It wasn't just him on the boat as I recall. Please actually read the Old Testament and make sure you understood it correctly before stating your opinion on it.

I understand your criticism, but i was making the connection that Noah was the father of the the three sons (shem, ham, and japheth), who fathered the rest of humanity. Believe me, I have read the ****** Bible. I'm currently graduating from a Jesuit high school. Couldn't have made it this far without actually opening a Bible.

Correction: At no point in human history have we been selected down to one man's lineage.

Correct. It wasn't just Noah.

Noah was accompanied on the ark with his wife and their three sons and their wives.

okay, post places The Bible as fact, so i'll argue doing the same.

1: God gave all life in the first place, along with a set of rules. if said rules were broken, life was revoked. a contract system, just and fair since the single rule was: don't eat from that one tree over there, eat from any of the other hundreds of thousands. Conversely, Hitler had no right to take even a single life, including his own (it wasn't his to take, one reason suicide is a sin on the level of murder)

2: Humanity were warned. The Ark took one hundred years to build, and Noah was warning people. they made fun of him for building a boat and speaking about rain (to this point it never had) and flooding. they thought it would all go ahead as it always had, and they still had the chance to live if they just got onto the boat, which nobody besides Noah and his family did.

3: man was not corrupting God's plan for a perfect world, man was corrupting God's perfect man, and already had past the point or redemption for most. "And every thought of man was constantly on evil." there were people attaining celebrity status for killing other people for no real reason. a man named Lamech created a song about how he murdered a guy. God had a reason, and punished people not for who they were, but what they did. Hitler irrationally hated normal people for the sole reason of being born that way.

does this make OP's shortsighted addition to the atheistic belief-shoving fad seem any more silly? don't expect much of a reply, it's late around here.

if you have a child, the child is from your body, which is still not yours (as stated before) so it's still not your child and you didn't make it. it's yours in one way: in the sense that you are to take care of and have custody of it, but you do not own the child and have full rights to do whatever you want to it, nor to yourself.

Adam and Eve had no knowledge of good and evil. They did, however, know who God was, and could understand fully. you can understand if someone says "stay away from that tree over there, and if you eat it you'll die" and so could they. Adam and Eve doubted God, and disobeyed, those two acts are their sin. They had no sense of morality at all, but they did know to obey God, and they did know fully what they were doing when they ate the forbidden fruit. they didn't have to know it was wrong, they did have to and did know they were being disobedient. they didn't know it was inherently "wrong" to disobey. They did know, however, that they were supposed to stay away from that tree. they didn't know why, but they did know.

in the case of an artificial intelligence, if given a command, and if the command is not followed, a punishment is doled out. it did not know of a right and wrong to following the command, only that it was to follow the command. it is moral in that case, to punish it, since it knew what was supposed to be done and did not.

they were given the tools to understand the consequences. they knew what they were and were not meant to do.

my belief on why the tree was there can be figured out by the following statement: "if there is no way to do evil, what use is a good action?"

man was created for God. in the shorter catechism, it is stated as follows: "Q: what is the chief end of man? A: Man's chief end is to glorify and enjoy God forever." we were made for God, for fellowship with Him. and we were given the opportunity to reject that, so that the choice of accepting it is given meaning. we were allowed to do wrong, so that it would have meaning when we do right. that's why the tree was there, and the option to sin was given, at least in my eyes.

God is in no way at fault for this, then. He gave the first human full ability to understand what they were told, and full reason to do so. He gave us the choice to do wrong, so that it would have meaning when we chose to do right (like when a friend gives you a gift. it's meaningless if you told them to give it to you) and so, it is fully the fault of Adam and Eve when they did wrong.

God and humans were in a much deeper relationship and in sync with each other, we knew much more and were much closer with God. When Adam and Eve disobeyed God, he took away that closeness to him, and thus instituting the necessity of Jesus and the Church: so that we may become closer with him, and so that we may reach eternal salvation with him

In Genesis 2:16-17 , God told Adam that he was free to eat from every tree in the garden, except the tree of knowledge of good and evil. God said that he would die if he ate the fruit.

There was no sin because humans were happier and together with God. Their disobedience created original sin and allowed for sin to enter the world.

Well, the story is a myth, so "they" didn't ever even exist...
but it is not for the plot so much as the idea. It is that God instituted a set of rules for us that we do have the knowledge of.

it doesn't really make a difference if i would or would not have, for one thing, though i probably would not have. it's also a different situation, to use your scenario and make it a bit more accurate, it's a man who spent one hundred years building a shelter against this and is asking you to sit in it for one day. that i may very well have done.

murder was an example i used. the other things mentioned were sodomy, aldutery, zoophilia, thievery, and the like not only being performed but also glorified in song and theater. these are more acceptable in modern society, and thought as less immoral than murder, but they are all the same level of sin.

you assume not everyone could be murder-machines, and correctly, that would burn it all out. but, in the text, all men were corrupt and totally intent upon evil. everyone was the worst kind pf human, except Noah. deep down in their hearts, that's all they wanted: to sin. they could not have been rehabilitated, except by direct and immediate intervention taking away all free will and restructuring them from a free human into a robot, which God will not do for anyone. it's not murder when a man is sentenced to the Death Penalty, it is execution. They were punished for living in a way nobody should live, and by the only perfect being; the only one given the right to bestow judgement.

how is it wrong for a man who has taken the life of another (or some other heinous crime) to have his life taken as punishment? either in a literal or virtual way? (being killed by the proper authorities after being convicted, or by working to replace the man he killed sold into either literal or virtual slavery, IE life sentence of hard labor or, in biblical times, or actual slavery [though even that slavery only lasted until the year of Jubilee when all slaves were set free, either to be hired by their former owner or to live their lives as they chose])
any other way would be forgiveness, which can only be done by the offended party.

i can understand how you believe all human deaths are murder, but some honestly and fully deserve death (all of us, in fact, according to The Bible, but i doubt you will agree with the why on that, so it can be dropped) even to modern morals. the fact is, there is a right and a wrong that we are born with and it's wrong to unduly take the life of another human being. In the same way, it is not wrong for the authorities set over men to justly take the life of a man who has sinned drastically and been caught in the act, or proven to have done so. The Bible has a set of guidelines for that, and places God as the one to carry out the judgement, and governments below to carry it out justly, or be guilty themselves and even more guilty, because they not only murdered, but they abused the power allowed them.

Well Soddam and Gamora is where SODDAMy and homosexuality originated and according to the bible (which I only partially believe) Moses and his family were the only true holy people left. Hitler only spared people because either they weren't a Jew, or the weren't retarded, or they weren't black.

True atheists don't make these types of posts to make theists butthurt. No, what we want is for theists to realize that religion is a lie that has been passed down generation after generation by parents that dared not to question the word of god. We want them to realize that god does not control your life, nor anyone else's. YOU DO. We want to free them from the ignorance of the past, so that we may continue on into the future as an advanced, and educated species.
