Match the Kinds

| 8 Comments
  • And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
  • Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
  • Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

(Genesis 7:1-3)

Can you find the kinds in this educational game? Noah’s Ark

I liked the “drown ‘em” graphic best.

Parting the Red Sea, yeah. But saving animals from the flood? Sorry, not part of my MOS.

No dinosaurs. We know they were on the ark. I want to drown dinosaurs.

They also forgot the woodworm. Noah took two they multiplied and it was just as well Noah built several arks and some disintegrated due to the woodworm boring Noah to bits

I wrote a little post on “kinds” in Genesis and Leviticus and what, if any relationship, they have to “species” a couple of months ago that might be of interest to some readers.

Could the discussion of kinds in Genesis and Leviticus actually be an early attempt at producing the first taxomic field guide based on phenetics. LEV 11:19 groups things with wings together. “And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.”

I cannot figure out why the Noah’s ark story is often pushed on kids. I have one of those kid’s Bible books on Noah’s ark, and when my boy asks me to read it to him, I must remind him of all the animals and people (including children) who did not get on the ark and were killed (if we take the story literally.) This is about the most nightmarish story in the OT.

I actually found the Egyptian plagues far more disturbing than Noah. Everyone knows that Moses tells Pharoah to let them go, Pharoah refuses, and God sends plagues. What the short versions leave out is that in just about all cases after the first plague, Pharoah is like “Boy, that sucked! Yeah, sure, you can go!”… Until God “hardens his heart”.

So, in summary: Pharoah wants to let Moses and his people go. God screws with Pharoah to make him say “no” instead. God punishes Egypt because Pharoah said no.

This is my problem with Christianity. Its diety is a dark, evil being who enjoys toying with people and deserves no respect from anyone, much less worship and adoration.
