Genesis 9:20-27 NRSV Noah, a man of the soil , was the first to plant a vineyard. He drank some of the wine and become drunk, and he kay uncovered in his tent. And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. Then Shem and Japheth took a garment, laidit on both their shoulders, and walked backward and covered the nakedness of their father; their faces were turned away, and they didn't see their father's nakedness. When Noah awoke from his wine and knew whathis youngest son had done to him, he said "Cursed be Canaan;lowest of slaves shall he be to his brothers. " He also said "Blessed by the Lord my God be Shem; and let Canaan be his slave. May God make space for Jephth , and let him live in the tents of Shem; and let Canaan be his slave." after this let's see A great prophet got drunk ??? do you believe this ? He also layed naked ??? Because Ham saw himm he should be cursed and be slave ?? are you okay with slavery ??? P.S. Canaan is the father of arabs and Shem that of Jews Now it is clear who racists who thanx

yes noah is the decond adam as we say in Islam . But we don't say he allows slavery and we don't say that he got drunk ever . He is the greatest prophet and called in Islam ( o'ly al azm )meaning prohet who suffered so much for God . there are 5 of (o'ly al azm) they are Noah,Moses,David,Jesus,Mohammad . My point is to reveal the diviation in the bible from the truth

From what i understand Noah is not a prophet because prophets are sent by God to teach and to warn people about impending catastrophe or accidents.Although Noah warned his people about the great flood,Noah is not the prophet we know of,rather he is a man abiding God wholeheartedly.The issue you are raising against Canaan is an issue about morality.If you see your mother or your father naked.. will you do the same thing that Canaan did?

Racism, bigotry, slavery, and other issues are in the bible, at times they are fine, and other times not, I think that there are many issues in the bible that I disagree with. The books of the bible were collected by a group of men who were looking to use the text as a further means of establishing their own power and using religion as a means of controlling the people. This alone makes many of the interpretations questionable. That a group of 3rd century men none of whom wrote seem qualified were the ones to determine which books should remain and which books should be excluded has to make me wonder. The argument has been used that the bible was protected that the fact that it has been around so long is proof, yet there are other stories that are as old, if not older than those and they too are still around.
