The theory of the flood and evolution - Paying attention to detail!

by Thomas B.
(Hickory, NC)

Darwin has to be wrong about evolution. It has been proven that a great flood did in fact happen due to finding prehistoric animal remains on every continent over the earth. What is really interesting. Is when you thin in terms of a flood a lot of things get mixed up and where they settle and why after the fact when the water recedes.


It partly why we find shark teeth in mountain regions. So it makes perfect sense that we would find say monkey remains in a cave with human remains. Does this mean that they are connected? Probably not. It simply proves that a great flood did in fact happen. One might find a mixture of human, creature, insect, reptile, mammalian remains all over the earth. It just so happened that Darwin found similar remains together which doesn't really prove anything. In fact DNA evidence shows that most creatures do in fact have similar genes. Why we use frog DNA and plug in other DNA's form different things to complete the chains of DNA sequences. They are compatible, but it doesn't mean we come from frogs or some thing that crawled out on to dry land.

If a flood did happen then where do all the people of the earth with different skin colors come from? Well the bible story in Genesis explains it. Genesis chapter 6 reads as follows. Verse 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."

In this passage one must assume that when gd says the word "flesh" it is not meaning animal. It means races. All colors of people, two of every kind. The reason I believe this is because he refers to "flesh meaning "people" in other passages in the same story. verse 17 says "and behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth to destroy all flesh, where in is the breath of life, from under heaven: and everything that is in the earth shall die." in this passage gd refers to flesh as being people. If not then why does he distinctly say animal, creeping this, fouls of the air, beasts as references to animals and not humans in other passages within the same story?

I believe it is us as humans of today who have misread and misinterpreted the use of the word "flesh" we simply believe it was referring to animals and creatures, yet in the story gd refers to types of creatures individually. He even says to take seven of the clean beasts, Why? well Noah and his family were not alone- two of every race of man were with Noah and his family. that is why we have the different skin colors and races today. Gd distinctly clarifies animals and creeping things by use of specific names yet he uses the word "flesh" when speaking of humans.
In the passage verse3 of chapter 6 reads as follows "and the lord said, my spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is "flesh" yet his days shall be a hundred and 20 years."

So simply he clearly defines his use
of the word flesh meaning people not animal. It is men of today with our knowledge and not really reading the bible more closely that we gave the interpretation of the genesis story a different meaning. We left out the word "flesh" in our mental quickness of reading and not really paying attention to details of the story and word play in gds words within the story.

So my understanding is this, gd told Noah to collect two of every type of male and female race-humans. Then he commanded Noah to collect 7 of every clean thing, and two of every unclean thing. Why? 7 clean things? For it to be used in food and oblation for the passengers he would be carrying. Too, if we take the old story literally then how do you get black and brown skin from white people? Common sense will tell you that theory is wrong. There were two of every race of people on that ship and the cultures and people of today are all descendants from those people, otherwise everyone would be white and one race.
This also disproves Darwin's theory of evolution. One could find a reptile skeleton mixed in with human skeletons all over the earth.

Does this mean we come from reptile species? No, so why would it be so hard to believe that when Darwin looked in that cave he found monkey skulls mixed in with human skulls. How would you flee from a flood if waters started rising today? We assume this was all instantaneous. Maybe it wasn't. Maybe the water rose slowly over 40 days and animals and humans huddled together trying to survive. When they didn't and died, of course the remains buried in silt over time would look as Darwin found it when he made his discovery. Too is it so hard to believe that animal and human bodies might have simply settled there as flood waters receded?

We need to pay more attention to detail and not simply listen to theories of other people without first reading it for ourselves. Believe no man, read the words of ancient writings for self ad apply common knowledge to those words before we make it an exact science. Theory is just that a opinion. If it is valid after tested then it becomes written in stone. But personally I believe Darwin's theory of evolution is wrong. I also believe that the many different colored people walking around today can be explained by the genesis story of the flood. It proves Darwin could not be correct. Safe to also assume that modern people of today are remnants of the original two male and female "flesh" that were taken aboard that ship that day by Noah and his family. Gd spared more than just Noah and his family. Otherwise we'd all be white.

Who pointed this out to me? My father, when we set and discuss bible facts, word play, and stories in our many talks about gd and religion. He is a devout Christian man and me I am a learning Jewish man. Common sense plays a big part in interpretation of bible study or studies of religious materials. It is human who make the error in not paying attention to detail.

Genesis 6 & 7
by: Joaozinho Martins

One will be left wondering as to how ‘flesh’ in Genesis 6, 7 refers to ‘races’ or ‘all colors of people, two of every kind’ that were taken inside the ark. In fact, only eight souls [human beings] were taken inside the ark. (Gen. 6:18; 7:7; 2 Peter 2:4).

Just because ‘flesh’ at times refers to ‘’people’’, it doesn’t mean ‘all flesh’ refers only to human beings. “And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shall thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female’’ (Gen. 6:20-21; 7:8-9).

This clearly refers to animals and birds and not only solely to any men. “Behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth to destroy all flesh, where in is the breath of life, from under heaven: and everything that is in the earth shall die". In other words, “All flesh is not the same flesh: there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, another of birds” (1 Corinthians 15:39).

So what reason do we have to assume all flesh in Genesis 6 and 7 refer only to men exclusively of other living creatures?
