Let us keep the flood out of this topic
Content withdrawn

[withdrawn]
Why should the flood story be excluded from that simply because you decide that it is a hyperbolic description of a real event ? How we interpret it does depend on the nature of the story.

There have been and will be more flood topics. While the flood may technically qualify to be in this topic, I think it should be excluded, for it would probably crowd out other considerations.

Certainly, you're welcome to start the "Hyperbolic Description of the Flood" topic.

No replies to this message, in this topic.

Per PaulK's quoted and his follow up complaint and per the here below discussion, I've withdrawn my previous opinion and that message content has been tagged as such.

I still think it would be good to exclude the flood from this topic, as "hyperbole considerations" are and have been covered in flood specific topics.

We shall now see if this turns into a flood topic.
