Atheism rose in spite of ‘ridiculous’ stories

Quote

Thanks to Ronald Mayer for his insightful comments on the state of medical and physics knowledge today. Apparently the ancients knew all that is known today and more, and that information was lost without a trace after the flood.

Apparently Noah and presumably a few friends built a boat the size of Vancouver Island, loaded it with a mating pair or every animal, bird, insect, fish, and presumably a pair of every race of mankind on the planet as well as enough food to feed every animal and man for this long voyage. I wonder how the Brontosaurus got along with the smaller species.

The result was the loss of all knowledge to that time. Noah didn’t think to bring along a set of encyclopedias of the day or did not have room for any discs full of all that advanced information. They did have computers and external hard drives didn’t they?

Perhaps that spiritual connection to the universe was lost when people actually began to think for themselves. They realized how ridiculous these stories can be. And thus the rise of atheism following the failure of the church to stifle the scientific movements since the flood ended. And just as an aside, where did all that water go to after it wiped out every living thing on the planet save for those on the Ark?

Honestly Mr. Mayer are we really to take you seriously on this matter? Or are you still trying to increase the gems in that crown that awaits you? Certainly you are helping to create atheists with this skewed line of talk.

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
