The disgusting Noah's Ark genocide myth is just a fantasy for children. Why do some people still believe it? Why don't they grow up?
This is the 21st century FFS.

Indoctrination can be brutal..... For some, very traumatic.
Religion thrives on fear and guilt..... Religion lowers one's self esteem...
Religion does not encourage independent thinking.....

Because they don't want dead to mean dead for real. And an inerrant Bible is part of the scaffolding they've constructed in their mind in order to support the fantasy of an afterlife.

An appeal to ridicule is not a rational argument. Prove that it is only a fantasy, and your comments might even become intelligent.

Is Hilary Clinton the Antichrist in biblical terms. Has that time arrived.

Marine fossils in deserts. Plate tectonics did not do it.
Marine fossils in Grand Canyon. Plate tectonics did not cause them.
Pounce on the thumbs down all you want. Make me no never mind.
Kids are not taught that.

It is not disgusting but an engaging and powerful morality story.

Because some people are still stuck living in their bronze-age cult nonsense.

It's amazing, Eric, there are actually people who think the Bible stories are all true, even the silly Noah's Ark tale, when the fact is none of them are true.

Imagine if that story were true, what could justify the drowning of children and pregnant women.
You would have to be sick to see that as a positive story, anybody following such a god is following the paths of a monster

Evidences of Noah's Flood
Evidence 1: Fossils of sea creatures high above sea level due to the ocean waters having flooded over the continents.
We find fossils of sea creatures in rock layers that cover all the continents. For example, most of the rock layers in the walls of Grand Canyon (more than a mile above sea level) contain marine fossils. Fossilized shellfish are even found in the Himalayas.
Evidence 2: Rapid burial of plants and animals
We find extensive fossil “graveyards” and exquisitely preserved fossils. For example, billions of nautiloid fossils are found in a layer within the Redwall Limestone of Grand Canyon. This layer was deposited catastrophically by a massive flow of sediment (mostly lime sand). The chalk and coal beds of Europe and the United States, and the fish, ichthyosaurs, insects, and other fossils all around the world, testify of catastrophic destruction and burial.
Evidence 3: Rapidly deposited sediment layers spread across vast areas
We find rock layers that can be traced all the way across continents—even between continents—and physical features in those strata indicate they were deposited rapidly. For example, the Tapeats Sandstone and Redwall Limestone of Grand Canyon can be traced across the entire United States, up into Canada, and even across the Atlantic Ocean to England. The chalk beds of England (the white cliffs of Dover) can be traced across Europe into the Middle East and are also found in the Midwest of the United States and in Western Australia.
Evidence 4: Sediment transported long distances
We find that the sediments in those widespread, rapidly deposited rock layers had to be eroded from distant sources and carried long distances by fast-moving water. For example, the sand for the Coconino Sandstone of Grand Canyon (Arizona) had to be eroded and transported from the northern portion of what is now the United States and Canada. Furthermore, water current indicators (such as ripple marks) preserved in rock layers show that for “300 million years” water currents were consistently flowing from northeast to southwest across all of North and South America, which, of course, is only possible over weeks during a global Flood.
Evidence 5: Rapid or no erosion between strata
We find evidence of rapid erosion, or even of no erosion, between rock layers. Flat, knife-edge boundaries between rock layers indicate continuous deposition of one layer after another, with no time for erosion. For example, there is no evidence of any “missing” millions of years (of erosion) in the flat boundary between two well-known layers of Grand Canyon—the Coconino Sandstone and the Hermit Formation. Another impressive example of flat boundaries at Grand Canyon is the Redwall Limestone and the strata beneath it.
Evidence 6: Many strata laid down in rapid succession
Rocks do not normally bend; they break because they are hard and brittle. But in many places we find whole sequences of strata that were bent without fracturing, indicating that all the rock layers were rapidly deposited and folded while still wet and pliable before final hardening. For example, the Tapeats Sandstone in Grand Canyon is folded at a right angle (90°) without evidence of breaking. Yet this folding could only have occurred after the rest of the layers had been deposited, supposedly over “480 million years,” while the Tapeats Sandstone remained wet and pliable.
The evidence is real. God has revealed Himself to us in His Word and in His creation (Romans 1:20).
It just depends on your worldview. Either you believe in a creator God, or you don't. Your choice, but don't get mad like a child and call names and espouse inaccurate and false proclamations. All you've accomplished is to become known as a false person with bad grammar, in writing for all time. Go to your corner and be mad/bad.
