Ben Avuyah has written another deliciously disturbing story.
In terms of the Mabul, why did the children deserve to die? If one wants to say it's because their parents were wicked and would therefore raise them to be wicked, well, that won't work, because Rebecca was the child of wicked parents, wasn't she? So even if we believe that God said "all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth" and therefore, because the "earth was filled with violence" He will "destroy them from the earth," why did the children have to die?
Aren't the children innocent? What wickedness could they have possibly perpetrated against God? What about the infants and newborns?
I love how his story means that I have to completely rethink my understanding of Noah and the Ark...from a much darker point of view.
