image for Myths of the Bible Part 7 One of the old JW's who knocked on my door

Let's get to Noah and his big, huge, enormous, gigantic, supersized bleeding ark.

It baffles me how anyone in their right mind, or indeed, anyone out of their mind, could possible 'believe' this story.

Noah is supposed to have built the vessel. OK, maybe he did. Then he loaded it with 2 of every animal on the planet. Yeah right!

First, did he go around the world taking notes of how many animals would be going on his ark before he drew up the plans? If so, how did he travel, coz there were no planes or fast boats back then.

Secondly, he must have had a helluva lot of food stored on the ark. It must have 'gone off' at some point. Yuck!

I can figure out where he and his lads dumped all the 'waste products' - over the side of the ark, to settle to the bottom of the floodwater, forming sedimentary rocks and eventually turning into new countries. (That's only IF I believed the stupid story in the first place).

I had two sweet ladies knock on my door many years ago. They were JW's and they began discussing the Big Flood and how and, particularly WHY Noah had built the ark etc. etc. etc.

Then they went on to ask me how I felt about all the bad things and evil people in the world (1983). They told me God would be sending another flood (or something) to wipe out all the evil again.

Honestly, I'm not "spoofing" here, I said,

"It's a pity he didn't do the job right in the first place, then we wouldn't have any evil in the world today would we?"

They were speechless. One of them handed me a copy of the "Watchtower" and , if my memory serves me right, a copy of "Awake".

I haven't seen them since.

I expect they are both dead by now. I often wonder if they ever met Jehova. Aah well! Not MY problem.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
