According to the Bible, the Flood covered the whole world. Certainly, it would not be possible for waters to cover Mount Ararat without covering the whole world - assuming that there is somehow enough water to achieve this. On the other hand, Egypt and other ancient civilisations continued right through the period attributed to the Flood, blissfully unaware of its existence. If there was a great Flood, it must have been a localised event.

Ian Wilson (Before the Flood) has amassed considerable evidence that the story of Noah's Flood, in common with a number of even more ancient flood stories from the Near East and elsewhere, is probably a folk memory of the natural flooding of the Black Sea. This low-lying region had been a fertile plain until the Mediterranean Sea broke through the Bosphorus, although not in 3000 BCE but actually 5200 BCE. The prevailing consensus of scientists is that between 14,000, when the last Ice Age came to an end, and 5000 BCE the world's sea-levels rose by no less than 120 to 130 metres. This sea level rise resulted in the British Isles being cut off from the European mainland, the Bering Strait being opened, and the Mediterranean Sea broke through the Bosphorus. It is this last event that probably brought about the story of the Flood.
