[This is AV1611VET's way to support correctness of the literal story of the flood]

Have you noticed, Vance, that all of these cultures that have supposedly been around for so long --- got the flood story wrong?

In everything I've read so far --- not one has mentioned Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth by name; given the dimensions of the Ark; the duration of the rainfall; the windows of Heaven; the animals going in two by two --- nothing.

This tells me that either the Flood didn't happen, or the stories were written after-the-fact to mock the true story --- and which explanation do you think I'm going to go with?

Neither. There's a simpler explanation. Each culture had a big local flood - maybe even a tsunami (all early humans lived near bodies of water), but it wasn't the same flood. After all, how would some bronze age Arab goat herder know the flood covered the whole world as opposed to the few square miles he saw in his lifetime?

Gah. The more I read his posts, the more it seems to me that he's just trolling that forum. I mean seriously, any one of us could have written that as satire, if we were satirical geniuses, that is.

Something that never happened must be true because it names people that never existed and gives rough dimensions of something that was never built?

why am I still not convinced?

Damn it! Now I'm going to spend the rest of the day wondering which one he'll pick.

Does anyone else picture AV1611 as looking like a grizzled old mountain man, with a scraggly white beard and white hair?

Wow, Noah and his people sure had A LOT of shit to pick up if two of EVERY animal were living on that ark with him!

AVVET is like the Uncle Remus of Fundieland. "How did the camel get its hump, AVVET?"

But why would they write these stories to mock the real one? Would they just be aching to piss God off again after he heartlessly slaughtered millions of defenseless people, infants, and fuzzy animals?

I know, I know! The wrong one!

I'm amazed. It's like he goes out of his way to build the logical conclusion then ignores it.

Dude, thinking, you're doin' it wrong!
