I believe this theory over global warming
Thank you StormDancer & Player -
Glad you enjoyed the entertaining aspect to my re-write to
the Noah 'conspiracy'
(it's an abstract from a short Novella I have written)
So, as someone deeply familiar with Biblical cannontation (NOT Religious - EVER!!!)
I'll try my hand at explaining why Noah's story is false...
Long ago as someone whom pays attention to detail...and a natural born inquisitor;
I dissected the Noah fable -
I will do this from memory, so please correct me if I may be wrong
Noah built an Ark from God's instructions of 'gopher-wood' (?) to the measurements
of 300 Cubits long - 50 Cubits wide and 30 Cubits tall... all which works out in feet
using what we today understand of the Cubit measurement to measure Noah's Ark
at approximately 450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet tall.
God sent (Noah did not collect or go in search of) "TWO" pairs of species of
everything "UN-CLEAN" and "SEVEN" pairs of species everything "CLEAN".
The ONLY humans aboard the Ark were Noah, his wife , their three sons and the sons three wives.
God gushed water from the ground and rain from the sky for 40 days and 40 nights.
(not a simple rain but 40 days and nights of TORENTIAL downpour)
The Ark was adrift for another 100 days AFTER the 40 days, 40 nights.
(zero to do with Global Warming)
That is where Noah's story credibility becomes false, from my point of view.
There is no possible way the Ark, which just happens to be smaller than todays
freighter ship/oil tanker ships, to be able to passage that many species.
(even if we discount all other countries on the western side of the world
as it was unknown in Noah's history)
What of all the food needed to feed the floating Zoo - and ALL the fresh
water needed for such a 140 day journey!
(that would take ANOTHER Ark in itself for the amount of provisions needed)
Then there are only 8 humans aboard the vessel, which according to a small
city's Zoo at todays standards, takes many more than 8 humans to attend.
Now lets look at the Ark's passage:
Ask yourself how it was that the Ark survived floating debris which would have
washed against the Ark causing damage.
How was it that the Ark wasn't smashed to pieces against debris, huge rocks or
even towering mountains..?
None of this is possible even at todays standards of technology, therefore
the Noah's Ark story (pardon the pun) is a WASHOUT!
There is much more to the fable, but all understands the ramifications
that was just explained - Noah's Ark (according to bible standards) not possible!
So we have history claiming Noah saved his family and the species
of this planet, but not other humans.. and yet, the world over
has flood stories reflecting Noah's unfound conclusions.
Most people reflect this knowledge to the Epic story of Giglamesh,
however, the Mayan stele tells a story of not only a great flood,
but also other calamities such as earthquakes and volcanism.
I realize all I did here was to create more questions -
but why follow blindly when the bible tells the story
hidden between the lines.
After all, as the bible quotes: "You have been given eyes for which to see!"
