An Earth Day lesson
In this season of Earth Day, the biblical story of Noah (Genesis 6) has particular meaning. This year we even have a feature film telling the old story of God planning a human extinction but relenting and directing Noah to save creation. So Noah protects the creatures in pairs and in sets. Is there a modern lesson in this?
Watching the film was some sort of other lesson! Perhaps a species is ripe for extinction who can sit through and be entertained by a 15-minute film simulation of rampage: of trampling and breaking, bloodletting, gashing and drowning of its own kind.
