    Maybe the Film 2012 was predicting it. That's what happened, the world flooded and all the human race that survived ended up on giant Boats.

    Yep, been going on for years.

    Iím told that about 4300 years ago a great Stockman and Boat Builder named Noah built a big boat and loaded two of every animal on.

    Unfortunately, the boat fell off its Foils on Mount Ararat but all survived the grounding.

    Good to have a happy ending isn't it.

    It won't be a problem at the Suez - once the water level rises the canal will get miles and miles wider than it is currently
    Just gotta beware running into submerged buildings and the odd pyramid or sphynx.

    Yes, you should have seen my garden after our small short term flood.
    I wonder how all the plants survived that one?

    And then the animals made the long journey to various parts of the world (australia for instance), what the hell did they eat during the time of travel, waiting for all the prey animals to breed back to sufficient numbers and all those dead rotting plants to grow back?

    Also what did that boat builder feed all those creatures? Imagine the storage needed just for the food.
    And that's just the herbivores, what about the predators?

    Oh hang on, that probably explains the unicorns and such - they got eaten by the big cats...

    Just one or two of the questions no-one religious ever asks.....

    Oh, food was no problem. Just need a few loaves and fishes in the pantry, and *poof* - food and beverage problems solved.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche
