Talk about shitty jobs!

Thats easy...Noah obviously had brought on the ark a pair of Dung Beetles! Geesh you are silly! Thats so obvious! he works in mysterious ways...and the rest is left for the Dung Beetles.

The flood was not a world wide flood. The original text suggests a regional flood. If this is so, there would be plenty of room on the ark to store the regional animals.

Little known Biblical trivia time!
Fourteen of each clean animal was on the ark, and two of each unclean.
The Nephilim survived the flood which suggests that it was regional.

So the people who didn't live in the region lived?

So then what was the point of the flood?

Also, why a flood? Why put Noah through all this work when god could have snapped his fingers and killed all the people he wanted?

I simply get hung up on words like EVERYTHING and ALL. And statements like "ONLY Noah was left and those with him" Sorry......i just get tripped up over those little semantics. ALL, EVERYTHING, and ONLY..................

And the waters prevailed so mightily on the earth that all the high mountains under the whole heaven were covered. 20 The waters prevailed above the mountains, covering them fifteen cubits1 deep. 21 And aall flesh died that moved on the earth, birds, livestock, beasts, all swarming creatures that swarm on the earth, and all mankind. 22 Everything on the dry land bin whose nostrils was the breath of life died. 23 He blotted out every living thing that was on the face of the ground, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens. They were blotted out from the earth. Only cNoah was left, and those who were with him in the ark.

"ALL the high mountains UNDER heaven". From God's POV...that would be pretty much all of them. Nothing regional about that...unless god has limits on how far he can see. ALL under HEAVEN... pretty inclusive. Unless you live in a world where all does not mean all and heaven is just a stripper name.

As a matter of fact this grouping of versus make a painful point to show over and over again about how much destruction happened. EVERY living thing....includes everything. Unless 'Everything' means 'Somethings but not all things'.

Then we get down to the actual meaning of words. I think Seth calls this Apologist Gymnastics.

OR.... just tell noah to grab the backpacks and head a few miles west. Dispense with the boat nonsense and just stay on the dry land out of the flood planes. THAT would make more sense. But then again, looking for reason in ALL the wrong places.

Is that all the wrong places? Or just some of all?

All of the some but not some of the ALL. Everything i look at, which is just somethings has me totally which is to say partially confused which is to say......
Oh bother.........

Actually this regional flood concept that was just floated is the WORST explanation of OT that i have ever come across. i have seen it before, but it truly defies any reason. You have to unplug the thinker to swallow that down. Seriously god could have simply told the Noah family to put on their running shoes and sprint to higher ground. Why even bother with building a ship? The "Ask Him" reply is the ultimate cop out. Ask who? The FSM? Xenu? Athena? In this forum, all those mythical clowns are ALL the same. And when i say all...i mean the TOTAL and COMPLETE lot of them, lacking NONE and inclusive of every single one of them.
