The story of Noah, his Ark, and the Great Flood may very well be one of the most famous stories of all humanity. It is a story that is remembered the world over. There are over 177 known versions of this ancient Flood story that wiped out all of humanity, except one Man and his family. It is such a universal story that it makes it very difficult not to believe that all the different versions of this story come from one source.
It is as if they all come from some long lost single ancient mother culture and tradition that gave birth to all other cultures the world over. Not only is there some type of version of this Flood story known by just about all people and cultures the world over, it could also one of the most controversial stories of all time.
One of the greatest and oldest debates about this ancient story is also the one thing that makes it so controversial in the first place. It is the ever famous part of the story of Noah being instructed to take two of each animal onto the great Ark. This is also a perfect example that next to nobody actually reads the Biblical story. For the story actually says that Noah was told by the LORD to take seven males and their females of the clean beasts and fowls of the air and only two of the unclean, one male and his female.
