    Smiddy - lots of stuff doesn't make sense.

    The animals will stop eating each other because the earth will be filled with the knowledge of jah... Wait, so animals eating escort is because of human sin? Or maybe the animals shined by forgetting about jah? What about when Israel was being good and was filled with the knowledge, did they not eat escort then?

    Does Satan control the abilities of animals to eat and digest each other? Including the shape/size of their teeth? And why only some animals eat meat and act violently? Do the plant eaters have that knowledge of god? If so, that would mean its genetic apparently... Which is a bit racist (specesist just doesn't have the same ring)

    And don't forget, you are the clay which cannot resist the potter, he is the potter yet when there is a defect in you, it's your fault Mr. Clay.

    Eyeusedtobadub- they say he preached but there is only one line in the bible touching on that... "was a preacher of righteousness".... That could mean all sorts of things.. It doesn't mean, at face value, that he preached about the boat or rain or the end.... Or anything specific..

    Hi Roboto, You asked: “So how long you figure we got before the machines reset us?

    I don’t think humanity would survive long breathing CO2 (we pumped 39.8 billion tons of CO2 into the air, just in 2013 alone) as air is massively being polluted daily. Let it have its natural run—which means when all humans return to their real home, it is time for God Father to renew what has become decadent in line with what we find in the nature.

    Situation could be precipitated with our dear President Trump. "You can't manage what you don't measure. The adage is especially relevant for climate-warming greenhouse gases, which are crucial to manage—and challenging to measure. In recent years, though, satellite and aircraft instruments have begun monitoring carbon dioxide and methane remotely, and NASA's Carbon Monitoring System (CMS), a $10-million-a-year research line, has helped stitch together observations of sources and sinks into high-resolution models of the planet's flows of carbon. Now, President Donald Trump's administration has quietly killed the CMS, Science has learned."

    The morning Earthly news June 11 3000B.C. A family of 8 claimed to be the only survivors of the northern part of our empire. They told our reporter, " they were amazed how quickly the earth became populated, humans and animals". They told our reporter that this was the first time they touch dry land in a year, and asked how did he survive the flood? The reporter told Mr. Noah, we had heavy rain last year around this time but no flood in our area. Mr Noah made a few unheard of words as he and the family walked off into the sunset. His last words, "I put up with all that crap for one year and for nothing".

    Well James I guess that's one way to look at it..I mean at least he got to spend a whole year with cuddly penguins.

    That and he had 7 other ppl who he could get to clean up all the dung and such..I mean, that's the only reason they were spared. After all HE was the righteous one, why should he be the dung-slinger?

    they claim that everyone that was not a part of our earthly organization, were the ones that died in Noah's day.

    No-one has yet stated the obvious, that whatever scribe sat down and summarised the Jewish folk-tales, (that have become the christian accepted version of the flood story). was using the original flood story as a template.

    How do we know that?

    Simply from the existence of an older written history!

    If any Christian is willing to challenge his/her beliefs, they will find this older flood story insightful and informative.

    You have all the plot devices that the Jewish scribe used in his Genesis account.

    A god bent on destruction, but willing to save some. A life-saving vessel, animals going in two by two**.

    This earlier version is discussed in this post from Bible History Daily, published by the Biblical Archaeological Society, read more at:

    Of course, in the end we realise that both versions are the work of human imagination, just as much as any space flick which imagines alien monsters threatening humans.

    ... And, if you have time, watch this video, of a lecture by a British Museum scholar (given as a lecture to The Oriental Institute), where the speaker provides a lot more detail.
