All of the people in the world today are descendants of Noah and his sons. So it would make since that there are over 270 flood legends around the world today.[i] Elements of the Creation and the worldwide flood in the book of Genesis can be found in ancient Chinese symbols.
The symbol for boat is a combination of three symbols. They are: vessel + eight + people. So a boat is a vessel with eight people. Noah’s ark had eight people on it.
According to the book of Genesis, God made man out of the dust of the earth and breathed into him the breath of life. Before they sinned, Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden. The ancient Chinese symbol for garden is: dust + breath + two persons + enclosure.
It is interesting that these ancient Chinese symbols support what the book of Genesis says. This is just one more piece of evidence that shows us that the Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant word of the living God.
