Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life

If we look at the context of Gen 8:20-21, it gives God's reasons for sending the worldwide flood that destroyed all but 8 people in Noah's time.
Two examples were given:
(1) Seth was a righteous man (Gen 4:26) but his later lineage (e.g. Gen 6:5) did not follow Seth's godly heritage.
(2) The Cainites perpetrated violence, starting with Cain (Gen 4).
Then Noah built an altar to the Lord, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. And the Lord smelled a soothing aroma. Then the Lord said in His heart, “I will never again curse the ground for man’s sake, although the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; nor will I again destroy every living thing as I have done.
Could you expound on Genesis 8:20-21, and share where you see all the reasons God destroyed everyone on earth in the flood?
