My vote for the most ridiculous story in the good book...

Noah and his famous boat. One must suspend all forms of logic while regurgitating this load of crap.

    Of course the story is ridiculous. It was never meant to be taken literally. So many people of the time new the actual background story that they appreciated the new twist. And by the way – there were only seven people on the ark. Have you ever considered that the animals that sailed were the Zodiac: the crab, the bull, the scorpion? Have you considered that the seven people were the planets? The correct dimensions were 30 x 50 x 300. The diagonal of the 30 by 50 side is? You will have to use your grey matter to figure that out and then you can use it some more to figure out this is a direct reference to…….? Good Atheist! It refers to something real!!!

  2. I am glad to hear that you don’t take the Bible literally. I suspect that you are in the minority, despite the tradition of “God’s word” and infallibility, and such. However, it appears that you are simply replacing the Bible myth of Noah and the great flood….with a myth of another flavor.

    Instead of asking questions about the Zodiac, and inferring that there are only 7 planets, will you please cut to the chase?

    The Bible refers to your dimensions in units of cubits, which are approximately eighteen inches per cubit, which thereby convert to approximately what my post depicted. The diagonal of your query would be 58.31 cubits, which is roughly 87.46 feet. I am failing to use the proper amount of grey matter to understand exactly what you think you are pointing to.

    Thank you for your comment. I look forward to your response.

  3. I must say…I didn’t pay much attention to your moniker, before replying to your post. You appear to have a fascination with enormous make believe floods. Odd.

    In your opinion, are any of the stories (of great deluges) true? Gilgamesh predates the Bible by some 2500 years.

      Gilgemesh is the previous version to the Noah’s ark story. In between there are several other versions of the story. I have no particular fascination with God or the flood. I simply like numbers.

      Since there is supposedly a “secret” hidden in the Torah and I was bored, and recovering from a major, major illness. No one thought I was being odd in asking for the bible. I had just paid my bills so my calculator was handy. (Oddly, enough people want you to pay your bills when you are really ill.) I started playing with those odd ages of the generations of Adam, Noah lived to be 950 years old etc. and thought I would get bored after an hour. Low and behold! Those sneeky old great grandpas of ours did hide something in the Torah. One year plus, worn through the batteries on the calculator, I am still astounded and calculating. Their IQ’s must have been off the chart to think this up and people are still passing the story on and on and on….

      Use the original values in the Noah’s Ark story given in cubits. They are not really talking about a length. They only wanted to convey these particular numbers in the form of a cube: 30, 50 and 300.The correctly calculated number is 58.3, and the other two diagonals are 92,500, and 301.5. The diagonal of the cube is 93400 or 17.5 x 17.5 x 17.5 x 17.5. If you play with these numbers long enough you realize that 301 must refer to a measurement system using 300 as a base length. For example: the metric system uses 40,000 meters as the circumference of the Earth. If you spend way too much time doing this, the appearance of 17.5 is a confirmation of other calculations. The 92,500 you will guess momentarily.

      To help you understand 58.3 think of the biblical verse from Genesis 6:3, “My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh; yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.” Think about it this way. If one sits in a chair and never moves for an entire life of 120 years one will travel, 120 x 584,000,000 miles or 70,000,000,000 miles around the Sun. The 7 repeats the idea of the creation of the world in 7 days. Which is actually a reference to……

      Sorry, I am running on.
