So we're talking 10^25 kJ of energy being released from a falling, condensing vapor canopy.

How would this affect the temperature of the atmosphere if it would not simply just re-vaporize any water? At about room temperature, air has a (constant-volume) heat capacity of about 0.718 kJ/kg/K. Using 5×10^18 kg for the mass of the atmosphere,

(10^25 kJ/5×10^18 kg)(1 kg·K/0.718 kJ) = 2.8×10^6 K

That is, Noah and family would be surrounded by water on the verge of boiling (100ºC) and air at 2.8 million degrees Celsius.


Regarding the above, I was recently asked,
Wait. Seriously. Does anything in this equation allow for the period of time over which the rain would have fallen? Doesn't it claim to have rained for forty days and forty nights? Would that have offset any of the heat caused by the release of energy?

I replied:

I suppose it doesn't. Some of the heat would have radiated out into space. So let's take the first day's worth, 1/40th of the rainfall. Let's assume that a ridiculous 90% of the heat radiates away in the first 24 hours. So 2.8 million degrees divided by 40, times 10%, gives -- oh, damn -- only 7000 degrees. Maybe 99% radiated away? 700 degrees.

And this is ignoring the original temperature. Imagine it was 99.9% that radiated away. That's still a temperature 70 degrees above normal temperature, or about 95 degrees Celsius (200+ F).

Remember, that's after only ONE day throwing away 99.9% of the heat.

There are a lot of assholes too, but we aren't called the Asshole Nation.
That depends on who is doing the talking.

Tea Party conservatism hurts children:
“We were convinced that it would be better for our kids not to have an education than to be educated to become humanists or atheists and to reject God,” Garrison says. “We became so isolated because the Quiverfull lifestyle was so overwhelming we didn’t have time or energy for socialization. So the only people we knew were exactly like us. We were told that the whole point of public school was to dumb down the children and turn them into compliant workers – to brainwash them and indoctrinate them into this godless way of thinking.”
Garrison believes that home schooling has become so popular with fundamentalist Christians because, “there is an atmosphere of real terror among some evangelicals. They are horrified by the fact that Obama is president, and they see the New Atheist movement as a vocal, in-your-face threat. Plus, they are obsessed with the End Times, and believe that the Apocalypse could happen any day now… They see a demon on every corner.
“We home-schooled because we wanted to protect our children from what we viewed as the total secularization of America. We listened to people like Rush Limbaugh, who told us that America was in the clutches of evil liberal feminist atheists.”
Home-schooled and Illiterate

"Religion, a mediaeval form of unreason, when combined with modern weaponry becomes a real threat to our freedoms. This religious totalitarianism has caused a deadly mutation in the heart of Islam and we see the tragic consequences in Paris today. I stand with Charlie Hebdo, as we all must, to defend the art of satire, which has always been a force for liberty and against tyranny, dishonesty and stupidity. ‘Respect for religion’ has become a code phrase meaning ‘fear of religion.’ Religions, like all other ideas, deserve criticism, satire, and, yes, our fearless disrespect." --Salman Rushdie
