    Well...... what do YOU think?
    The first few chapters of Genesis are allegory. You know, atheists have better material than this.

    I have no time for fundamentalists. Literal interpretations of the Bible were seen as heresy in Roman times and those interpretations should be seen as just as absurd today.

    that's the thing about divine intervention...you don't have to deserve it.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Did the other people deserve to die? Why did God withhold help from them?

    For that matter, when God could easily have intervened on 9/11, why didn't he? It would have been easy for him. After all, he did it for you.

    One thing to note, our God must be more powerful than their god, based on body count alone.

    that was sarcasm, people.....

    Re: Do You believe Noah?

    The story is nonsense, the product of primitive minds who didn't understand the world around them. That anyone would believe in such ridiculous things today is pathetic. The ark, as described in the Bible, was completely unseaworthy and there simply isn't enough water on the planet, by several orders of magnitude, to flood the entire planet as described. You couldn't fit all of the animals on the ark, or even ten arks, even if, by some miracle, you could get them all together. And isn't it funny that when all the animals were trudging back home, none of them died and left fossils anywhere but where they originated?

    The idea that anyone takes this, or most Bible stories seriously, is absurd. Faith is not an excuse for irrationality.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Just to be clear, it was 2 of every unclean animal and 7 of every clean animal.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
