Think about that logically and rationally, not emotionall or spiritually.. Is the story of Noah's Ark a Myth? Can you imagine how big that boat had to be in order to house 2 each of Gods creatures? Who informed the Penguins that there was a flood coming?... How did the penguins get transported to Mesopotamia in time to get on the Ark before the floods? Stories in religion often have not credible scientific ability to be true... Which means the religions credibility is questionable at best.

I wonder what Buddhists think about this great flood... I believe that all faiths have a difficult time in recognizing other faiths existence... Do Buddhists believe in such an ark?... Or does not 1.5 billion people matter to the other 1.5 billion?
As a Buddhist teacher, I can reply. The original teachings of Buddha discourage all concern w/ the creation or end of the world, or historical events. We focus on the elimination of suffering, here & now. Legends in Buddhism come from other sour
Sid ?, Does that Buddhist belief you have shared blind Christianity to the point of their being other philosophies in this world that should be respected and not made out to be inferior simply because they do not believe as a Christian believes ?
Some Xtians (including my wife, thank goodness) deeply respect and appreciate Buddhist beliefs & practices. Centering Prayer is an adaptation of Zen Buddhist meditation by & for Christians. Others, though, cling to Biblical Literalism or supe

I would still love to hear from some of the other 4.5 Billion People ( A HUGE majority) who do not believe in Christianity or have even heard of the story of Noahs Ark. Because too many Christians believe that they are the only worthy game in town.
Criticalmessage...I have noticed that you have been beating up on Christianity a little but. and making some unfair assumptions and generalizations. Have you realized this?
If you choose to percieve me as beating up on Christianity?... It is your perception that of which I can not, nor intend on dictate... A defensive reaction I do expect from Christians... Yet the same arrogance can be seen in fanatic Muslims as well..
That wasn't meant to be defensive. I do not actually care. I was just wondering about your motives in asking this question. You have seemed hostile towards answers that do not agree with your view. Did you ask this question looking for validity?
And how about those 4.5 billion people who really do not recognize of even know that a Bible exists... Are they wrong, less human to believe otherwise?... Is the Christian way to believe, the only right way to believe? A HUGE majority say NO !
