  •  "The biblical Great Flood" was not real, Senator. (4+ / 0-)

    The starting point for any "honest discussion" is acknowledging what's real and what's not.

    There was no world-wide, Great Flood.

    It never happened.

    It's an allegorical story, stolen from earlier religions from the Sumerian and Babylonian civilizations.

    Barton is like many highly religious Christians who have no knowledge of the history of their religion, and can't sort out the historically accurate from the "just so" stories.
