How the least amount of truth, may turn out to be the most accurate statement in all of scripture.
The story of Noah’s Ark, thoroughly debunked as fable from days past is now considered a parable. A myth written to our time? A lesson to be learned? A prophecy? Possibly. If it is from god, there are two choices (maybe more) about the significance of the story. What is the lesson to be learned?
All flesh had become corrupt. But Noah was perfect in his generations. (his genealogy was not corrupt) Genesis-6 Genetic engineering of plants and people could possibly change the world as we know it. All flesh has the potential to become corrupted, but who will resist it? Genetic modifications outside of natural selection is an unknown consequence waiting to happen. Alleviating human suffering may just cause the greatest suffering ever told. Who will remain perfect in their generations through natural selection?
The earth had been corrupted. Boy isn’t this the truth? Why is it the very people that believe these scriptures hold the most contempt for our planet and it’s limited resources?
All the animals needed saving from extinction. Species are dying off at an unprecedented rate since recorded history. Disregard for the sanctity of all life is a religious problem, not a people problem
Global flooding was immanent. Climate deniers wake up. Even if just a metaphorical sense of the story of Noah is true, the flooding is future, not past. The story of Noah is prophecy, because we know it’s not history.
The two choices; continue the way we are headed, or stop this nonsense. Interesting turn of events; Now it is the Humanist and scientist calling out the warnings, while the religious right fights for destruction of our world as an inherent right. In the end, the story that had the least amount of truth, may turn out to be the most accurate in all of scripture.
By fine tuning something that never happened, pioneering prophets of religion have dug themselves in deeply.
Muhammad (pbuh) has rehashed the Moses story and added his own elaborate touches as revealed to him in a cave. Noah is praised by God in the Quran, which shows his great status with Muhammad (pbuh).
Others prophets have added to the Moses story as well, quoting and ad-libbing to the prophecies. Joseph Smith wrote an entire new book of Moses which also includes flood lore. The book Abraham also has flood details and well as the doctrine and covenants and Book of Mormon. And while inspired prophets recount the story year after year as though inspired by god, geology, archaeology, and good ol’ common sense is enough to debunk Noah’s Ark.
Fundamental Christians still teach Noah and Moses as though they’ve never seen the evidence against it. Mega church leader Joel Osteen has recent sermons confirming the ark story. Money does not mean intelligent. He also still preaches the Moses story and the exodus. Inspired? Like Ken Hamm? More like caught in the stream of fables and easily debunked bible stories that never happened. But, truth matters not if the outcome is a peaceably blind addiction to someone watching over you. They know it’s not true. They say our truth and morality is relativistic. Well theirs is irrelevant.
Proof their prophetic prowess is a hoax. The Jews have abandoned the Moses story and the exodus, bondage, buildings of brick, not stone (which don’t exist from the time) and the entire sensible world knows the ark story could not even be executed by our largest modern freighters and a thousand deck hands. If they were truly prophets, there’s no way they could have been blindsided by the facts that these events never happened.

Happy World Flood Day!!
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Northcoast Oil And Hydrocarbon (NOAH) geologists coupled with geophysicists and a Johannesburg based archeological team unearthed a massive water valve south of Addis Ababa during an open pit oil investigation. Dubbed immediately ” The fountain of the deep”, the valve measures 30 meters in diameter and is made of an unknown metal component. The valve is free of rust and appears operational.
“This is no coincidence ” says team leader Jorge Medirás. The discovery occurred on world flood day, commemorating 4365 years since the great flood. A memorial service is planned to honor the 8 survivors.
“In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep were opened up, and the windows of heaven were opened.”
Genesis 7:11 KJV
Archaeologists are currently deciphering curious markings indicating at least 12 additional pre Babylonian valves are in existence at various global locations. No windows have been discovered. More to follow.
