Reader: I recently had a discussion with my cousin proving to
him that Judaism is the only true religion and he asked me how do we know
that someone did not make up the story about Noach since almost everyone
was killed? I didn't know what to answer him. How does one prove there was
an Adam and Eve? The Torah wasn't written down at that time or at Noach's
In case that is insufficient, we know the veracity of the Flood and all of history by using the proof of Sinai: Any event witnessed by masses which is intelligible to the common person must be true. The presence of masses removes fabrication, as masses cannot have one common motive. Simple phenomena removes the possibility of ignorance. Once ignorance and fabrication cannot be entertained, an historical account must be true. There is no other possibility that it can be false, as intentional and accidental corruption if the story have been eliminated.
