villabolo - True true... that's the famous creationist tactic of arbitrarily changing the rules in the past because the rules in the present won't allow their crazy theories.
Documentary About The Flood and Noah's Ark
Don't forget the famous creationist tactic of calling non-creationists "baby killers".
Ah yes... and then there's the other famous creationist tactic of running and hiding from a thread when one knows his ass has been handed to him.
parakeet, Sorry, I'm sticking with "hideous" on the possums. I think they would have kept the kangaroos sedated with hemp or something.
villabolo, Pigeon Rex, damn, imagine them crapping in-flight... "bombs away"!!!
TD, Chester Cheetah says "Hey, you don't need biodiversity when you're this cool!"
"Hey, slide me some skin... grafts!"
This kills me... People who believe in the flood, why not just use plain and simple logic????:
For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered. The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than twenty feet.
Mount everest is 29,000 feet. So the ark was floating at 29,020 feet. Do you think Noah and the animals could survive at that altitude with thin oxygen and at a temperature of a maximum of -36C(-33F)??? How about for 150 days?
Every living thing that moved on the earth perished--birds, livestock, wild animals, all the creatures that swarm over the earth, and all mankind. Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died.
Well no f***ing kidding! Do you realise how much PRESSURE 29,000 feet of water would generate on the land below? It would DECIMATE all life forms, including plants, bacteria, fish, and all animals (never mind the fact that light cannot penetrate that depth... ever cover your lawn for more than a few days with a tarp or a blow-up pool? Notice the grass dies quickly???). The earth would be barren and lifeless. I wonder what the animals of the ark ate once the floods receded if all plant life was eliminated? Did Noah save 2 of every possible plant? Also, does the bible say it rained or SNOWED at that altitude?
Also, aquarium enthusiasts have a hard time keeping fish alive in fresh water tanks. Just a small amount of salt would kill any fresh water fish... never mind a small change in temperature of any other water condition. A global flood would kill just about any fish out there.
Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; men and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds of the air were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark.
Try explaining how millions of species survived. Or better yet, how they migrated to their eventual natural habitat. Can you imagine an amazonian frog migrating the long trip when it's susceptible to slight changes in it's existing environment?
The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days." Genesis 7
Right, nice round number. How long would it take for 29,000 feet of water to evaporate? It would have to be awfully hot and windy! I mean REALLY HOT and WINDY. Could Noah survive? And where the HELL did the dove find an olive branch , when according to the BIBLE ITSELF all was destroyed (and we know the plants could not survive such high pressure)?
I saw a more plausible documentary. It said that the Black Sea was a shallow lake, until a land barrier that kept the Med at bay collapsed, causing a huge flood. Cant remember the exact figures, but the Black Sea is about 600 feet deeper now. There is evidence of streams flowing in and ploughs abandoned in the fields. In Turkey they still make what is known as "Noahs Pudding." HB
The event you're referring to is the cataclysm at Lake Euxine (aka the Black Sea). It happened around 5600 BCE and triggered one of the largest mass movements in human history into Europe. I think it would be really fascinating if stories of this event passed through the generations and eventually became the basis for more well known deluge stories, like the one in the Epic of Gilgamesh.
I think the whole thing was just made up.
Only got to page 4.....wasn't part of Noah's Ark found on top of a mountain somewhere? That's what I've always been lead to believe anyway. Someone enlighten me, please?
Well no f***ing kidding! Do you realise how much PRESSURE 29,000 feet of water would generate on the land below?
88.88Mpa which is 877.2 Atmospheres or 26246.5 Inches of mercury (if you are a little behind the times)
Err no, no one has found Noah's ark.
