The flood never happened, although most Christians think it did literally, not metaphorically. To Christians, its a warning against not doing what God tells you to do. For atheists, its a message that the Christian God, if he eixsts, hates his own creation and obviously has alot of shabby work being produced. Cant He do anything right?
I don`t know if I was too clear, or if this is something believers can answer:1. Why did God flood the earth?2. Did God achieve His desired results?3 If He didn't, how is the second clean sweep of the world's evils going to have the desired result?
This translation of an ancient Cuneoform tablet found in Mesopotamia might shed a clue:Wash in cold water only. No bleach. Hang in firmament to dry.
