Y'know, there just isn't a way to tell the story of Noah that doesn't sound absolutely fucking ridiculous. It's so ridiculous, in fact, that any child over the age of seven will start asking skeptical questions about it, and yet there are huge numbers of Americans (my wife and her entire family included) that can't read it as anything other than actual history. It boggles the fucking mind.
Yep. I am embarrassed now to say that I believed it. I had questions but just put them out of my mind and believed God must have made the whole thing work "supernaturally". Really I just turned off critical thinking when it came to the story...actually when it came to the entire Bible. It's funny b/c our kids say they never bought any of it - it always seemed ridiculous to them. The only difference between them and me was that I attended Sunday School from the time I was old enough to talk, so I had all of that shit pounded into my brain as the truth. It is SO crazy now to look at how convoluted that book is! Gervais does a great job of showing the ridiculousness of it...it helps to be able to laugh about it now.
