Reader comment on item: Musing on History
in response to reader comment: Floods of immigrants, and other floods

"It's the establishment that has been strange, thinking they can open the gates to this sort of thing without consequense. The voters have been quite sane. Anyhow, I doubt that Merkel is in as much trouble as the media puts her up to be; unless she continues to act like an idiot."

4 possibilities spring to mind: The establishment elite have not thought this thing through or they have thought it through - and want the resulting chaos their actions will cause in order to bring more power to themselves through more draconian security laws, more power to search and seize for no reason. The 3rd possibility - disenfranchise Germans from their culture - to 'divide and conquer' through multi-culturalism. 4: boost the German workforce by allowing the most educated Syrians to stay and then deporting or fobbing off the rest to other EU states to become 'other people's problems'.

"...As for the flood, the Bible dates it at around 2350 BC. There have been many floods in Iraq and Turkey over the years."

And of course none that could put a large wooden ship thousands of feet on the side of a mountain in Turkey. If floodwaters that high happened - it would be a worldwide occurrence. The British Isles and most of Europe would be flooded, a substantial part of the US and Canada - and most of Australia, Russia, China etc.

No such event is in evidence in geology

" You mentioned a notable flood fin 6450 BC. I won't dispute this -- it simply wasn't the BIBLICAL flood. In fact, it was 2450 years before Adam; so it has no place in the Bible narrative"

Shock, horror!
Would a lot of US Bible Belters would class that as some sort of heresy?
