It's fun listening to people argue over stuff (Bible myths) I used to believe. I've heard most of the arguments for believing in Bible myths, but every now and then I hear a good retort against that is so simple, I wonder why I never managed to reason that back when I was still in and believed it all.
Pro flooder vs non flooder (Noah's flood)
Pro flooder is trying to argue that the flood actually happened. Non flooder is using the standard, logical arguments against
Pro flooder resorts to the WTS argument of there are so many stories and legends of floods around the world that this is indeed significant proof of a catastrophic world wide flood.
Non flooder responds (paraphrased): so what? there are dozens, if not hundreds, of legends about Big Foots, Sasquatches, Abominable Snowmen, Loch Ness Monsters, dragons... that doesn't make them real either.
A simple reply, yet it results in bringing the whole flood nonsense down to the exact level where it belongs... with fairy tales and legends.
Maybe not significant to most people, but to those of us raised as JWs, and who accepted the Flood story as historical fact from the Bible, it's pretty tellling just how silly the premise of ever believing such a fanciful story really is... and I actually at one point in my life believed it.
