After yesterday’s blog on a movie about the Noah flood, I got to thinking about what it would be like if the story were really true. What if it were really possible for a god to add so much new water to the earth’s atomphere, every spot on earth was under many feet of water.
Not all gods are as vengeful as the God of the Bible. But, let’s assume there was one who decided to start all over again with humans. He would again drown all the sinners and save only a handful from one good family.
Who would be the one alpha male and his extended family that would be saved and tasked with repopulating the earth with less sinful people? If we asked for a show of hands of people who felt worthy to be the family worthy of being chosen, millions of hands would go up. Perhaps included would be many who read this blog.
In the United States, there would be the assumption that God would choose someone from here. The most likely to be chosen, many would say, would be a white Protestant.
Would it be a Christian celebrity like Pat Robertson or Michelle Bachmann’s husband? Both have lots of children to start the repopulation.
The most sin free man in my lifetime, it seems to me, was Gandhi. But he is out of the running not only because he is dead but also was of the wrong race, nationality and religion.
