    Apparently by making fortified cities. Civilization...

    The Flood, if it existed, I'm guessing happened around 4,000 BCE, because that's when grapes were first cultivated in the region.

    A Biblical story involving Canaan seems to refer to the ancient discovery of the cultivation of grapes around 4000 BC around the area of Ararat, which is associated with Noah.[25] After the Flood, Noah planted a vineyard, made wine but became drunk. While intoxicated, an incident occurred involving him and his youngest son, Ham

    ...

    However, for the past 6,000 years (many centuries before the first known written records), the world's sea level has been gradually approaching the level we see today.

    Or, maybe they mean this flood 12,000 BCE, which covered over what could be the Garden of Eden, creating the Persian Gulf:

    2370 BCE.

    (Noah).
    1. [Heb., Noach, probably, Rest; Consolation]. Son of Lamech and tenth in line from Adam through Seth; born in 2970 B.C.E., 126 years after Adam’s death. When his father Lamech named Noah, he said: “This one will bring us comfort from our work and from the pain of our hands resulting from the ground which Jehovah has cursed.”—Ge 5:28-31.


    Noah and his family entered the ark in the 600th year of Noah’s life, the 2nd month (October-November), the 17th day. (Ge 7:11) One year later (a year consisting of 360 days) was the 17th day, 2nd month, 601st year. Ten days after that would be the 27th day of the 2nd month, when they came out; a total of 370 days, or parts of 371 separate days, spent in the ark. (Ge 8:13, 14) In the log that Noah kept, it appears he used months of 30 days each, 12 of them equaling 360 days. In this way he avoided all the complicated fractions involved had he used strictly lunar months consisting of slightly more than 29 days. That such calculations were used in the account is evident from the fact that a five-month period consisted of 150 days.—Ge 7:11, 24; 8:3, 4.

    The calendars are off so I don't think you can ever find the exact date. I read or heard somewhere that the land of Sinar was (is China). The oldest calendars are all about 5000+ years old. The earth is probably older than that no doubt.

    Do you think the Earth is 6000 years old?
