A Flood of Truth - Part 6 – All KINDS of Animals - Anchored by Truth - June 1, 2021 by Wave 94 published on 2021-06-01T19:49:27Z On today's program we start by looking at an illustration of one of the more popular mischaracterizations that is often used to try to discredit the Bible historicity regarding Noah and the flood. We're talking about the supposedly clever little quip that we heard on the popular TV comedy show The Big Bang Theory. Just about everyone who has even seen one episode knows that “Sheldon,” the genius physicist on the show, is a determined atheist but he has a mother who is a devout Christian. So, one time when talking about his mother, Sheldon acknowledges that she is a sweet woman, but he says that his mother believes that “all the animals in the world got on one boat.” The line is intended to be comedic but it wouldn’t have been included if the writers didn’t think that their audience would get a laugh at the “simpletons” who accept the Bible’s flood account as literal history. Well, popular culture poking fun at Christians isn’t exactly new, but we readily acknowledge there are legitimate questions about the animals that were on the ark that do merit explanation. And that’s the biggest reasons we do Anchored by Truth - to provide a starting point for listeners to understand that there are reasonable answers to reasonable questions. And when you understand the answers it reinforces the authenticity of the Biblical account.
