UPDATE: this is on now, so anybody sees this, report in. The most recent snippet indicates that the show is trying to show that the “Great Flood” happened. Now there’s evidence of a very rapid rise in the level of the Black sea about 5600 BC when the Mediterranean breached the Bosphorus, but the rapidity of that “flood” was controversial, and it certainly wasn’t the worldwide flood described in Genesis. Perhaps it was the source of that myth, but let’s see how ABC presents it.
Few journalists have impressed me like Christiane Amanpour, famous for her pull-no-punches reporting and bravery under fire while reporting on war. She started with CNN, but is now working for ABC, too.
So, given her reputation, what the bloody hell is she doing reporting on the miracles of the Bible? Yep, this Friday at 9 pm on ABC, Amanpour will investigate the veracity of the Good Book. The dire preview here asks questions like, “Did Noah’s Flood happen?”, “Where is the Garden of Eden?”, and “Where is the Ark of the Covenant?”
I hope the answer to the first question is “NO!” and to the other two, “Nowhere!”. But somehow I don’t think that will be the case. Some reader please watch it and report back; I don’t think I can bear to see Amanpour’s reputation go down the drain.
