    The wonder of genealogy.

    Just a reminder... The Bible is not just a detail of the life and teachings of Jesus, the Prophets and Ultimately God Himself...but, a great history lesson!!

    Here is the real truth, the bible is NOT a history book, it is a religious text and nothing more.

    That pretty much squares with everything else in the history of human civilization. Noah and the flood being somewhere around 3000 BC.
    Lately I've been studying up on China's 'Huangdi' who I theorize is one and the same as Noah but possibly 'Shem' or one of their boys. Huangdi is reputedly the 1st Ancient Patriarch who began China's civilization and this includes rescuing China from a massive flood. He eventually teaches the Chinese all sorts of things from architecture to building boats and social systems etc.
    As well Greeks and Romans (and many others) have 'Titans' or various kinds of 'demi-gods' and 'immortal' kinds of patriarchs. Now, I don't consider Noah (or Shem, or Ham or Japeth' to be actual 'demi-gods' but stop and think about how they would be perceived by (for example) a lot of early Greeks 5 and 10 generations later? They would think they were 'immortal' (imagine living and dying but Shem still lives on seeming without aging) but they also have preserved knowledge from a previous civilization (math, sciences, architecture, religious knowledge) but accumulate vast amounts in their long lives. To an early Greek this guy would appear a 'god' among men. or 'partly divine' or some kind of special god-man.

    The great flood in the bible does not square with anything in history or science at all. There is no scientific evidence on theplanet to prove the flood ever happened. It was a local flood and nothing more. There is no writting about it in Chinese or Egyptian culture and no evidence of it in those counties either. There is no evidence in the ice cores in the Arctic either or in the coral reefs around the planet.

    Yes, the great flood squares with recorded human history and science. There is overwhelming scientific evidence it happened. There were millions of local floods as well. There is writing about it in Chinese culture and Egyptian culture and overwhelming evidence in those regions. There is evidence in ice cores in the Arctic and in coral reefs around the planet.

    Do not waste my time with another pointless noob reply full of stupid crap as usual. You are not at my level, I am convinced you are not just stupid but have mental problems. Don't make me block you. Do not reply.
