Maybe it’s all the water … the rains and floods … that got me thinking about this again.
Here’s a column I wrote last year —“The Awfully, Incredible (R-Rated) Story of Noah,” that, among other things, asks:
“Why would someone take seriously a book that presents a story like this?”
(and, sneaking in a second question)
“Some will say this whole discussion is disrespectful. I understand. But are we not to read, think about and question what we read in any book, including the holy books?”
