Some people – Christians included – mock the story of Noah and the great flood as being fictional. One alleged Christian accused me of worshiping a demon because I quoted from the Noah story and took it at face value.
Yet nearly every ancient culture includes an account of a major flood. The details vary, as you would expect, but does that mean there wasn’t a major flood?
If you ask about the New Orleans flood of 2005 in 100 years (or even now) you’ll get different accounts. But there is no disputing that there was an actual flood.
Also, there is a lot of archeological evidence for a major flood.

Most importantly, consider that Jesus believed Noah existed and that the flood really happened:
Matthew 24:37-39 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.
Some people think they know the location of the remains of the ark. This would be an interesting find, of course, but not required to believe and understand this passage.
