Radio Expedition in The Black Sea

In part two of the latest Radio Expedition, NPR's Neal Conan reports that exploration work done on the Black Sea provides scientific evidence of an enormous pre-historic flood. Five hundred feet below the sea's current surface, scientists found rounded beach pebbles and mollusk shells that are about seven-thousand years old. Experts say this proves something caused the sea level to rise drastically and they believe this ancient flood is the foundation for the story of Noah. (8:25)
