But nothing on the scale of the flood mentioned in Noah's story. Where would the millions of gallons of water have gone, I wonder?


remember when egyptians considered what they knew as the whole world? how about when the americas didn`t exist 500 years ago? you`re confusing what WE know as the whole world, and what someone 2000 years ago would`ve considered the whole world.

"Actually Markust123, The story of Noah can be traced back to the story of Utnapishtam, from the epic of Gilgamesh. It is almost exactly the same story, only substitute the Judeo-Christian God for the Mesopotamian Pantheon."

The author also talks about how that story was worked into the Noah story also (starting on page 79). It's a pretty interesting book. I wouldn`t recommend it to anyone who wants to keep their faith though.

@5cats: But it's not a matter of where he grips it, it`s a simple question of weight ratios. A 1-ounce bird cannot carry a 1-lb coconut!

@patchy: How did two kangaroos hop from Australia to the Middle East? I didn't say the story was rational, only that the criticism was misplaced.

This Is How Noah Got The Bamboo! and you know it!
