Imagining the Pre-Flood World, Part 1

by Ark Encounter on June 24, 2014

One of the projects that we will be tackling for the Ark Encounter is figuring out some of the specifics of what the pre-Flood world may have been like. We know that evil abounded (Genesis 6:5, 11–12), but how was that wickedness manifested in everyday life? Below are some of the many questions we have considered as we develop some of the background details for the Ark Encounter.

What Did the People Believe?

What Were the People Like?

Pre-Flood Dress

How did people dress prior to the Flood? One of our talented artists created these concepts based on research of ancient cultures.

There are many other things that we have to consider, some of which we will post in the next blog post. In the meantime, do you have your own ideas or questions about pre-Flood civilization? Leave them as comments on our Facebook fan page.
