船 is not Noah @AiG

Someone brought this up in the blogosphere, and considering that I love to dabble in various things, such as linguistics (I am stuck on the aurality of fanny and fancy in U.K. English at the moment), I figured I’d show case some of the silliness here.

If you don’t want to watch it, click here to see a demonstration of the above insanity.

Way back when, when I was but a young lad, I heard this from a young earth creationist guild. Watching this video brought that rumor back.

Anyway, before you get all hizzy-pizzy, I want to call attention to a few things. First, the language used here is modern Chinese, and not ancient, before Jesus, Chinese. Part of this smut comes from a book by E. Nelson, who published a follow up book when this one was shown to be inaccurate and who would later go on to refute the claims. Nelson, by the way, is still touted as a scholar of repute by Ken Ham’s adult website. Ironically enough (ironic, because I have pointed out that Ken Ham is really preaching Seventh Day Adventist Doctrine), she is a Seventh Day Adventist. I hate to generalize groups, but by in large, “scientists” who hold fundamental SDA doctrines often fudge the facts.

If you take a gander at the reviews of those books, and do just a tad bit of a search on ye olde google, you’ll find enough holes to walk a dinosaur through or at the very least, not post stuff like this on blogs where people may think you are endorsing it.

Amen.

    • there is worse, true, but when you take into account the figure of Ellen White, the production of YEC and KJV from out of the SDA, the rise of false eschatological interpretations… and the inability to question those in SDA leadership or even SDA doctrine…

        • I’m not sure I would agree, since they tend to believe Daniel and Revelation are about the “end times.” Of course, I say this having to use an SDA scholar’s work on the literary structure of daniel
