I should do a kickstarter to find Jack's beanstalk. I hear it reached all the way up to the clouds where giants lived. If we're looking for make believe thing a clue where the golden goose lives is more useful.

nekom: While I of course don't believe that 2 of every living creature once lived on a boat, it is interesting that so many ancient tales speak of a great flood.  Everywhere from Gilgamesh to the old stories of Native Americans.  Could it be that an asteroid caused a mega-tsunami seen around the world?  Or maybe it's just that every culture had experienced some pretty gnarly floods at one point in time.


Common shared experience. Civilizations form near sources of water. Sources of water can flood. Floods kill people and the story grows.

Disgruntled Goat: If the world flooded, where did the water recede to?


It simply flowed back into the Abyss of Waters.

Here's a technical schematic that illustrates this question (warning - science content ahead):

She can stop looking for the Ark. It's being handled by top men.

well it is a good idea to look for flecks of a boat because there is no evidence for a worldwide flood event whatsoever.  And that would be easy to prove if it did happen (how does geology work?!) with a worldwide layer of silt existing in the geologic record.  It doesn't exist.  Worldwide flood did not happen.

Religion is stupid.  People are stupid.  Fools and their money are easily parted.  donna D'errico is smart for fleecing the stupid.

FuryOfFirestorm: error 303: b2theory: Mugato: The animals thing aside, it'd be pretty hard to flood the entire world except one mountain in only 40 days of rain. The grand canyon alone would be impossible to fill. Waterworld was not a documentary.

That's your only issue with the flood? How about the fact that there isn't enough water on the planet to make such a thing happen. There isn't enough moisture in the atmosphere to raise the oceans by 2 inches let alone hundreds to thousands of feet.

"There was 4,000 years ago" or "You can't put constraints on God" are the obvious retorts.

That's the main problem when trying to reason with people who treat the Bible like historically and scientifically accurate text - any holes in their argument is easily patched by saying "GOD DID IT!"


It's fun to play whackamole where everything literally happened, except the stuff you can prove didn't, at which point it's "allegory" until you stop paying attention and they go back to claiming it literally happened.

There was a great quote from someone at National Geographic about Noah's Ark expeditions:

"Whenever someone goes looking for Noah's Ark, they almost always find it."

"I'd read different stories about how people thought they found the cages and I was completely intrigued. I decided that someday I'd go to Turkey, climb Mount Ararat and search for Noah's ark."

So not only are we supposed to believe that he built a giant boat that would hold a breeding pair of every single creature on the planet, but he built cages as well? I didn't believe the story when I just theought they were compartments that were a part of the ark itself. I don't see him handcrafting 10 gazillion cages as well...

Just like they found the ark of the covenant in some hut in Africa that no one will let visitors inspect.

Keep in mind that to a lot of these people "the world" pretty much meant walking to the horizon, and the next horizon spot over. What was considered "the whole world" a few thousand years is now called New Orleans...

We had a month of rain in Arizona when I lived in Flagstaff, and it resulted in some flooding in Flag and Phoenix. Not really biblical, and almost 40 days' worth.

That's another thing I don't get about the whole Noah's Ark myth: why have Noah make the ark when God can just snap his fingers and BLAM! Instant ark! Heck, why even flood the Earth in the first place? God could have saved a lot of time and effort by smiting all the wicked instead. Seems a lot better than waiting for an old man to make an ark that has enough room for his family, two of every animal on Earth, food and potable water for every person and animal, and still have space to put away the piles upon piles of feces being produced.

The question I have isn't where the water came from, but where it went. Maybe however many years ago it supposedly happened there WAS more moisture in the air, but where the fark did the water all go, and all at once? It didn't take 4 or 5 centuries for Noah to be able to start repopulating the world, so it happened fast.

In other words, it's all a morality play and total bullshiat.

For the same reason that the story of Jesus parallels the story of Horus so closely. Also, keep in mind that their "world" was smaller than ours. So small, in fact, it was flat. We know the story of the bible was complete nonsense, simply by the fact that their "blameless," infallible, all-knowing god was the one who allowed the serpent into "paradise" in the first place. After that, there is nothing more really worth knowing, because the house of cards has already fallen.

Nope. The implication is that their confirmation bias is so thick they'll almost always believe they find it, no matter what they actually 'found'.

AT that point, LEAN processes didn't exist, so God didn't understand efficiency.

That's what I'm going with...

Looks like you unprincipled heathens need some schooling in old-timey science of the biblical variety... read it and weep haters - it's all there in gods' word - you can't argue with that!

That it might take hold of the ENDS OF THE EARTH, that the wicked might be shaken out of it? (KJV)

The tree grew, and was strong, and the height thereof reached unto heaven, and the sight thereof to the ENDS OF ALL THE EARTH: (KJV)

It seems that after the flood god lifted the excess water off of the Earth and put it into space.
Here's where it get good.
He went on to explain that this water is the dark matter that we keep searching for.
