<quoted text> I'd suggest you go with the Jewish metaphor.
First, the Jews do not interpret the story of the flood the way Christians do. The Jews see it as a story relating to the continuing redemption of the Israelites, and not much more.
It is also synonymous with the first creations story, taking the earth back to a place where there was only water and no dry land, where no plants or animals existed. It is a new Genesis or beginning.
As far as the metaphor of what the number of animals taken onto the ark mean, I haven't studied that portion. But I'll be glad for you to share it with me.
I'll take Jewish metaphor (or any metaphor) over literal translation any day.
Agreed

<quoted text>It might be relevant if the story didn't give details of a rain that lasted for 40 days and 40 nights because there were two great floods in the middle east. One was about 12,000 BCE and one between 5,000-6,000 BCE.
But when a story gives details on how the flood happened, how a person had to build an ark to save a pair of each type of animal (or in the other story 3 pairs plus an odd one) in order to repopulate the earth, then scientific facts can't play a role. You either have to go with scientific evidence of large local floods or you have to go with myth.
Seeing as the 3000 year old Genesis flood story is a retelling of the 6000 year old Sumerian flood story, it places it within human memory of the massive flood that (accordomg to modern science)created the Black Sea about 5600 BC.

Go read up on Mahikari. You are full of it, using my mother's death, which you know nothing about, to be incendiary is a new low, even for you. How on earth you think you would have a clue about my mother's beliefs is beyond me. There, now you can parrot some predictable line and tell yourself I care what you pretend to think.
I am not using your mother's death for anything except to say that some people follow their religious beliefs more closely than others. It doesn't matter what the religion is.

I don't 'pretend to think'. I think. I give you an opinion based on thinking.

I am truly sorry if you think I used your mother's death as a method of being incendiary.

I didn't make any remark about your mother's beliefs except to say that she may have been following her beliefs more closely than do some others. That should not be offensive, as it was not meant to be in any way. In fact, it was more a compliment than anything else.

I don't care what you or anyone else believes. But if you say you believe in a certain religion/religious figure's teachings, then I have the right as a human being to decide for myself if you are following those teachings or not. I didn't make any direct remark to you about your religion in a derogatory way.

If I hurt you it was not my intention. The loss of a parent is a very hard thing with which to deal and heartbreaking. If I hurt you with anything I said, I am truly sorry.

You're correct. I did spend it all on picnic supplies and having a rotor blade repaired. The basket was leaning to one side as one of the blades was not operating.

As for the picnic supplies, you can look over them and if I missed your fave picnic treat, I'll supply it.

Thanks to the redemption of all those 'you're going to hell' remarks and the redemption from Topix for all the nuts and spam (not to mention the double points for the racy icons improperly used!), I have enough money for the picnic journey in May. Pack your swim suit!

By the way, it wasn't a trophy, it was a ribbon. I can still cut it in two and send half to each of you.

I supply lemonade, iced tea, soft drinks, hot cocoa and coffee. Anything else is packed by each picnic-er to his or her own taste. I really can't afford to pack what everybody wants because there just aren't enough basket funds to do so. You don't have to brown-bag it though unless you're in the Bible belt. Remember that state trooper who wanted to confiscate all the alcohol? We are not supplying him and his buddies! So hide it when we're traveling through those areas that have declared their counties to be dry under the guidance of their God.
