- I need to do more studying of these matters, before I can present these subjects in the fullest light. Both creationism and the flood are complicated subjects, and I want to do the best job that I can of presenting them. I'm still thinking about the best way to accomplish that.
- One focus of this blog is on Biblical genealogies. I'm trying to examine passages which give information about these matters, so I'm skipping ahead to these passages. However, at times I need to mention certain events which may occur between these passages so that they will make sense in context.
What does this have to do with genealogy? Well, in the process of telling this story, Genesis chapter 9 reveals that Ham is the youngest son (v. 24), that he has a son named Canaan, and that Noah lived 350 years more after the flood, for a total lifespan of 950 years. (There is probably a lesson here for those of us who are interested in genealogy to pay attention to even seemingly irrelevant family stories. Those little details may become important in the future.)
