The flood story is less repugnant than the thought of a "god" gently putting a couple of month old babies into a bath tub, then sitting down by the bath tub, put the plug in
and turn the water on. Then he stays there and watches the show. All the time, having the ability to pull the plug, turn the tap off or to pick the babies up out of the water.
But instead he just watches as the water rises and rises.

But this silly story is just two little babies. How many were supposed to have drowned in the flood? Add to that, a few helpless little kittens and puppies.
Most people would consider it pretty sick for a person to do it, why do they think it a divine and glorious moment for their all powerful, all knowing, loving god?

One answer you will sometimes hear is "it's hard for us to understand the utter sinfulness of sin." Meaning that sin is SO bad and SO repugnant to an utterly holy god, we simply cannot understand the gravity of sin.

But still.... with that logic, and with the sentence of the hands that shed innocent blood being an abomination.... you would think that the ark would have been ful of a bunch of babies or something....

You know, I can tolerate the humans, but why'd god have to fuck with the puppies and kittens?

Absolute monster.

I am looking forward to going very very very much. I don't care what anyone says.
I really want to see the part where he whips out his microscope and collects all the microbes. He does do that, right ? Don't tell me he doesn't.

RE: Saw Noah this weekend
I have to go see the movie, must see the movie:

Emma Watson and Russell Crowe, come on. I'm not going to miss this combination.

And, as a highly recommended visual experience, only a big screen will do.

Oh yes, I love water, moving water, lots and lots of moving water.

As I understand it the books of the Apocrypha[1] such as the Book of Enoch[2] were included as source material.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

I've not heard of the former and can take or leave the latter but a Winstone & Hopkins combo ... that's worth the ticket price.
