    I'm not sure what value there is to denying all of the evidence for a
    local flood. It confirms the Septuagint/Samaritan Pentateuch "long age"
    genealogies. And a real ark is a powerful indicator of God at work.
    Of course, it makes Bible translators look absolutely awful, which is
    why the translation of "mountains" in the flood story has not been
    changed to "hills."

    So, if this is your biggest beef with Scripture, you are in good shape.

    It's nice to be talking to you again.

    Take care,
