Almost all of it is political propaganda of one sort or another.

Wow amazing job there Smile The treachery runs deeper than I thought.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

The whole Noah's ark story is a retelling of Utnapishtim's flood and animal story in the Epic of Gilgamesh .

People have some crazy dreams without drugs.
And then I'd you add in one's ability to make connections in your brain that allows for all kinds of different things to be related. You get conspiracy nuts.

We simply come from very irrational minds trying to make sense of it all.

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

Atrahasis far predates Gilgamesh. And Ziusudra predates them all.

The fucking bible is like 4th-hand shit.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

Interesting, the link shows that all of the flood myths probably originated from a real flood in the Sumerian city of Shuruppak around 3100 B.C.

There needn't be a single incident serving as genesis (ha!). Humans have witnessed floods for as long as there have been humans.
(especially early settled peoples, who pretty much by definition all lived on floodplains)

RE: The crazy sh*t in the bible - where did it come from?
It all derives from the same story. Was there a real flood behind the story? Who knows? Is the human imagination limited to what it sees?

http://www.livius.org/fa-fn/flood/flood2.html

Quote:The Epic of Atrahasis is the fullest Mesopotamian account of the Great Flood. The text is known from several versions: two written by Assyrian scribes (one in the Assyrian, one in the Babylonian dialect), the third one (on three tablets) was written during the reign of king Ammi-saduqa of Babylonia (1647-1626 BCE).

The story of the Flood is the final part of this epic, which starts with complaints by the Lesser Gods, who refuse to work any longer. Humankind is created, but men make so much noise, that the gods decide to wipe them out. The plan to send a Deluge, however, is betrayed by the god Enki, who sends a dream to Atrahasis.

Is the "flood" real but the "lesser gods complaints" mere bullshit?
