The Timeline for Noah’s Flood

And it came to pass in the six hundred and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, that the waters were dried up from the earth; and Noah removed the covering of the ark and looked, and indeed the surface of the ground was dry. And in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dried.

(Genesis 8:13-14) NKJV

The timeline for Noah’s flood comes directly from scripture and this is the framework that we use to interpret evidence from the stratigraphic column.
