    As a mechanical engineer, here is my 2¢

    Academic types want to analyze the problem to death, and are reluctant to act on it.

    Engineers like to roll up their sleeves and tackle the problem with an end goal in mind. ..... :cool:

    Nah, I don't hate him. I reserve that for people who really deserve it. I just see him as another snake oil salesman who will cross any line if there is a buck on the other side. YMMV.

    Well according to the parables of the sower and the tares, which were preached sequentially at least 87.5% of professing Christians are not believers. You may have noticed that the silence is deafening when anthropologists proclaimed the discovery of Adam even though the Y chromosome constriction was Noah not Adam

    The issue is the quality of what people are immersed in.

    I am not sure that the story of Noah is more than allegory for a great Black Sea flood when the Bosporus ice dam burst.

    But I am certain that God did judge mankind and found us wanting, even as today we are wanting.
