Ok so i have to bite at some of these replies.
ok first off
This ship had a crew that was almost twice as large as that of the largest aircraft carrier we have ever built! The size of the ship approximated the size of Noah’s Ark. Up to ten banks
First things first you are on about a ship built 2000 years later!. A wooden vessel without iron bracing will buckle of that size, (isn't there a navel ship architect on this board ,or am i thinking of another one). You mention all it had to do is stay water tight, like that isn't a major deal. Ask yourself this why has none of these religious nuts ark builder built an ark of equal size and floated it.. simple you can't unless you use technology that wasn't described in the account, or invented at this time.
I actually didn't missed the ventilation part, but i would humbly suggested you work out the sheer mechaincs of that many animals on the ark, cracks, would not cut it.
But your last comment summed it it, when all else fails invoke faith...faith by definition is belief in something with no evidence OR against the evidence.
So with Wood and pitch the ark wouldn't have floated, if he had used iron bracing maybe, but you still have the tremendous forces pushing against the ark in a flood environment, Look at recent floods, our modern vessel capsize and sink during these heavy weather patterns, yet a wooden ark floats!. Like you said... Its faith to believe that.
And the next one
t’s interesting that the observed evidence for rapid formation of ice layers is also ignored. This can be seen in the squadron of P-38 Lightning fighter planes and B–17 Flying Fortress bombers of WWII. On July 15, 1942 they had to make an emergency landing on a Greenland ice sheet. The planes were abandoned. Later in 1988 the planes were found buried under 250 feet of ice!1 Much ice core dating is based on the assumption that one layer equals one year, but we have seen that such layers can form rapidly and more than one per year.
Exactly how deep is one layer? you jumped from a description of layers to a measurement of ice. REAL scientists that date ice cores, are aware that layer will change in size, but this is accounted for, by using other dating. This whole WWII plane things has been destroyed so many times as a claim for flood evidence of multiple ice cores, I would suggest you research some peer reviewed papers from scientists not whack job like answers in genesis or god forbid the WTS information.
That's a funny expression, a geologist that sets out to find evidence to back his faith, what a good way to do science. Actually I would like to see your references for your assumptions and claims in your Krakatoa,( i am not disputing the incident) but animal suddely appeaing again? .
Therefore, since evolutionists believe all organisms came from a common ancestor, migration between Australia and other areas must be conceded as possible by all scientists, whether evolutionist or creationist.
i actually done understand your point here, no one is saying that australia didn't get populated by evolutionary stages that originated in Africa. But if the flood is right that this couldn't have happened, as the current seascape of australia wouldn't allow any animal crossing to that country at all.
The problem with the flood starts at the beginning and doesn't end, every step of the flood account goes against what we can prove, science has shown, so it comes down to ignoring the evidence and using faith to allow the flood story to be taken seriously still.
I have yet to see any evidence that back up the idea that a global flood happened in the last 4500 years. It has nothing to do with how you view the data. creationist ignore and misquote data to arrive at their so-called eveince for a flood.
Awakened07, that what i started out doing, set out to prove the science wrong , and ended up at the same conclusion you have
