Will You Help Me Find My Pink Unicorn?20 February, 2009
This morning, I got up for work at 0630 and (((Wife))) asked me, “Will you help me look for my car keys?”
I paused for a moment. (((Wife))) never (and I mean never) misplaces anything. I can ask her where my Queen 2-bladed hunting knife is and she will know. Exactly. To the point of telling me what is on either side. So after the pause, I said, “Sure. Where’s the last place you remember having them?”
She smiled. Then she asked, “Will you help me look for my pink unicorn?”
“You don’t have a pink unicorn.” I was getting confused.
“I know. Will you help me look for it?”
“Why would I help you look for something that doesn’t exist?” I asked.
“Because I am sane?” Of course, this was early in the morning, so that’s relative.
This conversation actually happened. And I immediately thought of a comment added to Noah’s Ark Was Found. Two Years Ago. Really. Posted by Theo before (((Wife))) decided to play games with my pointy little head.
There are many Christians who are just as skeptical of Bob Cornuke and B.A.S.E. as you are. He has no formal training as an archeologist, but he seems adept at making money off of his books and seminars.
Christianity Today debunked the same thing you are: http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2008/may/12.62.html
I agree that this makes Christianity look goofy, but don’t let the fringe be your reason for rejecting Christ.
So why do these Christians, these skeptical and reasonable Christians, think that looking for Noah’s Ark is goofy? Could it be that they know that the fairy tales of the Bible are just that, fairy tales? Why would anyone commit time and resources to finding Noah’s Ark if it does not exist? Why would someone try to prove God’s existence? Why would I help my wife look for her pink unicorn?
