Great blog from Robert Nielsen about the story of Noah’s Ark. This is quite timely given that many of those who voted against equal marriage in today’s Commons debate are of the belief that Eve (by extension all women) was created from one of Adam’s ribs. Like a lot of people who were subjected to Christian indoctrination as children, I found the story of Noah’s Ark hard to believe. I mean, how did he manage to stuff a large wooden boat full of every creature on earth? Zoologists are discovering new species of animal all the time. As for insects….well, there seems to be no mention of them.
If anyone ever claims the Bible is completely true and a book to be taken seriously, I’ll point to the story of Noah’s Ark. This story demolishes any claims Christians may have that the Bible is true, that God is just or religion makes any sense. It is a ridiculous and preposterous tale that is almost too easy to knock down. But it shouldn’t be. Christians aren’t idiots they should recognise how little sense the story makes and drop it. We shouldn’t teach children this daft story based on the extermination of humanity. We shouldn’t blindly accept the story, but instead question it and ask, how did all the animals fit on Noah’s Ark?
