^ And it always bewilders me how people can say you can't understand God, and then provide any excuse you can and say that you know God did it for the reason you need him to have done so.

The box would have to be enormous in order to displace enough water to not sink from the amount of animals aboard.

It's very strange to see an article this nutty basically say that evolution is true.

The ark would have needed to have tanks for fresh and salt water fish, since the change in the salinity of the water would affect both types of fish.

And the ark would have to have on board every type of insect as well.

The only way the arguments in that article could make any sense is if they were conceding that evolution has occurred, and in fact claiming that it has happened way faster than in the evolutionary biology model. It also has some pretty shoddy explanations regarding insects and plants, and glosses right over the fish problem (i.e. a large percentage of sea-life can survive only in either salt water or fresh water, meaning that if the water covering the world was salt water, all fresh water sea life would have died).

Also...why didn't other boats float?


You're not going to bully me into reading links.

You can lead a fundie to information, but you can't make him think.

Also, good luck providing enough meat for the carnivores, and enough grain for the herbivores.

^ And enough water for everything that requires fresh water (assuming the water outside the Ark would be extremely salty).

We should also discuss the feasibility of all these creatures not killing each other and being able to successful reproduce well enough to repopulate the world... and still somehow be separated onto specific continents and islands and whatnot.

That's actually a really good point as well. Food.

An elephant eats upwards of 300 pounds of food per day. With two elephants on board, just to get through the month of flooding (not to mention all the time it would take for things to return to normal after the rain stopped, and for all the plants in the world to re-grow), it would take 36,000 pounds of food. Just for those two large animals.

Another thought: it's commonly argued that God guided the animals to travel to Noah so that he didn't have to literally collect them all (Bible Pokemon?). But how did animals like penguins or polar bears get there?

And another thing: Where the **** did all that water come from and where did it go after the flood? If it just evaporated, it would rain down and flood the world all over again.
