God, the slacker!

Possum#2 walked in, earlier this afternoon, while I was watching some videos on godtube about Noah's Ark. At one point,... P#2 looks at me and says, "God was a slacker."
??
I said, "Why do you say that?"
P#2 says, "Well, if he created all of the animals in one day, why have Noah spend months building an ark? Why couldn't God just destroy everything and start all over again? If God's all powerful, why did he use Noah?"

Very good question!
Then, P#2 pointed out another very astute observation (which I'm sure has been made by other skeptics, but was new to him): "The claim that God only had Noah collect two of each animal isn't even logical. I mean...what did the lion eat? Wouldn't Noah have had to gather gazelles and rhinos for the lions to eat?" P#2 then went through all of the animals that depend on other animals, in the food chain, for sustenance.

My sticking point as a child, with the ark story, was that you'd see pictures of the ark with land animals...but no sea creatures. I can remember asking a nun if that meant that God killed all of the sea creatures. I recall, very distinctly, her saying "Why heavens no! He just let two of each sea creature live in the water...they followed the ark." It was a lame answer then and it's a lame answer now.
I have this mental image of Noah standing on the bow of the Ark, legs akimbo...arms outstreteched, watching two dolphins glide and jump in the bow wake. It's very Titanic. :)

And what about the dinosaurs on the ark?

Okay - every time I say that in my house, my son laughs his head off.

Atheist in a mini van. said...

I've actually encountered some Christians who claim that the Great Flood is what killed the dinosaurs. *rolls eyes* That would be convenient.

BUT- if they were on the ark, I'll bet there were some serious "Rock, Paper,...erm'... Cutting things" (when were scissors invented?) games to see who had to feed the T-Rex.

Martin Wagner said...

Clearly, if an astute child can see through the absurdity of an old myth like Noah's Ark, then that doesn't say anything flattering at all about the intellect of any adult who believes it!

Just like a kid. Honest and straight to the point.

Just wait until they get to the point about there only being one human family on the boat that we all descend from - icky!

Anonymous said...

Genesis 5:32 to Genesis 6:14-21 represents 100 years of Noah's life (500yo to 600yo). Whether he took that century to build the ark and collect all the animals is moot because the event did not happen (unless a Jester God planted evidence to the contrary).

But good on P#2 for applying some brain cells.

Anonymous said...

oops - sorry I meant to add: If God was so powerful, why didn't he just wipe out the wicked people, rather than all those innocent plants, animals and new-born human babies?

Sounds pretty incompetent to me...

But of course he made up for it with a rainbow to remind himself never to do it again (even fairy-tales are more believable than this...)

elianara said...

My Sunday School teacher once explained that for those days they spent in the Ark, God made the carnivorous animals herbivorous. That way all the animals ate the same food, and no-one needed to be killed.

Then I started asking how they could transport that much food in the Ark, and a whole bunch of other questions, and I found that my teacher didn't know, or couldn't come up with any good answer.

I was a skeptic already at that age.

sam said...

When I was a kid in Sunday school, one of my Sunday school teachers told me that dinosaurs were on the ark.

But wait! What about the fact that a T-Rexs' (and presumably many other dinosaurs and animals) were carnivores?

The answer was simple, all dinosaurs were vegetarians before the flood!

alisonM said...

I read on one flood explanation site that God put all the animals into hibernation, and that Noah brought dinosaur EGGS, not actual dinosaurs onto the ark (I guess he got into trouble choosing both genders of eggs, and that's why the dinosaurs really died out, eh?)The other thing nobody seems to be able to explain is how the animals from other continents got to Noah and then back after the flood. They're also a little hazy on how marine creatures survived the mixing of salt and freshwater.

Godless Geek said...

The carnivore observation, and several others were made by Joe Rogan in his outstanding "Telling the Noah's Ark story to a retarded 8 year-old" bit. If you haven't seen it, it's a definite watch. I've seen it more times than I can count, but it still cracks me up every time.

BTW, this is definitely NSFW.

I remember reading the Noah's Ark story from a Children's Bible. My six year old son looked at me and said, "Are you kidding me?"

Virginia aka Ginny said...

Thanks for the link godless geek...Joe did a great job!

I can't get over the fact that some people believe in Noah's Ark. I'll never forget the first time I actually came face to face with my first bible literalist. I thought they were completely crazy for believing that stuff and told them so. They agreed that it seemed crazy but they were still going to believe it no matter what because it was in the bible and was "God's" word. So sad.

Oh. Well...rainbows make it all better. ;) THAT'S IT!! Forget sending bombs and troops to Iraq. We just need to send rainbows.


The other thing nobody seems to be able to explain is how the animals from other continents got to Noah and then back after the flood.
Yeah...I think it's important to note that the Bible says "all of the animals found Noah". Not that Noah went out and gathered them or selected them. I wonder how long it took the Brazillian rain forest turtles to get to Noah? The penguins must've loved the desert.

I remember reading the Noah's Ark story from a Children's Bible. My six year old son looked at me and said, "Are you kidding me?"

Yeah. It's funny how sharp kids can be. We went to Sea World (in San Diego) last year and P#3 was ALL ABOUT the dolphins. So, we read her all of these dolphin books, right? Then, some family friends gave her this book about Noah's Ark (it was innocent, they didn't know I was an atheist). There was a page that showed a dolphin and a whale trailing the ark. P#3 looked at it and said, "But... if it rained and rained and rained, the water would be wrong for the dolphins. Rain isn't salty." Our "clever" (insert irritated sound here) friend said, "Oh...but the rain is God's tears and God's tears ARE salty, just like yours!"

(*$&)!(@*&#$!)@(*#&

Godless Geek, that was hysterical.

I love how the "documenter" was still BEAMING when Joe was done roasting him. I was waiting for Joe to go, "DUDE! You're not even as bright as the eight year old, retarded kid!"

Saurian200 said...

Rain isn't salty." Our "clever" (insert irritated sound here) friend said, "Oh...but the rain is God's tears and God's tears ARE salty, just like yours!"

Which brings me to a complaint I've had about the Noah's ark story for a long time. Was the world covered by salt water or fresh water?

If it's salt water like the friend said then God would have just killed off a whole lot of fresh water aquatic animals. Did the ark have an aquarium? How did noah manage that?

If it was fresh water, same problem. God would have killed off a good portion of the ocean. I can just imagine Noah heaving two blue whales onto the ark and trying to keep them wet untill the oceans went back to normal. Did God make all the aquatic animals salt water or fresh water?

And, speaking of food, what about the plants? Everyone talks about all that Noah did to save the animals, but what about the plants, the fungi, or the sigle celled organisms. Does anyone think they all could have survived suddenly having to live underwater.

Plants can die when you overwater them. Well, I think dumping an ocean on them would do the trick.

Did God make even more exceptions? If so this plan seems to have so many exceptions. If God has to interfere this much to make the plan work he should have just gone with another plan. He is supposed to be all knowing, right. Is this really the best he can do?

Did he just bring all the plants, fungi, etc. back afterwards? If he had to recreate that much, why not just recreate the whole planet?

I guess I should stop ranting now. The worst part is I still have even more problems with the story.

Natasha Yar-Routh said...

God seems to have a thing for incest doesn’t he? The first generation after Adam and Eve would have been brother/sister incest and at the minimum first cousins the next generation. Same thing after the flood, lots of very close relatives having children. Which brings up the point that there had to be LOTS of sex for the world to be repopulated that quickly. I wonder what theologians have to say about God the voyeur?

Russ said...

PMomma,

Not only is God a slacker, but like most slackers, he's pretty stupid, too.

If God wasn't so dumb he could have told his kids, "Hey, slavery is wrong." Think of all the misery God's ignorance on that one cost us all.

If God wasn't so dumb, he could have told his kids, "There are these little things that can cause disease called germs. Wash your hands before you eat." I'll bet lots of people have died from horrible infections because of that little omission.

If God wasn't so dumb, he could have said, "Don't ever kill someone and say you're doing it for me." Wonder what the body count is from leaving out that tidbit.

Not saying things that need to be said, can get people hurt sometimes.

Queen Pickle said...

You know, this ark story, if taken at face value, simply reinforces evolution. Noah takes TWO of each animal, yet there are many varities of EVERY animal, each adapted to their specific location.

You got some smart possums there, PM!

Jusgottastamp said...

You know my Bible-view, so I hope you take this in the nature it's intended...something to think on...however, the Bible does say this: Gen 6:21 "You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them."

I always thought (and I guess taught) that this meant God told Noah to bring any extra animals if needed to feed the food chain. Also, the animals would be having babies, so that would be more food. I thought it said something out taking extras of the sacrificial animals, but can't remember where that came from. May have been something just taught. *shrugs*

Atheist in a mini van. said...

however, the Bible does say this: Gen 6:21 "You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them."

Do you really think this would've been possible? There are millions of species that would've been on the ark (including, as Christians are now suggesting: dinosaurs). The ark was at sea for forty days and forty nights (if we're going to take the Bible literally). The San Deigo zoo goes through THOUSANDS of pounds of food every day...and that's just for a a few hundred animals. Where did Noah store HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of pounds of food on the ark? And, since some species need to eat fresh leaves, berries, bark, kill,... how did he keep the plants growing and the animals fresh for eating? Did he also have a garden on the ark? What about silk worms,...did he have their special plants? How?
Also, it takes HUNDREDS of people to run the San Diego Zoo and feed only those animals...how did EIGHT people feed MILLIONS of animals on the ark for forty days and forty nights?


Also, the animals would be having babies, so that would be more food.
?? Think about what you just said here. The only way that the animals would've been having babies, in that exact forty day period, is if the flood occured at the peak of their gestations. So, now not only do we have one of each species, but we have pregnant animals of each species and all of them are about due? Wow...this is becoming even more unlikely. Did the alligators gather up their eggs in a nap sack and toe them across the oceans so that they could hatch on the ark?

Russ said...

PMomma,

For Heaven's sake, now, you're just being nitpicky. Next, you'll start questioning how Noah and his family all became the absolute best zoologists and botanists the world will ever know. Why just think of all things they knew that we do not know to this day.

Anyone with a lick of sense has to acknowledge that there are boatloads (go ahead, yuck it up, I take 'em when I can get 'em) of species that are unknown to modern science, but, Mr. Noah's family knew all there was to know about them: life cycle, dietary needs, mating habits, circadian rhythms, habitat requirements, you know, everything.

The capabilities of every modern zoologist pale by comparison to Ark-Boy's clan. Dawkins, amateur. Gould, second-rate. E. O. Wilson, a wannabe.

Then, too, I suppose you'll want to dig into how they kept flowering plants alive on the Ark, to support the thousands and thousands of species of those creepy crawly things that depend on flowering plants as their sole food source. For instance, some species of moths and orchids have coevolved so the living orchid is required by the moths for their only food source. Do you know how hard it is to keep an orchid alive for one week, let alone, 5.7142857142857142857142857142857 (hey, look, 40/7 is a repeating decimal, don't tell the creationists) weeks. Keeping orchids is hard.

Hey, I'll bet you'll raise a stink about carnivorous plants needin' to be on the boat, too, eh? (this nugget from my fourteen year old daughter, Kayleigh)

So, guess what, Mr. Noah's floating zoo also had to be the largest botanical garden ever assembled and all them Noah's had to be the best botanists ever, too. Lucky for us Noah was over six hundred, because everybody knows, botanists don't reach full bloom until after five hundred.

Maybe that's what they did with all that poop, you know, fertilized the plants. Actually, I prefer that fertilizer idea cuz I get kinda barfy thinking about eight people hauling all that crap up top to chuck overboard. What a logistical nightmare. Well, better Noah than me.

If God had dumped that whole Ark thing on me, with my shipbuilding, zoological, and botanical skills being what they are, today's flora and fauna would be three species: people, philodendrons, and dogs; that's it. Thank God for Noah.

What's more, as far as anyone can tell, this incredible store of data was kept completely in their heads. No computers, no databases ... pretty amazin', huh? Them Bible types was impressive.

You're a bitch! A complete and total manipulative bitch.

Well, if some random person that no one knows anything about says it, then it must be true! I mean after all look at this person's credentials. They are completely beyond questioning.

Oh, wait ...

Look, Mr. Anonymous, can I call you Mr. A? All right Mr. A, even though I doubt you're actually still paying attention, here's some advice. Maybe others will find it usefull.

If the absolute only way you can defend your position is calling others names, then you can be sure that your position is absolutely worthless. Because a position that has any merit can be rationally defended. And calling someone names is not a rational defense of anything.

To rationally defend a position you must support it. Take your accusation for instince. Where is the support that P-Momma is a manipulative bitch? Did you think anyone would beleive it just because you said it?

Although that might be giving you too much credit. Perhaps, and this is just a thought, but perhaps you aren't trying to convince anyone of anything and just wanted to engage in some childish name calling. (No offence to the Possums who I beleive are mature enough not to act like this. I give them more credit than that.)

If that was your intent then I want you to sit down for a while and think long and hard about what that says about your character. Though, I doubt very much you will. Still it's a good excercise to every now and then stop and examine your actions to see what they say about you and what kind of messages your sending others.

I want to thank everyone for their time and patience.

So Mr(s). A, I'm sorry.

See basic civility really isn't that hard. Or, perhaps that's uncivil of me to say that.

"Possummomma" has brought havoc and drama to a place that I held sacred. She came into a place called SCS two years ago and made friends. She seemed to be a nice Christian woman who was raising four kids and struggling with health problems. We enveloped her with love. We realized she was never a nice Christian lady. She is an atheist. She's not happy with saving her blasphemy and nonsense for this blog. O no. She started posting blasphemy and hurtful information on a forum called current events. I don't think atheism or religion is a current event. Do you? So much for polite discussion between friendly stampers. After all we gave her, she turned on us. There are people who sent her sermons at a great cost to them. She refuses to see truth. God is real. You do not have to believe in him to suffer his wrath. God wants to love possummomma and wants to show her that love with friendship and good friends. She chooses to bash Christians here. That's manipulative and bitchy. I'm tired of people giving her a pass because she's sick. Just wait. In a year she'll realize God really loves her and she loves him and she'll drop you guys.

I have never bought into the whole Noah thing. Just hearing that this guy was 600+ years old... I mean come on, that should be a dead give away. I think I could believe in Paul Bunyan and his blue Ox before I could ever believe the Arc story.

Besides, if you had to live on a boat with all of your family in tow and hundreds (or millions) of stank ass animals, I would either a. kill myself or b. be throwin' family members overboard or c. using THEM to feed the carniverous animals!

NCL STAMPER, it seems that you and your poor (so you feel) betrayed stamping buddies are the only ones that keep bringing up Pmommas health. What you are trying to do is guilt her, and she has nothing to feel guilty about. No one here is giving her a pass. If the day were to ever come that she "finds god", then so be it. Speaking for myself, I would not feel betrayed feel like she turned her back on her atheist friends.

You need something else to focus on. It's not very christian of you to be calling people a bitch is it?

I didn't enter SCS with any intention of creating "havoc" and/or "drama". In fact,... I was never warned or banned for any unkind or out-of-line behavior. I did, however, make many friends...and some of them read this blog.

She seemed to be a nice Christian woman who was raising four kids and struggling with health problems. We enveloped her with love. We realized she was never a nice Christian lady.
Interesting...because I never claimed to be a Christian. Ever. By the time I arrived at SCS, I was- at best- an agnostic with atheist leanings. You, and others, saw what you wanted to see. And, when it no longer fit your paradigm, YOU twisted it and MANIPULATED your perception of me until it was acceptable to spew hatred. I am the same person I was two years ago, with regard to SCS.

She is an atheist.
Uh. Yeah. And??

She's not happy with saving her blasphemy and nonsense for this blog. O no. She started posting blasphemy and hurtful information on a forum called current events.
Blasphemy and nonsense, huh? Well,...you've got me on the blasphemy. I did challenge some of your ideas. I did question your God. I did ask you to think. Nonsense? I think that is in the eye of the beholder.

I don't think atheism or religion is a current event. Do you?
I disagree. You, and your posse, use God in almost every political or cultural argument that is relevant to current events. If you don't think religion is a current event, then stop making it one. Keep your theology off my biology... and all of those other cute, atheist sayings!

So much for polite discussion between friendly stampers.
Oh...you were trying to be polite?? Telling anyone who doesn't agree with you that they are going to hell is polite? Wow! I want to see whatever Emily Post column you've been reading.

After all we gave her, she turned on us. There are people who sent her sermons at a great cost to them.
Who's this nebulous "we" you speak of? And, can you clarify what YOU gave me?

She refuses to see truth. God is real. You do not have to believe in him to suffer his wrath. God wants to love possummomma and wants to show her that love with friendship and good friends.

Sorry. All I can do is chuckle at this.

I'm so surprised to see that a self-admitted NCL (Nice Christian Lady) held a stamping forum "sacred." *gasp*

If you had a clue about SCS, you would know that religion IS A HOT TOPIC and that's why it's in Current Events. Do you have a clue why CE was created? Of course not. It was created because people didn't want to see "hot topics" in Everyday Chit Chat. Honest to pete, if you read the damn forum, you'd realize that if it didn't belong there, it would have been stopped or moved almost two years ago when the first religion topic was brought up.

But your lack of thinking and knowledge and logic doesn't surprise me. Nor does your arrogance or despicable attitude.

I'm sure Pmomma is just thrilled to know that your god that she doesn't believe in wants to love her.

What *I* have seen on SCS is the plotting by NCLs to be mean and nasty, the ganging up, and here - let me give you a mirror. YOU are the one who is bashing people, who turned on people, and who is manipulative and bitchy.

And nobody gets a pass cos they're sick. Intelligent people don't need a pass.

And I thought the Christian God was to do the judging. Isn't it amazing how many NCLs are doing so much judging of their own? I sure hope your god doesn't notice. Oops, he's all-knowing, he might read your black heart!

Saurian200 said...

NCL Stamper,

Please see my above post to Anonymous. (Assuming, of course, that you aren't anonymous.) I see in your post a similar problem as anonymous' post. That problem is any kind of lack of support.

You make a lot of accusations but don't back any of them up. Maybe you're right. But, that is virtually impossible to figure out from your post. You talk about some forums, how about a link or two, or at least some URL's so we can see these forums for oursleves. (Or, is a stamping forum for Christians only?)

You say she claimed to be a nice Christian. Are you sure she actually claimed that? I find that many Christians have a habit of assuming others are Christians as well. Even when such assuptions are not justified. If she ever actually claimed to be a Christian then please provide a link to the post or thread where she made the claim so we can verify your accusation. If she never claimed to be a Christian, then the fault is your own for assuming so.

Also, you say she was spreading hurtful and blasphemous messages. Please provide some examples of these messages. If the problem was so widespead that it caused "chaos" and "havoc" then finding a few examples should be easy.

Also, if the forums were about stamp collecting and current events the I fail to see why "blasphemous" messages would not be allowed. Presumably there are other non-Christians on those forums. Do you think your religion should always dictate what others can say? Even of they are not of yor religion.

I think you should take this to heart, DON"T EXPECT PEOPLE TO BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU SAY JUST BECAUSE YOU SAY IT. You actually have to defend your statements. That is not because we are being mean or anti-christian or anything. It is because people are falliable they make mistakes and they lie.

Before you get offended about me saying you might be lying, rember neither I nor most of the people here know you. We don't know if your the type of person who would do such a thing or not. So, we have to consider it a possibility untill you show us other wise. To just trust some random stranger blindly would be foolish.

Or to put everything I wrote more bluntly, put up or shut up.

Have a nice day.

The ark was at sea for forty days and forty nights (if we're going to take the Bible literally).
Actually, it's worse than that. According to the story, it rained for 40 days -- but the water took a whole year to subside so that the Ark could land.

Anonymous has suggested for our consideration the hypothesis, "Possummomma, you're a bitch!" I, however, do not think this is as elevated a concept as a hypothesis since no evidence was offered to support it. It might be a hunch, it might be a guess, but hypothesis? I don't think so. Therefore, I would like to propose the counter hypothesis, "Possummomma, you're not a bitch!" and see if we can provide some evidence.

The emerging zoological subdisciplines of Bitchiology, and Bitch Linguistics offer us a solid foundation from which to launch our inquiry.

First, proper use of human language including but not limited to syntax. Note the following sample of quotes from Possummomma, taken from this blog, together with their relevance to this study.

"Is that a Pinochio reference?"
Pinocchio, a human cultural reference. Very un-bitch like.

"I'm not a computer geek."
Self-identification. Draws distinction between self and geek. This demonstrates a strong anti-bitchiosity factor.

"No need for an apology."
As per the conclusion of, "Empathy's Implication of Unbitchliness" Nature, 2006, Vol. 6, pg 85, by Ima Wanker and U. R. Tooh, the intensity of this clearly empathetic linguistic construct gives us a 97 percent correlation of Unbitchliness on the Wanker and Tooh scale.

"Now that it's here... it's a bit intimidating."
Time factor and placing oneself in the present. Counter-bitchitudliness coefficient does not support the aforementioned hunch of Is-a-bitch.

"Sorry- I'm a touch sensitive at this point."
Internal state assessment. We don't know exactly what "point" she was talking about, but from "Collected Tables of Bitches, Bitching and Bitchiness", pg 973, internal state assessment gives a very negative BITCH exponent.

"I think that may be the funniest thing you've ever said." Humor detection. In his groundbreaking work, "Probabilities of Humor in Aggregated Bitch Populations" R. U. Joe King notes, "Female canines ain't that funny, really."

"The tooth fairy doesn't fucking exist, assmunch!" Compound words. Distinguishes imagination from reality. Command of expletive creation. According to "Multidimensional Bitch Analysis" by Hong Kong ethologist Shesin Heat, these three traits are never observed in the base bitch profile.

"Yeah, but the orgies were BYOL...bring your own lube." Context correct creation of acronyms. "Omnibitch Abstractions: Sub-Bitch Language of the Fourth Order" tells us, "Bitch-fabricated acronyms appear to be purely coincidental. Therefore, for us in the trenches the Holy Grail of irrefutable non-bitch subspecies identification would, of course, be the context-correct acronym."

By itself, this compilation provides us with overwhelming support for the hypothesis, "Possummomma, you're not a bitch!"

If we then couple this with specific observed omissions - for example, Possummomma has never mentioned sniffing anyone in the ... well, she uses language to communicate; and, she has never once complained of flea or tick infestations, talked of gnawing bones or shoes, or having a hankering after roadkill, fresh or otherwise - then, we have come as close to proving our hypothesis as any dedicated researchers can hope to be.

"Possummomma, you're not a bitch!" QED

River: "So we'll integrate non-progressional evolution theory with God's creation of Eden. Eleven inherent metaphoric parallels already there. Eleven. Important number. Prime number. One goes into the house of eleven eleven times, but always comes out one. Noah's ark is a problem."
