Selective Interpretation

 

God told Noah to build an Ark

giving him explicit instructions

(three hundred cubits long, by

fifty cubits wide, by

thirty cubits high)

and Noah built it as instructed

and whenever we draw Noahs Ark

we draw it as a lovely little ship

 

God told Moses to build an Ark

giving him explicit instructions

(two and a half cubits long, by

one and a half cubits wide, by

one and a half cubits high)

and Moses built it as instructed

and whenever we draw Moses Ark

we draw it as a rectangular box

 

and I wonder why

why do we interpret God differently

when we draw Noahs Ark

than when we draw Moses Ark
