:/ But my point remains, going after a bible story for factual evidence is silly.
Your taking a religious script and trying to provide factual evidence.
Those two things are contradictory in nature.
Well it kind of happens all of the time when Atheists debate theists..
Theists have their faith and Atheists have their natural logic..
I could see if the subject matter discussed dealt with something completely supernatural that defied human logic,
but in the story of Noah's Ark there is obviously a mix of both, and to Jews and Christians it is a historic event.
I could see if an Atheist was like: "Pfft BS Jesus didn't heal the blind"
That has no historic baring..and isn't explaining the continuation of human beings and animals on the planet earth.
I do agree with your point about "going after the Bible being silly"
In theory if someone is an Atheist..than using anything in the Bible as evidence against itself is pretty retarded.
If an individual finds the Bible to be utter bullshit, than all you can really argue about are inconsistencies, or contradicting passages.
On the other hand, I can understand a Christian debating another Christian about something like Noah's Ark.
I'm not really sure if the Op is religious and falling away from his faith a bit, or just straight Atheist.
