The first will demonstrate to climate change deniers that in the past man's actions have had consequences for the entire world and could again.
The second, no less important, could show to those who dismiss the bible as myth that it had answers for the problems then and could guide us now.

Not really scriven, I believe the Flood is mentioned in other religious texts besides the Bible.
Och Sandy, wheesht now.

and if there was no flood how did they get that big boat up to the top of mount ararat
The great flood myth exists in many religions and they are all implausible. I have posted this before, but not for a while :::

Indeed Sandy, and Superman the Movie demonstrated that a man could fly....except of course he wasn't a man because he was an alien species. I guess "You'll believe that a male alien can fly" didn't have the same ring. Brilliant films though.

It's a possibility that the numerous flood myths that have survived have their origin in post-glacial sea-level rises around 8-6000 BC. In some cases these were accompanied by catastrophic events, for example the Storegga Slide which may have caused the tsunami that finally inundated 'Doggerland', the land bridge between Britain and mainland Europe. Certainly these sea level changes would have removed ancestral hunting grounds and migration routes. It must have had a heck of an impact though for the tale to survive 3,000+ years until someone thought up writing.
Lol at Scrivens!
LOL scrivens !
Flood legends come from all corners of the globe, most notably recorded in the Epic of Gilgamesh which predates the bible. That said, for many very valid reasons, the story of Noah is complete nonsense.
Scrivens, I like it! :o)

But I sure it will serve to get GL cutting and pasting anytime now!

Scrivens, well it did take Noah 120 years apparently.
Mind you, he apparently lived until he was 950 years old, so it was completely possible that he had plenty of time to spend 120 years building a boat. :-)
Some people actually believe this story to be true ! I find that scary !
The Bible had answers?

It taught that one could buy absolution for sin by killing an innocent. It taught persecution and genocide of those who had different beliefs. It was in fact one of the lowest points in literature in the history of humanity.

Like its sequels and prequels the Bible is nothing more than the formalisation of the worst of human bigotry and prejudice.
