You do have to have a degree of sympathy for the bible cradling religious folk today. Back in history it would have been much easier to believe in a God who created the universe and everything in it and is sat down somewhere weeding out the sinners and helping American athletes win at the Olympics.
As we progressed, the Copernicus and Darwin crowd gouged huge chunks out of the religious argument so now all the modern day believers have is a vain attempt to reinterpret the Bible and say actually, we never actually meant there was a Garden of Eden or men begetting children aged 864, it was all an analogy.
Weak argument i agree but occasionally they start jangling their rosary beads all excitedly because finally, they may have some evidence that it isn't all a load of nonsense.
This has happened once again this week with the announcement by a group of Christians that they were 99.9 percent sure they had found Noah's Ark.
In the story, God observed, in a kind and caring way obviously, that the earth was corrupted with violence and decided to destroy all life upon it. He chose the 600 year old Noah to build an ark and gather up the required animals before he unleashed death and destruction on the planet. Lovingly because God is love remember.
God decreed that 'the length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.
A cubit is the distance between an adults elbow and tip of the finger, generally 18-inches. This means that the ark would have been 450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high. Must have been pretty cramped for two of every unclean animal and 7 of every clean sort and all the food needed for 40 days and nights.
It turns out that like so many Ark discoveries before it, this particular find was a hoax but keep the faith religious types because one day, somebody may find that first scrap of evidence that backs up your argument.
