    No, tell the Norse version! No, wait, the Hindu version, it takes longer. Ooh, but the Egyptian one is the best, and involves parthenogenesis, an actual scientific principle.

    This is too accurate…
    Unfortunately as more nonsense is hi-lighted, Those nut cases just pretend that that story is either irreverent OR misunderstood…

    The Sumerian king Ziusudra of Shuruppak inherited the rulership from his father. The Akkadians called him Utnapishtim or Atra-Hasis.

    Ziusudra reigned as both king and gudug priest for 10 sars of 3,600. In that time the gods decided to destroy mankind, but the god Enki warned Ziusudra through a hole in the reed wall. Ziusudra built a boat with bitumen and a roof, like apsu.

    Then the flood swept over . . .

    Lake Agassiz was an immense glacial lake located in the middle of North America. In 6200 BC the collapse of the ice dam holding back the lake released an enormous cascade of water that added an estimated 1 to 3 m (3.3 to 9.8 ft) to total global sea level. The initial pulse may have occurred in a matter of weeks. Coincided with mass migrations and rise of agriculture:

    Um, okay, I know about the book of Genesis, but can you explain the book of Partheno-Genesis?

    Shouldn’t they be teaching creation as according to the Quran? We’re supposed to bend over backwards to keep from offending Muslims while they tear down the churches of other religions, destroy the monuments of other religions, burn the writings of other religions, and kill anyone who doesn’t believe in their religion. After all, we need to respect that.

    How does a lunar calendar (Jews and Muslims still use a lunar calendar; in Israel the year is 5772, in most Muslim countries it is 1433) change months to years, and make Noah 600 months old? Noah’s son Shem has a son at 100, and lives another 500 years after that. So, if you’re right and the"years" were months, then Shem died at 41 and had his son when he was 8.

    A myth is a sacred story, usually intended to explain the origin of something. Rational Christians understand the Bible to be myth, not history, and seek there for meaning not facts. The way one may consider a poem.

    “You can take the Bible literally, or you can take it seriously, but you can’t do both.”
