The deluge. (there just isn't enough water.

The deluge really happened.

Q. Yes way. No way.

A. No way.

The text that follows is an extract from an unpublished manuscript called: “The legend of Jesus “, © 2008 by Jean-Paul Gosselin.

 The deluge

I suppose that the majority of people has learned, in its young years, about the principle of rainmaking and understands its functioning. Water evaporates from the earth’s oceans,lakes and rivers into the atmosphere thereby forming clouds of water vapor which, after sufficient cooling, is then transformed into water, showering the earth with rain. This cycle has faithfully, although not identically or uniformly, been repeated through the history of the earth.

The bible tells us that god informed Noah that as much rain would fall on earth as the tallest mountain is high, plus fifteen cubits. A cubit is an ancient unit of measurement
equivalent to the length of a man’s arm taken from his elbow to the tip of his longest, or in this case, the middle finger. After averaging the length of a few measurements we find that the final figure that was then generally adopted is twenty inches and the tallest mountain on earth we also know is Everest.

Mount Everest, it’s been determined, culminates at twenty-nine thousand and twenty-nine feet above sea level. If we add fifteen cubits or twenty-five feet to its height we arrive at a total of twenty-nine thousand and fifty-four feet. Dividing this last amount by forty, which is the length of time in days that we are told that it rained, we can then establish that seven hundred and twenty-six feet deep of water fell each day that the deluge lasted. In order to find out as to how much rain fell during each hour we have to divide this figure by twenty-four hours and we are left starring at the unbelievable amount of thirty feet or, if you wish, six inches per minute..

You see, Pauline, it’s naturally and mathematically impossible for two feet of water to fall to earth when only one foot has evaporated from it and, even if the god of the bible had completely drained the earth of its water and returned it in the form of rain, that rain would simply have filled the cavities left empty by the evaporation, without causing any inundation. Where then has he taken the required extra water from? Certainly not from outer space because it’s been proven that there’s none on the moon and that it’s only present in micro and perhaps nano-quantities on Mars and probably on the other planets as compared to the volume found on earth.

Has the deluge really happened or is it just another story invented by whomever wrote the old testament portion of the bible and that the catholic (Christian) church uses in order to show the power of its invisible god?

It’s for you to judge Pauline.

What do you think?

Whether you agree with or have an objection to my blog, leave a comment. I’m open to favorable or unfavorable criticism and what you write might enlighten other readers or myself.

Thank you.

Take this with you.

It was a sunny Saturday morning on the course and I was beginning my pre-shot routine,

visualizing my upcoming shot, when a voice came over the clubhouse loudspeaker.

"Would the gentleman on the woman's tee back up to the men's tee please!!"

I was still deep in my routine, seemingly impervious to the interruption.

Again the announcement, "Would the MAN on the WOMEN'S tee kindly back up to the men's tee."

I simply ignored the guy and kept concentrating, when once more, the man yelled:

"Would the man on the woman's tee back up to the men's tee, PLEASE!

I finally stopped, turned, looked through the clubhouse window directly at the person with the microphone and shouted back,

"Would the person in the clubhouse kindly shut up and let me play my second shot?"

Have a swell day, stay relaxed, have a beer and don’t forget; keep smiling. Life is good. Buena la vida. La vie est belle.
