WVotW: Moderism – Nova & Noah

April 26, 2009

On the way to church today, Nova 96.9 raise the issue of the historicity of the Bible (!). It found a report that 6 out of 10 Aussie believe that Jesus rose from the dead but attention quickly moved onto Noah and the Ark. The hosts threw it open to the audience to account for the story, especially regarding how all the animals could fit on the Ark. One lady suggested that Noah brough two of every kind not every species of animal and so after the flood all the different spieces evolved from each of its kind. “It’s science” she declared. The hosts were not so sure about the explaination but conceded “I like the ‘It’s science’ bit”. Moderism still breeds credibility.

For the record, the best explanation was that Noah to two of every baby animal, so there was plenty of room and you didn’t have all the mating issues!
