If you consider the region it most likely was referencing the pomegranate.

It's not unreasonable to believe there are many translation errors in the bible, considering the vast amount of times it has been translated. Not that I'm anti-bible or whatever just a statement.
Maybe God really said, "Get 2 of the baller animal Noah" not every species.
And it's possible it was all metaphorical but the catholic church when they were omitting sections was like, "Ehh, maybe we'll take this part out"

This is the biggest reason why I can't take the Bible (among other holy books) seriously. Not only has it had many books arbitrarily removed or added to it en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biblical_apocrypha www.catholiceducation.org/en/culture/catholic-contributions/the-missing-books-of-the-bible.html , but so much of the shit has been lost through translation that it's now the biggest game of telephone in history. Taking any of it as truth beyond a parable when it's been so bastardized and corrupted, even if it was once the literal word of god, strikes me as dumb as shit. The fact that anybody who knows the history of their own religion is still able to not only take it seriously, but claim any of it as fact really blows my mind.

It becomes integral to their personality. Most people of faith will rationalize any doubts and dismiss them in whatever way they can. Many will just rationalize by saying to themselves, "None of that is true".
When a belief is that embedded in a persons psyche, something they've believed as fact their whole life, it takes a whole lot to get them to doubt it. You'd see the same thing with the euphoric atheists if suddenly there was proof that God exists.
I for one believe there is a god that created, or governs, the universe but it is not the god of any religion, or the books just interpreted him in different ways.

The Genesis story was taken from the Epic of Gilgamesh. There was no global flood though- it was most likely based on a real local flood back then but then turned into mythology as primitive cultures are prone to do.
Geology, archaeology and genetics prove there never was a global flood.
#79 - popeflatus (15 hours ago) [-]
The observation that in the geological and fossil record we see no flood is evidence for their not being a global flood. We see no genetic bottle neck in the genetic record either at 4-6000 years ago. This evidence demonstrates there never was this flood and hence the Noah story is a myth.

I see no way a four month flood can leave a fossil record as most fish skeletons would either be picked off by birds or written off as fish caught and brought inland similar for geological records. most ancient lakes being identified by shells,fish skeletons and coral all which would take years to develop. and as for a genetic bottle neck the groups that survived the flood would either be advanced enough to have boats or groups which fled to high ground which is just about every early civilization.
#81 - popeflatus (6 hours ago) [-]
The geologic record simply shows that no flood took place. We know that there was no genetic bottle neck and that a handful of animals can't just head back to their original locations.
Take the Australian Aboriginals for example. They have a continuous linage that goes back 40,000 years! No flood killed them off.

When we unearth enough of Egypt to get their clear timeline or use newly discovered faster then light travel to get a view of earth thousands of light years away we'll have more reliable records until then I'm just going to assume our ancestors knew a flood when they saw one, even if they do mistake random large animals for demons and monsters.
#88 - abysszero (6 hours ago) [-]
other then the written record what more can you expect? fossilized water? it's not like a few fish skeleton's out of place can prove anything. I'm not an expert on floods but other then flash floods or tsunami's they don't seem to leave much behind other then water.
