    Troll fails again. Troll tries again. Troll gives self troll points for reposting fail responses. Troll has no real answers for any of the points raised in this thread. But troll must persevere, because someone is wrong on the internet, and Jeebus told troll to endlessly repost until everyone else gives up, which proves troll is RIGHT!

    Fair point. I actually ascribe to this interpretation of the genesis of Genesis (see what I did there?), which would date the story to the early outgrowth of civilization from the Fertile Crescent (e.g. >2000 years ago), but I was talking about the Jesus/bread related stories with regard to the <2000 yrs figure.

    I'm Catholic. First of all early Christians/Catholics did not read Genesis as literal but as allegory. I have a real problem with fundamentalists' interpretations.
    Case in point: The following argumentative quote could have been written yesterday. Instead it was written in late 300AD by Saint Augustine of Hippo. He's chastising what we know call fundamentalist Christians Saint Augustine on Science and Scripture

    The other point is Jesus was a man of his culture and followed his society's precepts. He was not omnipotent. If he was then he wouldn't have been "a man like us in all things but sin" as the verse says.

    Just like acorns are very different from verities of acorn trees, wheat verities aren't created equal. The middle east had at least 8,000 years of hybridizing their strain of wheat. Speculation on my part but that was enough time to minimize the amount of gluten in their strain. Beer was being made in Egypt at that time so yeast was available to make leavened bread. Instead they ate unleavened bread. Maybe that was due to minimal gluten. Today, wheat is grown to increase gluten content.
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

    It was much bigger that most of the pictures you see with boats that look like bathtubs. I think the measurements work out to be around 450 ft long. He only had to have two of each kind of animal so he didn't have a wolf and a husky he had two dogs. Also he didn't have to have two full sized T-rexs' he could have used two babies.

    I think our bodies and our daily requirement's have changed since Jesus walked the earth so bread would probably have had different effects on the body

    Oh, I didn't think of baby T-Rexes. Now the whole thing makes perfect sense

    A lot of hard work for Noah and his staff collecting all those animal specimens, but maybe the animals knew what was going to happen, and came by their own will? Another task for the staff was also to make sure that all the passengers are not eating each other by keeping them separated! Polar bears and seals, snakes and reptiles, tigers and elephants, eagles and rodents, all the insects etc.,etc., not an easy job administrating that boat…

    Oh so two of every single species on earth could fit on the Ark cause it was super big?? Gotcha!

    What about the species of cave fish in Mammoth Cave in KY that are blind, need water to live in, and are found nowhere else in the world? How did they walk to Noah's ark? What about terrestrial plants and fungi? Were there two of those too? If not how did they all get here in the variety we see them in today?
