Bill Maher flanked by the sycophants of the tri-table unleashed his acrimony on the Noah narrative in the Bible and the movie by the same name. Bill says the story of Noah is “about a psychotic mass murderer who gets away with it, and his name is God” who “sent a flood to kill everyone! Everyone! Men, women, children, babies.” He says Christians are mad because the movie “doesn’t stay true to their made up story.”
So tell me, how is God a “psychotic mass murderer” if the flood is a “made up story?” Here’s a newsflash Bill, no humans were harmed in a “made up story.” If Bill believes the whole idea of God is made up his logic is even more absurd, he is accusing a made up god of being “a psychotic mass murderer.”
If the Bible is a book like any other book it would be like Bill’s logic, incomprehensible, unbelievable. But if the Bible is supernatural in its inspiration and preservation, if it reveals the God who is more powerful than we could imagine, created everything, knows everything, is more holy than we can conceive, more just than we have a right to expect, and more loving in His actions than we deserve, then maybe we can begin to understand the Bible.
Like Bill Nye, Bill Maher wonders how Noah using ancient tools and technology with only his three sons for help built an ark the size described in the Bible? I don’t know. How did the ancient Egyptians 2500 years before Christ build the Great Pyramid of Giza, who using ancient tools and technology, moved 2.5 million stones weighing between two and seventy tons, and laid with such precision as to rival and even in some instances surpass modern architectural achievements? I don’t know. I don’t think Bill does either, since the scientists he claims to have so much confidence in haven’t figured it out.
We already know Bill is smarter than his make believe god (not such a feat really), but did you know he is more moral than his make believe god? Bill’s not saying, but his high moral standards were probably shifted out during his many discussions with his buddy Hugh Hefner at his Playboy Mansion. If his make believe god was wrong for drowning babies, I am sure it is just a matter of time before Bill’s pro-life, anti-abortion sentiments surface.
“The first to plead his case seems right, until another comes and examines him,” Proverbs 18:17. Bill thinks he is smart and moral as long as he does all the talking, but a closer examination tells a different story. Right now it is profitable and even fashionable to mock a silly, stupid, immoral, make believe god. They did in Noah’s day, but the laughing stopped when it began to rain.
I could say more about Bill’s make believe God, but I think you get the picture. The next swimming event on God’s schedule will be held in a lake of fire. I would think about that.
