This is a little tough for me. Because, sure, there are things that are incongruous and just flat wrong in Genesis (and other creation stories) from pretty much the first couple sentences on.
But poking fun at archaic stories can sure end up looking like ridicule of one's beliefs. And while the former is fine for, really, any kind of story, the latter is distasteful to me. So I tend to stay out of these discussions.
Tend to. It's no guarantee, though.

Keeping in mind that I'm a Christian, studied the Catechism and all that. It's just some good-natured ribbing. (get it?)
I'd paraphrase Walter (see Jeff Dunham) on his attitude about the 72 virgins thing, but I don't want to get any mods riled up.
...Achmed did a pretty cool riff on that as well...
Don't try to make sense out of Genesis. The Pentateuch is not necessarily real events. It's our way of explaining that which we do not understand. Our creation stories, if you will.
That's another question. What did the lions and tigers (all the carnivores) eat on the ark? What poor species didn't make it? LOL
Kentucky Fried Chicken
The best possible answer.
Incongruities...when the self-proclaimed "pro-choice" crowd demands that nobody be permitted to keep and bear arms...when the so-called "pro-choice" kool-aid drinkers demand a woman be allowed to murder the child growing in her womb while simultaneously demanding the same woman (included in the group: the people) forgo all and any choice in the matter of keeping and bearing arms for protection of the same holy body. What? That woman on the way to the abortion clinic doesn't have the right to keep arms to protect the same body? What's that noise? Oh man, that's the noise of all manner of panties doing the twist.
SULLY! SULLY! SULLY!
The unicorns didn't make it, of course! Don'tcha remember the song?
Yeah, when I think of the ark running aground, and I think of the koalas backstroking back to Down Under, and the three-toed sloths wearily splashing their way back to South America, not to mention the extinction of all the fresh-water life since the seas overwhelmed the rivers and lakes, it makes me unutterably sad. Well, except for the fact that I seem to be uttering it anyway.
The way I look at it is to realize that there are always going to be certain things which despite being facts I'll never understand until a certain time arrives when I'm ready to because only then I'll be capable to. This realization doesn't mean I won't meanwhile be trying to understand things and studying sensibly to. This attitude consequently allows me to accept what seems incongruous as probably something outside my ability to gather, yet okay there.
I appreciate what Granpa is saying when he chooses not to respond when it comes to certain things. I make the same choice a lot at this site because I want to see the peace kept here; and so certainly don't want to become a reason it's lost. There are certain things the discussions of which belong in certain places predesignated by a society. We are a society. We've designated the places. Now, in case this thread is one of them, I'll see ya 'round.
