This is what's known as a strawman argument; using one highly contentious proposition as proof of another. Your whole argument rests on the premise outlined in your first sentence: "If you take the Holy Bible as the inerrant and eternal word of God and read it literally". Many people, myself included, regard the bible as nothing more than a bunch of fairy stories made up to scare the ignorant. The bible is nothing more than a work of complete fiction, albeit an extremely successful one.

Carbon dating of fossils is routine. And carbon dating shows that fossils recovered are orders of magnitudes older than 7000 years - unless, that is, you think carbon dating is fake science. Carbon dating has shown fossils to be as old as 3.4 billion years, and as young as 10,000 years [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fossil]. Even allowing for some discrepancy in the carbon dating process, that's a rather large period over which to have had a flood. Scientists and critical thinkers discounted the notion that all fossils came from the flood many years ago. Da Vinci questioned it, 350 years before Darwin published Origin of Species. In fact, there's hardly a credible scientist around who believes there ever was a global flood of the kind described in the bible. It's nonsense.
