Yeah, God’s promise that no matter how much he may regret his whole creation he will not attempt to destroy it all again by way of flood. It’s a pretty specific promise, not really comforting for an omnipotent being to say, of all the ways he could wreck everything, he’s putting THIS SPECIFIC METHOD off limits.
Oh my gahd. I suddenly understand why biblical literalists aren’t concerned by climate change causing the seas to rise. Well, you theoretical literalists, you can destroy a lot of creatures without it being all creatures, in which case your God would still be following his promise and we would all still be climate fucked.
