    It looks like questfortruth made the smelly gooney bird dump and then vanished in night leaving a trail poopey droppings.

    Wait, so the bible and various hindu scriptures speak of a massive flood, AND I can find many many online articles and books saying there is evidence for a worldwide flood... so does that mean both Christianity and Hinduism in their totality are true? Just trying to understand your logic.

    If you can't provide a strong reason in less than a few paragraphs why this book is worth my time, then why would I bother reading it? I may as well go read about how astrology is totally real or how 9/11 was cgi if I am expected to study every absurd notion presented to me without being given reason to.

    An interesting thread-- that is, the rebuttals are quite interesting. The OP, not so much.

    Reminds me a bit of Immanuel Velikovsky, and his widely discredited book, When Worlds Collide.

    I do find it somewhat sad, that people stoop to such easy to prove silly claims to bolster what they believe.

    If you Truly Believe in something? Why try to prove it using pseudoscience? That only tarnishes your Faith, IMO.

    Someone with certain faith, would have no need of such tomfoolery. Nor would they be bothered by anyone who didn't believe as they did...

    .... alas, that isn't so: Some folk's faith is so weak, they wish to pass laws enforcing it....! How sad is that?

    Folks - STOP giving out the "funny emoji" when you mean it sarcastically, - as they are counted as positive points.

    Just say very funny, or LOLOLOLO, or some such.

    Could you folks in charge, - add a sarcastic "funny emoji" that did NOT give positive points, since people are using the funny that way?

    Said troubled individuals need all the help they can get. It's not like they accrue much in the way of real points. :)

    I've read about half of the OP's linked book. Would anyone care to discuss the claims (or lack thereof) in this book?

    A big difference is that Hinduism is pretty open-minded and freely admits that many of its stories are metaphorical and allegorical. There are some Hindus who take the stories literally, but nowhere near the number of Christians who take the Bible literally. The Nasadiya Sukta of the Rigveda even ponders and questions how creation came about, rather than declaring. Nasadiya Sukta - Wikipedia

    Why? Are we really that bored? I'm gonna go garden for a few hours, LOL. Pulling weeds is far more entertaining and a better use of my time.

    I was hoping from a challenge by a supporter - but it would go about as far as your comment.

    When you're stuck in front of a computer for a few hours anyway, it's a nice bit of background amusement.

    *Spoiler Alert: It's pretty poorly written and contains only marginal attempts at pseudo-scientific apologetics. It's mostly just a rant about how rationalism causes similar Old Testament nonsense to warrant throwing out the whole of the Bible... And it tires to defend against that. It is really is as bad as the jokes being made about it.

    Hehe. I got that from the title page. Didn't feel a need to have a closer look. Obviously penned by some wing-nut.
