Not sure if you're right about the size of cubits, but your math is wrong.... 20 X 3,000=6,000 not 5,000.

Yes, 20 x 3000 = 6000, but that is inches. 6000 inches does equal 5000 feet.

So close, guys. 20 inches/cubit x 3000 cubits = 60,000 inches = 5,000 feet.
I don't see anything fundy about this. BHiles has used logic to reject a biblical but retarded notion. Go BHiles.

How is this fundie. Hell this is a downright logical thought process.
Logic...from Rapture Ready...perhaps the end IS near...

I'd like to see the subsequent comments to that one.
Logic? At RR?

It scares me, Caustic. It truly, truly scares me.

...aaand what does that teach us?

The Book of Enoch is part of the Apocrypha. The Apocrypha is a part of the Roman Catholic scripture, but was rejected by almost all protestant denominations and is excluded from the KJV. I think the point of this post is to illustrate the absurdity of the Apocrypha, as opposed to the books retained in the KJV which are so rational and logical they must be the work of god.
Just ask the next talking snake or donkey you meet.

"Book of Enoch"
Whoever wrote this were probably manipulated* into doing so by the 'Protoculture' - they created the Zentraedi, genetically engineered warrior giants around 60-80 feet tall.
...but then, you think Pi = 3, as the Bible states, right? Mathematics says otherwise.
*- Just as the Vorlons did in "Babylon 5", with the various 'Younger Races' - including Humans. So that we would perceive them in a positive way whenever they were outside their Encounter Suits, as well as to create telepaths for use against the Shadows in any future war.

Wow...this is probably the least fundie thing I've ever heard on this site. Granted, as pointed out above, most people ON RR probably don't accept the Book of Enoch as truth, but still, this deserves a far lower FI than -3.

The Rationater! :D
There's an earlier quote this month, where someone was talking to BHiles, so I'm pretty sure that BHiles is not a fundie, but one of us.
Poor boy, getting defamed like this.

Why is this here? It's a glimmer of logic, not another display of petulant animosity towards non-Christian things.

Enoch is a forgery.

Major math fail but not terribly fundie.
