neither one of us believe that Noah's flood ever happened; all credible science points to its being a myth. (trying not to mention the resurrection) (trying not to mention the resurrection) (trying not to mention the resurrection) Eeaaghh! All credible science points to ALL the magical stuff in the Bible being myths. Hubbard had people destroyed for real, and the CoS still follows his example today. CoS has been around less than a century, and Christians were executing 'infidels' as far as 1600 years after the religion was founded. And again, Jesus preached about the New Testament "loving father" God, not the Old Testament "mighty smiter" God. The loving god of the NT and the smiting god of the OT are just different aspects of the SAME god. The OT is not just some archaic mythology in the history of Christianity. If it was, why would the OT be included in the Bible and quoted in church services?
