I can't tell if your been sarcastic :laugh: anyway, i mean it confirms that it didn't exist in the first place because it would have to be much bigger to actually do what it was supposed to have done.

Isn't it written in the Bible that God would never destroy the world by water again? Isn't it also written that the next destruction would be by a cleansing flame?

[b]And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.[/b] - Genesis 9:11

[b]But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. [/b]- 2 Peter 3:10

It seems as though the particularly fanatical are most in-tune with committing acts of sacrilege.

I would say crazy is as crazy does but his business model seems on target. Good for him. (Y)

This wouldn't work so well in the US. Atheists would want all biblical reference removed...:rolleyes:
