Re: Creationists and the ARK
It is a shame that the Bible does not provide a more detailed list of
what animals were loaded...
1. All we have is a large boat...
2. 7 pair each of "clean" animals (domesticated livestock [mostly cattle,
sheep & goats, not pigs] & animals needed for ritual sacrifice [including
birds]). (Remember after the boat lands Noah offers 1 each of these as
sacrifice of thanks).
3. 2 each of everything else..."unclean" animals [non-domesticated
animals (wild beasts, rodents, etc.) & pigs, reptiles, other birds (not
used in sacrifice), insects & aracnids, worms, etc.etc.etc..... That is
alot of animals! Of course if we only consider those animals on hand
within the region...(hmm.)
4. What to feed them...lots of stores (straw)...not a variety of vegies
(they will spoil)...yep! that includes Noah and his wife and their 3 sons
and their wives, all eating straw?!
5. Only onboard activity for 40 days and nights of rain, PLUS the 180
days it took for the water to recede....sleep, and eat.
