Whatever language helps stroke your ego and makes you feel strong and brave, you are welcome to use it.
I only point out that if you read the story, as written, there are fewer problems.
I've read the story as written. It makes about as much sense as a four year olds excuse as to why there are cookies missing.
The language I am using doesn't stroke my ego one fucking bit. It merely informs me. That language is science, which tells us stuff, like how tall the frickin' mountains were 6,000 and 16,00 and 26,00 and 36,000 years ago. Maybe not to the foot, but far more in the ballpark than anything you can make up.
There is no evidence whatsoever that there was a flood other than your silly story. There is no corroborating evidence, there is no part of the flood story that matches any of dozens of the sciences. If you are one of those that believes the dinosaurs were wiped out by the flood, why is it that the same older species are ALWAYS found in older rock than the newer species. I mean every frickin' time. All you theists would have to do is go out and find a Triceritops buried shallower than a Diplodocus, and wham, you've disproven geology and evolution and thrown the whole of science into question. But you can't do that, can you?
There have been huge floods on this planet. Huge by human standards. But not by planetary standards. What is now the Black sea was once dry, and flooded when that area, which was under sea level, became unundated after the earth dam that separated it from the Mediterranean broke. Where I live in Montana used to be under water. It was flooded when glacial ice blocked the river that drained this region and when that dam broke (eight times over a few thousand years) it washed house sized boulders out of Montana and into Washington. And left huge, huge (the largest in the world) gravel bars in the world. And by biblical/global standards, those gravel bars would have to be tiny. Where are your biblical flood caused gravel bars?
We who realize that the flood and other biblical stories are bull have a distinct advantage over you. Facts. Evidence. Stuff like that. We have the ability to accurately predict what will be found in any given geologic area based on known geologic history. We are learning to parse the genetic code and modify/repair/reinvent life itself. In the bible some folks, just a few generations after the end of the flood, tried building a tower to heaven, and they were punished by your god by being given different languages and sent to different parts of the world. We have skyscrapers all over the world that go much higher. We have people traveling in orbit around our planet that have not pissed off your god. We are able to send devices to Mars and beyond. We can do stuff that is impressive by any measure. Bible people can only manage to impress each other.
While you might think that "Ummm, it must be true because it is in the bible." looks really good on a t-shirt, the rest of us prefer Feynmann diagrams and E=mc2
. Because we can actually do stuff with our choice. Without having to make up excuses every time we are challenged by anonymous folks on the Internet.
Your standards for truth are low, your thirst for knowledge is non-existent and your desire to do anything useful in this world (not counting oppress) disappeared with the unicorns. I'd try to keep that quiet if I were you.
There, that stroked my ego. Or at least I feel a lot better now. Excuse me while I go smug myself.
