After the entire ark is loaded up, the rains begin, as first explained in Genesis 7:10.
Noah was supposed to get two or seven of all the birds in existence, but what about all of the other ones on Earth? Let's say you're a bird in the middle of a rain storm. Suddenly, the tree you're perched on is consumed with water. What are you going to do? Stay in the tree and drown or fly away? Tough decision, right? Now you're flying through heavy rains and you see a really big wooden brick floating in the sea with absolutely nothing else in sight. Your wings are getting sore and you're tired of flying against the wind and rain. Do you think, just maybe, it would be a good idea to land on the big wooden rectangle? Then, you notice a hole with heat and light coming out. Maybe it would be a good idea to fly into the hole and get out of the rain, no? Okay, multiply that times a million, and you can picture what Noah could expect from that one window on his ark and the constant assault of flocks of birds and climbing animals trying to get into his ark. What about that thatch roof? How will that stop an army of desperate animals? Let's just hope that gopher wood is woodpecker-proof!
Today is December 25th, a very important day to a great number of people, and more recently, it has become very popular with Christians. The Wikipedia article on Christmas is quite lengthy, but in particular, read about the history of Christmas if you want to know the real reason for the season.
Through the years, people have made a tradition out of emulating a famed trio of astrologers, the three wise men, by giving gifts for Christmas. For those of you who feel obligated to do so, you can give me the gift of free-advertising by sending a link to this comic to your friends and being sure to vote each time you visit.
