The mother of all Genocides

Genesis 6:17-23 For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered. The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than twenty feet. Every living thing that moved on the earth perished—birds, livestock, wild animals, all the creatures that swarm over the earth, and all mankind. Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died. Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; men and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds of the air were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark.

PERSONAL COMMENTARY

This story is one of the more popular Bible stories for children. If you really think about it, it's not a very good image to put into the minds of our children.

[Read the story of The Flood in The Brick Testament - An Illustrated Bible]

"our children" would be made a lot better if they saw stuff like that.
personally, i think everyone should be forced (as part of the education system) to watch every kind of porn quite often. it really puts good perspectives on things. gets rid of the illusions of all that nonsense... people want food, sex, violence, excitement, love, hate; everything that gives pleasure. the more we realise we are completely selfish beings what do everything for our own pleasure..the easier it will be to be to experience such pleasures.

by the way... millionth time iv said this.

BEING CHARITABLE IS SELFISH (just like everything else)

YOU ONLY GIVE TO OTHERS BECAUSE IT MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD (EITHER SEEING THE LOOK ON THEIR FACE, OR THE BELIEF THAT YOUV DONE SOMETHING "GOOD" AND MEANINGFUL)...

IF YOU DIDNT ENJOY IT, YOU WOULDNT DO IT. simple as.

If it was "Genocide" then why the arc? Which, by the way, had two of every species (eg. dog, cat, mouse) and humans inside it. The human race continued, as did all other species. That isn't genocide if you use a dictionary definition.
I'd suggest finding better arguments, instead of pasting mere fractions of a whole story. It gives you a bigger picture... getting rid of narrow-mindedness.

one does wonder jus how f**cking big was this arc to hold all those animals?and how the hell was moses able to travel to every freaking continent and collect all of those animals.the guy was good.and how was he and jus his wife sons and daughters able to feed all of them?but then u dont have to ask because god did it.lol.as far as i know the problem started when his angels couldn't keep their hands off of our female ancestors.and some how it was the womens fault for being beautiful.notice the bible never said that the women give consent.it said the angels took whom ever they pleased.and they got the lighter sentence to.just jail time in a pit.while we were nearly wiped out.for an all seeing god he should have seen that coming.any of us dumb humans would hav known what would happen if u strap an angel with all the recquisite male parts but no female angels to satisfy there needs.wonder what they use to do before female humans came along?
