Oh, sure, the flood probably happened, but it was constricted to a much, much smaller area than the Bible claimed. People just thought the world was smaller than it was. It's not that shocking to think that a large area sustained serious flooding completely naturally, and that there were scant few survivors, in a time period where the extent of the world was not known and most were deeply religious and didn't know that floods of that scale could, in fact, happen. But again, just because a country that thought it was all there was got flooded doesn't mean God had stepped in to do it.
