I said it was BIG. It was like a 3 storey house.
That's small! Relative sizing! In order to save more people and animals, Noah would of had to build a tanker.
Now compare a tanker with a long house. It is like 20x the size of the ark. The ark was tiny.
A three story long house is not big enough to hold many people.
That means that god KNEW in ADVANCE, way way before noah even started to preach about the coming flood that only a few would be saved.
God had no intention of saving many. If he had that intention, he would slaughtered them with a different type of murder.
But, nope, he decides, I'm gonna wipe out half the world, and start all over again.
He knew in advance that only Naoh's family would go in, thereby he made the ark a LIMITED size. .
Plus, Noah could not of built a larg ark as that would of taken forever...and that defeats the whole plan of fast acting mass murder.
How do you know that Noah's family was wicked? It does not say so in the Bible.
Maybe they were already dead. we just dont know.
How do I feel about criminals?
I feel that many can be rehabilitated. Many cannot and should be kept away from society to keep us safe.
I feel that only convicted serial killers should be put to death, as death is their calling. and child rapists too.
Mostly everyone who was killed were just eating and drinking and marrying...sure a few were probably murderers and evil,
but not all of those people that died were truly evil, no way.
The people of the flood in Noah's day were not good people...they were degenerates....like pedophiles and such. God was disgusted with them.
Like God said, they were bad all the time and he had regrets for creating mankind. Even today we see more and more degenrates coming out of the closet. Almost like they don't care if you know.
How nice. Comments like this remind me why I'm so glad I'm no longer an ignorant christian zealot.
(not that all christians are, but, sadly, a few are as ignorant and intolerant as the above poster, Ri).
