Ninki, please reread your thread before reading this post.
I never once claimed to know how we got on this planet, or what created life or the universe. I have even gone to the extent of trying to teach
people, that the actual creation of life and the universe is where they should look for a God. In particular, I was speaking to YOU when I was saying
these things. Quite obviously, you forgot. Please, go review some of my posts. Take time to read what I say, without jumping to typical
Now, to show how narrowminded people in defense of something they don't understand can be, I will point out the intent of this thread. The intent of
this thread was not regarding the flood at all. It was a thought experiment to try to put your thoughts to a time when we did not know tsunami's
were created by earthquakes.
Tell me Ninki. If you had no idea that earthquakes caused these waves, and one came ashore killing all of your family. What would you think? What
would you think, if you had no scientific experience at all?
As little as 500 years ago, most of the world was completely UNAWARE of the causes of tsunamis. Most had absolutely NO IDEA. What were they supposed
to think or say? What about an earthquake. 200 Years ago, the cause of one of those was unknown. Just 200 years ago. Now what would you think,
with no scientific knowledge whatsoever?
In regards, your flood that you love so much (so nice of God to kill people he loved), rose 15 cubits according to the bible. 15 cubits and the
mountains were covered? Well, thats what the bible says. It was not until the 1920's that the bible was revised to say that the water rose above
the mountains. nearly 2000 years before what? Before the sceintific revolution. Before people started to question the bible with contradictions and
scientific evidence. It wasnt until the previous century, that revisions to this large book took such an undertaking. Not until people got smart
enough to realize things like 15 cubits equals app. 22.5 feet. Many mountains in that region over their exceed 10000 feet. Oops, typo maybe? Or
maybe they just were not thinking anyone would bother questioning.
Tell me Ninki, honestly. If you were alive 5000 years ago, and a disaster of natural causes occured....... Who would you blame? An undersea
earthquake which you had no knowledge of even existing...or a God?
When I say I feel you would blame God's.....am I interjecting thoughts True?
P.S. I knew you would like the avatar Ninki. Don't you just hate it when we find in tact whale skeletons with legs.....
