Letter writer's statement doesn't make sense

Editor, the Advocate:

In response to the March 3 letter to the editor "Court decision shows US will end soon":

In reference to the third paragraph, "and God was so angry that He destroyed all but seven sons," where did the writer get that information? The only people left when the earth was destroyed by water were Noah, his wife, three sons and their wives, which adds up to eight people, not seven sons.
