Noah's Ark - The Real Story

You've either never read the Bible or you are a liar, because Noah did not bring two of each animal. He brought fourteen of each clean animal and four of each unclean animal. Read it for yourself. And weep. Then when you are done crying, throw away all your children's books that show two animals boarding the ark. Then write new books showing fourteen and four. Then you will be happier. Or maybe buy the board game below and play it with the right number of animals.

Genesis Chapter 7:

 1 And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

 2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.

 3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

Jeni, you rock. I knew that, but it didn't translate to my blog that way. You should be an editor! Thanks.
