    The Bible gives us stories, that we might focus when these problems come in our life's. Let's look at one. Noah Ark, How many were saved at a whole world? Why was these people destroyed? Is the world in the same condition as then? , why was Noah, his wife, his son and there wife's the only ones saved? If you can answer these question you will know what we should be focusing on.

        Matthew 16:26
        For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

      Bible stories are only good for suckers who refuse to think for themselves and figure things out for themselves.
      Irrelevant how many were saved, but how many were actually destroyed by a supposed god.
      Because, the stories has to have some losers and some winners.
      No, we're much further advanced and it is the limited conscious thought process of the religious folk making it worse.

      Stated above- some winners and some losers.
      Focus on your life and quit interfering in other people's life.

      Haj:
      Your question is "What should we be focusing on?"
      My honest opinion?
      WE should be focusing on increasing the numbers of thinkers on this planet and ridding ourselves of those who are but obsequious followers, such as those who take you seriously.
      I am going to be honest and respond honestly. People who think like you, frighten the hell outa me!
      The history of people, such as yourself, have given lip service to love, peace and compassion, and operate in exact opposition to their words.
      Believers are imbued with clandestine guile and deceit.
      History PROVES me right!

        haj3396 - I am glad that you have found what makes your life complete.  I have found it too.  It might not be the same path as you, but living life without hostility and harm to others is my way.  It is about embracing all, without negativity.

    I have serious issues with the story of Noah, first being that yet again too few humans were left to repopulate the world without genetic inbreeding and all the illness that result.

    What I think we should be focused on is the here and now, who we choose to be each and every day. This is the one and only thing we can actually reasonably expect to control. So exercise self control and choose to be the person you want to be, don't worry about controlling others as you will fail!

      CONTROLLING OTHERS, DO YOU KNOW every time I tell you about Jesus Christ I put my life and my families life on the line. God ask me to do this and I believe in him.

        Why do you think you are putting any life on the line? If I really don't like what you say I will surely ignore you. Verily I say, I have a mind of my own and unto myself I place responsibility for my actions. The true nature of who I wish to be would not deprive you or anyone else of life for words alone. Not only am I no threat to you but I am no threat due to my choosing, not because God asks me to not hurt you. I control myself ya see big_smile

    Not sure if you'll get theistic approach from this but when you give more respect to life of others, then you are more likely to rise above all others to be saved. Noah thought life of many animals as worthy apart from his own and family. If you were to be a god, will you save a selfish person or person like Noah who tried his best to save others.

    Just one curious question to you, if you believe in noah's arc story, how noah managed drainage and smell issue, predatory/prey issue in the ship when he packed a lot of animals ?

    We should be focusing on the here and now you nutjob!! and really considering the possibilities of some mystical life message in a book that was a story book for children is just one of the most redundant things to dio in the history of Christs turd pit!

    Believe what you want, but don't force your shite on us who'd rather just get on with life and make something out of it, instead of this pile of rancid bollocks!

    Good day sir! and Noah how effing old was he supposed to be!!!!! the bearded spanner sack!
