NOT ONE LEGITIMATE scientist agrees with that nonsense.

No, we didn't. That's a hoax.

Geezus, SV, you fall for everything that confirms your biases!

Now on to your other assertion/question...

Literally every culture not on the list you gave us is "one culture that doesn't have a flood story".


But more important is this question: If what you claim (about a global flood) is a true story, and not just an endless retelling of the Sumerian flood legend, then why do we see no physical evidence of it? Why is there not a definitive flood-layer found all over the globe, the same way we find the Iridium layer all over the planet from the impact of the asteroid at Chicxulub crater, which can be measured by radar from satellites?

It would be undeniable proof that Genesis is telling the truth, rather than just retelling stories common in the cultures that surrounded the valley of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.

It's clear to anyone paying attention (PAY ATTENTION!) that the story in Genesis is just a retelling of an older tale common in the cultures surrounding that valley, where much of early civilization sprang up. It's also unsurprising, given that most of Genesis (and the rest of the Torah) was written-- or at least, edited together-- while the Jews were captive in Babylon, directly where Sumeria used to be. The legend was reformatted into terms consistent with the emerging Jewish monotheism and culture, just as they did with the Patriarchs who gained extraordinarily long lives in the same way the Sumerians had written that their ancient kings had lived extraordinarily long lives prior to the great flood.

Since you like Wikipedia (I do too), here's the opening paragraph of another article you probably should have read by now:

The Mesopotamian flood stories concern the epics of Ziusudra, Gilgamesh, and Atrahasis. In the Sumerian King List, it relies on the flood motif to divide its history into preflood (antediluvian) and postflood periods. The preflood kings had enormous lifespans, whereas postflood lifespans were much reduced. The Sumerian flood myth found in the Deluge tablet was the epic of Ziusudra, who heard the Divine Counsel plan to destroy humanity, in response to which he constructed a vessel that delivered him from great waters. In the Atrahasis version, the flood is a river flood.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flood_myth

Given that Sumeria's major cities were located in what is now Iraq and Kuwait, it's hardly surprising that people living there would remember a monumental flood of the river valley as "destroying everything", and pass that down into legend, which was finally written down about 2000-1600 BCE.

It is not the stories about the floods that you should be looking at, however. Try answering my question about why there's no physical evidence of this flood... evidence as in "evident to anyone", given that it was so monumental and would be solid proof to quiet skeptics like me. But there's no evidence there.

Is your God trying to hide or deceive us? Or is it just a legend of a local flood that grew out of proportion with its many re-tellings?

I think the latter is much, much more likely.

Ooooooooooooooooooooooooor... or... or maybe you could stay on topic?

You do realize that of the "ten commandments", the first three are entirely concerned with sins against God, and don't mention homosexuality at all -- you do realize that, right? Or do you now follow your own personal religion that doesn't follow the Bible or the ten commandments?

I think he's back to just vomiting up random elements of his program. This seems to be his pattern, whenever he is confronted with problems with his programming... just move on to something else so he doesn't have to think about it.

Other than them nasty gayz, right?

For this, I no longer feel sorry for you, you creep. You're just a disgusting bigot.

And what's it to your vile god who people sleep with? Jealous? Or does he prefer straight porn and watching gay people doesn't work for him? Because that's what we are to him, right? His own reality show and his own porn movie.

All the world's Yahweh'sporn and all the men and women merely porn stars.

Such insistence on homosexuality being grave sin. Perhaps there is something else that you want to tell us?

Also I agree - god does not want anyone go to hell. It cause neither god nor hell exists.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Its a abomination to god though he says himself he created gay people becuase were evil and in saying that i feel sorry for gays and gods judgement is a mystery whore.
