God Drowns Everyone

“Noah’s Ark” is often presented as a children’s story, and it’s easy to see why. It’s got animals, and children love animals. There’s a big boat. Some kids like boats. And it ends with a happy rainbow. Sure, somewhere in the middle there’s the gruesome drowning death of all the mothers, fathers, children, babies and animals of the world at the hand of their own loving Creator, but such unlikely children’s story material is more than justified by the profoundly important moral of the story, which every child needs to learn from an early age: Sometimes the best way to make a vast population of people less violent is to just kill everybody. The Flood and Noah’s Curse have been re-illustrated and unveiled on The Brick Testament website today.
