The current scientific theories indicate it was not a global flood but covered nearly all of what is now the middle east, pretty much the known world at the time. I can probably dig up[ some links if you are interested.

They didn't even realize any of this until they started studying the region from satellites.

there are lots of folks out there who hate it when science actually agrees with the bible in some way.
The main physical evidence for a major flood in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea is quite large. But all it supports is a possible source of the totally fantasy based myth in the bible. Science does not support the idea or "fact" that:

God did it.
It was a world wide flood.
It rained for 40 days and nights.
The water covered the highest mountains.
Noah built an ark.
Noah carried 2 of each animal on board.
Etc., etc., etc.

So, in short, science has not supported any of the tall tales found in the bible concerning the "Flood". So I corrected your closing statement for you.

"there are lots of folks out there who hate it when science actually dis-agrees with the bible in some way."
