they have to act offended. they might not go to heaven otherwise. if there was no hell or heaven - would there be Christianity? would anyone care so much?

@Crakrjak: "You're misinterpreting it."

No, I`m reading it as it was understood mean before science proved that it was wrong.

What you`re doing is reinterpreting it to fit the current science, which is not how it was originally meant.

For example, "raqiya` - firmament (of vault of heaven supporting waters above) considered by Hebrews as solid and supporting `waters` above" (source)

As for there being nothing in the Bible supporting geocentrism, again you`re wrong. For example, Psalm 104:5 says, "[God"> set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved." Similarly, see I Chronicles 16:30. In other words, everything moves around the Earth. These passages and others have been used to support past doctrines of geocentrism.

@ Otto67: the part about the Republican senator scare me. I can't understand how a grown man with any amount of power would even think it`s OK to say that out loud! And obviously, god lied and broke the so called covenant many times since then. And I`m sure people will say the people in New Orleans and Japan, for only two examples, deserved it. To which I say... if you supposedly have free will...why does god interfere to punish people on a massive scale?. WHy doesn`t he tell his faithful.."hey, a Hurricane is coming...it`s time to gtfo of there but don`t tell the gays and atheists". He`s a mean god. Or he can`t because he doesn`t really exist. I choose option 2. I`m much better off without him either way.

Other cultures in the area (East Africa, Bangladesh, etc) all have similar flooding stories that match up with the timeline.

Funny, but I don't recall anything in Egyptian records from that time describing a flood. If there was and I just haven`t come across it then please enlighten me.

[quote]Now for the cause of the flooding: a meteor that hit about 100 miles off dead center in the Indian Ocean.[/quote]
Somewhat plausible. However, the volume of water necessary to cover Mount Ararat, where Noah`s Ark supposedly landed after the flood, in 40 days would require over 400 feet of water per day. Also, if the Indian Ocean was the source of the water, why didn`t all freshwater aquatic species die?
