarding “Flood Pseudoscience?” (Letters & Comments, Aug. 1): Jesus himself confirmed Noah, the ark and the flood as historical fact (Matt. 24:38-41, Luke 17:26-27). Jesus also gave the mocking Pharisees the story of the rich man and Lazarus the beggar (Luke 16:19-31). In verse 31, Jesus evidently wanted them to know that to believe “Moses and the Prophets” was enough to keep them out of the place of torment (hell?). Certainly they knew that “Moses” included the history of Noah, the flood and the ark.
