Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent. Full Story

I saw the Kumar's live in Warwick. Their programme was printed like a curry house menu. I saw Sanjeev Bhaskar again in Hammersmith for a Dougals Adams tribute. Loved them all to bits.
I really loved "Sparkhill Sound" on Radio 4, the precursor to Citizen Khan, but only made it through two of the TV programmes. You're right, it should've been hilarious but it was too concerned about offence to be funny. The cast was very talented, I felt let down.
It was more self conscious and nearly as unfunny as the Cosby show was in the US.

Adil ray is really really funny. I used to listen to him on the radio, but i wasn't impressed with his acting.

I never knew about sparkhill sound.

I don't know why people find the truth offensive!

<quoted text>Sure, here's some more words of wisdom. Your God told Noah to gather ALL vertebrates and AIR BREATHERS, Whales fall into that category.....now, said Ark, for all you children out there, was said to be 400 feet long. A BLUE WHALE is 98 feet long and weights around 180 tons, of course you need two right? Next we would have a two Brontosaurus's each over 75 feet in length and each weighing around 16 tons. So kiddies, lets do the math. Before we load any of the other millions of species aboard we already have almost a half million tons of animal flesh on board 492 tons, and a combined length of 346 feet. Ok lets start loading all those marsupials. Ever wonder how they got to the location of the Ark from Australia? Oh yeah, GODMAGIC, I forgot. Same GODMAGIC that got the animals from both the Arctic and Antarctic. Ok kids, story time is over, off to bed!!!!
Oh boy.

"God told Noah to gather ALL vertebrates and AIR BREATHERS, Whales fall into that category..."

Please provide the scripture that says that. If you can, we'll continue.

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.

I've got the .mp3 but the BBC doesn't want to share anymore :(

Yes it says he saw God just wondering was it the God of the bible? I know nothing more less of you faith so my question has no malice intent just true curiosity.
So he saw the same God as Moses saw pretty interesting.
I am Christian by the way.
Yes, We believe there is only one God! Everyone worships the same God but every religion uses different names for him. Your God is the same as my God, but I have a different view of him. We have a different understanding of him and a different relationship with him.

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.
