Could Noah’s family have populated the earth?


Creationists insist Noah’s family populated the earth. Research shows this would not have been possible yet they still yap that the tale is fact.

    i believed hovind and ham for along time too. at that point, i wasn’t interested in anything that didn’t confirm my already held belief that i ‘knew’ to be true ™. it wasn’t till i began to see the bible as a man made and human constructed and edited set of myths that i was even able to ask those questions.
    to misuse a bible quote, ‘the axe’ had to be ‘laid to the root’ before the individual branches of the tree became suspect.

  2. They could not have populated the whole Earth, but, somehow, they’re responsible for populating much of the US Bible belt area. The evidence is in the number of large forehead-ed, buck-tooth, inbred bible thumping idjits that make up the indigenous population there. It’s a scary primeval part of the world where children are abducted and turned into bible thumpin’ idjits and at least two of every kind of animal is an Evangelical christian. Stay away from it.

    One would wonder whether a supposedly omnipotent god, couldn’t god get rid of all human and simply create man again from scratch.

    The Patriarchs and their immediate family were the only ones counted as people, their slaves (man/maid-servants) were irrelevant, so it is possible that Noah and his horny sons worked they way through the parking lot, repopulating their ‘turf’ aka the earth. Just sayin.

      lex this could be it. Did they have a second boat for their slaves? Or they all just fitted in with the cows and lions

        Fact is, while they were ‘seeding’ their turf great kingdoms existed in Asia, Africa and elsewhere, but for some strange reason christians have erased them from history. The argument is comical but tiresome. Instead of attacking christians maybe atheists need to grow a pair and finally challenge (directly) the people who gave the world this ‘superiority’ B.S. :The Jews. Fear of ‘the label’ that follows is a powerful deterrent. Nuff said.

    At least the grandkids of Noah had cousins. They should be grateful for such a diverse gene pool. The children of Adam and Eve only had siblings.

  7. Let’s see… Noah was the last of the antediluvian patriarchs who lived until the age of 950. He and his family were allowed to continue their lineage after God had decided to kill off the rest of mankind because he deemed it as too evil. In other words, God creates Man, doesn’t like what he created and then destroys his creation all save one family. Afterwards, Noah became a drunkard upon his son Ham seeing his naked genitalia in bed.

    As a writer of fiction, I think this story is GREAT! It’s a combination of Shakespearean tragedy and apocalyptic science fiction. I loved reading it as a child.

    But, it’s still fiction. Yet, sometimes good fiction, myths and legends can contain a kernel of truth if one digs deep enough into them. Curiously, great flood myths are not limited to the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam). Most verbal and written histories from ancient cultures around the world include similar stories. Coincidentally or not, scientific evidence reveals that sea levels rose at least 200 feet (60 meters) at the end of the last ice age some 10,000-12,000 years ago; and, over the last 20,000+ years sea levels have risen some 400 feet (120 meters).

    • I recently watched the movie “Noah” with Russell Crow and found it quite entertaining. It’s sort of like Lord of the Rings meets the babble.

      • Hmm, I tend to avoid the newer biblical theme movies because they’re usually just Christian propaganda (e.g. Mel Gibson’s). Is “Noah” worth seeing?

        • It is. It’s not a propaganda movie. It’s directed by an atheist, at least I think he’s an atheist, named Darren Aronofsky who directed “Black Swan” with Natalie Portman. She won best actress for that I think. I saw “Noah” because christians were screaming about how evil and inaccurate it was to the REAL story from the Bible. It’s like a sensible person made a fantasy/mythological movie based on a wild Bible story rather than on a story about Zeus. It’s a fantasy and not a preachy film. I hate those. Well, I do love “Last Temptation of Christ”, but that’s a Scorsese film, and christians protested it too. Also, I didn’t find it preachy. There are some good performances in “Noah”, and these cool lookin’ rock angel monsters that help Noah build the Ark. Also, Anthony Hopkins is in it as an eccentric, 1000 year old dude from the Bible who’s name I forget. Can’t go wrong there. Not a great film, but fun. Shows what you can do with Bible stories when you make movies out them that are pure fantasy. You know, what the Bible really is. I was hoping Ridley Scott’s Moses movie that came out a few years ago, “Exodus” would be a cool fantasy pic, but it just sucked. Anyway, sorry for rambling.

        Russell Crowe said that he played Noah as a type of psychopath on the basis that he must of been that type of character to leave all the other people to drown.

      Maybe the mistake we did was to take fiction/ myth for fact and we have been killing each other for the true version

    I really value the Noah story as it provides almost certain evidence that the bible is not a true historical record of the past. It is a great go to story if ever I am twinged by the doubt, ‘‘what if I am wrong?
