if you have mread the bible it read that, "over all the world there
came a dark cloud and it rained for fourty days and fourty nights."
Now this could be taken in several ways:
1. their known world was the middle east.
2. it realy rained over the whole world
3. it was wrong?

Has anyone figured this out? If there were an average rain storm occuring
across the face of the entire planet for 40 days and nights, would that be
enough to cover the world? If not, how hard would it have had to rain? Of
course, if it doesn't make sense the theists can just say that god made it
happen anyway.
