    If a world wide flood levelled everything some 4000-4500 years ago, how come the ancient
    citizens of tyre failed to notice this? Apparently they just went on with business as usual.
    You'd think they'd at least mention somewhere that, oh, and the entire city was drowned for
    so and so many months.

    Probably because the Deluge didn't happen 4-4500 years ago.

    Genesis doesn't.
    I'll go with the latter.

    Do you see the title of this thread? It's aimed at creationists. Yes, yes, I know, there are all
    kinds of creationists. I specifically, obviously, aimed the thread at young earth creationists.

    The article says it was founded at the start of the third millennium B.C. However, that is just an estimate. Everything was destroyed by the worldwide flood, so obviously it must have been found after the flood. The exact date of the flood is not known. However, it is estimated to have occurred about 4400 to 4500 years ago. So I suspect that one of these estimates is off, and I vote for Tyre being founded a little later.
