To Dick and the group:

Genesis 3:20. Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the
mother of all the living.

Dick: Did Adam give Eve the wrong name?

To Glenn and the group:

Yes, Glenn, I did write that your 5.5 mya Noah gave me indigestion.
Yes, I know that that is not a legitimate reason for rejecting your
hypothesis. I do, however, want to hear a lot more from experts in
the relevant disciplines before I accept your view. For me, the strongest
part of your view is that there is no wall in Southern Mesopotamia
to hold in the water--and that there could not have been enough geolgoical
change in the last few thousand years to destroy such a wall, had it
existed.
