I just recently signed up and I thought that with my first post I'd offer you a good laugh. A few years ago I was involved in several disscusions at hannity.com concerning religion. Mostly evolution v. creation but also several on the Flood. One of the more out there posters had put togethor what he called a 'book' that he felt put forward a strong case in favor of the story of the ark... it doesn't. To give you a taste of the scholarship involved in this work, he uses a unit of measurement called 'cubit mass' when discussing the relative size of the boats described in the Bible and in the Epic of Gilgamesh. He also, quite seriously, references the Necronomicon as a real book written by the Mad Arab, Alhazrad (if you're not familiar, it's a fictional text invented by HP Lovecraft in the early 1920's). I'd like to include it as an attached file but I'm posting from an iPhone. So if you'd like to see it I have it stored in my email and perhaps I could send it to someone and they could post it or attach it here, it's well worth the read, if just for the yucks. So I guess either post here or I see I have an inbox so I assume people can send me messages, either way.
