On the heels of Genesis 1-3, it felt like one of those movies you watch where every other scene you say to yourself (or maybe outloud) “yea right.” When I find myself saying that during a movie, I remind myself I have to get past that point and just realize that the movie is not realistic and that if it was, it wouldn’t be that same movie. The same is true with the bible, so far in my experience. Genesis 1-3 was nothing but a compilation of ‘yea rights’ and it took serious effort to continue reading a book that is written like a tall tale yet millions of people live their lives by. Genesis 4-10 was more of the same. Yea right. Let me start with the ages of the characters. Noah was 900 years old, really? hmm. God was so mad at Cain and Abel that he cast them aside and sent Noah out to build an ark and put two of everything in it and start mankind over again? Let me get this straight. Here we are in the year 2011. Scientists have not discovered all the species in the world yet (last time I checked we were at about 70%, is that right?) yet somehow Noah got two of EVERYTHING onto his boat? What did they eat? how did they go to the bathroom? How did he load undiscovered species onto his boat? What happened to the food chain while they were on the boat? Didn’t the snakes eat the rabbits? Didn’t the wolves eat the deer? Do people really believe this stuff or is there some kind of story they tell themselves to make it makes sense? There is no way that this really happened. It’s not possible especially of a 900 year old man. If you can make it make sense to me, I invite you to… please…somebody….
