comment How do Christians justify their belief and how do they convince others of their belief?
@eWolf That could (and probably should) be formulated as a separate question or two or three.

Not everything that is true can be logically proven. Think about interpersonal relationships and your feelings for another person. If you contend that all of your feelings for other people can be based on or explained by the laws of logic, I would assume you've never been in love. The Evangelical Protestant view is that Christianity is a relationship, not a religion. Christians are those who have responded to God's invitation to a personal relationship with Him. Like human relationships, there are aspects of this that cannot be logically proven, yet are true.

comment Are other flood legends relevant to Christians?
@MarcGravell If the Biblical account of Noah is true, there's one single event with only 8 survivors. After languages were confused at Bable (Genesis 11) the single human culture was split and the multiple cultures began to diverge. Each culture could carry on an account of the flood.

comment Why and how do Creationists agree with microevolution but disagree with the idea of macroevolution
@Richard The last sentence of one of the microevolution definitions you referenced states: "The accumulation of many microevolutionary changes results in macroevolution."

@userunknown Wikipedia has an article that attempts to answer your questions, but may be challenging to follow.

@RexKerr I don't know how many people share my view. Like I said in my answer, I know it is not a scientific view and I don't believe that science will ever be able to prove that the Bible correctly describes the act or process of creation. Personally, I think most (if not all) creation scientists are barking up the wrong tree. Most (if not all) short blurbs I've heard about how "science proves creation" contain serious scientific flaws. Trying to use to use science to prove a miracle sounds definitionally impossible.
