THAT was their world.
I know faith is about beleiving in something without out fact - but what is it called when you ignore facts??
and are you seriously telling people that don't beleive heaven and hell are REAL physical places that they aren't real Christians?
(...and 'I' get called rude!?)
Oh and re the solar system -- no we don't know everything -- but we are exploring it and trying to learn about it.
Rather than just say it is there because someone put it there.

...when someone says, "My whole world fell apart!!"
Do you think the whole planet Earth literally fell apart??
What facts am I ignoring? I don't think being a Christian means you switch your brain off- so if there are facts that completely go against anything I or anyone else has said, please feel free to mention them.
Yes, I am saying that people who call themselves Christians but don't believe in heaven, hell, or any of the things I mentioned above are not real Christians at all. How are they Christians if they don't believe in any of those things? apart from the fact that they like to send their kids to a Catholic school and use the name? That won't mean anything on Judgement Day!
In regards to what you're saying, their world being within their region not the whole world. The bible says the whole world. Do we know what lived in other parts of the world at the time of Noah? Do we know what the population was and where it was concentrated? Do we know for sure whether the great flood killed absolutely every living thing? If we're looking at it with what we have today, then that context may mean something.
BUT if I can't answer the above questions, then I believe it's literal. Noah and his sons with their wives re-populated the earth and created so many new nations.
