You're right about Adil Ray being really funny. Sparkhill Sound was a superb radio creation. But when he hit the TV as Khan, it felt all 70s and naff.

Facts to a Topix atheist is something "they" told you is true. Not "facts" they develop from living themselves. Why "education" is so important to them. Otherwise they wouldn't know nothing. They'd be iggorant.
Of course, the more esoteric the "facts" they are told are "facts" by "them", and them learning those "facts", just really boosts their egos because their "education" is now elevated.
Of course, this causes many, many billions of existing humans, and all of those existing before these "facts" were revealed by "them", to be stupid, which would just have to elevate their egos to even higher levels. The absolute cream of the crop of humanity. The pinnacle of education and intelligence. It took billions of years to get there, but they arrived.
Here to save humanity.
Atheists are dumb.

God gave the people of Noah's time 120 years to prepare for God's judgment and repent of their sin and rebellion toward God. During this time of grace only Noah and his family obeyed, repented, and were saved.
Before God judges a people, He always gives fair warning. This is seen many times in the Bible. No one will be able to come before the judgement throne of God and say they never knew about God's demands.
You do believe it's a metaphorical story, right?

But why did God create us to punish us? What's the point?

I believe it's a allegorical story. I think it's intended to do a warning, nothing more.

It is not a scientific account, it is an account of God's promise, man's obedience, and God's fidelity. Don't use standards of science, geography and history to judge literature that is none of these things.

Also do not cite spurious scientific sources to rebut biblical accounts. There is plenty of geological evidence for catastrophic flooding in different stages of earth's history, and in biblical times in the Near East where this account took place.

I really don't think it was a worldwide flood, I think it was a local flood. The biblical use of "all the earth," even in the N.T., often refers to the Middle East, or sometimes the Roman Empire. For example, when Jesus was born, Luke 2 records that "all the earth" was taxed by the Romans.....

You don't have movies in England? "You had me at hello" is from Jerry McGuire, a Tom Cruise movie. Not bad, for a chick flick.

Hiding, my love, I have a piece of evolutionary knowledge for you. Something that can determine if your genes, or even yourself, will survive for more than the moment.
Cock your eye to that juicy morsel of knowledge hanging there in the middle of nothing, wriggling around ever so temptingly.
Nibble it at the edges. Don't gulp it down. It's important you do that.
You are even double more dumber with a topping of crazy.
