Noah’s flood

Then the Lord said to Noah, “Enter the ark, you and all your household, for you alone I have seen to be righteous before Me in this time how many families were in existence? All must have been Noah’s relatives You shall take with you of every clean animal by sevens, a male and his female; and of the animals that are not clean two, a male and his female;clean in what sense? I thought in the previous chapter we had two of each? also of the birds of the sky, by sevens, male and female, to keep offspring alive on the face of all the earth. For after seven more days seven days to traverse the whole globe from the NH to SH, convince the animals to come, trap the birds and ants, you can fill in the list here you will find an idea on how long and at what cost it would have taken to capture the animals living on the planet at the time, I will send rain on the earth forty days and forty nights how did the sea life survive? was the rain saline in nature? were there any plants left after this many days of rain?; and I will blot out from the face of the land every living thing that I have made.” Noah did according to all that the Lord had commanded him.

Now Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of water came upon the earth. Then Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives with him entered the ark because of the water of the flood. Of clean animals and animals that are not clean and birds and everything that creeps on the ground, there went into the ark to Noah by twos, male and female, as God had commanded Noah. 10 It came about after the seven days, that the water of the flood came upon the earth. 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open, and the floodgates of the sky were opened. 12  The rain fell upon the earth for forty days and forty nights Apart from the repetition of the same event in the six verses, I have a few thoughts; are the other humans dead already? have they just taken a leave of absence? is it remotely possible they couldn’t break the door? Would everyone be so bad in this society that only one family does the right thing?.

13 On the very same day Noah and Shem and Ham and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark, 14 they and every beast after its kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, all sorts of birds. 15 So they went into the ark to Noah, by twos of all flesh in which was the breath of life. 16 Those that entered, male and female of all flesh, entered as God had commanded him; and the Lord closed it behind him.

17 Then the flood came upon the earth for forty days, and the water increased and lifted up the ark, so that it rose above the earth. 18 The water prevailed and increased greatly upon the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 19 The water prevailed more and more upon the earth, so that all the high mountains everywhere under the heavens were covered. 20 The water prevailed fifteen cubits higher, and the mountains were covered. 21  All flesh that moved on the earth perished, birds and cattle and beasts and every swarming thing that swarms upon the earth, and all mankind; 22 of all that was on the dry land, all in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, died. 23 Thus He blotted out every living thing that was upon the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky, and they were blotted out from the earth; and only Noah was left, together with those that were with him in the ark. 24  The water prevailed upon the earth one hundred and fifty days. My friends have asked many questions on the verses above.Where does all the water go? They have at the last verse been in the watertight and airtight ark for 190 days; what lighting system are they using? what is the method of waste disposal they are employing? do they still have food?

Perfume the story of a murderer

Perfume the story of a murderer

Now friends, today we will not talk about the Genesis story. You see last evening the missus (she is a beautiful and lovely damsel, I miss her a lot) was home [she works out of town] so I couldn’t write and we decided that we could watch a movie and settled on Perfume the story of a murderer. If you haven’t watched this movie, I recommend you do. There are very many beautiful scenes, I specifically like the scene of his sentencing. For a brief moment the people felt like they were in paradise and that the messiah had returned. It’s a brilliant movie! I seriously need a bit of that perfume, I could make use of it sometime.

That aside, today I want to take us through a biology lesson with the aim of showing you, dear creationist, there is possibly no way life forms are a result of some Intelligent design as some of you want us to believe. Since I know I make a bad teacher, here you will find a definition of what would be called design (you can agree or disagree) and here you will find examples and descriptions what for purposes of this blog we will call bad design.

I invite you to update the list that has been developed or just to have a good laugh.

We will continue with Genesis later.
