The builder wanted to sail it (okay, have it towed) to London for the Olympics.
He couldn't get a Certificate of Seaworthiness from any country on the planet, even Liberia.
He couldn't get insurance from any company in the world, even Lloyd's of London, and they normally insure anything - at premiums they decide are appropriate.
The City of London didn't want it. Apart from the distinct danger that it might well sink and bollock up navigation, it coulda damaged the Thames Barrier.
It was regarded as a fire hazard, even if it'd been moored in London.
"Reproduction"? It was built on a frame of 37 steel barges welded together. I'm fairly sure that wasn't an option in Noah's day.
It was, not to put too fine a point on it, a total and utter clusterfuck.

Not at the moment...just a question. Why do atheists advertise or promote their belief system?
We don't have a belief system. That ad you posted was just a reminder that we can enjoy our lives without religion or a belief in god. Very,*very* subversive statement, I know. We should stop being so uppity.

It's not "launched": it's sitting at a damn dock.
It's a total fake.
According to duckie12, Noah's didn't launch either! The flood was only 20 feet high! LOL! Kill every living thing, but only 20 ft high!

Can you produce anything from this "belief system"?

If it's only one belief, it's not a system.

So, what else is part of the system?

Did you just make it up?

What is that belief system called, and do you know of anyone that follows it?

Besides that, we've told you before, again and again, basic atheism is the lack of belief in gods.

No valid definition of atheism invokes the name of any specific deity.

But I thought atheists have a belief but just not a religious or supernatural one?

Isn't a belief something that you think is true? You think that religion is wrong, so you think your opinion is true, so is that not a belief?

Everyone has their own understanding! hehehehehe

Sikhism denied religion, but it too is called a religion now, that's how things are in this world, people assume and put name tags on you.

Silly troll, elegance, sophistication & social graces are open for interpretation. YOU don't get to define them based on your little world.
Understanding, empathy & social interaction is lost on you.
There is NO interpretation of your classless comments on post #142946. Under any decent social environment they would be considered rude, classless, and grotesque. Although it's probably acceptable amongst your hillbilly friends, here in the civilized part of the country you would be looked on with revulsion and pity.

I got a good laugh at the atheist ad: "There's probably no God"
HA HA HA HA!!!!
What an argument, huh?
And Dick Dawkins is standing there admiring the ad........
He's thinking " Yup, this'll work!"
There is NO argument to be had, there probably is no God. And thats the polite rendition, I like this one better. Due to the complete and utter lack of evidence there simply is no God. Or.........The evidence for God is the same as there is for werewolves.

A term of opprobrium.

In context, "eff-up".

Although the term actually refers to the male reproductive coupling gear.
