Who wants a good laugh?
I love whenever Bible literalists decide they need to try and scientifically prove the mythology of their scripture is actually historic and scientific fact. It’s like watching a child try to walk for the first time, only to see them fall and slam their little fat faces on the ground. Call me a evil bastard if you will, but I try to enjoy the little things.
Here’s a hilarious article that will have you in stitches; the author is trying to prove Noah’s Ark was a real event, rather than an allegory on redemption. Here’s his summary:
It is obvious that when all the facts of the Genesis account of the flood are examined that there is no reason to doubt that the ark could easily have carried its intended cargo. The biblical account is not a revision of a Babylonia myth. All the scientific evidence shows that the ark could easily have contained all of the animals that were used to repopulate the earth after the flood.
I love how he admits the source of the story is most likely a Babylonian myth that the authors of the Bible totally plagiarized, and then boldly denies it once he’s done with his “calculation”. There’s a whole cottage industry of people seeking to marry their primitive Bronze Age mythology with modern science. It would be fucking hilarious if it wasn’t so sadly pointless. I’m not sure anyone who actually believes in the Bible really cares about the truth, and there’s certainly ZERO integrity in trying to prove something as ridiculous as Noah’s Ark being historical fact. Still, it’s helluva fun to watch this gigantic train wreck. Enjoy!
