<quoted text>If a Great Flood did happen, it is hardly surprising that more than one account would appear. An interesting difference though is that if a boat were built according to the Gilgamesh account it would basically be a cube that would be rolled over and over in the water. Conversely, if a boat were built following the Biblical description, it would be completely seaworthy.

And why in the world would it surprise you that the Koran (or Quran) would bear similarity to the Bible. The Quran wasn't written until the 7th century AD and took much of its content from the Torah - it just changed the emphasis from the lineage of Abraham to Isaac and substituted the lineage of Abraham to Ishmael, thus claiming that the Arabs are actually God's chosen people.
It surprises me a great deal because with all the furor and problems related to Muslim vs. Christians vs. Jews vs. Muslims vs. Christians vs. Muslims, etc., you'd think the teachings as to acceptable human behavior would differ much more substantially than they do.

As to Noah's Ark - i don't believe it actually occurred, rather, I consider it an allegorical attempt to convey a moral message, so I never really world how big a boat would need to be to hold some 500,000 species (X 2), along with cages, containers, and food for all.

I also never worried about how many angels could dance on the head of a pin, or how, as was posed on Saturday Night Live, "What if Eleanor Roosevelt could fly ?"

BigDave, not only is that flat-out wrong, it's also insane. It's simply not what's happening in the world.

Your 30,000 scientists suing Al Gore is fake news from 2008. Get it? It's fake! Your "Before it's News" link states they got their info from "Maggies Notebook" who has distanced themselves from it. http://www.maggiesnotebook.com/2013/04/al-gor...

The other one is from Alex Jones. The same guy who hosts "infowars" and prisonplanet.com , both notoreous right-wing whacko propaganda sites, and who claimed the US. Govt. was behind the Oklahoma City bombings, 9/11, and that the moon landing was fake.

The third article is based on a paper by Nicola Scafetta, who never could produce the computer code required to back up his assertions. He's widely considered a 3rd rate scientist who got his undergraduate degree from the University of Pisa and his PHD from the University of North Texas. He blames the Challenger explosion on "flawed data" to explain away any real research being done by real scientists.

The Tuscon Citizen hasn't been a newspaper since 2009 when it shut down. It was investigated by the US Justice Department and the Arizona Attorney General. It's now only an online "blog". Other links on the website say that "burning coal will prevent global warming".

You're brain is turning to mush by reading this ridiculous drivel. I'm not even kidding.

Maybe we dont have to worry about socialism taking over, we can just turn the country over to muslims courtesy of obama's administration.

"It is quite possible, though, the FBI agents who interviewed Tsarnaev on both occasions failed to understand what they saw and heard because that's what they were trained to do. As The Washington Examiner's Mark Flatten reported last year, FBI training manuals were systematically purged in 2011 of all references to Islam that were judged offensive by a specially created five-member panel. Three of the panel members were Muslim advocates from outside the FBI, which still refuses to make public their identities. Nearly 900 pages were removed from the manuals as a result of that review. Several congressmen were allowed to review the removed materials in 2012, on condition that they not disclose what they read to their staffs, the media, or the general public."

Dave, the libtards dont know there was an ice age in history. dont tell them facts, they get confused from them.

Heck, they didnt know it wasnt "global warming" until I told them it was "global climate change" which confused them badly. Since they now can say "climate change", it gives them and out and they can say anytime the Earth cools or gets hot, it's because of man made changes. See, they go both ways in more ways than one.

Who is the "Center for Consumer Freedom"? It SOUNDS like a good thing, doesn't it?

They're a fake "grassroots" group that fights regulation of the food and beverage industries. More paid-for corporate propaganda influencing Republican politics. They have also been a significant funder of ALEC, a group that has clearly established a "collaboration between multinational corporations and conservative state legislators."

Quit eating at Wendy's. Both Democracy by the People and your butt-hole will thank you.
It's great Wendy's supports Americans freedom to experience botulism for the consumer, and low wage benefit free working conditions.

It just happens to be another reason American worker productivity is at an all time high, profits have exploded through the roof, and working class Americans real incomes have dropped.

The Government Accountability Institute (GAI) is a "a new conservative investigative research organization."[1] The GAI states as its mission "to investigate and expose crony capitalism, misuse of taxpayer monies, and other governmental corruption or malfeasance."[2]

The GAI has several ties to right-wing groups such as Citizens United, the American Conservative Union, Young America's Foundation, and the Hoover Institution, through its key staff and board members:

Peter Schweizer, president of the GAI, is a researcher for the Hoover Institution in Stanford, California.[3] Mr. Schweizer is also on the Research Advisory Council of the James Madison Institute,[4] a member of the State Policy Network, which itself is a member of the American Legislative Exchange Council.

Executive Chairman and co-founder of the GAI, Stephen Bannon, is the Executive Chairman of Breitbart News LLC, the parent company of Breitbart.com , a conservative news and opinion website, founded by conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart[5][6].

Board member, Ron Robinson, is a director of both Citizens United[7] and the American Conservative Union.[8][6] Mr. Robinson has also acted as the president of the Young America's Foundation for over thirty years.[9]

Why The Obama Foreign Donation ‘Scandal’ Is Pure Fiction
By Josh Israel on Oct 9, 2012 at 2:47 pm
http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2012/10/09/9...

Despite significant right-wing hype, a new report by the conservative Government Accountability Institute (GAI) on the potential for foreign nationals to illegally contribute to U.S. political campaigns does not actually find any evidence of foreign nationals successfully donating to the Obama campaign. Still, a wide array of conservative and mainstream publications have incorrectly reported that the report documents foreign donors giving to the President’s re-election.
Citizens United, YAF, and Breibart.

Three Fascist entities completely devoted to the destruction of democracy.

Obviously you do not agree with these folks, which simply highlights, again, my point that Christianity is not a unified religion, but a religion of many sects each with their own interpretation.

Emergence of the Four Gospel Canon
Dozens of gospels circulated in early Christian communities. How were the four now contained in the New Testament chosen?

==========
Since you did not provide a link to the quote I went looking for myself, if this is still not the exact quote, providing the correct context, then you will need to supply the reference.

It still sounds like a contrived argument for just four gospels.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irenaeus
"But it is not possible that the Gospels can be either more or fewer in number than they are. For since there are four zones of the world in which we live, and four principal winds, while the church has been scattered throughout the world, and since the 'pillar and ground' of the Church is the Gospel and the spirit of life, it is fitting that she should have four pillars, breathing incorruption on every side, and vivifying human afresh. From this fact, it is evident that the Logos, the fashioner demiourgos of all, he that sits on the cherubim and holds all things together, when he was manifested to humanity, gave us the gospel under four forms but bound together by one spirit." Against Heresies 3.11.8
When, oh when, will you learn that those who profess loudest to be Christians - aren't.

Peace, passivity, tolerance, selflessness, responsibility for others, self-sacrifice - are all an anathematic to Right Wingers.

What, you find it incredible that male and female pairs of hundreds of thousands of individual species were caught, caged, placed on board a ship, where they were fed and cared for while the entire Earth was flooded, until they were subsequently peacefully released with 0% mortality ?

That sure makes more sense than the story is a moral fable used to impart religious instruction.
