Noah's Ark Impossible To Have Happened

Whoops. I hope I don't ruffle any feathers.

I'm only stating the obvious when I say the whole story is impossible, but at least a few believers can read it and weep.

There is one weapon that the religious can wield against science.

FAITH....

The complete blind acceptance of something that has no chance in the world to be proven.

Thank God I happen to be taking a Nihilist approach to life at the moment.

FUCKING DUH.

Do you think that anyone who holds the Bible as an important text is going to think of this as an important counter-argument? You're talking about a collection of texts in which a man rises from the dead three days after his crucification.

The principle difference between theists and non-theists is the acceptance of the idea of deity. Once you get over that, all other paradoxes are dead.

Noah's ark was a popular story amongst all kinds of cultures in that area(ever read The Epic of the Gilgamesh?), especially due to the frequent flooding on the Euphrates. I'm a Christian and I don't even believe Noah's ark happened, nor do I believe proof that it didn't happen challenges any but the most fundamentalist of Judeo-Christianity.

In essence, this is a pointless thread that tells us something everyone already knew. You might as well have posted that the world isn't flat.

The ark story and all the other great flood myths are probably based on a single flood even in prehistory that wiped out a budding civilization or something similar. It's obvious to any rational person that Noah's Ark as stated in the Bible is impossible without a LOT of interference by God, so much so that it doesn't make sense to bother with a boat at all.

The other day I went through the genealogies of Gensis 5, curious how long it was from Adam to the flood. Just over 1,500 years. That indicates a world-wide flood in 2,500 BC if you subscribe to the literal interpretation of Genesis that makes the earth 6000 years old. Problem is, a lot of civilizations thrived in that time period and left quite a bit of evidence that they weren't wiped out by a catastrophic world-ending flood.

Rational people know the entire bible is impossible. Delusional people 'know' the entire bible is completely factual.

Rational people don't make sweeping statements that are completely unsupportable.
