Did Noah Have Cute Galoshes?

There are so many stories in the Bible that I (among many people) have a hard time believing as truth.

A talking donkey. A sea splitting into two. A 90-year old woman giving birth.

Rain, Summer 2009, New York, Noah, Flood. From New York TimesI take these stories to be allegories.

But I’ve recently changed my mind on one famous biblical story, due to the weather pattern in New York this summer.

Rain for 40 days and 40 nights?

I now believe it. I feel like I’ve seen it.
