Letter to the Editor
I personally like the fact that movies like Noah are in theaters because it raises the question, was the story of Noah real? If we went back in a time machine would we see the great flood? Would we see an Ark filled with two of every animal? Is this really True or are these just stories?
For us in the Reality based community we welcome these discussions because what is and isn’t real is important to us. We believe Reality should be part of the religious discussion. So any time Reality is being discussed we think it’s a good thing. We want people talking about the Bible in the context of Reality. What is real? Did the stuff in the Bible really happen? We Realists believe that the word Reality is a sacred word and every time anyone says the word Reality the world gets a little smarter.
