Genesis 6: Did anyone hear what God said?
1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born unto them,
Aha, it was the men who multiplied! I thought that was against God’s laws.
2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were fair; and they took for themselves wives of all whom they chose.
Of course. Men just take from women. It’s the christian way.
3 And the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not always strive with man, for he also is flesh; yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty years.”
Bullshit. They were living for hundreds of years. We’ve never had an average life of 120 years. Not even close.
4 There were giants on the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men and they bore children to them, the same became mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
Giants? Getting into too much of the herbs methinks.
5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagining of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Yep, all that begatting with other men is certainly evil in his book.
6 And the LORD repented that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him in His heart.
Hey, he wanted it and he organised it and he made them in his image. What did he expect?
7 And the LORD said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, and the creeping thing and the fowls of the air, for I repent that I have made them.”
Oh, isn’t that so merciful? Warms the heart that does. He doesn’t like the mess he created so he murders all but Noah and crew.
8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
No explanation so far as to why Noah found grace.
9 These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
What is ‘perfect in his generations’?
10 And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
I wonder what his wife was doing while he was begatting?
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
What did he expect? He caused it.
12 And God looked upon the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
No, Noah wasn’t corrupt. More crap.
13 And God said unto Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
No, not all flesh, just most. Remember Noah and his family, all the animals, fish and birds etc?
14 Make thee an ark of gopherwood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt cover it within and without with pitch.
Ah, this has been covered so many times. That thing was not big enough to hold two of all animals. Not even close. What a crock. Also, I have to wonder what it does to a person to work with pitch the whole time during the build and then to be closed up inside a vessel covered in it with only one window for forty days and forty nights.
15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: the length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.
That big and only one window? All those animals. All that waste. All that methane and only one window. I wonder what happened each time Noah’s wife lit the fire to cook dinner?
16 A window shalt thou make for the ark, and to a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.
17 And behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth to destroy all flesh wherein is the breath of life from under heaven; and every thing that is on the earth shall die.
Noooo, not the fish or the birds that can fly for longer than 40 days. Yes, there are birds that can.
18 But with thee will I establish My covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou and thy sons, and thy wife and thy sons’ wives with thee.
19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.
20 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee to keep them alive.
21 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be food for thee and for them.”
NOT big enough for all the animals to begin with and yet they also had to have room for food for all those animals for forty days. Hmmm, some of those animals are carnivores, so who went out and killed all those animals and how did they stow that and keep it edible for forty days?
22 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.
So once again we only have one small group of humans to breed from and they are already inbred. Considering what God already allows, it doesn’t seem that cousins begatting with cousins would cause him to blink an eyelid.
