"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
Think of it this way. Somebody shoots at you. The bullet misses your head by a few inches. Was it God that pushed the bullet a few inches around your head? No. The other guy missed. It's as simple as that really.I don't like this notion that just because science has a place God has no place and vice versa, I believe it is very possible for God and science to co-exist, I have seen it happen before.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
I was tempted to put vote "I don't know", because that's the default position on all things we have no evidence for, but I gathered that what you called "Not Christian and it's total and utter rubbish" was just your way of saying "I don't believe it".
Either way, I don't believe it.
Divide Noah's age by 12 and you get 75. Which would have been extremely old for his times. They had a different calendar and figured their ages by the phases of the moon.
Historians have placed a great change in the local seas during Noah's time. All that rain caused a big mud slide that dumped much of the Caspian Sea (or some other local sea) into the area. Noah built the Ark and took upon it many animals. The problem comes from the fact that His flood did not cover the whole earth. just what people of that era considered to be the whole earth. Therefore we are not all descendants of Noah.
It's a nice Bible story. I try not to beat it up too much.
As with any such story, I would say that to reconcile the more fantastical elements with what we know today, all a Christian really has to do is believe that the ancient texts in the old testament were crafted according to what people could understand then, and the allegorical nature of such stories does not have to be taken literally in order to remain consistent with one's faith.
