Noah, the ark, and 'salvation by elimination.'
I heartily endorse Fausto's recommendation that you listen to Scott Tayler's sermon, "The Religion of 9/12," delivered to the First Unitarian Church of Rochester, New York. I've listened to it twice already, moved and deeply impressed each time. That's good church. His theme, drawn out of competing interpretations of the story of Noah and the flood, is the dangerous dream of "salvation by elimination."
You can listen to the mp3 file either by streaming it over the Web or by downloading it to your computer. You can also subscribe to the church's podcast, which is what I did. (I use iTunes on the Mac, so I copied the subscribe link, opened iTunes, clicked the "Advanced" menu, selected "Subscribe to Podcast," and pasted the link into the box. The sermon loaded right into iTunes, and I copied it onto my iPod. Almost simple!)
